DON’T do it yourself. Remodeling a bedroom, dining room or family room is very different than taking on the challenge of a kitchen or bathroom. A specialized designer should be brought in to figure logistics, suggest proper materials and make a functional and cost efficient room that specifically reflects your taste, style and personality. This is NOT a do-it-yourself project! Find a NKBA professional in the Consumer Workbook section.
DO pick a qualified professional. Choose several designers in your area; meet with each of them and trade ideas and suggestions. Make sure they are qualified; ask to see past projects and/or a portfolio and discuss your budget. It’s also a good idea to ask for references and checkout their showroom or store if possible. Pick the designer that satisfies your taste and style most. You should never be persuaded to do anything you don’t like or that’s too high-end for your budget. A good designer will work closely with you until your dream home comes true! Pick among more than 36,000 qualified professionals in the Consumer Workbook section.
