So I've heard even when you build a custom home, there are things you wish you knew or would do over.. Here is what I learned from experience from rehabbing my personal condo and some tips I tell clients. I hope they help you or someone you know! Any suggestions I would love to hear at Amy@AmySellsTheBeach.com
- Have kitchen sink mounted or leveled so food rolls toward hole or disposal and doesn't get stuck to sides
- Make sure your floor installer knows you want the LEAST amount of thresholds (those ugly pieces of trim that break up the flow of a room when unnecessary.) My flooring people did a great job of having my beautiful luxury vinyl flow throughout the condo, even the bathroom for a more spacious look
- Go for egg shell, washable flat or Satin finish paint for a more updated, high-end feel. Shiny painted walls and ceilings makes a home look cheaper and highlights any flaws.
- Don't feel obligated to have the big ugly florescent light in the kitchen. Go for recessed or hanging lights, even higher-end lighting like rectangular chandelier lighting. Your kitchen doesn't have to look like the high school cafeteria or 1980's office building.
