Have you ever had trouble figuring out which home improvement project to tackle? You can improve different parts of your home like your kitchen, bedroom and siding, but, more often than not, you’ll find yourself having enough budget for only one project. If you find that you’re having a difficult time choosing a project, these tips should help you sort out which ones to prioritize.
Figure Each Project’s Purpose
The first step in arranging your priority list is to find out what each home improvement project can bring to the table. Do you need to replace your kitchen counters so you can transition smoothly from the sink to the stove? Do you want to update your bedroom because it looks kind of dull? Put projects that serve more functional purposes before those that will only yield cosmetic improvements.
Sort Based on Budget
If you want to get the most value out of your home improvement projects, you have to prioritize the ones that fall within your budget. Always assume that your project will cost more than expected, so don’t go for those that are already far over your current estimate. If you have to choose between the roof and your windows, you may want to start with the latter (especially if the roof is still in relatively good shape). Otherwise, you’ll end up paying more than you expected in the form of credit interest.
Sort Based on Location
Another good approach to sorting your list is to prioritize based on location. This is because certain parts of your home improve both form and function. For example, you can get a wooden deck and then complete the deal with a new entry door leading to it down the road. This is also important in cases where problems in one part of the home (like the roof) can lead to problems in another (the walls and ceiling).
