DIY Home Renovation

Premier Source wants to help you turn your dreams into a reality, especially when it comes to your home. However, it's important to still stay on budget, whether you're planning a total room renovation or sprucing up the space with some arts and crafts projects. Looking to do some home improvements on the weekends? Here are some tips!

Start Small

Don't try to tackle an entire home renovation from the start. Make sure the projects are something you can work into a timeline and aren't too much to take on at once. Changing a few simple things in a room can transform the overall look and feel of the space. Swap out your dated cabinet hardware with more modern handles or install a new light fixture to brighten up the room.

Set a Budget

It's important to know going into your DIY project how much you expect to spend. Make sure you include everything you can in your budget, including materials, tool rentals, contractor fees—if you choose to use one—and truck rentals. Having a prepared budget will help you stay on track during the home renovation process.

Decide Logistics

Once you've figured out what rooms in your home you'd like to renovate or redecorate, take a walk through and determine how often the rooms are used in your family. If you're ripping up your kitchen floor down to the studs, how does this affect your current living situation? Or if you're blocking off a room to sand after putting up dry wall, how long can you go without using that space? Don't jump in until you've got a game plan.

Premier Source offers home equity loans and lines of credit to our members looking to renovate their homes or take part in some weekend warrior projects. The loans and lines of credit are beneficial because they act as revolving lines of credit and you can withdraw the money as you need it for each project.
