Televised “Do-It-Yourself” programs make remodeling look so easy! According to their formula for kitchen and bathroom makeovers, all it takes is a little elbow grease and a bit of creativity. While that may be true in TV land, few homeowners possess the extra time, energy and tools required to tackle even a relatively minor project.
One of the biggest challenges is pulling together various elements to create a cohesive design. Although it may not sound difficult. choosing something as standard as a kitchen faucet can be daunting.
I know this from experience. I recently visited a fixture showroom to choose a new faucet for my own kitchen. As soon as I entered the door, I began to realize that this was not going to be easy!
Row after row of gorgeous faucets. Each faucet with a different appealing aspect. The further I walked down the rows, the more confused I got. How does one choose between all these good things? A paralyzing fear crept over me. I knew nothing could be worse than agonizing over a choice only to realize—too late—it was the wrong one.
After visiting this showroom, I understood more fully the value of C&R’s design team. They can take a confusing mass of wonderful products and distill them down to a few great options. Our clients all agree—decision-making is far easier when the choices are between some pre-selected products (that fit their style and budget!) instead of an entire showroom.
Did I pick out a faucet? No, I decided to wait and ask for help from our amazing designers. That way I will avoid a major headache AND get something I will love for a long, long time.
