Move over, beige. There’s a new neutral in town.
Style may be a matter of personal taste, but sometimes a professional opinion helps
Universal design enhances safety for people young and old.
I know you said you didn't want a realtor but I do know someone who is good. Her name is Pam Hunt and she is with William E. Wood.
Otherwise I would check out interior designers. They could make suggestions and outline some finer details that could help you stage your home.
In the meantime start packing away those personal momentos and pictures. Clear and clean the walls. Go with a neutral paint color throughout the house. Oyster by Behr is a classic. Start getting rid of clutter. If you haven't worn it in 3 years or used it in 5....pitch it. Depending on how long you have lived in your home the accumulation of "things" could be tremendous. Donate your unwanted and unused to a thrift store. It is tax deductible. Get appliances off the counters in the kitchen. Buyers want to imagine "their" things sitting there. Get rid of heavy drapes and go with sheers consistent throughout the house. Make rooms look larger by chucking some furniture. Sell it or put it in storage until you have moved. How is the floor? Carpet removed may reveal beautiful hardwoods that are in high demand right now. Pets? Get someone to come give you the "sniff" test. We grow acustomed to the smell of our house and might not recognize pet stinkies. Make everything shine by cleaning thoroughly, and let in the light. Bright rooms are inviting. Dark rooms are depressing. These things will give you a head start and clear your mind for some good ides. Good luck with your interior designer.
I have lost count of how many kitchens I have remodeled and I prefer Brushed Stainless Steel sinks. Polished will show scratched more and with the brushed finish if you wipe with the grain with a milld scrub pad and an old time product called Bar Keepers Friend the look good almost forever. If you have any concerns about scratches in the bottom you can use a grid when needed, most sink manufacturers make them for their sinks. You say you have stains in a solid surface siink and it is probably the older generation. The newer ones have a high stone content to the mix and are less prone to this but I still prefer stainless.

Our meeting with meeting and was very organized, we were able to make decisions about colors/materials for the living room, kitchen and two bathrooms: that was awesome!!! Her expertise, impeccable taste & personalized service is hard to find and she shares her resources with her clients.
Being very tired that day I forgot to ask some important questions during the meeting. I emailed those questions to her and within hours got a very helpful response. Thank you,
If we need any interior designer's assistance in the future, now we know where to go.
The color choices were ones that I would never have made on my own. I can't wait to see how they look on the wall!
I am looking forward to working with her on the next stage of our home revamp!
Going in I had a general idea of what I was going for but was trying to figure out where to start and was, for the most part, really unfocused. She started off by asking me questions about what I wanted with the space and what my style was. After which she took some time to do some measurements. After that we were able to , step by step, layout the my living room and I loved the concept same up with for it. She was a very good listener and very attuned to what style I was going for. She had no problem if I didn't really like a particular idea she was pitching and was happy to explore other avenues and concepts.
Before the meeting with
she gave me great notes on what we discussed, a sketch layout that was easy to follow and a general list of idea/products from vendors that might be selling what I want. It was so easy and so great!
I was very pleased with meeting with
I hired Rich the work was custom, or furniture which needed to be ordered and purchased, I had to pay a majority of the costs up front. These costs totaled over $35,000.
Initially, things began rather smoothly. My condo was repainted rather quickly by a very skilled craftsman. My kitchen wall was retiled. My floors were sanded and refinished. My new leather couches were delivered. It was at that point, that things started to fall apart.Other things like the custom desk and custom entertainment center were never delivered (I was told by Rich that they were damaged in transit or were the wrong color and were returned to be redone). The electrician never showed up for a significant amount of work because he was in a motorcycle accident. Custom pillows were just never delivered. It was around this same time that Rich started showing up less and less, and began to avoid my calls and not return my calls. When Rich DID finally get back to me, he did mention that he was very sick (apparently pancreatic cancer) and had to attend therapy.
At this point, Rich said that he's still like to work with me, and I agreed to be patient with him during his treatments. But as he supposedly continued treatments, work came to a complete standstill. During calls that I made directly to the companies who were providing some of the custom furniture, I was told that they didn't have any records of items being sent or even ordered for my address. It was at this point that I called Rich, and we both decided that it would probably be better to end this project, and he agreed to return the rest of the money back to me for the goods and services that were not delivered. The amount of money to be refunded to me came to $19,508.85
Rich agreed to refund this money to me, and has refunded $10,000 (two $5000 checks). That was over a year ago -
I continue to reach out, asking for an update as to when I can expect the rest of my money. However, considering it's been a year and a month since I last year from him, and my countless communications from him have been ignored, I'm losing home that I'll see my money again.
I may take him to court to get my money back, although I'd rather not. I just want my money back and would greatly prefer to avoid going the legal route.
Rich, if you're reading this, please reach out to me.
Anybody else - I'd avoid this designer at all costs... because I might cost you more than you realize.
