good craftsmanship, architect on demand, advice without strings

Whether you are building from scratch or remodeling, good craftsmanship makes a world of difference. Especially if you lean toward minimal aesthetic, like me. I recently had to fire a construction worker who just did not put his heart into what he was doing. He was rushing too much, making one mistake after another. The result was unacceptable.

It got me thinking: detail make the project sing.

Below, consider 6 reasons why good craftsmanship matters:

good craftsmanship

#1: Good craftsmanship adds a level of refinement.

Good craftsmanship allows you to enjoy unobtrusive elegance of clean lines. You are stripping down and paring back to the essentials. It is not necessary to cover mistakes and sloppy work with moldings. Less is more. Understated simplicity catches the eye and makes a bold statement without being loud.

#2: Good craftsmanship gives you a result that is more thoughtful.

Each connection is carefully executed. Take thresholds. They occur at various places throughout your home and are most apparent when one type of flooring material changes to another. Making tile transition into wood, for example, as smoothly as possible is desirable. Skill and care are the insurance.

#3: Good craftsmanship is long-lasting.

Things that are built well, age well. They’re made to last, to withstand daily use, and to look better as a result.

#4: Good craftsmanship celebrates beauty and character.

A layered, thoughtful mix of materials and textures gives your space a sense of honed refinement.

#5: Good craftsmanship makes any space shine.

Simplicity, accentuated by fine craftsmanship, exudes sophistication and luxury. Subtleties influence our perception. A well-edited, expertly curated space feels wonderful to be in.

#6: Good craftsmanship does not go out of style.

Opting for a timeless effect — expert construction, synonymous with good craftsmanship, is key. The quality comes from creating with care and passion.

    Very descriptive and concise tour into the world that often is not accessible to the naked eye of an amateur. Alla does it with elegance in simplicity of her explanations of the various details of design, supporting it with carefully handpicked photographs which nicely illustrate the main concept of the blog. Good job!
