Ask any kitchen or bathroom remodel expert and they’ll tell you that a homeowner’s involvement affects the outcome of any construction project. Our experienced team at DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Southeast Florida knows that most homeowner-remodelers generally fall into three main categories. Understanding how you approach the remodeling process and, by extension, your contractors, can help you improve the quality of your remodel as well as your satisfaction with it.
By far the most laidback of all types of clients, the hands-off homeowner gives the contractor free rein on most aspects of the job. However, there are obvious drawbacks to being uninvolved with your own remodeling job. It’s common for this type of remodeler to miss project objectives.
On the opposite end of the spectrum lies the micromanager. From choosing specific paint products to the finalizing the finishes on kitchen cabinets, the micromanager likes to be involved. This approach usually gets good results but it can often rub contractors wrong.
The Level-Headed Manager
Striking a balance between the micromanager and the hands-off homeowner is the level-headed manager. This type of remodeler is detail-oriented but still listens to helpful advice from the professionals they work with.
The best way to take on a home remodeling job is to clearly define your level of involvement right from the get-go. Communicate with your contractor and set roles early on in the project so there’s no ambiguity where your work ends and theirs begins.
