When it comes to renovations, plenty of people have made mistakes that you can learn from.
To start, don’t treat it like an HGTV remodel, be realistic, and be prepared for many outcomes. Chances are things won’t go perfectly according to plan so be flexible and don’t let it stress you out.
Family Handyman said, “Be flexible and know that things happen, and that may cause your project to take a bit longer than expected.”
Finally, don’t make the mistake of trying to do too much yourself. Know your abilities and your limits because trying to DIY things yourself that you’re not comfortable doing can be costly and even unstafe. Call the professionals when it’s time!
