When homeowners begin to think about remodeling their home for the first time, they often don’t know where to begin. They certainly know what they don’t like about their current kitchen, bathroom, or other rooms in the house. But, the idea of tearing up their living space for the unknown outcome of a remodel may be disconcerting. Plus, the fear of making a wrong decision on the remodeling design or material selections can be very intimidating.
Major remodeling projects, like kitchen or bathroom makeovers, are beyond the capabilities of most Do-It-Yourselfers. For example, only highly skilled, licensed craftsmen should perform intricate, dangerous electrical and plumbing work. Master carpenters should measure and build cabinetry with extreme precision. And, to ensure remodeling success, homeowners should approve detailed project drawings and select all key materials prior to construction. That’s where assistance from experienced design and selections professionals can be invaluable to homeowners, particularly first-time remodelers.
A contractor and interior designer should first listen to a homeowner’s top priorities and desired budget for a remodeling project. He or she can then translate the homeowner’s vision into an actual set of conceptual drawings. Those drawings will serve as the baseline for project quotation, future design changes, and material selections. The remodeling contractor should incorporate space planning and construction expertise into the plans to prevent the execution of bad ideas.

Selections Professionals Will Save You Time, Money, and Stress
When remodeling, homeowners often fret over their choices for custom cabinetry, countertops, backsplash, flooring, fixtures, appliances, paint colors, etc. They describe the number of choices and possible combinations as “overwhelming.” A common fear is making a mistake in terms of appearance, functionality, or quality once the materials are installed.
