You’ve made it! This is the last step in our 7 Steps to Get Remodel Ready series, and step 7 is a fun part: shopping for a remodel! Here are some of our expert tips on how to go about it. Let’s get shopping!

Shop by Priority

Remember the room elements list you created in step 5? Shop for those high priority elements first—that way, if something goes wrong and you have to edit your elements list or even your room vision, you can do so easily without having to return some of the smaller items you’ve already gotten while shopping for a remodel.

Shop Sales

Are there any holidays coming up? Many stores will hold sales or give discounts for the holiday. If you can, wait until the holiday comes up and try to get a discount on the items you know you want. You can keep a handy list of website links and check them regularly for sales. For local stores, either call or visit in person and ask if the store will be having any sales coming up. You can also check to see if they have social media accounts, and follow along with any sales there. This is one way to make the best bargains while shopping for a remodel.
