If there’s anyone who knows about home renovation, it’s the home renovation experts on HGTV.
So, what do those experts have to say about renovating your home in 2023?
A recent video from realtor.com outlined key advice for homeowners that are planning a home renovation in 2023—straight from some of HGTV top stars!—including:
- Get big items done, then worry about the small stuff. There’s a lot to get done when you’re renovating your home. And while working out the small details can be fun (for example, choosing paint and textile colors or cabinet finishes), it’s important to tackle the big parts of the project—like choosing a contractor and settling on a layout for your new room.
- Working with a budget? Don’t underestimate the power of paint. You don’t need a huge budget to breathe new life into your space. A can of paint can go a long way! For example, you can paint an accent wall in your living room, paint countertops in your kitchen, or paint tile in your bathroom to make the spaces feel new and fresh.
- Know it’s going to be a rollercoaster ride. It doesn’t matter how much you prepare or how amazing your contractor is, when you renovate your home, issues are going to come up. But those issues are no reason to panic! Just expect that not everything is going to go smoothly—and if and when you hit a bump in the ride, just work with your contractor to get things back on track.
