Make a List

Often when it comes to home improvement projects, it’s easy to find multiple projects and things that you want to change, once you start looking around your home. Simply beginning to think about all the aspects of your home that need to be changed can become incredibly overwhelming. As you begin to think about what you want to change, make a list. This list can either be a physical list that you keep on your fridge or one that you save in your phone that has periodic reminders. Regardless of method, make a list of those changes you would like to make to your home.


Next, after you have established your list, begin to prioritize. The deciding factors for how you prioritize will depend on you and your situation. For some, the deciding factor will be to simply look at the budget needed to complete the project and that which is available. Or you may prioritize based on an event that you may be hosting in your home. You may need to prioritize based on the timing of events and your ability to complete the project. Whatever method you choose, pick your project that you are going to focus on first.


Once you know what project you are going to focus on first, let yourself dream about what you want. The best way to get an idea of all the possibilities for your remodel is to research online, look at websites such as Pinterest, and home improvement magazines. Though depending on your budget, you may not be able to completely copy those things that you have found that you like, you can at least get an idea as to what you like and what you are actually looking for.
