Renovating your apartment is a difficult job in any part of the country, but much more so in New York city. This is a simple guide for an apartment owner on how to avoid 5 major mistakes most apartment owners make.
1. You have to begin much earlier than you expect to. Most owners believe their renovation will be completed in 3 months. While that is mostly true, they do not consider time spent on hiring professionals, coordinating between a team of consultants and vendors, building approvals, permitting etc.
2. Don’t go it alone. Hire a professional who knows how to do it- an architect and/or an interior designer who will oversee the entire project. It would be a good use of your time and money, while making this challenging job much easier for you.
