Remodeling? Get advice from our experts

From a new screen door to a complete room addition and everything in between, we can design, finance, and install your next remodel project! It all begins with a dream. A spa-like bathroom! A magazine worthy kitchen! Room-sized closets! But, the dream may turn into a nightmare, unless you plan ahead. Before you remodel, follow these steps to get your home improvement project started right.

 

1. Visualize
Begin sketching out your ideas and imagining your remodeled home. If you are adding or expanding a room, think about how the space will be used and how the changes will affect traffic patterns. An oversized addition may overwhelm your house or crowd a small lot. Begin looking in magazines and start a collection of pictures of featuring fixtures, colors, room styles, cabinets, and the overall feel that you like.

2. Learn From Other People’s Experience
One of the best ways to get inspiration and to avoid pitfalls is to learn from the experiences of other homeowners and trusted professionals. Talk to your friends and family and ask about their experiences with home improvement projects. Talk to the professionals at Niehaus Home Center. Our team has the experience and expertise to guide you through every step of your remodel process.

3. Design For Your Future
Although you may want that big new addition, the project may not make sense if you plan to sell your house in a few years. If you over improve your home, you can price your house beyond the values in your neighborhood. Consider your family’s needs. What will your family look like in a few years? Are you planning to have a new baby soon? Or maybe you’re children are all grown up and may be moving out in the next few years. Will the improvements you make today fit your tomorrow?

4. Create An Accurate Budget
You’ve just gotta have that diamond encrusted chandelier...but be careful, it may be just enough to push your budget over the edge. Depending on the size and scope of your remodel project, there’s a chance your project may exceed your initial budget. Before you start, know how much you have to spend and make sure you have a cushion against cost overruns. Niehaus Home Center associates can help you create an accurate budget estimate for your project, PLUS we offer special financing if you need it.

5. Choose Your Team
Depending on the size and complexity of your project, you’ll need to find a material supplier, hire contractor(s), and oversee and manage the entire project. Or, for many projects, you can start by visiting Niehaus Home Center. We have surprisingly competitive prices on over 70,000 products, associates that can help you with every detail including kitchen and bath design, interior design, special financing, PLUS in many cases we can do the work, or recommend a trusted contractor that can complete the project for you. If you decide to search for a contractor on your own, you'll want to make sure they’re qualified and properly insured.
