How do you go about sourcing materials?
For work, I often visit trade shows to make new contacts. I also do a lot of online searching for suppliers.
Did you run into any logistics/shipping delays/items stock issues?
Yes, covid delayed us with certain products or items out of stock, but that pushed us to be creative. Sometimes it is nice to go back to the drawing board and decide if it is worth the wait or to try and find a similar product elsewhere.
What is your favorite part about doing home updates and renovations?
I love seeing the design come together. Looking at the design boards we created and seeing them come to life is extremely rewarding.
What is your least favorite part about home updates and renovations?
It is sometimes difficult to find contractors and workers that are honest and take pride in their work. When we do find these people, it makes the project go by so much smoother.
What is the highlight of this update?
The little details really did make a big impact on this renovation. The paint colors, the hardware, simple things that really tie the room together.
Any tips for our readers?
