Remodeling Advice & Planning

Plan your next home remodeling project, big or small, with our helpful advice and how-tos. A home remodel can completely transform your home visually, structurally, and functionally. Whether you're gutting a home or simply making a few updates, you'll want to know how to complete your job right. Remodeling projects can involve plenty of planning, choosing and measuring materials, working with professionals, and lots of hands-on tasks. Learn about tools and techniques, gain an understanding of a building's structure and formation, and see how to tackle certain tasks yourself. For the big jobs that require professionals, learn how to work with pros, such as contractors, electricians, plumbers, and installers. Good communication will help you get the results you want. And every home remodeling project involves a budget. Discover our best ways to save money and spend wisely. Plus, learn how to survive the actual remodel and learn tactics for adapting your routine at home while your space is in progress. While remodeling is a lot of work, improving your home is a worthwhile investment of your time and money, and the results are worth it, whether you're gutting a kitchen or bath, installing new mechanical systems, updating trimwork, completing an addition, or reworking your home's layout.
