Before the day of your renovation, whether it’s a bathroom or a kitchen remodeling job, arrives, it’s important to decide whether you want to stay at home or temporarily move out while the project is ongoing. Some homeowners prefer to get out of the way of their contractors and stay at a hotel during the construction while others try to find ways to live “around” the work. The decision depends mainly on a few basic factors about your project.
The Type of Renovation
Gut renovations could easily take over the majority of your home so you might find it extremely difficult, if not outright impossible, to perform your daily tasks. On the other hand, one-room renovations, exterior remodeling or even new additions to your home typically don’t make significant disruptions to the day-to-day comings and goings to warrant temporarily moving out.
Depending on how long your project will take, staying at a hotel for the entirety of its duration can rack up costs pretty quickly. Budget constraints can easily answer whatever questions you have about whether you should stay or go, however. If you’re strapped for options with no working budget for a few days’ worth of accommodation, you can always stay with close friends or family as a guest.
Handling Stress Levels
Some home improvement projects are just more intrinsically stressful than others. For example, during a deck addition, your deck builder will usually keep to themselves and out of the way of your family’s daily activities. For homes with only one bathroom or kitchen, remodeling these rooms will definitely cause some stress, and this must be taken into account before you make a decision.
