I am so excited to get started on some refresh projects in the Missouri City area this month and wanted to explain what those projects entail and the motivation behind creating a construction program specific to the space that lives between a remodel and status quo.
This will be my tenth year in the construction industry (fingers crossed for diamonds and not tin or aluminum…ha!) and as such I’ve been privileged to cross paths with dynamic professionals from all trades, who have been willing to share their tips and insight along the way. Sometimes, the advice didn’t come until AFTER something went wrong, but in both construction and life, it’s true that experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted.
One such professional, Jennifer Hilton, is a fabulously talented (and immensely funny) interior designer and I give her full credit for the “refresh” concept. She is very much about working within your means and always finds a way to stay on budget – no small feat in the design industry or new construction in particular. She believes that simple changes can make a big impact and are within reach for most people. A fresh coat of paint, updating trim or moldings, adding cabinetry hardware, or switching out a light fixture are all part of her repertoire due to their price point, level of complexity, and the fact that they don’t leave much of a mess behind.
Besides the refresh possibilities mentioned above, you may consider:
I’ve included photos below of similar projects but have found that the most meaningful ideas have come from those looking to improve their own space – the clients themselves. If you are thinking about a refresh of your own, please contact the Ashbury Construction Company today for a site visit and price. Good advice included at no charge.
