Beginning a home renovation project is always easiest if you have a good sense of what you want your home to look like. From the moment you decide to renovate or even if you think you might want to renovate sometime soon, it would be a good idea to start taking notes on the kinds of home features you like and don’t like. 

Try This Today: Sign up on Houzz and make your remodeling board. Feel free to share it with your partner/friends or keep it a secret.

Pay attention when you visit your friends’ places or see cool houses on TV or in movies, and maybe even browse some designer and contractor websites to check out their work samples. If you’re at someone else’s house and don’t have your computer handy, try to get in the habit of writing down the features you like and where you saw them in a notebook or on your phone. Or even better, if your friends or neighbors don’t mind, try snapping some pictures (or saving pictures if you’re browsing the web at home). Online, you can use platforms like Pinterest or Houzz or just create your own Facebook album to create a kind of idea scrapbook. This will be tremendously helpful when you’re trying to express your vision to your contractor.
