Add Storage Not Space:
Storage space will never go out of style, but if you’re sticking with the same footprint, here are a couple of ideas to add more:

Install cabinets that reach the ceiling: They may cost more — and you might need a stepladder — but you’ll gain valuable storage space for Christmas platters and other once-a-year items. In addition, you won’t have to dust cabinet tops.

Hang it up: Mount small shelving units on unused wall areas and inside cabinet doors; hang stock pots and large skillets on a ceiling-mounted rack; and add hooks to the backs of closet doors for aprons, brooms, and mops.

Communicate Clearly with Your Remodelers:
Establishing a good rapport with your project manager or construction team is essential for staying on budget. To keep the sweetness in your project.
:
Drop by the project during work hours: Your presence broadcasts your commitment to quality.
Establish a communication routine: Hang a message board on site where you and the project manager can leave daily communications. Give your email address and cell phone number to subs and team leaders.Set house rules: Be clear about smoking, boom box noise levels, available bathrooms, and appropriate parking.Be kind: Offer refreshments (a little hospitality can go a long way), give praise when warranted, and resist pestering them with conversation, jokes, and questions when they are working. They’ll work better when refreshed and allowed to concentrate on work.

I’ve been a resident of Bucks County since 1979 and have been a REALTOR since 1995. I have earned the respect of friends & associates by maintaining a level of fairness & understanding of their needs. A big part of my process is the conversation. I believe a lot of agents have forgotten this. To sit down & really listen to what you are looking to accomplish & what your dreams and wishes are. I’ve always said it all begins with a conversation & it holds true for everything.
