Kitchen, Flooring & Lighting Remodeling Tips for Dummies (or those who don't do it everyday!)

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


  1. Have kitchen sink mounted or leveled so food rolls toward hole or disposal and doesn't get stuck to sides
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
