Full Home Remodeling: Where to Start

Are you looking for a complete home remodel but don’t know where to start? Don’t worry! Full home remodels can be daunting and overwhelming, but with the right preparation, it can end with amazing results. At Together Design Build, we believe it’s all about taking one step at a time, and making sure you plan ahead to understand the scope of the project, the costs involved, and the timeline. Here, we’ve compiled a list of steps to take to ensure you’re set up for success.

Setting Your Budget

Setting a budget for a full home remodeling project is important for several reasons. First, it allows you to more accurately assess the scope of the project and ensure that the remodel fits within your financial constraints. A budget also helps you make an informed decision when hiring home remodel contractors so that you can better choose the right one for your project. Finally, a budget gives you a reference point as you select materials, fixtures, and other components of the remodel so that you don’t end up spending more than what’s necessary. Setting a budget upfront will help ensure you get the most out of your home remodeling project.

Choosing Remodeling Contractors

Choosing the right contractor is one of the most important decisions you can make for your full home remodel. A reputable contractor will not only be able to help you bring your vision to life, but also ensure that the project is completed on time and within budget. Moreover, a trustworthy contractor will be able to provide you with detailed information about everything from materials and fixtures to timelines and costs. As such, researching and evaluating all of your options before making a decision can help you avoid traumatic home renovation experiences and ensure that your dream home becomes a reality.

Researching Remodeling Ideas

Once your team is in place, you can start researching different design ideas to fit your aesthetic. It’s important to consider all of your options and make sure you stay true to your vision. Take your time and look at a wide variety of design elements to create the perfect home for you and your family.

You can take a look through home decor magazines and remodeling projects on some websites or 3D designs, and save any images you love. Collect photos of ideas for furniture, flooring, tile, paint colors, and wall covering, and create your own digital design board with inspiration that stands out to you. Don’t forget to think about lighting fixtures and accents as well.

Try visiting home remodeling retailers or showrooms to get further ideas for design, and touch and feel the materials for yourself. When you get to the store, pay attention to the color, texture, and scale of the products. Once you get an idea of what type of look you’d like to create in your home, bring your ideas to a professional and they can help create a sustainable, livable, and beautiful design that works for you. If possible, visit friends or family members who have recently completed a full home remodel. Look at their designs, feel the materials, and ask them what they would do differently the next time around. Visiting completed projects with an eye for the little details will give you great insight and help you create a plan for your home. Researching design ideas is an important step when it comes to a full home remodel. Collect images and visit stores and family members to give you the information needed to create the home of your dreams.

Mapping Out The Layout

After you have your design inspiration, it’s time to map out the layout and see how everything fits together. Your contractor can help you decide what type of layout works best for the space. It is also important to map out the layout and plan for any obstacles or changes that need to be made to the design in order to make the most of the available space.

Lastly, a correctly-mapped layout can also help avoid costly mistakes later on during the construction phase.This is also the time to make sure all of the measurements are correct so there are no surprises later on in the process. 

Demo and Renovations

With the layout finalized, it’s time to move on to the demo and renovation phase. This is when the space begins to come together and all of your hard work pays off. Demo and Renovations are necessary after finalizing the layout in a Full Home Remodeling Project because the layout is essentially a plan of action for how the remodeling project will be completed. Demolition is needed to clear away the existing structure and make room for the proposed changes. Renovating per the finalized layout details ensures that the remodeling project is completed according to the agreed-upon expectations.


The last step in a full home remodel is accessorizing. At this point, all the walls have been painted and the furniture is in place.It is the art of finishing the space, creating a cohesive look, and bringing the room to life. Now it’s time to add the finishing touches- accent pieces, artwork, plants, and décor to really bring the space to life and complete the look you desire.

Accessorizing involves filling the space with items that reflect your style and personality, such as furniture, art, linens, and sculptures. It helps to complete the project by adding the little details that make the room feel unique and special. Although a full home remodel can be a lengthy process, the end result is worth it. Once it is finished, you can enjoy the dazzling new space that was created.
