How big? How extensive? How much? Answering these overarching questions can help you decide whether or not you need a pro for your home’s interior makeover. Here, we guide your preplanning, so the process is as easy breezy as possible.

Make a Short List. Ask friends for recommendations of tradespeople they’ve used. Also, search online for reviews and recommendations for local businesses.
