Whether you live in York County, Yorktown, Hampton, Newport News, or somewhere clear across the country, transforming your bathroom or kitchen can be an exciting experience. A new layout, upgraded appliances, and personalized touches can help you create the space of your dreams. However, for many, remodeling projects can also be stressful. While it’s normal to have questions and even some fears, there are few things you can do to help you breeze through your next remodeling project.

  1. Plan: Minimize disruptions by planning your remodel during a time that is convenient for your family. Schedule your remodel for when you can be away from the house or can easily make accommodations to your routine. Designate a space ahead of time to serve as your temporary kitchen or bathroom while construction is taking place.
  2. Pack: Before your remodel begins, take time to pack up the space. Use this opportunity to throw out or donate what you don’t need, set aside items you still need to access and box up what you can store away temporally. This will keep your items organized, clean, and accessible while work is underway.
  3. Protect: There is no way to sugarcoat it—construction is messy. Dust can spread into other areas of your house during your remodel. Be proactive. Cover floors and seal off other areas of your house to keep the dust from spreading. Talk to your contractor to see what protections they take and what additional precautions they recommend.
  4. Prep: Communicate your plan with all members of the household to make sure everyone is on the same page. Making sure everyone is prepared and knows what to expect can help ease stress before your project even begins.
