Most of us are familiar with the old African adage, “It takes a village to raise a child.” The general idea is that other people in the community (outsideof the immediate family) help to shape a child’s character.
There’s a similar phenomenon in home remodeling. It may not be as catchy, but it’s true: it takes a team to remodel a home. And what’s great for Naples-area homeowners planning a remodeling project is that they can take advantage of the knowledge, expertise and experience of various members of the remodeling team.
That’s particularly true when you’re dealing with a design/build remodeling company. With a design/build firm, you’re able to rely on the experience of both designers (who bring their hands-on, make-it-happen skills to the table and whose strengths lie in concepts, space and décor) and craftsmen (who turn those plans and ideas into reality).
Here’s where you can really make the most of the knowledge of the whole remodeler team. You can sit down to consult with the interior design team and tell them exactly what you want. With them, you can create a plan to achieve your goals. But then the designers can talk to the builders who will bring your vision to life, getting immediate feedback about the plan. If there’s a problem, it will surface right away. Or the builders on the team may come up with an even better solution—based on their years of experience. It’s sort of like getting the best of theory and practical knowledge rolled into one.
Naturally, one of the best ways to take advantage of your design staff’s knowledge is to ask lots of questions and to let the staff ask you plenty of questions as well about what you want, what you like and what your goals are for the project. Then your designers can show you options (from their experience with other clients) that you might not have considered. Our designers draw from more than 30 years of design experience to help you achieve exactly what you want with your remodeling project. It’s a great resource they are eager to share with you, so make sure you take advantage!
