There is no other time of year where managing a home renovation Vancouver is more difficult than during the holidays. Having a renovation project underway when the hustle and bustle of life is at its peak is difficult, stressful and challenging. While it is exciting to potentially have a brand new home just in time for the new year can be exciting, other times it can feel overwhelming and like you’re waiting impatiently for the end date.

Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can better navigate the process of a holiday home renovation.

Be Communicative with Your Contractor

If you have plans during the holidays, be upfront about it with your contractor and make sure they know on which days they shouldn’t be there. It’s best to discuss this with them. Don’t be shy about letting them know your holiday schedule as your contractor is there to please you and make sure your project is running according to your plans.

Be Realistic About Potential Interruptions

It’s normal for there to be disruptions when you’re tackling a holiday renovation. Speak to your contractor and be realistic about what can be done before the peak of the holiday season in December, and what can wait until it all blows over. This will save you time in the long run.

Be Open About What You Like & Don’t Like

Be honest about what you like and don’t like before your team goes into the finishing stages. Be communicative and don’t be shy about telling them if something’s not working or not fitting your initial vision. This way, our entire team at Archia can put our heads together to come up with a solution that works for you and surpasses your expectations.

Be Organized

The holiday season is chaotic enough as it is, with decorations and extra clutter around the house. Having a renovation underway simultaneously can exacerbate this. Together, we will designate an area of your home where we can store tools, stock and other supplies so they’re out of your way and not disrupting the flow of your day-to-day.

Be Flexible & Open to Change

During such a busy period, things may come up unexpectedly. Whether issues with shipping (especially not during a global pandemic) or insufficient stock on a particular product, it’s important to keep an open mind and be flexible to the changes that come our way. Why? Because you can trust us to come up with a suitable solution regardless of the complexity of the problem or the circumstances at hand.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us should you need a professional team or contractor for your home renovation Vancouver. We are always ready to help and look forward to making your project, our best project.
