The Real Cost of DIY Advice

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately: why is it that so many of us don’t seek out professional advice until there’s an emergency on our doorsteps? Why do we so unquestioningly pay for certain services, like dentistry or health care, but then think we can do it ourselves when it comes to others, like home renovations?

When is the best time to hire a professional to save ourselves the most money?


Knowing your Options Helps you Move Forward

The biggest problem with renovations is deciding exactly what to do in any given situation. There are so many questions to resolve. Here are a few my lovely client in Dallas had when analyzing her kitchen.

1. Should I paint these cabinets or is the current colour okay?

A. The existing colour is definitely pink beige. I would paint them to update them but it depends on how you feel about them.
