Are you planning to renovate a space in your home this spring? Maybe your project needs to be completed by July 4th or even by Thanksgiving 2014? The question of when to start designing your project is one that people don't actually consider until it is too late. Watching renovation shows on tv can lead you to believe that in one short weekend, you can have a brand new kitchen or bathroom. The reality is projects take time on all ends to develop in both design and construction.

The designer needs time to bounce ideas off of the client, and home owners need time to consider their options, understand the design, see materials and products in person, and fully understand what their spaces will look like when the project is completed. There are also schedules to consider. It may be difficult for you to find time in your busy schedule to meet with a designer or contractor. Being rushed into a design decision because the clock is ticking can lead to regret. Take your time and ask questions of your designer, even if they seem trivial.

So, the short answer is once you've decided you are considering doing a project, contact a design professional and get the ball rolling. Have the designer measure the spaces you are planning to renovate and start drawing options for you so you can decide if your project is worthwhile. The designer will most likely come up with new ideas you haven't considered and potentially show you that your original schemes for your space may not be feasible. Winter is the perfect time to start thinking about projects you are planning to start construction on in the spring, summer or fall of the same year. Give yourself time to truly develop your project into one you will love.

Good luck and let us know how we can help you!
