Top 4 Favorite Highlights of being a Designer


Top of the list goes to my client's reactions at first sight of their new remodel! It is so fun to go from listening to their needs & style preferences, to them seeing those words transformed into a physical space.
Second on the list is getting creative with my 3D renderings that allow my clients to see their designed space beforehand. I am a bit of a tech nerd & love creating renderings & 3D models for my clients. I realize that while designers may be able to visualize a design in their head, it is not as easy for the general public.
Third is the selection of materials. It's like letting a kid loose in a candy store! I can't wait to see everything available at my local vendors! I do research ahead of time to plan for certain styles & then take a trip down to Miramar to see if I can pick up samples in person. I'm a big advocate for seeing materials in person because photos online really aren't the best representation of actual colors.
And my 4th favorite aspect of design are the awesome Before & After photos. I just can't get enough of the WOW factor! The changes we make are like Night & Day! It's amazingggg & so fun!! :)

There’s nothing more thrilling than ripping out a wall or old cabinetry to replace it with something new and beautiful! There’s also nothing that’s more of a bummer than finding out that you’ve got termites, mold or something else going on behind your newly torn down space. Like everything in life, remodels can present problems that are nearly impossible to foresee.

Make sure you have a contingency plan in place to address these issues if they arise! Saving an additional 15 percent of the construction total is a good start for your budget. In general, it’s good to understand that while you can go into a grocery or department store and be certain that the listed price is what you’re paying, problems during the construction phase, fluctuating prices and fleeting sales can all affect the final cost of your project and materials. We just want to make sure you factor this in to your project budget. Contact us with any questions, we’re here for you!
