Choosing the Right Interior Design for your Remodeling Project

Fri, Oct 2, 2015

You love your house, but it’s time for a bit of a change. Maybe you just moved into your dream home, or you could have loved it for years. Change is good, and it freshens up an area and makes it feel new and welcoming in a whole new light. Deciding on the best ways to make that change can be difficult, so working with an interior designer in San Antonio should definitely be considered. Their experience and opinions can help you make a final decision on your project, or at least give you some more ideas to consider as you start deciding where things will go.

Color and Lighting Make a Big Difference

Two of the most important things with your interior décor is the color and the lighting. Both of these elements are so simple, but often overlooked, and each one can alter the mood of the person in the room. Certain colors can make you feel relaxed and happy, or sad and depressed, so making sure you have the right one in your family room can be important. Lighting is also a key element to consider with any room in the house as it can provide both direct and indirect accents throughout the day. Direct lighting can brighten the entire room and help you save a bit on utility costs, while indirect lighting can create unique floor spots and rays of sunlight which will enhance the rooms’ details and various textures.

A Place for Everything and Everything in its Place

The placement of furniture can make or break a room. When you are working with an interior designer, they will sketch your room on a piece of graph paper with precise measurements to windows, doors and other permanent accents. Furniture will then be adjusted on the paper to see how it looks. Leaving plenty of space to travel through the room is important, while also taking into consideration any heating or cooling outlets, lighting elements, and electrical outlets. You obviously don’t want ot have your favorite reading chair and floor lamp too far away from the outlet, otherwise the lamp cable could cause a tripping hazard. These are minor adjustments which some people may overlook, but an interior designer can easily take notice of and make an educated adjustment to help everything fit together perfectly. And since it’s all on a graph paper or computer program, it’s easy for you to make adjustments if you want to try something new or simply don’t like how something is looking.

We used Shaw Company to remodel our master bathroom. Everyone we met with was very professional and helpful. Patrick helped us with the initial design phase, Brittany with the material selections, Anthony oversaw the actual construction, and Nancee checked in with us regularly to keep us informed and make sure we were pleased with everything! I really appreciated that they had a design center so I didn't feel overwhelmed with that part of the process. Additionally, Anthony did a great job of communicating with us daily through the process and making sure things were done right. It was a great experience and I enthusiastically recommend Shaw Company Remodeling!

Alain and his crew were great. Hard working through this heat outside. Very conscious about the area they were not working in to keep clean. Great job painting brick, siding and trim with different shades. Very professional in their execution of the contract. Would definitely contract them for any future work. Thanks again.

Due to broken leg/fall I am in a wheel chair for the next 4 months and required our bathroom to be remodeled in a hurry. Eric committed to complete the job at a reasonable price and a short time frame. The work was completed ahead of schedule and on budget. All employees were great and very professional. I will use Shaw again for future work on my home and have no problem recommenting the company to others.

Shaw Co. Remodeling. We just did a bath/shower remodel with Shaw and are not only pleased with the results but with the degree of communication with Shaw reps and the subcontractors. You could tell they are all very experienced, not anyone’s first rodeo. Recommended.

From our initial visit with Patrick to our design session with Brittany to our final “walk through” with Anthony, our bathroom shower project went VERY smoothly. All craftsmen were professional, doing high quality work. I would not hesitate to recommend Shaw Company Remodeling.

To the owners and management of Shaw, We wanted you all to know how pleased we are with the results of our recent bathroom tub to shower conversion. It turned out beautiful, exactly the way we had hoped. Your staff was top notch! From start to finish every person involved was professional, on time or early and friendly. In addition, we were impressed with how much care they took in keeping our home clean throughout the whole process. We realized after the job was finished that they had actually wiped down the bathroom to remove and left over dust... Nice job on hiring great help! Thank you again. Looking forward to seeing you again this week to measure and install cabinets in our laundry room and master bath!

Our kitchen remodel took 8 weeks to complete. Salvador and his crew worked hard. They were knowledgeable and professional, as well as, friendly throughout the process. I had a special request for the color of my cabinets. Salvador got it done. They are beautiful and unique. I was always able to reach Salvador at anytime and he always took care of the situation. The office staff was so helpful, especially in the selection process.. Everyone was professional, helpful and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend Shaw Remodeling, the office staff, Salvador and crew for your remodeling needs, big or small. We will definitely call them again.

Had great interactions from beginning to end of our master bathroom remodel project. Jordan and Audrey did a tremendous job helping get us started and walking us through all the details. Anthony Martinez and his crew came in and took care of the demo and remodel quickly, we’re attentive when discussing the project, and helped quickly correct any minor issues that arose. Anthony was always quick to reply to calls and texts, and he did a great job helping to make sure the project continued to move along in a timely manner. We are super happy with our remodeled master bathroom and the services provided by the folks at Shaw!

February 2018 To the Shaw Company: Let me start out by saying the GARZA project has turned out to be a smashing success!!!!! Our kitchen, floors, and wall removal was a huge project and we lived to tell about it (hard to do with two toddlers and two dogs in the house!). But it would be remise of us not to mention what a positive and professional experience we had from start to finish with your company. Mr. Paul Colavecchia helped answer the millions of questions we had and gave us HONEST estimates about the work ahead. He showed up to help us in closing on our loan and kept the lines of communication opened at all times. Ms. Brittany Shaw and Gerrilynn Mohler helped us design everything and made, what felt like an overwhelming experience, into a positive and fun process. But it is with grateful hearts that we commend the team of incredibly hard working guys that made everything possible for us: • Jorge – the amount of effort he put into cutting and laying the floors in such a large space so they came out “just perfect” was a wonder to watch! Thank you! • Marcus – from our lighting, plumbing and appliance installation -he really puts in a hard day’s work – and all with a sense of humor!!! We appreciate the long hours! Thank you! • Roy – He took ideas for my “dream cabinets” and made them a reality! They are beautiful and efficient. Whether it is conversations or quality of work – when dealing with Roy the professionalism is of the highest caliber. Thank you! Lastly, what can you say about Rusty that hasn’t been mentioned already! He treated our home like his own home and that is hard to find. It may sound cliché, but my husband and I have waited a long time to take this house and make it our home, so it truly is a dream finally realized and Rusty was the man who made it happen for us. We are truly indebted to him. In closing, we feel very blessed that we found your company, but of course, you made it easy for us to choose Shaw. Since you gave us your respect and quality workmanship, we will be sure to give you the only thing we have to offer (and the most important) our future recommendations (and possibly more work!!). Take care.

Very Respectfully, The Garza Family – James, Melissa, Dominic, & Amelia

From beginning to end the process of having our kitchen remodeled was smooth. Jordan, Brittany and Clay were great with making the vision we had for our kitchen a reality. Clay always told us what was happening and kept us in the loop. Any concerns we had were address by Clay quickly and professionally.

I have been using Shaw Company since 2002 (14 years now) when I had a partial flood in my house. Not only an excellent job at a fairly reasonable price, the workgroup foreman added a couple of preventative extras at no cost to me. Since that time, altho I have contacted other contractors for an estimate, I primarily use only Shaw Co. Eric is friendly yet polite and is meticulous about making sure I know what they will be doing and how long the job will take. He answers any questions I have whether before, during, or even after the job. His workmen are always on time, do the job as contracted, and careful to clean up their mess. I know I can trust Eric and his workmen to live up to the contract and, if necessary, beyond.

We had a wonderful master bath renovation experience. They completed the job within the time frame they quoted. Anthony was a great project manager and communicated with me every day so I would know what to expect and at what time the workers would arrive. I found him to be an excellent representative for the company. Christopher was always pleasant and listened to and addressed any concerns I might have had. He is also a wonderful company representative. Nancy was pleasant and always kept me informed. Shaw Company Remodeling is lucky to have these 3 people working for them. This was NOT one of those nightmare renovations you hear about with others who say they can do it cheaper. I would highly recommend this company and do business with them again.
