Biggest “Don’ts” in Whole Home Remodeling


Looking forward to your remodeling project?

The founder of Creative Spaces, John Johnson, knows a thing or two about the remodeling process. With over 30 years in the remodeling business, he’s seen it all from smooth projects to rocky adventures. Here is some advice for homeowners on what not to do while your house is being renovated.

Don’t Hold onto the Past

Does your house need renovations or does it need to be knocked down entirely? Before you make any decisions, listen to the professionals who come to observe your current home. Keep your mind open to their suggestions.

Don’t Delay Big Decisions

You may be excited to throw a housewarming party after your project is complete, but rushing the project will only lead to unsatisfying results. It’s important to sit down with your contractor and discuss the entirety of the project before any work begins.

Don’t Live at Home

Many people refuse to follow this rule, as moving out adds to the cost of an already expensive process. However it’s in your best interest to find a place to relocate while your project is being completed. Save yourself and your family from the discomfort of loud noises and a stressful construction site.

Don’t Ignore Your Home’s Current Style

You may want a modern kitchen but does it flow with your gothic-inspired home? The best way to complete a renovation project is to complement the attributes of your home that you still enjoy.


At Creative Spaces, we strive to ensure that our clients are 100% satisfied with every project we complete. We listen to your needs and create a design that will give you the lifestyle you’ve been after! If you’re ready to start the design process, give us a call or visit our website today!
