It’s really a pain to blog from my cell phone and my part 1 post a few days ago was really incomplete. Here’s to a sleepless night – I’ve been up for hours – and a couple of hours to do a little blogging.
Things to Remember: In addition to the look and costs, also consider their practicality when you buy them. For example, if you have young children or seniors in your home, try to choose faucets that are easy for small or arthritic hands to handle. I was in shock that it was different shades of blue, and that one of those shades was the SAME as my wall color!
Next, we built a platform for the shelving units to sit on, so that the bottom of the glass doors would sit just above the top of the baseboards. Our IKEA finds slid into place, fitting perfectly between the studs. The compensation received may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog.

Then, if you still have money in the budget, you can make the changes that will enhance the home in more subtle ways.
But, Redd says, don’t let the contractor choose the materials. Shop for them yourself instead. You’ll be sure to get what you want, and you won’t have to pay for the contractor’s shopping time. A quick way to update your kitchen island is to replace the counter top. We recently were able to purchase a black piece of granite for our kitchen island and replaced the existing wood top. And because the granite is so heavy, there is no need for adhesive, it just stays in place. The first thing to consider when looking at the kitchen is its placement in terms of the whole house.
In addition to being the primary contact between homeowner and the company leading your home renovation, having a general contractor to lead and communicate with the other sub contractors is just as vital. We actually considered buying the sink pictured here, it is from the Standard Collection by American Standard. We would have purchased the matching pedestal and not the chrome stand though. I think that I’ve made a few of these and didn’t know it. No wonder some of my rooms don’t seem to be put together. Great lens and tips. Blessed. We are so very happy with the work from Webster and Sons. Our new bathroom makes it feel like we have a new home!
