Remodeling a home can be overwhelming at times.  Contacting and communicating with remodeling contractors, getting bids or estimates, managing logisitics and times, coordinating with multiple people both in the home and out can all take their toll.  It's important to plan ahead and get everything in writing to know when something is not right or off contract.  It's always good to talk with an interior design professional before starting a home remodel to ensure all goals or needs are met.
