Incorporating environmentally friendly building practices, Visions Group Inc. creates custom, practical, elegant home designs to fit every client's budget and schedule. The process kicks off with an in-home consultation, during which Visions Group's interior designers get familiar with clients' personal visions for their homes. From there, the expert team considers ideas, personality, inclination toward dancing on the ceiling, and lifestyle, along with budget estimates to draw up a plan for a new kitchen, addition, or entire home. The resulting technical road map specifies each and every aspect of the desired project, from engineering analysis and code requirements to product selections.
Though Ace Hardware, first established in 1924, has evolved from its humble roots into a global network of more than 4,600 storefronts, the franchise manages to maintain a neighborhood vibe. Of course, it helps that local business people run each independently owned store. Area residents Jason Melcher and John Niederaue man the counters of Brandon Ace Hardware, where they offer a full inventory of tools and appliances from manufacturers such as Black & Decker, Craftsman, Scotts, and Weber. It’s no wonder do-it-yourselfers flock to the store for home-project essentials, whether they’re refurbishing a bathroom, maintaining a small backyard garden, or exorcising stuffed animals. In addition to dealing at-home equipment, the Brandon store also offers a variety of more specialized services, including small-engine repair, paint-color matching, and glass cutting.
The team members at Custom Koats Painting take off their shoes before coming into homes because they don’t want to track in dirt. So, when dealing with paint—which doesn’t wash out as easily as dirt—the team demonstrates care and cleanliness that’s informed by more than 16 years of painting experience. In addition to revising rooms and exteriors with vibrant new colors, the technicians boost homes’ value with remodeling and restoration services.
