For most homeowners, a kitchen renovation is something that happens infrequently. The investment, numerous choices required, and the timeline can make the entire idea overwhelming. Having remodeled countless kitchens, we understand what is needed in terms of execution and have a team fully dedicated to completing Twin Cities custom home remodeling projects. Our first step is to meet with the homeowner to understand what their vision is in terms of materials. Websites like Pinterest and Houzz allow homeowners to quickly see multiple designs and share their ideas with our team. Once we’ve gathered this information, we can use 3D technology to help visualize how we can improve your home’s interior or exterior. Once a design has been agreed on, we’re able to have clients work with our interior designer to pick complementary colors and finishes. In terms of budget and timelines, there are many times that homeowners are surprised by the information they receive, simply because home remodeling reality shows do a poor job of setting realistic expectations. Oftentimes programs are sponsored by major manufacturers that offer products at a deeply discounted cost. Many shows show accelerated timeframes because they provide a better viewer experience.
