When designing or thinking of ways to renovate, try to think outside of the box. Most customers tend to use traditional materials such as hardwoods and granite which are great, but there are so many other excellent materials on the market today to really make your next renovation project pop.

Examples: Concrete counters, concrete furniture for outside, transparent concrete, hardwood for accent walls, exposed beams, coffered ceilings, barn board, stone walls, LED lighting in floors, crown moulding with LED lighting and so on. What I like to do is when going out to restaurants or malls, I grasp different ideas and use them for either myself or my clients.
