Making plans for your home in 2022? Atomic Ranch’s book Remodeled Marvels can help!
Wherever you are in your MCM home journey—whether you are house hunting, renovating your entire home or just one room or you’re looking to freshen up your exterior—Atomic Ranch’s Remodeled Marvels collects years of talking to MCM home owners and designers to share the accumulated renovation budgeting wisdom with you. Perhaps the scariest part when you set out on renovating is—you guessed it—budget. In Remodeled Marvels, author Jickie Torres provides helpful guidance as you tackle your renovation budgeting process.
Renovation Budgeting Wisdom from Remodeled Marvels
Be realistic. Budget in extra for unforeseen costs (because there are always unforeseen costs)! Remember to allocate some budget to hiring professionals.
Even if you’re an avid DIYer, there will likely be some things that are worth hiring professionals for. Estimate your costs based on local prices. Part of being realistic, Jickie Torres writes, is not budgeting for something that looks great like a freestanding bath tub if you honestly won’t use it on a regular basis. Sift out the would-be-nice items from the essentials. (Maybe as a bath-taker a tub is essential. You know who you are!)
And, another good reminder, do your homework but budgeting can stand a little levity and open-handedness. A common theme among home owners and design professionals Atomic Ranch has talked to over the years is that renovations almost always cost more and take longer than anticipated.
