Smallish projects and other stuff!

 Really, I am impulsive or procrastinating  as I began to edit this blog I suddenly needed the smell of fresh cut lavender on my desk so I quickly ran downstairs and cut a bunch from my herb garden in my slippers an  pj’s,  so what!  Anyway……..small projects…………….

Small projects can make a big impact.  I know a first time home owner who was not quite ready for the expense of a major kitchen or bath remodel and was not at all confident in the process of selecting materials, finishes, & products.  So she decided to start with the guest bathroom.  This 5x5 space became the testing ground for future projects.  She found she was able to make selections, work with a contractor, designer, and maintain her budget.  She  became familiar with the process of selecting materials, ordering products, managing a realistic time schedule and viola!! CONFIDENCE!

Small project = BIG impact!!  Even the small projects make you feel good about your home.  If your budget  does not allow for a major renovation embrace the process set goals and break the large renovation into smaller projects.

Here are some helpful hints on this process:

Start with a room that bothers you the most (even if it is small)

Decide your over all style and color palette; this does not have to be room specific just a general idea of the colors and styles you like the most.

Do not confuse style and trend you can appreciate a trend but have to live with a style.

If you are unsure or a have a limited budget pick a small project that you can experiment with.

Become familiar with products and price points.  You may fall in love with a Wolf Range but,  it may not be in your budget there are alternatives that may fit your budget.

Realize that that even a small project is going to be disruptive…live with it!  You are getting a project done, lucky!

Have fun, keep it small.........at first!
