    "The painting/repair team assigned to us was so professional, polite and efficient. The attention to small details made our house look really great. Tom, Bill and the team really listened to our concerns, whether small or large, and eliminated them all. It is so delightful to have had such a positive experience. We appreciate it very much."

  • Solutions For Smaller Rooms

    Solutions

    If you have a small room in your home and looking to redecorate, take a look at some of these tips courtesy of Better Homes & Garden:

    Perfect Pairing

    Even small homes can live large, thanks to smart furniture choices and use of space. When space is limited, keep scale in mind and find furniture that isn't oversize. A glass coffee table and sofa and chairs with exposed legs do the trick in this tight living room.

    Expand the Space

    Mirrors reflect light, which will make a space feel larger than it is. This living room is filled with dark, rich finishes, but the space is anything but cavelike thanks to large windows -- which let in lots of natural light -- and plenty of reflective surfaces, such as this mirror above the fireplace.

    Crisp and Clean

    Creating storage in a small kitchen can be tricky. Designing a storage-smart island such as this one is the perfect way to maximize a tight space. And the centered pulls add a nice personal touch by making the cabinet doors look like old-fashioned bins.
