Your Home Looks Fabulous

You walk into beautiful home and you wondering, how much did this cost? How can I get my home to look like this? Renovations are pain-in-the-butt. Everyone knows it, but soon-or-a-later, you everyone has to go through the trouble of renovations. Getting your home to look fabulous means staying away from classic mistakes.

Mistake number one, hiring the wrong contractor.

“You need to make sure that the contractor is right for you, because he’s going to be in your home, and you want to make sure it’s the right contractor,” says, Jeff Devlin of Spice Up My Kitchen.

Stephen Drucker, editor in chief of House Beautiful adds, “When you interview contractors and you check references, the thing you want to find out is, how fast do they return phone calls? A contractor who returns phone calls fast has nothing to hide, and it’s going to reduce your anxiety level.

Another common mistake is underestimating your budget.

Devlin says, “You never know what’s going to happen once you start the demolition process. As soon as you open up a wall, you never know what you’re going to find behind that wall, so you need to pad your budget, and you need to be realistic.”

The most common mistake probably deals with bathroom and kitchen remodeling. You dream about granite or silestone countertops, and you’ll do anything to get it! Don’t over spend! People think that the more expensive the granite contractor is the better he or she is. That isn’t the case.

For example, Counter Intelligence is a Maryland based company that specializes in low cost granite and silestone renovations.  The material is available at factory direct prices, which almost guarantees that you get the best price. Working with experts who can deliver new granite countertops over a weekend – Just 3 days, and you’ll have your dream countertops.
