Are you tackling a home renovation? Have the last few months at home got you thinking about small DIY home projects? Or big home remodel projects? (Raises hand!)
In a crazy twist and unforeseen turn of 2020, we decided to sell our house and purchase a fixer-upper. We aren’t going too far, but we are moving closer to family — a priority that has been made clear during this pandemic. I did a “before” tour of the new house on Instagram. If you want to check out what we’re dealing with in this remodel, click here to watch the house walk-thru.
As I began to tackle my own home remodel, I realized I needed a plan. And not only that, I needed a place to track the plan — all the information, decisions, inspiration, and more. I created two digital products, two printables, that are a HUGE help with home projects!
First up is the Home Design Guidebook! When we first met with our contractor, he said something that stuck with me. He said “the more decisions you make up front, the quicker it will go. The better your plan is for your home, the least expensive it will be in the long run.” Yes! Planning saves you time and money!
The Home Design Guidebook is where I catalog all our design decisions, specifications, and measurements. It’s a one-stop guide! It’s so nice to know the exact paint color and the exact dimensions of certain spaces when you’re making a decision on-site, meeting with a contractor, or picking out a piece of furniture. This guidebook is also chock-full of my best interior design advice so be sure to grab it from our Printable Shop here! I did a full walk-thru of the guidebook on Instagram if you want to see more!
I printed the digital guidebook using our home printer and added it to a cute binder. Now I take the binder with me to every design meeting or check-in with my contractors! Which is a perfect segway into the next great printable for home projects: the Painting Guide!
The Painting Guide is a FREE download. Use it to track the paint colors you’re using in your home or as a contractor’s instruction sheet. It’s the perfect guide for communicating your painting wants and needs to your home renovation team.
With spots to indicate where to paint, what type, and sheen of paint, as well as the various paint brands, your painters will be set with the right information! The prompts guide you through everything you need to consider and the sheet provides ample space to communicate those needs to your painters.
I love any system that helps remove barriers to success. The Home Design Guidebook and the FREE Painting Guide are the perfect tools to help with your home projects! Save time, save money, and most importantly save your sanity. Grab these digital resources and more in the Whitney English Printable Shop!
