When you are under a renovation, there are a plethora of decisions to be made! You don’t have the time or energy to do the shopping between resources.

Here are my three great finds and resources that I would love to share with you:

  • Plumbing: FW Webb in Dover, NH (Melanie is amazing) they will carry major brands except Kohler. Kohler is sold exclusively by Redlon & Johnson (Deb is also amazing!) If looking for high-end fixtures, I suggest Waterworks out of Boston Design Center. While we are discussing quality, I can guarantee that FW Webb and Redlon & Johnson will end up matching the pricing of Home Depot & Lowes but their quality is much higher!
  • Tile: Zenstoneworks in Portsmouth, NH is a wonderful local resource. Tile is expensive and sold by the square foot. Be sure to remember to calculate the repeat of any design, it is not a straight forward square footage calculation.
  • Paint: A&M Paint is a wonderful resource. I am a big fan of C2 and Benjamin Moore Paints. They are beautiful colors and amazing quality. Here is a mistake that people often makeā€¦. they get paint colors mixed by Sherwin Williams or Lowes but, it is not the same paint quality or color. The saturation and depth is of low quality and you will end up buying twice the amount and spending twice the amount of time painting.

Stay tuned on more local resources but feel free to send me some questions if you need hints!
