Remodel & Interior Design FAQ’s

May 11, 2012

  

 question mark

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Who Should I Hire First…the Contractor or the Interior Designer?

 

  • It is a huge benefit for your home renovation to hire the interior designer first.
  • An interior designer will interview you and become knowledgeable about what you want and the overall program for your renovation.
  • Then they will act as your advocate when dealing with the contractor.
  • The homeowner is at a true advantage when they hire the designer first.

 

Why Is It Important To Hire A General Contractor For My Remodel?

  • Will serve as a single point of contact throughout the project
  • They manage all aspects for the project…design, permits, scheduling, purchasing materials, supervising the sub contractors and getting the proper inspections.
  • They must be a licensed, bonded and insured professional and comply with all state and local building codes
  • Most renovations, additions, kitchen and bathroom remodels are best handled by a licensed General Contractor because they normally consist of demolition, slab, framing, electrical, plumbing, etc and this type of work needs to be done by skilled sub contractors and supervised by a professional.

 

 

What Are The Benefits Of Hiring A Design/Build Company?

  • These are “all-in-one” companies which allow you the convenience of just dealing with one key contact person to complete your project.
  • They are responsible for your project from the design conception all the way through final construction.
  • Many also have their own sub contractors and architects.
  • This can save the homeowner time and money and give them piece-of-mind.

 

 

 

My Entire House Needs To Be Updated…Which Room Should I Start With?

  • The Kitchen!
  • It’s a great place to start since it’s the “hub” of the family and the finishes and materials will dictate the rest of the home.
  • It will also give you the best return on your investment.
  • A kitchen makeover will make your home feel brand new.

 

 

I Plan To Hire An Architect And Contractor For My Project…Should I Hire An Interior Designer, Too?

  • If you just hire an architect and contractor you’ll be missing a “key component” in your renovation.
  • Your renovation will require the selection of cabinetry, countertops, fixtures, appliances, flooring, paint colors, scale and placement of furniture, etc.
  • Having these decisions and selections made before construction will prevent many headaches and delays.

 

My Home Needs To Be Remodeled And Decorated…When Should I Hire An Interior Designer?

  • Hire your interior designer early in the process, not just at the end of the project to select finishes and furniture.
  • A designer’s role varies from making material recommendations to helping you make smart decisions about your remodeling budget.
  • Hiring an interior designer at the onset of a project can save money in the long run and make the process run smoothly, timely and efficiently.

 

 

I’d Like To Redecorate My Home…What Are The Benefits Of Using An Interior Designer?

faq furniture

  • It’s a smart choice if you don’t have any decorating or design experience. Even if you have good taste and some talent, an experienced interior designer knows how to make your house look its very best.
  • You’ll get the best possible look for your home because they are experts and they know what kind of décor and furniture will be best for your lifestyle, budget and home architecture.
  • They have great quality resources. Interior designers have access to many showrooms that are not open to the public, which will give your home a true decorated feel.
  • Home decorating and design is not as easy as one may presume. There is a lot of forethought and preparation that goes into making a room look professionally done. Many amateurs end up with poor and disappointing results when they try to do it on their own.

If You’ve Been Living In An Outdated Home…

Tip: How To Set Up The Perfect Home Bar…

May 11, 2012

HOW TO SET UP THE PERFECT HOME BAR

 

 

The Tools:

In order to have the perfect home bar you must have the proper tools to create a delicious cocktail. Below are the “must have” tools.

Bar JiggerJigger

An hour glass shaped container used to measure and pour liquids when making a cocktail. A double jigger comes in handy to ensure that the exact amount of alcohol goes into each glass.  It flips over for each measure.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bar Marini 2Martini Pitcher

A tall and elegant glass pitcher used to mix and serve martinis. Look for a pitcher that has a “pinched” spout that will hold back the ice when pouring.

It’s the essential mixing vessel for martinis!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Muddler

A tool used for mashing fruits, herbs or spices to release their flavors in the bottom of a glass. Crush cilantro for a margarita or mash sugar and citrus together for a mojito.

Be sure to always mash in the shaker or glass you’ll be using.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bar SpoonBar Spoon

A long handled spoon to mix drinks. The long handle can mix a drink in the tallest tumbler.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Citrus Squeezer

Fresh squeezed fruits make the best cocktails!

It’s the quickest and easiest way to get the most juice and least amount of pulp.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bar Knife

Always have sharp knives at your bar for cocktail prep work. Slice and chop everything ahead of time – especially if you’ll be drinking!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shaker

Used to mix drinks by shaking usually with ice

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Best Ice Trays

The bigger the ice cube the slower it melts. These will keep your drink cold without watering it down.  This tray makes square shaped cubes.  It is sold at Sur La Table 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Strainer

A strainer is needed to remove ice before pouring a cocktail into a glass.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bar RimRim Sugars and Salts

Rim a glass with sugar or salt to add an extra decorative touch and flavor to a cocktail. Moisten the rim of the glass with lemon or lime then dip the rim in sugar or salt. If you’re mixing a chocolate martini moisten the rim with Kahlua and dip the rim in cocoa powder. Yum!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cocktail Napkins

Serve it up on a stylish napkin. Many are available in prints, bright colors or monogrammed.
