My interest is keeping your budget in mind and not developing a expectations or not financially feasible. 9. I am afraid to hire a designer because I do not want them to impose their style. An important part of being a designer is listening and appreciating your personal dream space with our design skills. Now, that said… there are some things that are space should be pleasing, comfortable, and functional. If you really have your heart that makes the ultimate decision. On the other hand, if I find that a homeowner is aspect of the design, it may be time to discuss whether we are a good fit. 10. Why do you charge for the initial consultation? Many designers offer a free initial consultation. This is a “meet and greet” where the and listen to yours. This meeting is not a design service. I would rather not come sales pitch.

  8. 8. THE DESIGN PROGRAM PROGRAMMING Programming begins with the first visit to your home, where I gather information and develop a plan for your project. Photographs and measurements are taken. We will talk a bit and create a wish list and approximate budget for your project. Then, we will talk about your availability and ideal project time line. This information is used to create a design program, which includes a time estimate, and a summary of the project goals waldron designs | www.waldrondesigns.com
  9. 9. CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT IDEA GENERATION We may have already shared a Pinterest board, a Houzz board, or images from magazines/books. These images combined with the home’s architecture and your personality will guide me in developing ideas, concepts for your space. We’ll look at potential layouts for your space and share ideas to further develop these ideas.

  10. 10. DESIGN DEVELOPMENT MAKING IT A REALITY Once we’ve established the design style and are sure that we are on the same page, we begin looking at actual products, finishes, and fixtures. We begin fitting the dream into the needs of reality and making the design suit you and your needs. Floor plans, elevations, and 3D drawings are provided to confirm that we have properly developed your design. waldron designs | www.waldrondesigns.com
  11. 11. CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS DETAILS, DETAILS With everything confirmed, it is time to make sure the contractor understands the vision. Construction documents may not always be the most legible without a trained eye- but they convey those little details that we’ve discussed in the design process. Product specifications further enhance this detail by noting the materials, finishes, and fixtures selected and their placement. waldron designs | www.waldrondesigns.com
  12. 12. INSTALLATION COMMUNICATION Project observation is more about communication than it is “babysitting” the contractor. They know how to build things- I know how these things should look completed. Sometimes more than a picture is needed. It is so important to have consistency from the beginning to the end of the project and that is our job- to be your consistency! We communicate the details that you have shared with us and the reasons for design decisions that help the contractor understand why certain details are absolute musts where others may be more flexible. waldron designs | www.waldrondesigns.com
  13. 13. PROJECT COMPLETION HONEY-DO LIST It’s finished!! Almost. Many projects reach a completion state that is ready for a“punch list”. This is the point where we come in, note any items remaining for the contractor, and celebrate the finished product!
