While we all wish we had unlimited funds to use on our home remodeling project, we know thatâ€™s simply not true.Â Take a good look in the mirror and think about how much you are willing to spend and how much you should rationally spend.Â Take into account your income, monthly expenses, and always leave a cushion for unexpected expenses which may come about at any time.Â This is a discussion that should be had with the rest of your family so everybody is on board from the very start.Â Arguments and discussions due to a lack of communication is not an added stress that you would like to encounter. Conducting extensive research can save you a great deal of money and enhance your home remodeling experience.Â A great resource you can use is the Greater Houston Builder Associationâ€™s (GHBA) website.Â The GHBA has countless articles on choosing a contractor, design tips, building green, etc.Â Learning from otherâ€™s mistakes can prevent you from making the same mistakes during your project.Â K&N also has several resources at your disposal.Â If you are on a tight budget, check out our blog on designing on a dime.Â Hardware, paint, and appliances are just a preview of some of the subjects covered in this article.
