Blog Topics: home decor & maintenance
After having your ideal home built or renovated, then comes the fun part of home decor and maintenance. It’s easy to get swept away for hours on Pinterest and Houzz gathering ideas, but when it’s time to make decisions and order materials, the project gets real, real quick.
Ask anyone who has finished a home remodel project and they will tell you they had no idea how many finishes there were in a house. Most rooms require you to decide on flooring, paint colors, light fixtures, doorknobs, cabinet style, countertops, plumbing fixtures, tile… the list goes on and on.
If you do a little homework you can find quality, low maintenance finishes and fixtures for a variety of budgets and decor styles. You just need to know where to look. Whether you want to change from traditional to contemporary or select a new stone countertop that won’t stain at your next dinner party, we can offer you guidance that will make the decisions easier. Dallas architects, Laura and Holly of hpd architecture + interiors share tips on home decor and maintenance, as well as host regular related podcasts. Don’t go it alone. We are here to help.
