Whole house remodel: what materials to select first?

18 years ago


Thanks to everyone for all the great tips posted to this site. We are starting a whole house remodel (1963 ranch, never been updated) and we want to understand which materials we should focus on selecting first (and then in what order after that). We will be working with an architect but we would like to start the process armed with a bit of knowledge.

Does one start at the floors and work up? All flooring (likely hardwood, slate, and carpet), a complete kitchen, 2.5 baths, dining room, family room, living room, three bedrooms and a laundry room will all be affected by our decisions.

Because it's a whole house remodel I'm not sure kitchen and bathroom cabinets and countertops should lead the way. We welcome your experiences and advice today and in the coming months.
