I’m working on a little side project, and I’m looking for some feedback; that’s where you come in!
What questions do you have about tile? Do you wonder about what kinds of tile to use on particular projects? Questions about designing a backsplash? Where to use tile?
Let me know what you want to know! 🙂
I have to toot my own horn once in awhile, right? After all, if I don’t, who will?
This week on Ava Living’s home page, one of my designs has been selected to be featured in the slideshow! I am photo #10. The category this week is Sun Rooms; the photo is from a project I completed last summer.
It’s always an honor to be featured by Ava Living. Check it out and let me know what you think! And, if you are interested in online design services, be sure to request your FREE Designer Room Review to get started.
I enjoy writing, and I have written articles on the subjects of interior design, decorating and home improvement at Suite 101. Occasionally, I will be linking to one of them from this blog. I love teaching homeowners about design and how to make their home decor projects successful!
Are there any subjects you would like to see me write about? I am open to all suggestions! Leave a comment with your suggestions, and you just may see an article link on that subject in the near future…
Have you ever hired a contractor for a home improvement project, only to have the project go terribly wrong? I have heard numerous horror stories from my clients over the years, and I have unfortunately experienced some of my own!
I am so very thankful to have a fantastic group of local contractors I can recommend to my clients. There are some ways you can check out your contractor prior to hiring him for the job. I just wrote an article on the subject, and you can find it here.
Of course, to avoid disappointment, you need to do your homework in finding a quality contractor to work with. Also, be sure you have realistic expectations of how long your project should take, how much it will cost and the headaches that are inevitable during any home improvement project! Sometimes, the contractor is bad. Sometimes, headaches are just a part of the deal.
Share your contracctor horror stories here – feel free to vent (politely) and we can all commiserate together.
In an effort to help do-it-yourselfers with their home design projects, I recently started writing How-To articles for the E-How website. Of course, you will find other fun ideas thrown in, too, but many of my articles are about home improvement or decorating ideas. You can see them here. I would love for you to rate the articles and comment – either here or at the E-How website. Be sure to subscribe to the RSS feed – that way, you will be notified when I write a new article. Hopefully, I can inspire you to try a new project!
