Planning Your Home Remodeling Project

Living RoomRoofing Project

Los Angeles is home to many knowledgeable and experienced contractors that are ready and able to help you bring your home remodeling Los Angeles project to life. Save yourself the burden of trying to remodel your home by yourself and let the general contractor Los Angeles professionals at Sky Renovation save you some serious time and money while giving you a beautiful new room addition, bathroom, kitchen, patio, or roof – whatever your project. Be advised, there are plenty of sly people out there claiming to be remodeling contractors, but that does not mean they are skilled at the craft or the right person for the job. However, we at Sky Renovation pride ourselves on maintaining excellent customer service and can do the work you want, the way you want it.

Planning is the first crucial step in the remodeling process.  Pre-renovation analysis needs to be done on your part before you even contact anyone else. This is a very important element. You need to be aware of the size and scope of the work you want done and have a general idea of your desired end result. You need to know how organized the contractor is and what kind of plan they can draw up for you. Some can even do the whole design process for you as well which can be a huge plus – we happen to offer this service at Sky Renovation.

The second step to achieving successful project results is to know what qualities to look for in a general contractor and what your expectations are for the process. Any home remodeling contractor needs to understand and be able to deliver what you want and therefore needs a good working knowledge of the project. One key aspect from the beginning that signals you are working with a good contractor is that they give you a free cost estimate based on your budgeting requirements so that way you know right off the bat what you can and cannot afford to have done – this is our policy at Sky Renovation. This will also head your relationship with your contractor in a positive and honest direction. Communication is the key to success with any home remodeling project so getting along well with your contractor is an absolute must. Customer satisfaction is our utmost priority at Sky Renovation.

To get started, before committing to anything, we will have a sufficient interview with you about your project. You are the employer in this process, after all. Have your plans, questions, and concerns written down and ready beforehand for the interview. Our goals for our client relationships are:

  • Clear and easy communication
  • Likeability
  • Knowledge and experience
  • Trustworthiness
  • Honesty

Home Decorating Tips: Let the Light In

When it comes to your home, most people want to accentuate two aspects: space and comfort. Everyone wants their home to look as open as possible, in both sense of the word. They want it to be both spacious and inviting to guests. The key to achieving this is: let the light in.

Have you ever noticed how closed in a hospital hallway typically feels? The reason is usually the total lack of natural light (compounded by the presence of sickly fluorescent light). So if you’re looking to make your home more spacious and inviting, it’s only logical that you should increase the presence of natural light. Fortunately, you can do so with these simple home decorating tips, which are especially useful in sunny climes like Southern California.

Change Your Drapes

Big, heavy drapes shut the light out. Instead, opt for lighter cloths like cotton and linen. Choose lighter colors to let more light in. Changing your drapes is easier than changing your windows, and can still let a lot more natural light into your rooms.

Dress Sunny Rooms in Lighter Colors

Lighter colors – for walls and furniture – reflect more light and make your rooms appear more spacious. In rooms with lots of windows, lighter colors serve a dual purpose. In addition to making the room lighter, they will also be less susceptible to fading, which often comes from too much sun exposure.

Mirror, Mirror

Hanging at least one mirror in every room is fast and easy, yet results in a huge improvement. Mirrors make your rooms look bigger and help spread the light around, if used properly. The trick is to place the mirrors properly. You should only hang your mirrors on walls that are perpendicular to the windows; placing a mirror directly across the room from the windows can actually reflect the light right back out.

Remodeling

Of course, remodeling your existing doors and windows can really increase the flow of natural light. If you’ve experimented with minor decorating changes and still don’t have the appearance you want, we are always here to help. Just look at how much more open new doors and windows can make your rooms look.
