Best DIY Advice

Kristen’s best DIY advice is to take your time when embarking on a renovation. After moving into a new home, it may be tempting to jump into a home renovation project, but Kristen recommends living in the space for a while to truly understand how your family utilizes each room and what changes would be most helpful. She’ll often take a year or more before deciding on a final design for a renovation. For instance, Kristen lived with a ’70s-style bar in her entryway for 2 years before tackling this mudroom renovation, and now the result is exactly what was needed to keep her household running smoothly.
