1. Pick the paint color last. I get calls all the time from homeowners who want to pick a paint color before they move in. I get the logic. Why not arrive to walls with a fresh coat of paint? Of course you can do it this way, but in my opinion it’s not ideal.
There are thousands of paint colors with various tints, tones and shades. And each one looks different from home to home, because light sources vary, meaning what looks good in your current home might not in your new one. You want the color that best complements your upholstery, artwork, rug and whatever else. You can pick that color only if your stuff is actually inside your home.
3. Hang artwork at the right height. Galleries and museums hang artwork so that the midline (center) of each piece is 57 inches to 60 inches from the floor. (The average human eye level is 57 inches.) And you should do the same.
In a room like this, where the ceilings soar, there might be a tendency to hang the art higher. But remember: It needs to relate to human scale, not the structure’s scale.
If you’re not sure, take a picture. It’s remarkable how much a photo can reveal. Print it out or use Photoshop or an app to draw on the photo. This can give you a sense of whether a larger or smaller piece of art is needed or a tall plant might be best to fill a vacant spot.
4. Know how to arrange furniture on a rug. There are basically three ways you can arrange furniture on your rug.
All on: The rug is large enough to place all of the furniture legs on top of it. This creates a more luxurious feel. For this, bigger is better. Just be sure to leave at least 12 to 18 inches of floor surface on all four sides of the rug’s borders.
All off: If you have a small room, keeping all legs off the rug is a great cost-effective choice. You don’t want to pick too small a rug, though, or it may look insignificant, like an afterthought. The rug should appear as though it could touch the front legs of each of the seating pieces. This approach is best suited when you’re layering a pattern over a larger solid or textured rug.
6. Create a focal point. There are leading roles and supporting cast members in any production. The same holds true in design. Choose your star and make it the focal point to anchor a room. Allow other items to take a secondary role. Don’t ask everything to have a leading role; it will just result in visual noise.
Your focal point might be a dramatic hood in the kitchen, a mantel and art piece in the living room or a headboard in the bedroom. Whatever it is, choose something that will draw attention. In this room the fireplace and the lighting work together as a collective focal point, bringing your eye right to the center of the composition and anchoring it there.
8. Edit your collectibles. Don’t hang on to a piece that just doesn’t fit. I don’t care if your great-aunt Sally gave it to you. If it’s not working for you, then find a new home for it (maybe in a different room).
The unifying theme here is the use of black in the utilitarian pieces. The balance is almost perfect. It reminds me of something Coco Chanel said about accessorizing: “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” In design, know when to stop.
9. Vary the scale. What looks good in the store may look like an elephant in the room when you bring it home. Or it’s too tiny to be of any significance. So always vary scale and proportion.
The oversize sunburst mirror frame fills up the wall space nicely here, while the sand dollars make an interesting grouping below. They would be much too insignificant individually. Threes and fives make for more pleasing arrangements than even numbers.
10. Add layers of lighting. In this kitchen seating area, the backsplash is lit, the artwork is highlighted and the cabinet interiors are filled with light. One central lighting fixture would not have had nearly the same dramatic result.
Professionals build layers of lighting to create interest, intrigue and variety. In a room where everything is lit evenly, nothing stands out. Pick a focal point and perhaps a secondary focal point and highlight those. Add general ambient lighting and some lower lighting, like table lamps, for interest.
So it’s going to be up to you where you want things to go, how much you want to spend, what you want it to look like and how you want it to function. This step-by-step workbook will help you navigate the process through the planning and conceptual phases. Just remember to keep your eye on the prize, and seek the help and guidance of people who’ve been there before. And above all, plan thoroughly.
Eclectic Bathroom by Shotglass Photography
Step 1: What Are You Trying to Achieve?
It seems like a simple enough question that should have a simple answer: “Well, I need a new bathroom.” But when embarking on a journey that will take a good chunk out of your time and bank account, you want to get it right. And you want to be happy with the end result.
Before you do anything, think about what your ideal bathroom would be. Forget constraints of money and space; just imagine what you want and what the intended purpose will be. Who is this bathroom for? Is it a master bathroom? A powder bathroom? A kid’s bathroom? How often will it get used and what will the function be?
Traditional Bathroom by Classic Homeworks
How many people will use it?
How much time do you spend in the bathroom during the morning, afternoon and night?
What’s your routine — how does your current space hinder it and how could a new space improve it?
Do you plan to grow old in this house?
Do you have medical issues like poor eyesight or arthritis to consider?
Do you just want something that’s easy to clean?
Is storage the catalyst? Relaxation?
Or do you just want to update the look for resale?
Would your dream bathroom include towel warmers, steam showers, fireplaces or TVs? All these things will help guide you in your decisions.
A Designer Shares Her Master-Bathroom Wish List
Transitional Bathroom by Stanley Photo
Why Are You Remodeling?
There are three main reasons people want to remodel a bathroom. (For some, it’s a combination of these or all three.)
Updating the look. If you’re happy with the layout of your current bathroom but feel it just needs a refresher, then you’ll be focusing your attention on material selection and perhaps new cabinetry or plumbing fixtures.
Pay attention to the age of your home and the remodels done by previous homeowners. Putting new tile over a foundation rife with dry rot or severely outdated or junky plumbing is only delaying a potentially huge problem down the road. You may want to wait until you can do a complete job right.

Resale value. If you’re updating your bathroom to sell, you’ll want to look at what potential buyers might want. While it’s hard to anticipate what a random buyer is looking for, you can do a little research on what appeals to the majority of homeowners. Houzz’s Bathroom Trends Study is a good place to start, but also talk to designers, neighbors, friends and family about what’s best for your area.
Better functionality and more storage. Perhaps you’ve always hated how the door swings open and hits the vanity, or you’re tired of stacking toilet paper on the toilet reservoir and seeing makeup on the counter. Maybe you never use the bathtub and long for a larger shower. Or wish for two sinks instead of one. Or crave more natural light.
This level of remodel will likely have you gutting the space, and possibly rearranging the elements within it and rerouting plumbing. This would result in an all-new bathroom. This category would be on the higher end too.
10 Tricks to Help Your Bathroom Sell Your House

Step 2: Research and Budget
Before you get ahead of yourself, it’s best to know what you will be able to spend. You probably already have an idea of what you can afford, so the first thing you’ll want to understand is how much a bathroom remodel is going to cost. According to Houzz data, half of homeowners will spend more than $10,000 on a master bathroom remodel.
Consider whether you’re after a basic remodel ($3,000 to $12,000), a mid- to upper-range one ($12,000 to $35,000) or a deluxe remodel ($35,000 to $100,000 and up), and always factor in a cushion of at least 10 to 20 percent more for unforeseen costs that might arise.
Remember: To keep costs down, see if you can make your updates without moving any of the existing plumbing or wiring.

Step 3: Find a Professional
Whether or not to hire a professional for any part of your project is up to you. If you know what you want and where to find what you need, and are confident that your ideas will work, then the design phase could be left up to you.
But know that a professional bathroom designer may be able to think of things you may not have considered — like fitting a washer and dryer into your bathroom, adding a skylight or rearranging the space in a creative way to maximize functionality and efficiency.
There are different ways you can work with a designer. A little guidance from a design consultation or a more developed vision with a design plan may be all you need to get started. For particularly complicated jobs, full design services are probably best.

Mediterranean Bathroom by Allen Construction
If you’re comfortable tackling the demolition, construction and installation yourself, you may not need a general contractor. But it’s a project that can quickly get out of your grasp. If you lack experience, a bathroom remodel could take you several times as long as a professional to complete, and the result might still be of poor quality.
The complexity of routing plumbing, laying tile and flooring, installing vanities and toilets, and more leaves way too much room for error, and you’re likely to mess something up, lose money and end up with a bathroom that’s full of flaws. If you want to cut down a little on your budget, stick to straightforward tasks like painting.
For major structural changes, you may need to hire an architect. Plumbing and electrical work is almost always hired out. In some places, it’s required by law. When in doubt, hire a pro to help.
Once you’ve vetted your collection, you have one more step to complete before you start shopping. “Don’t purchase anything until you have the entire room worked out — the rug, furniture, window treatments and lighting,” says Caccoma. While it’s not necessary to identify the precise pieces, you should have a sense of what you want each piece to look like. In fact, you might even want to assemble a project board, with clippings of the kinds of pieces you’re looking for.
“People often make the mistake of buying an item, and then are locked into decorating the room around that one item,” Caccoma says.
Some designers advocate buying big pieces first. Whether you buy them first or last, it’s usually a good idea to keep those furnishings understated.“Keep your fabrics a little on the neutral side, and then bring the color in on your walls and your throw pillows,” advises Caccoma.
Comfort is critical. Don’t be afraid to sink your money into seating.
“Buy the best sofa you can afford,” advises Juestel. Try to sit or lie on the piece before you buy, and if you can afford it, upgrade your cushionsfrom solid foam to foam wrapped in down. If you do most of your sitting in the family room rather than the living room, spend the money on those pieces, instead of on pieces that’ll never get used.
Upholstered pieces are a relatively large investment, so you’ll want things that will last through changes in your lifestyle and taste. As a rule, it’s best to go with simple, clean lines. And don’t fret too much about whether furnishings will go together, Caccoma says. Generally speaking, if you like the pieces, they’ll work together.
“Pick something because you like it,” she says. “Don’t worry about why and where it’s going to go.”
Where you should shop, Juestelsays, depends on your style, budget and quality expectations — as well as the amount of time you have to devote to the project.
If you’re on a budget, consider shopping at secondhand stores, consignment shops, Craigslist and antiques stores, where you can often find top-dollar merchandise at bottom-dollar prices.
If you don’t have that kind of time, stick to trusted furniture outlets. Caccoma is not a fan of buying furniture from department stores, she says, because furniture is not their primary business, so the quality varies and the styles might not be current. Also, avoid fly-by-night operations. “Buy things from places where if there’s a problem, you know they’ll stand behind their product,” she advises.
How can you tell a good piece of furniture from one that’s not so good?
- If you’re buying an upholstered piece, lift up a corner and shake it; if it feels light or wobbly, take a pass. Likewise, the heavier the cushion, the longer it will last.
- When shopping for cabinets, look for drawers with dovetail joints in the corners.
- In the market for a mattress? Pay attention to coil count: the higher the count, the better the support.
You’ll find plenty of tips like these in Houzz’s shopping guides for sofas, sleep sofas,sectionals, mattresses, dining chairs, bar stools and dining tables.

A large number of business owners overlook the significance of reliable cloud hosting. This is why there are some sites that load slowly, are bugged or experience several issues that annoy visitors. There are times when a dedicated server works well for some websites. Because there isn’t a universal server that will fit everything, cloud hosting is a great choice. More and more businesses in general now favour cloud hosting.

Use these tips as a guide when hiring an A/C contractor :
1. Request References
Ask the A/C contractor for a list of references you may contact. Ask the references about the services that were performed and their overall experience with the contractor. Ask if the contractor stuck to the estimated budget and completion date for the project. Find out if the references were completely satisfied with the job that was performed
2. Cost Comparisons
Get at least three written estimates to compare the cost of the different contractors. Expect the contractors to pay a visit to your home to evaluate your current system. A bigger system isn’t always better, a reputable contractor should examine your duct system, if necessary and size the heating and cooling system based on the size of your home, level of insulation, and windows. Make sure the contractors create an itemized estimate so you can compare cost, efficiency, and warranties between the bids. Don’t always assume the lowest bid is the best, it may be less efficient and result in higher energy costs.
Ask if the contractor is associated with a trade organization. Members often have greater experience and are expected to uphold to a strict code of ethics. Quality HVAC manufacturers only want trustworthy contractors installing their products. Find out if the contractor has been approved as an authorized dealer
4. Get Everything in Writing
Once you have decided on an A/C contractor, get all the details in writing. Make sure the contract includes: the contractor’s information, system model numbers, exact costs, estimated start and completion date, and details of the work being done. Ask if there is a warranty, if so make sure to include it in the contract. Be sure to read the fine print carefully and their license number is on the contract
5. Deposits and Payment
Do not pay large payments up front. Pay by check or credit card for added protection. If paying by check, make it out to the business. Paying by credit card provides some recourse should the job not be completed as stated in the contract. Make sure your contractor provides you with releases of liens from his subcontractors and suppliers with each payment and a Contractor’s Affidavit at the completion of the job. This assures that everyone involved with this job has been paid.
6. Proof of Insurance
You might be surprised to find out that services and installing air conditioning units can be pretty hazardous, which is why it’s important your service company is covered by general liability and workers’ compensation. Don’t hesitate to ask for proof when you’re talking with a customer service representative.
The installment, maintenance, repair, or replacement of an HVAC system is expensive. Follow all the suggested steps above to make the best choice and save your company money and time. Don’t hesitate to ask for copies of all necessary paperwork—such as license, bond, insurance, or other professional certificates and permits—even if the contractor is recommended by your best friend.
