Are you pretty darn handy with power tools but a little afraid to tackle a major renovation project at home? Do you have great design sense but need help figuring out why your living room’s layout just isn’t working? Have you looked at dozens of backsplash samples but still can’t decide on a winner?
Help is on the way (or it will be as soon as you call or text) via our Do It Yourself Service.
Our team is the first to realize that not everyone has the budget – or the need – for a firm like ours to manage every aspect of a design project (although we love to do that, too!). That’s why we’re happy to step in and solve a pesky problem or two that allows you to get back to work with your end goal in sight.
One of our clients, a young couple with young children, recently purchased a house with ample room for the family. The down side? It had absolutely no style and a bad layout. The husband and his brother – who are pretty darn handy with power tools – were ready to tackle the renovation but didn’t want to start tearing things up without knowing where they were going next.
Let’s give those two a round of applause! I can’t tell you how often some DIYers tear into projects without a plan and have to call in folks like us to clean up the results.
In the case of our smart young couple, we were brought in to help select finishes for the entire home and solve a space issue. The kitchen was compartmentalized, which means that mom couldn’t keep an eye on her young kids while she was cooking, putting away groceries or even making a pot of coffee. Ummmmm, no way was that going to work.
We were able to create a construction drawing for the brothers to execute that opened the kitchen up and didn’t break the bank. We also created inspiration boards (so much fun!) that showcased a manageable set of style details and product selections for the couple to choose from, from the finishes to the furniture. The boards allowed the couple, who have different tastes, to blend their styles and showcase the open, airy feeling the renovation created.
Take a look at the before and after photos. We think they did a great job, and our team was happy to point them in the right direction.
What can we do for you?
