Living through renovations isn’t always easy. Any home renovation can take a long time – and it’s often recommended that you live somewhere else during the process. But if that’s not possible, there are a few techniques you can use to make it easier to live in your house during home renovations.
Remember why you’re doing the renovations
Your home may look like a disaster area while you’re living through renovations – but don’t panic. Think back to why you began the renovations in the first place, such as to repair a damaged room, update the look of a kitchen, and so on. Look at the photos and inspiration you used to create your renovation plan – and remember that the result will look fantastic!
Set up an alternative kitchen or bathroom
If you’re having your kitchen renovated, for example, you can move your microwave and other small kitchen appliances into the dining room and buy a hot plate to cook food. You may even be able to set up a temporary utility sink in your home or outside to do the dishes. This helps you save on takeout during renovations.
You can also adjust to the renovation of bathrooms and living spaces. If you have a home with multiple bathrooms and your master bath is being renovated, for example, you can use your half bathroom for your daily routine. If your bathroom is only a half bathroom, you can plan to shower at a friend’s or relative’s home.
The point is – be creative – and think about how you can maintain your lifestyle!
Spend time outdoors or away from home when possible
Your home will be a worksite during the day, with power tools, lots of workers, and plenty of loud noises and banging. Try to spend time outdoors and away from your home as much as possible during renovations to avoid these annoyances.
Add an air purifier or filter
At Dash Builders, we always work as clean as possible, with frequent cleaning of our jobsite as we renovate your home. But, using an air filter and purifier can catch stray dust, sawdust, allergens, and other particles, and provide you with cleaner air. So, even consider continuing use of an air purifier or filter even after the renovation is complete.
