The Remodeling Emotional Roller Coaster
First time remodeling? If you are feeling a little nervous or intimidated, you’re not alone. When starting your renovation, it is always good to take a step back and look at the big picture so you don’t get lost in the feelings, thoughts and emotions that are most commonly referred to as “the remodeling emotional roller coaster”. Much like any change to your daily routine, the process of remodeling requires patience, flexibility and continuous reminders that change is good. The ups and downs a homeowner may experience as they navigate a remodel are typical. Some phases of remodeling are very exciting and change can be noticed quickly, yet other phases may seem daunting due to the fact that much of the work being performed is not necessarily anything new to the eye, yet is necessary for the completion of the project.
A remodel not only increases the value of your home, it brings joy and new life into a space that now has your very own special touch and feel for years to come. Preparing both yourself and your family by setting expectations and taking a step back to envision the change occurring throughout the entirety of your project will help to ensure that you can stay ahead of “the remodeling emotional roller coaster”.
