How does a conceptual design help me with my renovation if my layout is different than the one shown?
Designers use mood boards, along with conceptual design renderings as a tool to help you see what your finishes will look like in a space when it’s built. It doesn’t matter if the conceptual rendering doesn’t reflect your exact layout. We’ve shown a standard layout that gives you a clear vision of most of the items featured within the corresponding Spec book.
What is a Reno Bible Spec and why do I need one?
When renovating, there are typically 2 types of documents that are used together by your contractor in order to build your project in the most effective way possible. You need floor plans & a renovation spec. The floor plan shows the contractor the general layout of the space, whereas the spec advises your contractor on everything that is going into the space, where to buy those items, and how to install them.
What is the difference between Economical, Mid-Priced and High-End?
We have chosen finishes that fall within a certain price range for each price point. For example, the tiles we’ve specified for the Economical designs cost between $1/sf – $5/sf. The tiles we’ve specified for the Mid-Priced designs cost between $6/sf-$10/sf. And the tiles we’ve specified for the High-End designs cost more than $10/sf. It’s difficult for us to give a price range for the build of your projects because we don’t know the size of the rooms that you are building.
Will my Reno Bible Spec provide me with floor plans or layouts for my renovation?
Reno Bible does not provide you with layouts for your renovation, but we do provide you with layout suggestions to help you figure out how best to layout your space. It’s a handy tool even if we don’t have your exact dimensions.
What if I like more than one Reno Bible Design? Is there a way to customize my Reno Bible spec to suit me perfectly?
Yes! Your Reno Bible Spec is designed to easily have pages swapped out with other Reno Bible Specs. Feel free to swap out pages from one spec with another spec for a truly unique design, or choose a few items on your own. We’ve provided you with all the websites so that you can easily shop for other items if you choose to.
How do I know where to buy the items in my Reno Bible Spec?
We’ve done our best to list stores in your area or online stores that sell the items we’re recommending in your Reno Bible spec. Most of the items we’ve specified are widely available across the globe. If you don’t see a store listed for a particular item, we’ve provided you with the contact information of the manufacturer, who can then provide you with a list of stores in your area.

Does my Reno Bible Spec recommend any furniture or decor items?
Your Reno Bible Spec only offers information pertaining to your renovation, and does not offer furniture or decor specifications.
What is the quality of the products that you're recommending?
We do our best to recommend high quality items, even if you are purchasing a spec that falls within the economical category. There are cheaper products out there than the ones we are suggesting, but we advise you stay away from the cheapest products as they will inevitably wind up costing you more money and headaches in the long run when you need to replace them shortly after installing them.
Is Reno Bible affiliated with any brand or vendor?
Absolutely not! We are always on the lookout for new products and only recommend items/vendors that are known for their service & quality. We do not make any money (or anything else for that matter) on the items that are featured within our Reno Bible Spec Books.
