When designing your kitchen, bath, or any other living space, you should first consider the problems you want to solve. In this video, Peter Feinmann speaks about the real reasons clients remodel their homes and the elements they need to discuss during the planning stage.
Many clients approach the design stage of their remodeling project backward. They look at websites such as Houzz and Pinterest to collect ideas and then decide what they want to change instead of looking at how they use their space and why it is not fulfilling their needs.
Planning your home remodel is not about what you imagine doing to your home, but the problem you want to solve.
At Feinmann, we purposely shift our client conversations towards the reasons for renovating their home and how we can best help them create a space that meets their needs and the way they live. By focusing on the issues a client wants to solve, we learn a lot about their dislikes with their home and the challenges they have living in it.
Here are some reasons for renovating your home:
- Not enough space for gathering.
- Not enough seating or no seating at all.
- Cabinets are outdated or falling apart.
- There is not enough storage in the kitchen.
- The room is too dark and lacks natural light.
