What Houzz contributors are saying:
Your budget might be tight, but I’ve seen time and time again that trying to save money on design actually can cost homeowners far more in the end, in dollars and frustration. Homeowners often underestimate the cost and complexity of a renovation or new home. The cost of the design work on a project is something that homeowners may consider skimping on to save money, but we find that the best way to avoid problems in construction is to invest time with your designer or architect upfront to think about the construction process during design. This takes far less time than fixing mistakes that happen when the walls are going up. Although it isn’t often pointed out, a good designer or architect depends on the client throughout the design and planning process as much as the client depends on the designer.
