5 Benefits Of Renovating Before You Move In

Living & Lifestyle

(Guest Writer: Amanda Wallace)

Have you just bought a new home that needs a couple of updates, a fresh coat of paint? Or, maybe the entire house needs a total redo? If you have found yourself in this situation, you are probably wondering whether it is better to deal with renovation now or after you move in.

Those who can afford to wait should be aware that there are many benefits of renovating a home before moving into it. Knowing about them might even make the person postpone their move until the end of the renovation project.

Are you interested in learning about these benefits? If the answer is yes, make sure to keep reading. Read the following carefully, and you will also pick up a few useful home renovation tips along the way.

Key Factors To Consider Before Renovating

Before we proceed to the reasons why you would want to renovate your home before moving in, let’s talk a bit more about the renovation process itself. There are some things you will need to consider before starting any project.

This brings us to the last thing to consider - the right time to start a home renovation. Are you going to do it before or after moving in? This might seem like a tough choice, but the following article can help you decide which one of these two options you should choose.

Benefits Of Renovating Before Relocation

Even though there are many benefits of renovating before moving in, we will focus only on the biggest ones.

1. Easier To Move Around During Renovation

Have you ever went through a home renovation while still living there? If you have, then you already know how hard it is to move around when there is furniture everywhere, and that is not even the worst part.

You will need to find a place for all those bulky pieces and keep them out of your way. No wonder one of the significant benefits of renovating before moving in is that your new home will be empty. There will be no big furniture pieces or breakables. Thus, it will be much easier to move around, and you will be able to bring the necessary tools and equipment without creating clutter.

2. Can Identify Major Problems On Time

Another great thing about remodelling an empty home is that even the smallest problem can be identified and fixed with no hassle. You might discover an unexpected issue behind old wallpapers and have to get rid of mould and black dots. There might be water damage from the leak in the roof, or even worse, foundation damage and cracks. These problems are severe and need to be fixed as soon as they are discovered. Noticing them is much easier and faster when the entire home is empty.

3. Zero Risk Of Damaging Your Belongings

Mistakes and accidents happen all the time, especially during remodelling projects. As a result, your belongings can get damaged beyond repair. This is something you will want to avoid at all costs.

Let’s say you are considering repainting your walls in one of these eye-catching colour ideas. Just a single drop of this paint can completely ruin a furniture piece. To prevent this from happening, you can protect all of your possessions and spend unnecessary amounts of time and energy on it, or you can simply move in after renovation to avoid the hassle.

4. No Need To Pack And Unpack Twice

Moving from one place to another isn’t the simplest thing to do. One of the most tiring processes is, without any doubt, packing. You can’t just throw your items in boxes, seal them, and hope for the best! There are different packing rules every individual should follow in order to have a safe move. But, how is this connected to remodelling? Well, it is quite simple.

A great benefit of renovating before moving in is that you won’t have to pack your boxes twice. You won’t have to move, unpack and then pack again to protect your belongings during the renovation.

Waiting for renovation to end is also an eco-friendly way to upgrade your home because fewer packing materials are used.

5. Moving Into A Home That Suits You

If you follow the do’s and don’ts of interior design carefully, you will get the chance to move into a home that meets all your needs. You won’t get frustrated because there isn’t enough storage space or because the kitchen is not as functional as you want it to be.

Thus, if you choose to renovate before moving in, you will move into a home that looks just the way you like it. And, there is nothing better than that.

So, what are you going to do? Are you going to renovate your home before or after the move? Keep in mind there are no “right” or “wrong” choices. There are just choices that work better or worse for you.

More importantly, no one can tell you when you should begin your renovation project. You are the one who needs to weigh the pros and cons of both options and opt for the one that suits you better.
