Remodeling a kitchen or bathroom can be daunting. Do I do it myself or do I get help from the professionals? These are important questions to ask yourself because if you don’t know exactly what you’re doing a remodel job can become an exercise in frustration costing more time and money than you originally planned.
There are many things to think about:
- Will it be a full remodel (ground up) or a partial (replacing some lights, painting, etc.)?
- What is your budget?
- How much time and effort do you want to put into it?
- Will you do it yourself or hire a professional?
If the remodel is being professionally done then consider:
- Always get more than one estimate.
- If you use a designer choose one that is reputable, provides a background check and does not ask for the payment up front.
- Never pay up front.
- The subcontractors they use should be licensed, background checked and insured.
- Ask for proof of insurance.
- You retain full “say” in everything that is done.
- Read the contract fully and very carefully.
- If there is anything like asbestos removal or mold remediation it is covered in the contract.
If you’re doing the remodel yourself consider:
- Be sure you get a permit to do your work.
- Research the items you are planning to do carefully.
- Know how to do all aspects of the job safely.
- Make your plan with consideration to the extra time it will take to do it yourself and the inconvenience of living with the remodel taking place.
- If you need professional assistance on some items, hire professionals that are licensed and background checked.
- Electrical work should always be done by a licensed, professional electrician.

Everyone loves a home interior that is inviting and well-lit, why not ensure your outdoor spaces have the same attention to detail. Strategically placed landscape lights can not only help with a home’s security, but can highlight a home’s architectural features and draw attention to landscape features.
Five great places for Outdoor Lighting:
- The front entrance. A well-lit front can help guests find their way, help with security and makes a great first impression. Wall lanterns on each side of the door or under a porch or other overhang, can help guide the way.
- The back door. Most home owners use back door lighting for security. This is a great place for a motion sensing light.
- Outside the garage. This is another great place for a motion sensor. These fixtures usually have a photocell that turns the lights on at dusk and off at dawn to save energy.
- Decks, porches, and patioscan be converted into evening retreats by concealing low-voltage mini-lights under steps, railing or benches.
- Steps, paths, and drivewaysshould be illuminated to make sure everyone is able to move about easily and safely after dark.
