Last week in our blog, we talked about how to set and stick to a remodeling budget. One of the tips was to consider phasing your remodel when you are considering large, multi-faceted projects such as a whole house remodel. Today, we are going to discuss four of the benefits of a phased remodel and situations where it is a good choice.
- A wholistic view of your home with a Master Plan. A master plan design will consider all of the phases of your remodel at once, rather then designing them individually. So for example, a Master Plan will include the designs for a kitchen, main level master suite, and bath that will be built over time in two phases. This is beneficial because the overall functionality of your entire home is considered and how each room works with one another, allowing for consistency with materials, architectural details, and efficient infrastructure.
- Break up the investment. If you don’t have the funds to do all of the aspects of the remodel at once, breaking the overall project into phases enables you to spread the investment over a longer period of time.
- You may be able to stay in the home during construction. When you are remodeling multiple sections of your home at the same time it can be difficult to stay in your home while the work is being done. When the work is done in phases, you will likely be able to move into a section of the home that isn’t being touched.
- Coordinate timing that fits best with your family’s needs or schedule. For example, if you have a baby on the way or your in-laws are moving in, you can determine when each phase should take place and in what order.
