Getting Started

It starts with a desire for change.  The process and the ability to carry it out  can be an overwhelming and daunting task. Choices are overwhelming, and everyone you know has an opinion.......all different.

Yet, knowing what styles suit you, your home and budget is critical. Resale for your neighborhood, not overspending the value, and avoiding trends that can hurt you later are key. Consulting a professional helps build the "bridge", and why we offer Ala Carte services.

What Clients Love

Having me arrive at their home for each meeting and bring samples for them to review , I have been told repeatedly is one of the things they liked best working with me. I spare them hours of scouring home centers and the internet waiting and worrying if it will all come together as they hope. I take evening and weekend hours that suit their schedules, and will join them to make their selections to help keep their priorities in check.

 

Knowing all their costs upfront, and knowing they are only paying for work at their home, not the costs of maintaining a showroom or all the other costs associated with the overhead that is part of larger firms. That is solid value that shows in the numbers, over and over.
