with good weather finally upon us, the first thing on everyone’s mind is what’s next on the list of endless renovations needed around the house. Whether it’s updating the bathroom fixtures, landscaping the garden, or remodelling the kitchen, regardless of what you do, make sure you plan ahead.

One of the biggest mistakes any individual can make in a home renovation is to launch into a do-it-yourself construction project without any planning. Make sure you have your checklist ready! This includes a good reputable contractor - if you don’t have one, ask friends or neighbours, or visit your local design centre for names. It also includes having a budget in place, with financing organized with your caisse, credit union, or bank. Don’t forget that outdoor renovations, in particular painting, require good dry weather, so pick the right months for your area.

Using a quality contractor, such as, can be advantageous, especially if there is significant money involved. Just think of it this way, would you prefer running a building project yourself, or would you prefer having experienced professionals with their own team of contractors do it for you? Time, money, and stress are important things to consider; however, so are issues such as the quality of the workmanship in your powder room, kitchen, or bathroom.

Another important tip is to budget your time frame conservatively, since more than often materials, trades, and financing takes a little longer than planned for – after all, spring is when everyone is renovating! There’s nothing worse than promising the in-laws that perfect kitchen, only to find that a delay sets you back by a week.

Selecting the materials to use in a home renovation is also important. If you are working with a contractor on a kitchen or bathroom, don’t be shy to browse companies such as for free ideas, as well as itional product options. In addition to offering ideas for free, online kitchen and bathroom retail companies such as offer products that may not typically be available in your area, and usually at a significant discount. The Internet is a great way to window shop for ideas, while also gaining access to unique home finishings from farther afield.

So when launching into the spring renovation, set your priorities right, make sure your budget and financing is set, pick a good contractor, shop around, and don’t be shy use the Internet to expand your reach to products beyond your local area. Most importantly in any home renovation, make sure you have fun!
