I'm an HGTV junkie. Fixer Upper, Windy City Rehab, and Hidden Potential are some of my favorites.
I'm pretty sure it's ruined me for ever buying a house. Every house I see, the same thing happens. I walk in and immediately start renno-ing it in my head. If we knock down this wall. We can tear up this floor. We'll just change the kitchen layout & add a bathroom here. It doesn't even phase me that I have no clue how to do those things. I don't have a construction crew on stand-by (Shocking I know :D)
While I don't know how to redo an entire (or even a part of)house. HGTV does show you exactly how to transform your life from the eyesore that doesn't work for your needs into the amazing masterpiece that fits your needs and feels like your favorite pair of jeans.
Just like the home renovation shows, you start with what’s there. You've spent years creating the life you have. There's no reason to scrap all of it & start over from scratch.
Your life is the home at the beginning of the show. Maybe the bones are good, maybe you need new foundation. Maybe it's got some really cool features that have been covered by paint, drywall or vinyl flooring.
What are the things you love to do that you're good at? Identify the great relationships. The things you're already doing that make you happy. What do you do that makes you feel like you? What parts of you have you been ignoring or hiding?
They don’t tear the whole thing down. They get rid of what doesn’t work and build on what does. They design based on the family's wants and needs. They design to match the homeowners style. Even similar houses become dramatically different because of the colors, materials & layout that is chosen. The final product is something that looks totally new & they love.
What is it you really want? How do you want to spend your time? Where do you want to live? What are your deal breakers? What do you want to eliminate? What do you want more of?
There is one part of designing your dream life that is much harder to do in remodeling. When you're designing your dream life you can try things out. If you don't like them, get rid of it & try something else.
