What Houzz contributors are saying:
Handling a conflict with a client when it does occurIf you’ve communicated throughout the project and documented all the client’s decisions, there should be little opportunity for conflict. But occasionally disagreements can’t be avoided. And in those cases, you have to keep in mind what matters most to you: being right or keeping your client happy.“There is a cost of doing business,” says Clendenon. “If you know that they signed off on the yellow knob and all of a sudden they want the red knob, you just get the red knob.”Also, differences of opinion about a project’s direction might occur with a client you’ve already agreed to work with. “I come back to ‘the client is always right,’” says Jimmy Crisp of Crisp Architects in New York, USA. “Unless it’s something that is going against code or could be dangerous, I tell clients … ‘If you want a purple tower connected to your house, I will do the best purple tower that can be done.’“I will say, ‘I don’t think it goes with the architecture’ or ‘It’s not a good colour for the neighbourhood,’ but it is their house.”
