Facility Space Planning and Design
This facility in New Westminster for "Decide Your Life Inc" is a space where the Art Crawl is held, interesting conversation in the Presentation Hall takes place, business owners meet - work - discuss. Few other features are: a quiet and calm massage room, centrally located office spaces that can be rented out for private business meetings, a fully functional kitchen area, a storage area and studio space to hold private functions keeping in tune with the interests of the patrons.

What stands out in this space is that the owners have used re-purposed architectural features such doors and windows that come from previously built homes that have been demolished and have some very unique vintage glass patterns and vintage door handles to add beauty and interest. It was a pleasure doing the designs for this special place. Please check out more about this business here!
Bob Homer from "Lethologica Content Creation" talks about preparing your home for timeless pictures.

Bob talks about what Homeowners & Realtors Need to Know to Prepare a Home for Real Estate Photography

When you’re trying to sell a home, It’s just as important to get the home ready for photos as it is for showings. Real estate photography captures and preserves every detail of the home and influences whether a buyer comes to the house for a closer look. Some buyers purchase homes just by relying on the listing photos!

Optimally prepare homes for real estate photos by following these tips:

  • Get rid of all clutter. Pack away anything unnecessary that can distract a buyer from imagining themselves living in the home.
  • Scrub and shine every surface so the home has a hotel-like feeling.
  • Imagine the angles the photographer shoots from and see if anything needs to be moved or rearranged accordingly.
  • Open all the curtains and turn on every light to add to the professional’s lighting.
  • Have someone else watch your pet for the day so Fluffy won’t stroll into the picture.

A little effort will go a long way to selling a home via professional real estate photos.

4 Bathroom Design Trends in
"Around the House"
that you cannot overlook!
1. Natural feel with Wood
Drawing design inspiration from nature is a great way to warm a typically very hard room of the house and infuse the space with a calming vibe
2. Feature Floor Tiles

In smaller bathrooms a feature floor tile adds style without overwhelming the space, and when used in a larger bathroom, the effect is elegant.
3. Free Standing Bathtubs

They make striking, sculptural design features, and help set the mood for rest and relaxation. The design of the tub shape the look of the bathroom.
4. Touch of Living Green

A living wall or plant life in the bathroom brings interest to the space as well as creates an environment of nature.

Space Planning, Color Suggestions for Selling a Home fast & easy!

James McBride, one of my Realtor friends called me in to do some consultation on this space regarding space planning, color suggestions and how to better portray the home so buyers walking in immediately fell in love with the simplicity as well as the the functional floor space. It is very important to showcase the floor space you have through a simple plan and some effective touches. Beautiful home and beautiful owners sold their home with multiple offers and well over asking price.

My experience with him in working together was excellent! He is a very upfront, energetic guy who focuses on getting the job done with tact, going that extra mile to make his clients happy! I would highly recommend James as your next choice to sell your home. 

He said to me: Reena I am not one of those guys who just want to be a Mega Realtor and looking for fame only. I want to make it work for my clients, giving them a service that is beyond their expectations. I just want them to be happy. You gotta do what is required to get the place sold and with maximum profit. I look out for the best interest of my clients!" 

I am so glad I could help and become part of the fabulous experience. Thank you James for calling me in to help!!
