Have you lived with your dated kitchen or bath for decades and just can't stand it anymore? If you know you want a change, but don't quite know where to start, I can point you in the right direction with a few ideas. On the other hand, if you don’t have the time or energy (or know-how), my Design/Renovate service may be just what you need. I can design and renovate the whole job while you just sit back and relax!
DIY Designer-On-Call Service
What if you get your own contractors and select a few materials yourself, but still need a design coach along the way? I can help with paint colors, selecting finishes (flooring and backsplash, lighting, plumbing, countertops), etc., as well as answer questions that come up during the construction phase. For this service, I charge an hourly fee with blocks of hours available.
New Construction Consulting
Either you have a builder or you're self contracting, but there are hundreds (THOUSANDS!) of decisions to make when you build a home. For example, "How much light do we really need in the kitchen? Where does the tile stop at the edge of the shower? How do I choose a brick color when they all look the same?!?" The process can be quite overwhelming for a homeowner! For a flat fee, I can help you every step of the way, and it's much more affordable than you might think!
You don't always need an architect or draftsman to draw your plans, because I'm proficient in CAD as well. We can design your new layout together from the beginning.
Are you selling your house? The way you present your house to potential buyers is much different than the way you live in your home! Call me before you put your house on the market, and I'll show you inexpensive ways to make your home appealing to the most buyers!
Whether the project is remodeling, new construction, or simple updating, everyone wants pretty windows! For those with privacy in mind, I carry a line of wood, bamboo, and solar shades. If a softer look is preferred, my workroom is on hand for all your custom drapery needs.
