If you’re professionally remodeling your kitchen or bathroom, you will be working closely with a designer. Your relationship with your designer can directly impact the success of the project. Here are some tips for working with your designer to get the most out of your remodel.
1. Be sure they’re qualified.
Ask your designer how they are qualified for your project and ask to see examples of their past work. Knowing they’re well qualified will help you to feel confident and excited about the project rather than worried and anxious.
2. Be prepared.
Before you meet with your designer, do some research to get a general idea of the look, feel, fixtures, and appliances you’re interested in for your new space. This will help your designer get a feel for your taste and interests and give them a good starting point. Browse decorating websites and magazines for ideas and inspiration.
3. Be specific.
Tell your designer all about how your existing space does and doesn’t meet your needs. Outline the positives as well as the negatives so your designer understands what is and isn’t working for you. The more honest and specific you are, the more your designer will be able to make your new space accommodate your needs.
4. Be flexible.
There may be items on your wish list that won’t work for any number of reasons, whether it be availability, cost, compatibility, or something else. As the design process moves along, you may end up having to make adjustments to your original ideas. If you’re prepared for this possibility, you won’t be surprised if it comes up.
