If you’re expecting, congratulations! You’ve probably already started preparations like babyproofing your home and designing a nursery. Today, the home remodeling contractors at DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Central Texas have tips on how to manage renovation projects when there’s a newborn on the way.
Early planning is key to overseeing remodeling projects and keeping them stress-free. An early start gives you all the time you need to make sure you get all details right—all you’ll need to think about is the color palette after you find out your baby’s gender. But don’t take too long to plan; the point of your remodeling project is to have it ready before the baby comes.
Remodeling projects, from a small closet remodel to a whole-home renovation, tend to generate dust. This isn’t an ideal environment for expecting mothers (or anyone else, for that matter), so dust reduction is a must. Remodelers use dust walls and doors as well as exhaust fans to minimize dust that would otherwise be floating around. In addition to wearing a dust mask and eye protection, make sure your HVAC air filters are inspected and replaced when clogged.
Choose Low-VOC Materials
VOC, or volatile organic compounds, are indoor air pollutants that are emitted by certain materials such as paint and plastic. Fortunately, low- or no-VOC products are available and clearly labeled as such. When working with a remodeler or painting professional, make it a point to ask which type of paint they’re going to use.
