Since I also work as a business manager for a residential remodeling firm, I help customers with their specifications. I recommend paint colors, light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, flooring, and tile. This is especially helpful when choosing items for staging. If the trim is white, I choose items that will both complement and contrast the light color. For example, if the kitchen cabinets are white, I choose a darker countertop. There are exceptions when the customer wants a monochromatic color scheme.
