When it comes time for a home installation project, no matter how big or small, we don’t blame you when you want the job done right the first time. Whether you plan on tackling the mission yourself or are bringing in a professional, consider these factors for any installation project in your home!
#1: Consider Your Budget
Comparing the costs of the tech you’re installing to the labor costs is a great place to start for your project. You should be asking the following questions straight out the gate to determine how far your budget should go:
- Do you have the tools to complete the task, or will you need to go find what you need?
- Are there any modifications necessary for your space?
- Is additional help required?
- Where is the home installation taking place?
- How much does your tech/fixture cost in addition to any labor?
Once you have the answers to these questions, you’ll have a steady foundation for your project going forward. Believe us, hammering out the rest of the details will be easier!
#2: Consider Your Space
Before taking charge of any installation project, be sure your intentions match the capabilities of your chosen space. How big or small is your space? What kind of fixtures, surfaces, or existing tech do you have to work with?
If you want your television mounted on a concrete or brick surface, additional expertise is needed to ensure your surface isn’t damaged on the job. For furniture assembly, you’ll have to take into consideration the dimensions of your space and the measurements of what you’re bringing in.
For any project, there are intricacies better navigated by a trained professional!
#3: Consider Your Timeline
Depending on how many installation projects you have lined up on your roster, time is likely of the essence to get them done! From a last-minute installation to a new television needing mounting, the amount of labor will vary. Any project should accommodate your own schedule, such as WiFi troubleshooting before the workweek begins!
Our recommendation: If the job is out of your skillset to get done in a short amount of time, hire a professional who is vetted and experienced. Even better if they offer same-day services!
#4: Consider Your Vision
Everybody has a vision for how their space should operate and the amenities they want, and you deserve to have that come to life! Whether you’re outfitting a home theater or moving your tech and fixtures from Point A to Point B, your home should be furnished and designed to your standards.
That being said, let your imagination run free with all the Pinterest inspiration you want while still being realistic about what you can achieve. Overall, the projects necessary to bring your space to life should be completed with longevity in mind. No matter if you or a professional take it on, make sure the job lasts!
