Hopeful and Optimistic


Just as flowers come forth from the earth, grow, and unfurl in the bright sunshine of spring, the news of falling case numbers, increased vaccines, and more has us hopeful and optimistic. Yes, we are indeed hopeful and optimistic about the end of the pandemic later this year and we are looking forward to that great day Unfortunately, there is still some time before that where we must keep up our vigilance and due diligence to help slow the spread of the virus and end the pandemic. To that end, we here at OVOLO are continuing to follow local, state, and federal guidance and taking our safety protocols seriously so that we can ensure the safety, health, and well-being of our company, clients, and community at large. From paint color selections, to choosing new furniture, to room designs, to kitchen and bathroom remodels, we're here and ready to help you on any of your design related projects.

We are continuing to meet virtually whenever possible. However, we know that it is not possible to do everything virtually so we are meeting clients in person for any design related activity when needed while following those guidelines and safety protocols. Here are a few highlights: we continue to wear masks and require those around us to do the same, we use wash our hands and use hand sanitizer before and after every meeting, we disinfect all items used at a meeting (like pens, tape measures, and more) both before and after meetings, and we maintain a meeting log to be used for contact tracing in a worst-case scenario (which will be shredded after the log is no longer needed).

Through it all, we continue to help cost-conscious homeowners and renters who would like a personalized design that speaks to them; we help our clients go from being unsure about starting and implementing a project to having a well-executed design that is custom-tailored to specific goals, objectives, and style in just 7 easy design stages. If you'd like to know more about how we can help with your specific design project, please contact us.

Here are a few space planning principles to keep in mind for the kitchen: Kitchens should have an efficient work triangle and optimal (and ideally non-overlappin
