    "Eric and his crew did a masterful job of painting the walls to perfection and making sure that our chestnut woodwork was protected. He oversaw the refinishing of our living room and dining room floor that now glows. He fixed all sorts of things that got our beautiful home ready for sale. All of this Eric did with heart!"

  • What To Do With That Small Room?

    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:

    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.
