What Lifestyle Change, If Any, Do You Want? Think about the lifestyle change you want to make with this project. If you are expanding your counters in the kitchen, you may be looking to create more space for cooking. A simple project such as a paint job may not involve a lifestyle change, but that is okay.
Taking the time to plan is everything.
“If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll end up someplace else” – Yogi Berra
How Do You Plan To Accomplish This? Every plan needs an execution, and you need to determine yours for this project. You may be planning a DIY project, or maybe you are going to hire a contractor. Your plan should also include the steps you are going to take during the project itself.
How Long Do You Plan To Live In The Home? How long you plan to stay in your home determines if the project is worth the time and money. A functional kitchen works for a temporary and forever home, but a bar in the basement is not necessary if you are moving next summer.
Is Your Lifestyle Going To Be Changing Soon? You want to make sure your goal works for your current and future lifestyle. A finished basement can be used as a hobby room now and home gym later.
Other Considerations: There are other considerations to keep in mind during and after the project, such as children, pets and medical issues.
