Avoid costly renovating mistakes by taking time to plan and get educated. Have you ever bought a piece of furniture only to later feel that the comfort, size, or style was completely wrong? Hiring a designer can SAVE you (necessary plug!) This may be a costly mistake but one that will pass fairly quickly. Now, what if you knocked down a wall or had tile installed and the color was all wrong? That’s one you may have to live with longer… or permanently if you’ve opened up a space you now regret.
Ask yourself LOTS OF QUESTIONS. How do you want the space to function? How do you want to move throughout the space? What does the home lack for your lifestyle? What will you miss if you remove that closet or select a pedestal sink with no storage? Where’s your stuff going to hide?
Consider the entire home even if you are changing a smaller space.
Before you make a big change to your space find out if it’s good for the value of the house. Ask a really good local realtor that knows your hood.
In my own home I chose to take a large formal living room and turn it into a small study in order to gain closet space in the master bedroom. (This picture was take when I was first unpacking)
I absolutely love this space-the detail, richness, and size make it usable and very inviting. In addition, I now have ample storage for my things in the master.
Don’t make costly mistakes. Know what things cost and ask experts. I’d love to help with your renovation rescue. There are so many options out there that selecting can be overwhelming.
