Mere words, whether written or spoken, sometimes cannot fully capture the beautiful improvements you envision for your new home renovation. Often, the most precise way to explain to a contractor exactly what you’re looking for is through pictorial representation. For those of us who are artistically challenged, the best and most expedient solution is to take a photo.
Photos Can Help You:
• Define your space
• Pinpoint colors
• Give examples of patterns and textures
• Provide instant understanding of your preferred design style
• Illustrate the existing furniture to be included
• Convey your precise ideas to your Vancouver home renovation company
One of the first tasks you should undertake when first considering a home remodeling project in is to gather pictures. Initially, along with the necessary measurements, you will want to take various snapshots of the space selected for your Vancouver home renovation. Be sure to take pictures from all relevant angles to give proper scope to the job at hand.
The next crucial step in the renovation process is the gathering of inspirational and example photos. The pictures of the homes of your friends and neighbors in Vancouver, brochures from remodeling centers, and clippings from magazines can all provide inspirational examples of what you are looking for in your project. However, even these can fall short of illustrating what you would like to achieve within your particular home. Using picture based websites such as Pinterest or even searching key words using Google Images, you’ll find there are virtually endless examples of not only remodeling materials and textures, but also examples of various completed projects and renovated rooms.
The internet can provide a plethora of inspiration and detailed examples of practically anything you need. Simply right click a photo and save it to your hard drive to preserve it for future reference. From paint treatments and brick work to tiling and unique bathroom configurations, you will be able to find pictures that convey effectively your wants and needs.
Now that you have gathered all relevant photos, what do you do with them? Keeping them jumbled up in a file is not your best option for optimum communication of your ideas to your Vancouver home renovation company. Hence, it is useful to organize and paste all of your collected photos together in scrapbook-fashion. This can include pictures of your space, patterns, colors, textures, and other inspirational completed examples. You can do this physically on heavy stock paper, or you can electronically paste it into a word document to be printed out or emailed.
Ultimately, the key to a successful home renovation is communication. There are an infinite combinations and home improvement possibilities. Therefore, to get the results you want, you have to be able to express your ideas clearly. When words seem inadequate, pictures can step in and quickly and precisely help you communicate your ideas, and subsequently, secure a successful home remodel.
