The real estate market may be turbulent, but that doesn’t change the basic rules regarding what is most likely your largest investment: your home.
Patrick Colombe, Senior Kitchen and Bath Designer with Home Valu Interiors, says, “It’s shaky right now, but typically, any time you put money in your kitchen and bathroom, regardless of the current economic times, it helps your property stand above the competition. You do have to be smart about how you’re spending it.”
It’s easier for customers to spend their remodeling dollars wisely when they work with Home Valu. First and foremost, the company functions as a one-stop shop for anything and everything you would need for your home, with the exception of appliances and large furnishings. But everything else, including cabinetry, countertops, plumbing, lighting fixtures, flooring, wall coverings, and window treatments—even home accents—all are to be found there. That helps customers visualize what works together, without having to remember 20 different finishes from several different places. Home Valu’s selection also ranges from budget-friendly brands to high-end lines in every category of merchandise.
Perhaps the biggest incentive to work with Home Valu for your next remodeling project is its high level of customer service.
Colombe states, “You’re not just a number when you walk in here. We’ll see you through a project from start to finish. You don’t have a different person helping you each time you walk in the door. You have one go-to person for the entire project.”
Though Home Valu does not sell appliances, it’s happy to coordinate the installation with other vendors.
Colombe points out, “That’s a big thing for our customers. They don’t have to go here for a plumber, there for an electrician, and there for a tile setter. We can do as much or as little of the install as you want us to do.”
Home Valu provides design service free of charge to its customers, which can amount to a tremendous savings.
As Colombe relates, “I’m working with someone right now, and making decisions is his biggest struggle. He really relies on me to pull it all together, and there’s not always one correct way to go. There’s always more than one way you can achieve the look you’re going for.”
