I really like the idea that calming colors and adding extra natural lighting will be more efficient, so many times you pick colors you may only like for a short period of time before you are over them. Picking slightly neutral pale tones will give you the option of switching out accessories to change a room over with less effort! Great article, thank you for posting!

Choosing the cheaper option does not always mean its made of lesser quality. Cheaper ones are sometimes the smarter and better choice. Custom made things are more expensive, sometimes tenfold, compared to ready made ones of same quality. Be smart with your choices.

Great advice! Invest in design functionality, quality materials and installation, and love your remodeling project even more with each year that you live in it.
