WICHITA, Kan., June 29, 2012 -- Kitchen and bath remodeling projects can be stressful, especially when you don't know where to start. In a new blog and online newsletter, Custom Cupboards' official design consultant leads readers through the agony and ecstasy of home improvement.
Roger Hazard's Design Survival Guide offers tips, ideas, resources and inspiration for homeowners, homebuilders, kitchen remodelers and others who love great kitchens. Hazard will share his personal vision for creating appealing living spaces that fit a variety of needs and budgets.
Readers will learn how to add functionality and personality to their home through the Survival Guide's regular features, including:
- Design Process — A step-by-step examination of what goes in to creating a functional, beautiful space. By breaking the renovation process into manageable pieces, Roger shows the planning and execution that go into every successful remodel.
- Kitchen Inspiration Pinboard — Like a peek into Roger's workshop, this visual pinboard features his favorite emerging styles and illustrates how to pull together a cohesive look using cabinets, flooring, countertops, color, furniture, and accessories — with complete sourcing information.
- Deconstructing a Kitchen — You know a great design when you see one, but what makes a design great? In this feature, Roger will "deconstruct" a completed design to explain why it works.
- Functionality — Everyone needs more storage. Roger highlights technology, tools, and planning concepts that will maximize the function and capacity of your space.
- Education — Roger's glossary of renovation and design terminology helps bridge the communication gap between homeowners, designers, and contractors.
"When I work with clients, I want to know about their personal style and tastes because design should reflect who they are," says Hazard. "I want the newsletter to help empower homeowners, by giving them a fuller understanding of this process and inspiring them to seek out great, personal design."
Custom Cupboards president Mael Hernandez says, "Not everyone has the luxury or budget to hire a design consultant. Now you can get professional advice by subscribing to Roger's monthly newsletter and learn more about creating appealing living spaces"
