Designing

I. Don't. Know. What. To. Do!

Is the picture above your reaction when someone asks what you are planning on doing with your remodel? Do you know that you want to finish your unfinished basement but you have basically no idea where to start? Don't worry, we get that all the time.

Most people claim that they have done a lot of homework, but I would guess that the majority of people simply know that they want to change or add something, they just aren't sure what. Guess what? That's okay! No really, it is. You aren't, "wasting our time" and you shouldn't be "really sorry that I'm not sure what can be done with this space," it's OKAY!

KC Home Solutions is proud to announce that we now have an Interior Design Specialist on staff! Let's first break down what an Interior Designer does. Interior designers identify, research, and creatively solve problems related to the function of interior environments in order to enhance quality of life and protect public health, safety, and welfare. Interior designers perform services such as programming, design analysis, spatial design, specifications of furnishing and materials, construction documentation, and construction observation.

So what does that mean for you? It means, once again, that if you don't know what a space can handle, you're good. If you don't know where a bathroom can or should be placed, no worries. If you have a space and you want an idea for it, you came to the right place. Our designer can help, right along with any of our other staff members. We want to do everything we can to make your project come out just how you want, even if you don't know what you want!

So no more of this guy ^...

And a lot more of this guy ^. We've got your back!

You need to provide WHAT?

Some things we all take for granted. The sun always (so far) comes up in the east for example. The other thing that we seem to get every time we go to homes for a initial visit? People thinking that they need to provide us with all sorts of special items for their project.

Blueprints I have yet to see. But people apologizing for having a "dirty" or "messy" house always seems to happen. Some folks hand draw things for us. Some people will measure out spaces. Recently we had an individual request a bid and said that we didn't need to come to their house because they could provide everything we needed. We trust you all, but it's always good to see the space you may be working on, plus some people have been known to struggle with basic measurement principles. But not you, you're good!

So what do we need from a client when we get to their house? We don't need detailed drawings and measurements, we'll take them if you want to give them out of course. You don't need to have all of the fixtures and paint picked out when you meet us. You don't need to know what the exact tile texture and color is. We will help you with all of those details. Basically, we just need to know what you would like to do with your project. We'll take all of the details you would like to provide, but in the end if you need for us to design a space from scratch because you have no clue what you want to do, we can do that!

 So don't let our visit to your home be stressful. Relax. Just talk with us and we'll go from there. Sound good?
