Not too long ago, we were able to help out with renovations at the Woodbridge Station Apartment Complex in Woodbridge, VA. The reinvention happening there inspired today’s blog post. After all, renovating is a lot easier said than done. It takes a lot to complete the process, so we thought this post might be able to help some of you. Hopefully these basic renovation tips can assist you during your home renovation.

1. Take notice of the neighborhood.

When choosing items for your renovation, choose a quality that is in accordance with your neighbors. This goes for everything from siding to cabinetry. If these items are of a lesser quality than your neighbors, then your property might lose value. However, much higher quality materials won’t guarantee a higher value.

2. Choose classic over trendy.

Although going along with the latest trend might make your home seem more modern, all trends eventually go out of style. When it does, your home’s look will be outdated. Choose a classic style that will stand the test of time. In the long run, it will save you money.

3. Work with what you have.

It’s much easier to work on existing spaces like basements or attics than to start from scratch. Making these rooms into functional, liveable rooms is much faster and cheaper than putting an addition on your home.

Although these are only a few tips, we hope they help with future projects! Also, don’t forget to rent a dumpster from Roll Off Dumpster Direct during renovation.
