Organizing Your Remodel: Make it a Dream, Not a Nightmare

Are you ready to create your dream home? Invest the time and resources now, before the work begins, to ensure the process is fun and rewarding. Take some the burden off your shoulders and consider hiring a professional organizer who specializes in remodel.
Several of the many benefits to getting organized before the carpenters, plumbers, etc. arrive:

  • Reduce overwhelm and stress 
  • Stay on budget and on time
  • Empower your creativity
  • Save money by fewer delays and do-overs
  • Save your sanity and your relationships
  • Make your dream a reality

We’ve all heard the stories from family and friends – the delays, the unexpected problems that crop up, and cost increases. While any remodeling job is stressful, requiring hundreds if not thousands of decisions, it doesn’t have to be the nightmare we’ve all heard of or even been through before!

Working with a Professional Organizer can make all the difference in how your remodel is experienced. Your organizer will set up systems for handling deliveries, receiving and returning samples, tracking change orders and more. He or she can coordinate the timing and overlap of trades people to ensure things get done in the efficiently and in the right order, saving both time and money. They can help you figure out which household items need to be packed away, which need to be available for everyday use, and how to manage in a home that is under construction.

Professional Organizers bring invaluable knowledge of storage options and ideas for getting the most out of your new spaces. In addition, they can point you to many other helpful resources including apps for project and time management, places and services to off-load unwanted items and disposal of recyclables and toxics.

The biggest difference between remodeling with an organizer and without is the reduction in stress. Reducing the stress of remodeling equates to more creativity, more fun and ultimately a better chance of ending up with the house of your dreams. With proper planning and systems in place, much of the stress is avoided and your remodel becomes an extremely rewarding and fun experience. There are people and organizing tools available to make an enormous and positive impact on turning your dream home into reality.
