Prior to starting any home renovation, note that any home renovation contractor may give you’re a rough time estimate of when the project will be finished, however, unforeseeable obstacles can pop up along the way. If you are planning to renovate your home before an event or holiday, make sure to look at your end days and work your way backward, maybe leaving a couple extra days or weeks for unexpected time delays. Be sure to mark it down on your calendar, consult with your home renovator contractor, in case of delays on the way to avoid disappointment.



Thinking of starting a home renovation means you might need to pack up personal items, clothes, furniture, photo on walls, and unscrew lightings. This is because you probably do not want your items getting damaged in the process or missing when contractors are coming in and out of your home frequently. Best to declutter, pack up or move any items into an attic or basement from the renovation space. For a full home remodel, consider renting a locker space or pod to keep all your belongings secure and clean during the process.



Consider your day-to-day routine. Where you start your day to where it ends, how often you use the space, and how important it is your home may need to be quiet or used. Such as a study space, bathroom, bedroom, versus basement. If you need a quiet space to work away from all the renovations noise, or if you only have one bedroom or bathroom being renovated and need a short-term rental, book with us here at Avalon Suites Yorkville. We have suites perfect for one to five people with a fully equipped kitchen, laundry space, bed, and desk space for work.



Be aware of any water or electricity outages in your home when your space is being renovated. This has a major impact on your work from home environment, and your daily-to-daily life, from pluming to cooking or even just lighting to use your devices. Plan and book a suite with Avalon Suites Yorkville, so you can avoid having to buy bottles of water bottles for drinking and cooking, and battery packs just to barely be able to use your phone. Best to plan and be prepared than stressed last minute.

If you recently experienced a basement flood, there's a high possibility you will not have access to electricity for a while and you can learn more in our blog Where to Stay if My Basement is Flooded in Toronto.



You may not think of weather as a complication or something to know or keep in mind when you are doing a home renovation, however, you are planning on an outdoor or exterior renovation, checking the weather should be on your list. Consider that spring and summer times are mostly sunny and warm, you can expect air conditioning outages, pouring rain, or unexpected natural disasters that will put a dent in your timeline. Especially with outdoor work-life roofs, patios, and front years. Schedule these days into your calendar too.



Mentioned before, the time estimate that you receive may not always be exact and go according to plan due to obstructions, insufficient power, delays due to weather, or material delivery issues. You also must keep in mind when you visit the site that your home or space being renovated is going to look very messy, dusty, and dirty. Especially if you have not been staying at home for the full renovation. If you do not have some cleaning supplies on hand at home already, it is recommended that you grab some Windex, paper towels, brooms, wet wipes, Clorox, or any appropriate cleaning supplies for that area to clean before you fill with decor, furniture, clothes, and other amenities.
