Where do you start when renovating?

Renew your kitchen first Homeowners often want to know in what order they should renovate a house. It's best to start with the kitchen because these remodels add significant value to your home. If there are signs of problems in the foundation, look for doors and windows that don't close properly or that there are cracks and gaps in the edges of the wall and floor. If you suspect that there is a problem with the foundation, a structural engineer can help you diagnose the problem and create a plan to address any repairs.

You should also check your electrical and plumbing systems before starting any renovation. Both plumbing and electrical systems must be up to date to be equipped to work with today's appliances and plumbing. If your house was built before the 1960s, it's a good idea to change the pipes and wires to make your home more reliable for years to come. I know it's obvious at first, but going back to basics is the best way to understand everything that needs to be done.

The first step to a complete home renovation is to focus on the reasons to do it in the first place. List what you hope to achieve, whether it's creating more space for a growing family or reusing the underused space of an empty nest. This will help you prioritize the many decisions involved in a project of this magnitude.
