Economic Times Demand Great Design

During these economic times when every dollar counts, great design is more important than ever. It is an amazing time to build or remodel due to great interest rates, lower prices and with the most experienced professionals prominent in the industry. A close friend keeps quoting the title of one of her favorite books, "Good is the enemy of Great", this is something we should all take to heart. You do not need to settle with good design, it needs to be GREAT! Great design is not only a beautiful home, but one that is well thought out. Your home needs to function for your lifestyle, no more, no less space than you need, it should be the right space. In a meeting last month the client wanted to add to a room on the back of their home, when I asked the purpose for this additional space they were not quite sure. After pursuing it with them, we found they did not need a larger room but could make the space more functional by simply relocating a door opening. This solution provided them a Great space within their current footprint while saving cost at the same time. This is one example on how adding does not always resolve an issue and how GREAT Design can not only create a wonderful space but can save money!
