3 Tips For Living Through An Extensive Home Renovation

Doing an extensive renovation on a house can be stressful. That is especially the case if you also have to live in the house while it is being renovated. Having your home turned upside down can cause even the happiest of people so much stress and anxiety. Here are three tips to help you live through an extensive renovation in your home.

1. Plan carefully.

When it comes time to go through with the extensive home renovation, you should sit down as a family and plan everything out. Even though you may want to renovate every room of the house, it would make the most sense to start with the rooms that are used the least often and go from there. If you don't use the room often, you won't be as affected by it being inaccessible during the renovation.

Then, when you do need to renovate a room that is used regularly, like the kitchen, you need to have a plan in place for cooking meals during that time. Some families can get by with microwave cooking during that time - as long as the kitchen renovation doesn't take too long, that is. 

2. Make sure at least one bathroom is in working order at all times.

Another tip to live through an extensive renovation in your home is to always have a bathroom that is in working order. Whether you are doing the renovations yourself, or you have hired a contractor do it for you, make sure everyone in the house knows which bathroom they can use throughout the day.

If your home only has one bathroom, then the renovations in that room need to take priority over anything else being done that day. You can get by with not having a kitchen for a while, but you can't have your only bathroom inaccessible for longer than a day if you plan to stay in the home.

3. Be considerate of other people living in the house and neighbors nearby.

With extensive home renovations, you likely want to get everything done as soon as you possibly can. If you're doing them yourself, you may think that getting an early start each day and working until late at night is the way to go. However, you need to think about your family and neighbors. Being awakened by loud banging on walls at 6 a.m. is no fun for anyone. So, always make sure the time you start and stop working each day isn't likely to interfere with anyone's sleep schedule.
