5 design tips for your home improvement business

5 Design Tips for your Home Improvement Business

Every home improvement business owner could benefit from the occasional “grab-bag”

of handy design tips and best practices, so that’s what we put together! In today’s post,

the Kitchen Solvers team has assembled 5 compelling design tips and ideas to help

your home improvement business thrive in 2016.

1. Planning is everything. Remodeling a bathroom can be as big or a small an

undertaking as you want it to be. But as any home improvement business owner can

tell you, no client is going to be happy with a never-ending project that shuts down

one of the most functional rooms in the house and bleeds their bank accounts dry.

With this in mind, planning is key! Sit down with your clients and have them define

what they want out of the experience in agonizing detail. Are they simply looking to

“spruce things up” with a few fixture replacements, or do they want a major redesign

that involves redoing the bathroom layout? Figure this out well in advance with your

client, or you’ll find your online reviews and referral rates both take a hit!

2. Nail down the aesthetic. When consulting with your clients, try to think in bigger

terms than single fixtures and features. Mixing and matching fixtures from the ultra

modern, retro, and contemporary style guides is a huge faux-pas. It looks terrible

and generally costs more than it would to work through one provider for a cohesive

look. Try to get your client thinking in terms of eras, styles, and aesthetics, rather

than letting them flip through the design books and pick out random favorites.

3. Know your limitations (and remind them of theirs!). Like any other endeavor in

your home improvement business, bathroom remodeling projects will have

limitations. Pre-existing floor plans, cramped square-footage, and electrical wiring

weirdness can all affect your design plan, but they shouldn’t affect your client’s

satisfaction level unless you failed to highlight these problems from day one. It’s

great to encourage your clients to be creative with their design dreams, but make

sure you ground them in reality with a thorough inspection of the space and floor

plan before hand to avoid disappointment!

4. Practice due diligence with your fixture manufacturers. There’s nothing worse

for your home improvement business than using faulty or unreliable fixtures. You

could provide the best installation and redesign service ever, but it doesn’t matter

one bit if your fixtures aren’t reliable. Be diligent with your research. Search online

reviews, talk to former clients and fellow Kitchen Solvers franchisees to learn their

experience with particular brands or manufacturers, and carefully read all warranties.

For best results, involve your clients in this process; they’ll appreciate the

transparency and the open communication you’ve made an effort to provide.

5. Endorse cabinet refacing whenever possible. Cabinet refacing has not only been

the cornerstone of our home improvement business’ success, but it’s been the go-to

option for homeowners looking to maximize the cost-effectiveness of their

remodeling projects. Cabinet refacing takes much less time than traditional cabinet

replacing, which means a quicker turnover and higher profit for your home

improvement business. Since refacing is also faster, less invasive, and a fraction of

the price, this option also gets our franchisees a lot of referrals and positive ratings

on popular business review sites. It’s win-win!
