Remodeling your home is something youíve likely considered for a long time and have carefully planned. However, if youíre not an expert carpenter designer it can be easy to make novice mistakes. Learning by your mistakes is fine, but when those mistakes are an eyesore or cost hundreds of dollars, youíre better off doing your homework in advance.

Whether youíre doing a remodel yourself to save money, or just because you have a do-it-yourself spirit and like new challenges, these tips will spare you many headaches and save you a lot of money along the way.

1. Inaccurate measurements

Unless youíre a carpenter or engineer, odds are you donít use measuring tools on a daily basis. To ensure that you get the most accurate measurements, draw plans for your remodeling project to ensure that everything will fit in the space that you have. This includes measuring for the spaces youíll be putting appliances, cabinets, and other items. If youíre installing drawers or doors, ensure that they will be able to open fully.

2. Using the cheapest materials

Sometimes you can find high-quality materials in the bargain bin. But most of the time itís there for a reason. Working with quality materials will not only usually give you the most aesthetically positive results, but will also likely outlast the cheaper alternatives.

3. Underestimating costs

If youíre planning a remodeling project always be prepared to spend a bit more than your original calculations. There are several unexpected expenses that could arise during the remodeling process, including damaging materials by mistake, buying the wrong materials, having to purchase specialized tools, or needing more than you initially thought.

4. Not taking appropriate safety measures

If youíre a novice remodeler, safety needs to be one of your top priorities. You may be unfamiliar with some of the tools youíre using and likely donít know some of the common safety hazards on the job. When it comes to electrical work, there are many projects that required a licensed electrician to perform. If youíre up on a ladder, be sure the legs are fully opened and secure. And if youíre on the roof, make sure youíre wearing non-slip boots and not carrying heavy items up and down by yourself.

5. Ignoring design and style

In todayís world of quickly fading trends and online inspiration blogs itís easy to want your home to be several things that it isnít. When planning your interiors, try to take into account the architectural style of the house. Similarly, if youíre remodeling one room think about how it will look against the backdrop of the rest of your home. Consistency is a too-often undervalued characteristic of interior design.


Those are five of the most common home remodeling mistakes to avoid if youíre planning a renovation for your home. However, there are many more. So if you take away anything from this article, let it be this: you have to look at your home every day, so be sure to take the time to do your research and plan properly so that your home comes out just the way you want it.
