So, get the neighbors sorted out by telling them that there will be some noise and contractors in and out, get your pets sorted as well - best to put them in a kennel for a while, and let's start decorating.
Your favorite new age or classical music--Tim Janis, Enya, Secret Garden. Incense and/or candles. (Please don't burn the house down, fire trucks are really noisy!) Set aside a certain time every day, or as needed. No need to actively meditate, although you may find it unavoidable after a short time, and that's okay. One small detail that you may wish to incorporate is a copy of Desiderata©***, the Max Ehrmann poem popular in the '60s that says, in part, \"Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.\" If there was ever a time this little poem is needed it's now. Taking turns reading it may be a good way to start your session every time.
Decorating from scratch, that is a new home, is relatively easy and just by browsing on the internet you will get many ideas for decor, color schemes and price ranges. Or if you are redoing your home then of course it will take some more time to get the old out and discarded, to make way for the new. Kitchens are important in that you need your cabinets fitted with a wood that can be matched with wall tiles and flooring. Blend in the colors to create uniformity and space.
