Slow and Steady Wins the Race
Don’t be in a rush to complete your remodel within a set time frame. Unless you like living in a chaotic environment it makes sense to make changes piecemeal. Work on your kitchen for a set period of time. Wrap up that project. Tackle the bathroom at another time. By completing projects before moving forward you can have a functional home.

Make changes slowly to enjoy the remodel experience and to improve your home’s value in the process.
