The Style Guide you need to Keep your Remodel On Track

2 min read Use a personal style guide to make choices about your remodel up: you’ll have less stress and a more beautiful result!

I’ve talked about the value of design planning SO MUCH you might be sick of it.  If so, sorry, not sorry.  Your remodel is your home. It’s important!  Creating a master plan for your home update will help you prioritize what you and your home need most … then make it happen! But you also need to keep an eye on the details. Creating a Style Guide for your project works to keep those “little” things on track the same way.

First, a word of caution.  I’m not saying that when you’ve done this work, you’ll be done.   This not a matter of  Making a choice once and never have to make it again.  That is an over simplification.  But you CAN make a choice once and then only have to tweak it for each new scenario that comes up. 

Trust me, this helps!
