Legal Eagle Contractors, Co. invites you to ENJOY YOUR IDEA CENTER EXPERIENCE
Our concept: See sample ideas and products installed in a real house… ‘could be your house’!
Obviously we don’t have every tile color, paint chip and remodeling product in here. That’s not the point. This is not a “showroom” – we have great vendor-partners for that. It is a place to explore new concepts and imagine what might work in the spaces you call home. It is a place to see our creative juices at work. We have installed “embedded” universal design and “aging-in-place” design ideas wherever possible. These enable you to see and compare ideas. See if you can spot them!
Maybe you can pick your bath light fixture on the internet, but a skylight? No way! What does it really look like installed? Will it be hot? How much natural light will it bring in? Is the bang worth the bucks? Do I like it?
Seeing is believing, and this is a place to see ideas, play with the cool stuff and see what they might be like in your house!
When you see this symbol: → it means “Try It!”
