Project scope is an essential part of renovation or interior design planning. It’s a big task, especially if your whole home needs renovating. An excellent place to start is with a review of the existing spaces and their conditions and finishes.
Do you have mismatched skirtings, curtains that are perishing, or scuffs on the walls? Making an honest assessment of your starting point is the key to success. From there, you can identify the need-to-dos, nice-to-haves, and non-negotiables (AKA must-haves!).
Free Project Scope Checklist
To get you started, I’ve prepared a free Project Scope Checklist document, available for instant download. It’s a big document and will likely take a few hours to get through. Clear your diary on a Sunday morning or spend a few evenings working through it. I find printing the checklist and popping it on a clipboard is the easiest way to complete it.
I’ve also prepared some templates to list out your Three N’s (need-to-dos, nice-to-haves, and non-negotiables). Have a go at populating these once the checklist is complete. I’ve included ten lines for each section, though it’s unlikely you will have ten of each.
