The other day my mom reminded me of an old Finnish proverb that goes like this:
When a job is done right, no one asks how long it took, everyone simply says “It’s beautiful”.
A client recently called me in a panic, her subway tile backsplash was being installed and the advice she had received on the layout was clearly wrong and she already knew she would hate it after it was completed. The installer had just left and would be back the next day to apply the grout.
My advice to her was to take it out immediately and before the mortar dried. This way the tile could be saved and it would be easier to simply re-install correctly the next day.
So if you are in the middle of a renovation and you can still stop something from going sideways! Take my advice and do it!
The difference between “It’s fine” and ‘Wow that’s beautiful” might be less than you think!
What happened in your renovation that you’d change in hindsight?
