Anyone who’s lived at home during a home renovation knows there are some sacrifices that need to be made during your family’s daily routine.
There will be disruptions, noise and dust, and how much of it will depend on how largescale your home renovation project is.
These disruptions are welcomed when you think of the big picture. The end result is a beautifully renovated home that you can be proud to call your own. In the meantime, here are our tips for living in your home during a home renovation.
Set Up Temporary Living Conditions
Perhaps you move into the guest room for a few weeks or move your kitchen items to a different room. Whatever the temporary living conditions are, make sure you have a plan set up to avoid living in the middle of a construction zone.
Stay Prepared and Organized
Keep track of deliveries, the times of day your contractors are working, and other renovation items to stay organized and prepared for the disruptions in your routine. Knowing the daily renovation plans will make it easier to adapt to the changes.
Don’t expect the house to be quiet if you need it to be. If choosing to live at home during a home renovation, know there will be disruptions. If you need a quiet place to work during the day, it would be better to leave the house for the work day while renovations are underway.
Plan a Trip
This is a good time to plan that family vacation you’ve been putting off. Planning a trip during a home renovation will make the renovation timeline go much quicker and simultaneously give your family a nice break. When you come back nice and refreshed, your home will be that much closer to being completed.
