Late changes, at one time, was the leading cause of concern for clients moving through the design process. Now thanks to the advances in innovation and technology we are able to take a lot of clients fear out of the equation with 3D software. Here’s how the industry has improved the confidence of our Design clients.
1.) Renderings add Visual Value-
From traffic patterns, to colors and finishes, a rendering can answer many material and placement questions similar to labor intensive hand drawings of the past. I feel fortunate to have learned both types of artistry in my Fine Arts training. It’s given me an intense appreciation for original sets of drawings are created.
The convenience of CAD is one reason so many companies invest it’s software. Clients who are concerned about changes, once they see the drawings, are able to reimage their spaces true potential. With out these important renderings it can be difficult to imagine how a room will tie together. Which is why we utilize them.
2.) Why we advise against late changes-
When it comes to feeling unsettled, there’s typically uneasiness surrounding a decision. Late changes are simply the result of a clients unanswered questions. Second guessing unfortunately creates an undesired domino effect. A better way to handle this insecurity is with your Follow Up Appointment. This uncertainty is resolved as your Designer shows and explains how each piece fits. Moving forward, each item is selected to compliment your homes story. If you’re upfront about your lifestyle and priorities it’s much less likely that late changes become an issue down the road.
3.) The downside of late changes- Fees
Going outside the initial parameters, results in a less positive outcome. Re-stocking fees are one consequence. Billings occur to cover the design staffs time factor. These are fees that could be avoided.
Keep in mind- When items are out-of-stock or on back order, the change order should go through your Designer. These are late changes that are non-fee based decisions. Your designer is trained to manage your project in high detail. We can also visualize the end result and select the next best option.
4.) The other side of the coin- Early Purchases
Because of our years of experience in the field, we can usually tell how a project will unfold based on how much a client purchases prior to the consultation. We’ll discuss this further at your Initial Consultation.
