My Carolina Today: Judy’s Remodeling Checklist

 

Those out dated kitchen appliances must go! It is time to remodel and we have come to the rescue. If you are thinking about remodeling any area in your house, we recommend that you watch this video for the complete “Design Lines Remodeling Checklist” from Judy.  

Here are Judy’s takeaways.

1. Decide on scope of the project. Take into account the function & use of the space, storage needs, universal design features, green design, lighting, etc.

 
2. Decide on whether you will live in the space while the renovation is going on or do you need to set up temporary food prep.

 
3. Consider hiring professionals – builder, interior designer and architect. Get references.

 
4. Do your research to manage expectations.

 
5. After deciding on a contractor, give him as much information as possible for accurate quote.

The focus of this first segment is to give the viewer tips on how they can change the whole feel of a room by changing the art, lamps and pillows.

When determining what accessories to use Judy explains it all starts with the things you love that tell your story, whether a hand made needle point pillow from your grandmother or the tree of life picture you bought on your travels to Egypt. From there find a consistent thread as you explore the things to combine together.
