Home Renovation – Materials

One of the biggest mistakes is buying cheap materials. Home renovations and improvements can be expensive so you may be tempted to save everywhere that you can. The problem is that the cheapest materials are not always the best ones. While you can get deals on high-end materials, you will more often than not get exactly what you pay for. This will affect the quality of work and should be avoided at all costs. We work with our clients through each step of the building and renovation so you know exactly what we are using, which are high-end products and offer you an extended 7-year warranty.

Renovation Lighting

Home Renovation – Lighting

Another big mistake is not taking in consideration the lighting of the space, especially the natural lighting. This can change the overall feel in the space and make it look unappealing. You are going to be paying a lot for this renovation so you need to make sure that you take advantage of the natural lighting in the space or add more if you need to. You should also be sure to add lighting fixtures that are going to enhance the space with classic beauty and adequate lighting.


Home Renovation – Trendiness

A common huge mistake is that people are trying too hard to be on trend. Trendiness is a great idea for your wardrobe but it is not a great idea for your remodel. Trends are always changing and if you choose your design scheme solely on something that is hot right now, you are going to be disappointed when the trend changes. It is important to pick classic looks for the expensive pieces in the space and you can add the trendiness when it comes to the paint on the walls or the décor that you put up. These are inexpensive changes that you can make later on as the trends change.
