What’s your renovation motivation? We had a few reasons when we started but it was easy to forget them when we were overwhelmed by all of the decisions, mess and money involved in the renovation process. Many times during our renovation projects we wondered if taking them on was a mistake. Fortunately, the overwhelm doesn’t usually affect both us at the same time. In those moments, we rely on each other for support and remind each other why we decided to start in the first place. But when surrounded by drywall dust, unfinished work and bills, it can be hard to remember why you started a renovation in the first place.
What’s your renovation motivation?
To help you with this, we’ve created a FREE, printable download for you! We’ve compiled a full-page checklist of reasons to renovate so you can be clear about your motivation. Take a few minutes to read through it together and check off all the reasons you’ve decided to renovate. Don’t worry, there’s a couple of spots to add your own unique reasons.
From both renovations, we’ve learned that knowing the motivation for a project was key to its success. Being on the same page and clear on the purpose of your renovation will help you focus on the work that needs to be done. It will also help keep you going when it feels like it’s never going to end – especially when you’re doing the work yourselves. As a bonus, we have also compiled a short checklist of reasons you’re choosing to complete some or all of the project yourselves.

We know you can do this! We also know that everyone needs a little help sometimes. Why not outline your support system before you start? Listing friends, family or companies you can rely on ahead of time reduces guesswork when you’re tired, frustrated or you come across a surprise. Feel free to print a few copies to post and give to your supporters. We also recommend taking a picture with your phone so you will always have a reminder of your renovation motivation with you.
