New Homeowners: Wait Before You Renovate

April 13th, 2021 by tisner

Your new home charmed you as soon as you walked into the entryway, despite rooms with dark paneling, a pink tile bathroom, or a small galley kitchen. You knew you wanted to make some changes when you bought it, but is it worth the added stress, not to mention the stress on your new budget?  

  • The home-buying process and moving are no small feats and undertaking a renovation can take another toll.  Give yourself a break before starting something new. 
  • Getting used to living where you are could cause you to rethink your plans. For instance, you wanted a bay window to replace the two smaller windows in the dining area, but after feeling the hot afternoon sun shining in, you change your mind.  Little things like this are not noticeable from a few walkthroughs and virtual tours. 
  • Many fixups are inexpensive and can tide you over until you make your final decision on whether to renovate or not: painting, fixing up the floors, or purchasing new furniture are all ways you can satisfy that itch and make the new house feel like your own. 
  • Living in your home as it is for a while could show you that a major renovation is not needed at all! One room could simply need better lighting, or a closet you wanted to enlarge simply needs a few organizational pieces. 
  • Continue the savings habits you adopted while saving for your down payment and other costs associated with your home purchase, and you can pay for your redo in cash, one step at a time! 
  • Go ahead with your planned decorating! It is possible that you will find those renovations unnecessary once you have new furniture, draperies, and wall color. 
  • Some renos cannot wait and are best completed before moving in structural work, full kitchen or bathroom re-do, large room addition, or changes to the layout.   

Patience is a virtue, and in today’s instant world, it is hard to wait for something you have looked forward to for months. Holding back on the revamping of your new home will not only teach patience, but it could save money and headaches for you! Architectural Digest covers other aspects of home renovation to consider
