It requires a combination of creativity, technical skill, and attention to detail to achieve a successful design that meets the needs of the occupants and enhances the overall aesthetic of the space.

Remodel vs. Renovation

No matter which term you use, there’s a good chance whoever you’re talking to knows what you’re referring to, but have you ever stopped and wondered if you’re using the correct word? Or if the contractors, designers, paint pros, and other experts you’re working with think you’re unfamiliar with the process because you’re using the wrong word?

Is there a difference between a remodel and a renovation? Well, it depends on who you ask.

Technically, a renovation and remodel are defined differently. While a remodel changes the form of something (like adding a new shower to an existing bathroom), a renovation focuses more on restoring something old into good repair (fixing up a creaky floor, for example)
It is making subtle, very pointed changes in order to turn [a space] into something that functionally makes sense is what renovation and remodeling may mean. 
Whether you call it a renovation or a remodel, one thing’s for sure: It’s important to plan your project with care. One of the biggest tips to consider is,  for undergoing your home project is to pay attention to the rooms you use the most (and least!) and spend accordingly.

Interior Detailing

Interior detailing is the process of designing and specifying the decorative elements and finishes within an interior space. This includes selecting and specifying items such as wall and floor finishes, trim details, lighting fixtures, window treatments, and furnishings. Interior detailing is focused on the aesthetic and functional aspects of the interior design.

The level of detail involved in interior detailing can vary depending on the project and the client’s needs, but typically involves careful consideration of materials, color schemes, textures, and patterns to create a customized and unique design that meets the client’s expectations.

Kitchen and Bathroom Designs

Kitchen and bathroom designs are specialized areas of interior design that focus on creating functional and visually appealing spaces for cooking, cleaning, and grooming. These designs involve the selection and placement of fixtures, appliances, and materials, as well as consideration of space, flow, and user needs. A successful kitchen or bathroom design requires attention to detail, knowledge of building codes, and a cohesive style that complements the overall aesthetic of the home or commercial space.
