Organize a Comprehensive and Low Cost Reform in Barcelona (1st part)

1) Be clear about our needs for integral or partial reform

The first thing we must do when facing the integral or partial reform of our house is to determine what our needs are going to be.

Here it is very important to mentalize that who lives in the house is us and not ours, friends, acquaintances, although with all their good intentions they try to advise us under the criteria of their own personal tastes and do not have to coincide with ours. And that eventually ends up hurting more than helping.
