Need a little design inspiration? Each month Neil Kelly hosts workshops that provide an introduction to remodeling specific areas in the home, design styles and trends with the latest materials, fixtures and appliances, before and after case studies and a Q&A with design experts and partners.
“It’s important for homeowners to speak with the experts, even the do-it-yourself-types,” says Randi Reed, senior design consultant with Neil Kelly. “We want to make sure your project is well thought out, organized and done safely. Because let’s face it, many ‘weekend projects’ take up to a month to complete. And Neil Kelly is here when you need an expert.”
Reed hosted her first workshop — that featured a display of a 1950s kitchen at the Oregon Historical Society — 25 years ago. She says the informal but educational classes are especially popular with new homeowners. The most popular workshops include kitchen and bathroom remodels, and aging in place seminars.
“Kitchens and baths are always areas people think they can tackle themselves,” says Reed. “The workshops give homeowners inspiration.”
In the classes attendees discover the elements of design, view before and after photos and floor plans, learn how to personalize their space, and speak directly with Neil Kelly partner vendors like Kohler.
“We love the meet-and-greet with homeowners afterwards,” says Reed. “We encourage everyone to ask questions. It’s a great time for us to learn more about their upcoming project or design inspiration.”
The workshops also offer an introduction to the Neil Kelly design/build remodeling process, and demonstrate value of hiring a team of experienced professionals to do a major construction project.
“We really enjoy hosting the workshops and sharing knowledge with homeowners,” says Reed. “It’s a fun thing to do on a Saturday.”
