The time has come to remodel, redesign and or redecorate your entire home. There’s a number of reasons why you may have arrived at this conclusion. It could be that you have finally found your location but the property isn’t quite ready to be called a dream home. Maybe you’re getting ready to sell your home and the low price you have been quoted shocked you. It might also be that you have the money, have the time and you thought ‘why not?’. And yet, there are a number of reasons why redecorating is going to be an immense challenge even before you begin. Firstly, you’re going to have to get used to the fact that your home might be unlivable or unusable for a few weeks or even months. Moving all your things around isn’t going to help speed up the task either, so literally moving them out of your home is required. On top of this, you have the task of getting your redecoration plan in order.
1. Get up and go
There’s no real way around this, you have to pack up your things and move them. Think about the massive challenge ahead of you. Tearing down walls, repainting all the walls, pulling up the floor and putting a new one in, creating livable space when before there was none. No way can you do all of this while knocking into your sofa and coffee table. So first things first, look for an adequate self storage service. These units will hold all of your personal items such as furniture, fittings, fixtures, clothes, shoes, appliances and more. They will offer you state of the art facilities and full controls of the temperature and general atmosphere in your unit. Air quality is very important in such units so items like paintings and other delicate art possessions are not harmed.
2. Protect the area
If you’re not working on your floor just yet, you don’t want drips of paint splashing on it. Maybe you love your floor and that’s not one of the areas that you’re going to be redoing. In this can, buy an industrial tarp that not only protects your floor from paint drops but from scratches and blunt force impacts. While you’re repainting the floor and changing the ceiling light, a hammer might drop on the floor from your ladder. A layer of foam underneath the tarp will provide a soft cushion for any falling objects. This simple combination protects any area from damage while you redecorate your home. It takes one less thing off your mind.
The air you breathe
It’s a good idea to maintain good composure while you’re redecorating. It’s going to be long hours and not everything is going to go your way. Your mood will stay more positive when you’re not breathing in the paint fumes and tiny specs of sawdust. Buy a few fans to circulate the air around the home and give you fresh air to breathe without having to wear a protective mask.
It’s time to evolve your home into your dream home. Doing everything yourself gives you more control but also poses a larger challenge, so plan ahead and use every service you can.
