Beautiful imagery & inspiration surround us everyday. Whether they come from magazines, billboards, or social media, images of beautiful spaces are constantly filling us with a sense of inspiration & longing for a better space within our own homes. The question is, ‘How do I get there?’ Now this question is a tough one for everyone, so don’t feel bad if while watching HGTV or scrolling through Pinterest you keep coming back to it. It’s easy to become overwhelmed in a world filled with beautiful spaces & constantly shifting trends, but we’re here to help you sort out the images around you & the thoughts they bring up in your head. Here are some simple steps you can take to lead you in the direction of the space of your dreams.

1. Defining your Direction

This is for sure the most daunting but most important step towards the space of your dreams. Before you can start planning the space of your dreams, you need to be able to define what that dream is. This can be as simple as finding some specific inspiration images that you feel reflect your vision, to pinpointing a rough color palette that you want to build your space around. Either way, it’s important for you to go in to the project knowing how you want your space to live. If you know that your family is big into large group dinners & you are constantly struggling for space within your kitchen, then you might want to enlarge your kitchen & add some additional seating area for the whole family to be able to comfortably gather together. Once you know the general goal you want to achieve with your space in terms of everyday living & the way in which you want it to look, you’re officially ready to start looking for someone to help you make that happen.

2. Finding a Contractor

Although a plethora of contractors can be easily found through a quick google search or an ISO post on Facebook, it’s important to take your time when finding someone who can handle your vision & your home with care. There are several factors you should consider when looking for a contractor to assist you in transforming your home. You should first consider if their overall style in regards to their previous projects will mesh well with your current vision. You also want to take into consideration their specialties because a contractor who specializes in kitchens might not be the best fit for your basement renovation project. Lastly, you want to consider the value of the contractor. It’s easy to get caught up on a price tag, but take into consideration their expertise, guidance, & overall skill when solidifying your choice for a contractor.
