It goes without saying, we’re big fans of the redesign process. Get a vision, tear it down, and build something new in its place. As much as we love sprucing up our own homes and offices with a little DIY remodeling, we love helping our customers do the same. So, if you’re looking to “get the vision” for your next project, here are some places you can go to get started…
This site came out of nowhere in 2011 for many people. Pinterest has grown so much in the last year that you can truly find anything here. While you might find specific instructions for a remodeling project on Pinterest, you’re more likely to just get visual/aesthetic inspiration. Make your own ‘board’ and start ‘pinning’ to construct the initial vision of your project.
We love going to the local bookstore and perusing stacks of DIY and remodel magazines. A lot of magazines will just provide you with simple ideas. However, some of the more specific publications will give you A to Z instructions for completing whatever project you have in mind.
Home Improvement Book
If you don’t have a technical book on home improvement, get one. When you spend a lot of time looking at “the big picture” on Pinterest and in magazines, it’s easy to forget about the small steps. However, a good instructional home improvement book will remind you of what goes into retiling a floor or sanding down drywall. When you approach your next project from this technical frame of mind, you might come up with different ways to do things that you wouldn’t have otherwise thought of!
