Home projects can certainly be daunting. Where to start? Who to hire? What fixtures to choose? Taking pride in one’s home comes in many different forms, from something as small as a lamp to as involved as a full-kitchen remodel, and at the end of the day, home design is about as personal as it gets. After all, your home is where you regroup and recharge, store your possessions, and raise your family. Crafting the perfect space to do all of that doesn’t have to be as scary as it might initially seem—especially with so many consummate professionals gracing the Cape’s sandy shores.
In these pages, we’ve crafted the essential A to Z guide for your home. You’ll find advice from local professionals as well as distinguished projects to spur inspiration for your own home remodel undertakings, and even if those projects don’t exactly line up with your own plans—for example, maybe your “X-tra space” project is going to be a closet rather than a wet bar—you’ll surely find ideas and tricks to help you brainstorm. From A to Z and everything in between, this is the handbook for your perfect Cape Cod home. All that’s missing is you and your own personal style.
