“Tips Of The Trade”
From North Carolina Design Experts

Posted on August 6, 2015 |

Once again, several of our design professionals weigh in, sharing some great tips with readers for all areas of the home. With years of experience creating living spaces that speak to who their cleints are and how they live, these experts from North Carolina Design are definitely qualified to offer insightful “Tips Of The Trade” on a variety of subjects.

When considering building a new home or renovating your existing home, make sure to allow plenty of time for design before beginning the construction process. Proper planning is the key to any successful project. When you consider that building or renovating a home is one of the largest financial commitments most of us make, combined with the fact that your home is your most personal and important space, it simply makes sense to consider those decisions thoughtfully. That takes time, and often some soul searching, to reach that perfect balance of aesthetics and practicality.”

Balancing a client’s wish list with their budget is one of the most difficult parts of the job for an architect or an interior designer. Understanding how to evaluate and prioritize the wish list and how to creatively capture the most important design aspects to fit within the budget is a skill that seasoned design professionals bring to a project. Making the most of this skill is a wise move on the part of anyone considering a design project.” —Amy Conner-Murphy, Principal and Founder, ACM Design
