  • Are you ready to renovate your home?

    Maybe you’ve had the same color on the walls of your bathroom for the last 20 years. Maybe you haven’t updated your kitchen since you moved to Cleveland back in the 90’s. Whatever the case might be, you want to make a change, but before you pick up the power tools you need to consider a few things.

    Renovations can certainly range far and wide in price and the amount of time you put into them. Obviously, a lot of that hinges on how much of a room you want to change. This is why a plan is so important. Without it, costs often exceed initial expectations and renovations can take much longer than first thought. The pictures you see in this post are of a recent Cleveland renovation Reilly Painting and Contracting completed. Our work order, which breaks down each part of the job, allowed us to finish this renovation within our budget and time frame.

    As you develop a plan, you should start researching online what others have done. This can often be a cost-cutting measure and spark inspiration. Whether you are doing the renovation yourself or working with a contractor, visual images can be the key to the end result looking like you what you had imagined at the start.

    You also must determine the urgency of the project. If you have a serious problem like mold or a leak, you shouldn’t put off the work. Letting it linger runs the risk of sinking even more time and money into renovating. Setting deadlines, as you would at work or a school project, will keep you on track.

    Lastly, go for a look that’s timeless. Trends often come and go, and if you are paying the money to completely change a room, you want it hold its value over the years. Choose materials that fit your lifestyle and taste, but also factor in the longevity of the products and design.
