When people start renovating homes, they tend to make some common mistakes. The first mistake is that they worry way too much about the next person who will be in the house. Everyone has different tastes and preferences, so it’s impossible to predict what the next person will like. People also tend to cut out things they really want during their renovation. Instead, learn to keep those things and cut things of lower significance. Finally, don’t rush the process of renovation as it does take time and rushing it will cause you short and long term problems.
- Don’t worry about the next person that is going to be in your home, just renovate for yourself.
- Don’t get rid of things that you really want to include. Figure out something else to cut and keep what you want prioritized.
- Don’t rush the process. Renovations take a while and are a step by step process. If you rush, you can make major mistakes.
