Before I meet with my designer:
Be prepared to provide the designer with as much information as you can.
By providing the designer with as much information about your project as you can, you will be presenting a clear picture to them about what you are looking for. Sometimes it's also helpful to clip out pictures of what you like from books or magazines to show the designer.
Assess what you 'Need' versus what you 'Want'.
The second step in creating a rewarding plan with your design professional is to develop a "need" and a "want" list. The "need" list should include features that you consider essential to your room. The "want" list should be comprised of features that you would like to have, if your budget permits, in your room.
Easy as it sounds, distinguishing your "need" items from your "want" items can be difficult. It may help to have each member of your family make individual lists. Just listing your needs and wants will help you focus on the features that are most important to you and your family. Take some time to identify your needs and wants with our remodeling questionnaire.
Have this form ready when you meet with our designer to better help you plan your dream room:
Identify Your Budget.
Before you begin working on your new room, you should tell your designer what your budget for the project is. Keeping your designer informed will help them to make better decisions about the design of your room and the products that you should use to meet your needs.
