Home Remodeling

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. Regardless if you are just doing a bathroom remodel or kitchen remodel, it's good to know all of the ins-and-outs before starting so that no surprises come up.

Basement Remodeling

Basements don't have to be a dark and dingy place of despair. Why not construct the ultimate entertainment room, complete with a bar and home theater? And want to hear the best part? A finished basement will increase your home's value.

There are so many ways you can transform any basement into a liveable space; get started by reviewing the Angie's List Guide to Basement Remodeling.
