Evaluate Your Current Space

Start by taking a closer look at what you already have to work with. Your current space will largely dictate the types of renovations that do and don't make sense, so it's important to take any constraints into consideration before you dive too deep into the planning process.

Think of what you already have as a springboard to work from – the possibilities are nearly endless, no matter what the space looks like.

Create a Remodel Checklist

Next, make a list that includes all of the items you'd like to see as part of your remodel, breaking things down into specific details if possible. List out items such as faucets, backsplashes, sinks, appliances, countertops and cabinetry, and make a quick note next to each about where your current needs happen to be.

There are many remodeling checklist examples available online, so don't be afraid to take a look at what others are doing.

Gather Inspiration

Gathering design inspiration from photos, magazines and the Internet is a great way to ensure you aren't overlooking potential possibilities for your bathroom or kitchen remodel. Don't think of it as "copying" someone else's style; consider it part of the research and due diligence your home deserves.

You may also find inspiration from simply visiting the homes of family and friends, or exploring showrooms.  Pay attention to what you do and don't like in a particular kitchen or bathroom, and use this information to your advantage when it comes time to plan a remodel.

Determine Your Budget

At the end of the day, your budget will determine what you can and cannot afford to incorporate into a kitchen or bathroom remodel. Sitting down with an accountant or financial advisor is always wise, as this can help you gain a clearer sense of exactly how much you can afford to put toward your home renovations. Otherwise, you're basically going in blind, which is never a good idea.

Once you have a strong understanding of what your financial parameters look like, you'll be well-equipped to prioritize and plan out a realistic list of work to get done.
