Do it now!

Just a gentle reminder that if you want a new look by the holidays you need to be putting in your orders now. Most furniture takes 8-12 weeks to arrive after ordering and we are at 10 weeks today! It’s hard to believe when the thermometer is supposed to hit 90 degrees here in Colorado tomorrow, but we are just a few weeks away from cold, snow, and hot cocoa.
The same timelines apply to little improvement projects like new countertops, tile, new carpet and paint. You’ll need to select and order these materials in next two weeks to have a chance at having them installed by the end of November. New counters are typically a 4-6 week process. If you are thinking new cabinets too, that is usually a 4-12 week process depending how quickly you can decide on what style you want. Cabinets can take anywhere from 4-10 weeks after ordering to arrive. (Many are manufactured on the East Coast in places like North Carolina.)
Not to worry if you don’t make your orders on time. Try changing your paint color or adding some colorful accents and accessories. That can usually be done within a week. Don’t be afraid to call if you need help.
