10 Remodeling Mistakes Newbies Make

Changing Your Mind

Once the plans have been made up and work has begun, it's a little late to start second guessing yourself. Putting another electrical outlet in the kitchen for your new espresso machine may seem like a simple last minute add-on, but it might not be. If you have a creative bent or just can't envision the new layout until it starts taking shape, don't expect to make many changes without a hefty price tag attached. For a sane and in-budget remodel, do your recon and strategizing before the dust starts flying.
