Check out the National Association of the Remodling Industry (NARI). It is a not-for-profit trade association committed exclusively to the professional remodeling industry and to homeowners. This is a good source to use for finding a contractor!

– types of lighting
– blending the design of a new living space into existing living space
– current and future storage needs
– universal features to accomodate the needs of a broader range of people.
