Having ideas for your dream home is one thing, but conveying them to your architectural designer is definitely another. Here are the best ways to communicate with your architectural designer:
Arrange A Site Visit
First things first, you want your architectural designers to see your home in person, so that they can see what the space is like, and also to see what your style preferences are like. Measurements will also be taken, so that the architectural designer can accurately map out what needs to be done.
Lists And Images
The more information you write down for your architectural designer, the better. Writing down lists and elaborating where possible are incredibly helpful to facilitating the understanding of your architectural designer. Where possible, try and get as many images saved as well – these could be anything from materials, textures to fittings.
Reveal Your Tastes
Letting your architectural designer know about your preferred taste in art, fashion and style will go a long way to helping them know what will work best for you. If you already have clear preferences in traditional décor and design for example, then it would be wise to let your architectural designer know from the offset, so as to avoid any them suggesting any contemporary ideas for your project.
Functionality is key when coming up with concepts for your property. If you have children, then you may want to consider going for an open-plan layout so you can keep an eye on them at all times. If you work from home, then you may want a study or home office created which allows you to work or study in solitude.
