Home improvement additions provide a wonderful way to transform your current house into something more modern, attractive, and efficient, but the process can be stressful. The length of time a home improvement takes can vary based on the size of the job and the degree of improvements being made, and some rooms require more time than others. Criner Remodeling understands that you still need to live in your home during the construction period, and with that understanding we are always courteous regarding your living space. Following are a few organizational steps you can take to prepare for home improvement additions in order to live more comfortably during the process.

For A Kitchen Remodel

Set up a small, dust-free zone in your kitchen during renovations to allow you to cook at home instead of having to live on takeout food. Equip this space with everything you might need, including a coffee pot, microwave, toaster, and crock-pot, all of which can temporarily take the place of your stove while still producing enjoyable, healthy meals. If you need counter space, consider purchasing a cheap card table, and try locating it in another area of the house if your kitchen is totally inaccessible. Use disposable plates and cups to avoid a lot of dirty dishes.

For A Bathroom Remodel

If you have more than one bathroom in your home, this is a moot point, but things can get complicated if you only have one. The best thing to do is find a family member or friend who lives nearby who will let you shower at their place. If the job requires a new toilet, however, you may want to consider staying at a hotel or at someone else’s house on the evening of its installation to allow the grout to dry.

Adding Space

If you are adding new space to your home, the best thing you can do is choose a season with mild weather so that, in the event that a new wall is being constructed and you have a large hole in one of your rooms, you do not get too hot or cold. You may also consider temporarily moving your bedroom to a different location away from the remodeling zone in order to prevent tracking dust into the bed and to keep away from open walls while you are sleeping. The professionals at Criner Remodeling will respect your space during the project and do everything in their power to make the process as comfortable as possible while working quickly to get your home back in order.
