If you are planning or even thinking about a remodel in your home think about how crucial design is to maximize your investment. Design is critical to all types of remodeling, whether it is a kitchen, bathroom, or basement; not just bigger remodels like additions or new construction.
To start, I am going to focus on a design perspective and different types of design drawing, cost and what you can expect.
It can be difficult to accommodate all of the clients’ expectations up front, especially before a design has been completed. I say this because most people want a quote or a free estimate to do a remodel before they have a completed design. This is a big topic, that Trent puts in his blogs…it is nearly impossible to know what a major remodel is going to cost without a design and a drawing!
First of all, as a passionate interior designer with many years of experience, I do work for the love of design, not just a paycheck. That being said, I cannot and will not work for free, not even for my own family. This is because, design is very complex and time consuming.
Moving on to the reason you should invest in design for your remodel. You need to see what you are getting for your remodel.
