A whole-home remodeling project is a big commitment and investment. It’s a fun project to improve your home’s functionality and style. Here’s how you can maximize your whole-home remodeling project.
1. Plan Ahead
Include in your whole-remodeling plan your future improvement projects. It’s best to plan and prepare your home for upgrades that you are considering down the road. If you’re thinking of installing air conditioning or other electric appliances, you should install an electric circuit. You would thank yourself for being prepared ahead of time. A whole-home remodeling is a perfect time to add these little adjustments that would help your future projects.
2. Upgrade Your Electrical Panel
While your whole home is under construction, you should upgrade your electrical panel, especially if you are adding rooms and other home functionalities that require electricity. Make sure to contact your trusted electrician to run new wiring and install new outlets. It’s also a good time to have an outlet outside when you’re adding exterior living space.
3. Always Consider Your Water Supply
To help you maximize your whole-home remodeling project, you should look carefully at your water supply. If you’re adding bathrooms and extending your kitchen, your water supply should be upgraded, too. Consult with your contractor and plumber to make sure you have enough water supply for all the new adjustments in your home.
4. Get the Right Gas Meter
Now is also a good time to upgrade your gas meter, especially if you’re adding more gas appliances to your home. You may also just opt for a larger meter now if you’re considering adding more gas appliances in the future. This will save you money and time as well as motivate you to get your dream barbecue or fireplace in the future.
