Top 6 Must-Do’s Before Shopping for a Home Project
Let me take you through a scenario… you walk into the store. You did your due diligence before you came and wrote yourself a list of what you need. You’re feeling pretty proud of yourself because you actually showed up at the store ready to roll with that perfectly thought out list for your most current home project.
Then, a sales associate asks you if they can help you with anything. You say, “Yes, thank you, I have this list.” So, they take you around, show you where everything is and bid you good day.
You are now ready to make the decision, do I go with this shelving unit or this one? As you are making your decision you realize you have no idea if this will fit in that room or if it really fits the look you are going for. All of a sudden you start contemplating all the items on your list, is this even what I really want?
And, wait for it, wait for it… BOOM! Severe decision paralysis! You drop to both knees squeezing your paper/phone into your palm and cry out in the middle of the aisle,
Okay, so this may be a dramatic interpretation of a day out shopping, but I am certain you all can relate in some way. At least 9 times out of 10, I completely forget one of the things I have listed in this post and my trip ends up in shambles. I’ve either taken more time than I should have trying to remember what the space looks like and guessing on whether or not it will fit. Or I’m super cranky and end up frustrated or defeated because I cannot complete the task I set out to do. This handy-dandy checklist will help make sure you don’t run into the same issues, like I have, ever again.
Without further ado, here are the top 6 Must Do’s before shopping for a home project.
