While undergoing a home renovation there must be things that make it late in the process. One of the reasons is inadequate planning. As a result, the project has to stop, rebuild, or is hampered by other problems.
Time constraints are common in the home renovation process. Even though this can have an impact on spending additional funds. In order not to get caught in trouble, it is necessary to prepare a renovation plan in a coherent and thorough manner.

Discuss with the family the priority areas for house renovation. Next, determine the maximum funds provided for renovations. We recommend that you leave 20% of the funds as reserves.
Then find an architect or interior designer to help design. The results of the renovation will be guaranteed and proportional to the costs incurred.
2. Design Stage
Express all the needs and desires of an architect or interior designer. They will filter the client’s information and desires for design considerations.
Do not hesitate to put a limit on funds. An architect or interior designer will provide a working drawing according to renovation needs and available funds.
3. The preparation stage
At this stage, determine the contractor who will build. Negotiate prices and enter into written agreements. If funds are limited, the foreman can be an option to replace the contractor, especially for small-scale renovations.
Use a recommendation from a friend or relative to select a foreman. At this stage, you can also fix the house that will be renovated, such as moving furniture to another room or to a temporary rent.
4. Renovation Stage
Starting with demolition at predetermined points. Select the dismantled material that will be discarded, reused, or disposed of. After that structural work, such as foundations, columns, beams can be started.
Furthermore, architectural work, such as walls, floors, and ceilings. Then mechanical electrical work in the form of installing plumbing, electricity and electronics. Next is the cover job, such as painting, wallpaper installation, to the layout of the furniture.

This stage is more about cleaning the tools, materials, and the overall renovation site. Working tools such as nails, sandpaper, wire, pieces of wood and those that can still be used can be stored.
For paint containers can be used as pots or water reservoirs. Don’t forget to write down the code number and paint brand if you want to repaint with the same color.
