No matter what your renovation, the things to remember are:
1.  Hire a professional to help you get it right
2.  Money spent up front is always the best money you will spend
3.  When choosing colors for your home, choose your paint color LAST!
4.  Every change you make influences the energy flow and “Feng Shui” of your home.  Before you make changes, consult with a Feng Shui expert to make sure you are not inadvertently robbing yourself — “robbing Peter to pay Paul” as my parents used to say.
The majority of those surveyed (over 100,000) say they will hire a professional to help them get it right.  All those reality shows have done a great job of showing us the true reality of a renovation when taken on without help.  The more you do up front the better will be your renovation and the better your home support you for the rest of your life, and make a resale when you are ready happen smoothly and effortlessly.

The 2013 Houzz & Home survey is the largest survey of remodeling and decorating activity ever conducted, covering historical and planned projects, the motivations behind these projects, and the impact of the economy on home building, renovation and decorating plans among Houzz users across the United States and around the world.

Some of the findings include:

  • Significantly more U.S. homeowners are moving forward with renovation projects compared to last year
  • A majority of homeowners surveyed believe now is a good time to remodel (53 percent)
  • 58 percent of those planning projects in the next two years will hire professional help
  • 81% of Houzz homeowners say reviews are “very important” when it comes to hiring a professional for their project, only 8% said “lowest cost option.”

Together with last week’s Commerce Department report showing the rate of single-family home construction at its highest level in four and a half years, the results of this study point to a strengthening economy, housing and renovation market.

  2. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog
    that’s both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt,
    you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I came across this during my search for something relating to this.

  3. Also, coverings are not hard to put into place and take very little preparation for the flooring.
    Look down at cabinets, doors and wood moldings to see if there are teeth marks, or
    small mounds of wood shavings. If the branch is
    larger than that, for example greater than 10.

    When you are done exercising on a piece of equipment, remember to always unplug it and put the cord in a non-reachable
    place.
