We’ve all been there!
You’re watching T.V., and that new home decorating show comes on. It’s amazing what these everyday people can accomplish on a small budget! In fact, it’s downright inspiring!
You start looking around the room, and you realize it needs some serious sprucing up, and you are just the person to do it! No fancy contractors for you! Just some good ol’ ingenuity and elbow grease!
HOLD THAT THOUGHT!
Before you head to the hardware stores, pawn shops, and hottest dumpster dive locations, let’s take a moment to think about all the ‘reality’ that this ‘reality’ renovation show it portraying.
Sure, it looks inexpensive and easy. The homeowners get discount paint, used furniture, and even made that amazing crafty chandelier for $29. Not to mention they accomplished it all in a weekend!
These shows run for one reason: to make money!
They take everyday people and put them under extraordinary circumstances to ensure a profitable job well done.
First, the producers get a killer deal on the majority of the products (sometimes free) for the publicity. Next, what seems like a short amount of time squished into an episode is actually days of non-stop grueling hours that drag on. Finally, those people are surrounded by experts every step of the way! Professional electricians, painters, restorators, designers, and more. When the show’s editors plug that shockingly low price into the bottom of your screen, they are counting for any of those professional’s wages.
Does this mean you can’t do it? Absolutely not!
With the right materials, enough time, and lots of practice, you could make your home beautiful all on your own, but for now, you might save yourself a headache, and hire a contractor for your big projects.
You can even get their expert advice for when you take on your next DIY project!
You don’t simply want to hire a contractor because we tell you, so I bet you’re wondering WHY you should hire a contractor.
The Repaint Specialists makes a pretty good point for why hiring a professional painting contractor might be in your best interests, so keep reading!
