Mike Holmes is a Canadian builder/contractor, businessman, investor, television host, and philanthropist. In this episode of The Marc and Mandy Show, Mike Holmes answers questions about renovating, reno budgets, renovation trends, and more.
Q: What question should viewers ask themselves before beginning a home renovation?
According to Holmes, homeowners should first and foremost determine how much money they’re willing to spend. The intent of this question is hardly to make homeowners nervous, but rather to be realistic about making your home reno dreams come true with the amount of funds that are available.
Q: How should homeowners handle current trends?
When it comes to color, trends can play an important role – but they shouldn’t make or break your renovation goals. As far as renovation trends, Holmes states priority should be given to functionality over trends always. He goes on to say that, while homeowners can and should be aware of industry trends, they should not become the deciding factor.
