More and more media platforms, eBooks, websites, vlogs, and blogs are being created and made instantly accessible on the internet every day. The good news is that it’s easier than ever to find information as you begin remodeling your home. The bad news is that it’s also harder to find pertinent and helpful information because of the sheer volume of sources available. So we’ve put together a guide of four go-to resources to guide you through ideating and planning your remodeling projects.
Instagram: Dreaming Big
The first step to any successful endeavor is crafting a vision, which means dreaming big by garnering inspiration from other successful projects similar to yours. It’s ok if your first phase of ideas is a little unrealistic. You can always adjust to match your budget and space constraints later, but for now, take a visual tour through all your favorite projects on Instagram and dream about what you want in your own home.
Houzz: Honing Your Personal Vision
Now that you’ve researched some starting ideas for your home remodeling project, it’s time to hone your vision. Fortunately, this is what websites like Houzz are specifically designed for. In Houzz, you’ll be able to view gorgeous home remodeling projects; create Ideabooks where you can save and share your favorite home designs; shop for your preferred home furnishings; read blogs and tips about trends written by industry professionals; a nd even find remodeling companies with solid reputations near you.
Blogs: Area-Specific Information
With a vision in place, the next stage is to think practically about how to begin to prep your budget and select your materials. This is where area-specific remodeling blogs can help immensely. These are excellent sources of information on specific project costs for remodeling a home in Dallas, TX, as well as for how to go about planning room-specific remodels, how to select the best materials for various installations, how to effectively work with your remodeling company, etc.
