Cities that invest in a reputable Landscape Architect to develop a master plan for their downtown have spaces designed for people, and pedestrians flock to the area to stroll in the tree and green lined meandering pathways to enjoy a bit of nature.  Corporations that invest in interior designers create an environment that is attractive to employees and customers that visit. Here are some tips on professionals that can help elevate the experience of your home for yourself and your guests.

For Maintenance: Even homeowners who have a “handyman talent,” would benefit from periodically hiring a home inspector. You want to keep your home in good condition, and a home inspector is trained to identify problems in many specialty areas. It can be a significant cost savings to find a problem in its early stages, like a water leak, or wiring that is a fire hazard. They will check heating & air conditioning systems, electrical systems, plumbing, roof, attic, and visible insulation, walls, ceilings and floors, windows and doors, the foundation and structure. For checking the building envelope—behind the walls where an inspector cannot see, you may want to hire an energy auditor, to see where you are not keeping the conditioned air in and the outdoor air out. It can save you money on your utilities.

For a Fresh, Updated Look: If the traffic flow, size and layout of the rooms in your home meet your needs now and in the near future, and your house only needs some updating or a fresh look, you may want to hire an interior designer. They have a talent for choosing new flooring, paint colors, textiles and décor. You may want to hire a specialty company to take care of styles that date your home, like popcorn ceilings. You may want exterior cosmetic upgrades, like stone skirting on your home, or stucco walls, or tile roofing . If your home is remodeled how you want, and you have an outdoor living space, you might want to extend your personal likes and style all the way to the perimeter of your property by hiring a Landscape Architect to make your home worthy of Phoenix Home and Garden magazine! You can save money by buying younger plants if you can wait for them to grow to the scale where they’ll be giving the wow effect.

To Customize Your Home: A reputable design-build firm will have the staff that will interview you for your needs and wants, develop a plan to customize your home within your budget, and build to your specifications. Whether you want a whole house remodel to transform it to reflect your lifestyle and concept of home, or you develop a master plan of what projects you will do now, and later to budget for, the sooner you do the project, the more days you will have to enjoy it! It can be motivating to save, or even bring in additional income with a defined goal of what you want your home experience to be.

Taking care of the asset of your home, keeping it current is being a wise investor. Remodeling your home to make it how you want it to be, is a wise investment in you and your family’s life! You have worked hard, and deserve it!


You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.  Psalm 18:28
