A great outcome starts with a great design
A great San Jose bathroom remodel starts with a great design.
A great design starts with great ideas.
A great designer knows how to translate home owner ideas and desires into a tangible plan that can be turned into:
- A permit ready set of drawings
- A bill of materials
Where words mean different things to different people
The challenge is in the homeowner and the designer coming to a common understanding of the meaning of various abstract terms. Homeowners often desire the following as part of the outcome of their remodel project:
- A retreat
And these terms are sufficiently abstract they may mean different things to different people. By which I mean they may invoke different images and ideas in the minds of different people.
The simplest solution
The simplest solution to this issue is for the designer to simply ask the homeowners a series of (somewhat repetitive) questions in the form of:
- What does the word “tranquil” mean to you?
- What are examples of environments you find to be “tranquil”.
This allows the designer to get inside the head of the home owner to understand details of what images those words evoke in their mind.
Although this is a very simple technique, it’s surprisingly effective at quickly getting the designer to a common understand with the homeowner as to what those terms mean.
