Architectural Plan Review
As interior designers, we look at space differently than architects and builders do. While they may focus on the elevation view from the street or how the sun traverses across the house, we look at how each nook and cranny will finish on the inside.
Specialty windows, for example, can be really tricky to cover on the inside. We'll go over the functionality of each room and where the sun exposure is and how much wall is available for a window treatment. The last thing we want to do is cover up arched or butted style windows, so maybe we’ll decide not to put those types of windows in rooms that you wish to achieve darkness in.
On occasion, the architect or builder will show an idea that is unique and creative and lacks some key functionality. How is the path from the car in the garage to the kitchen with and armful of groceries? How far do you have to lug your laundry? Do you do your own laundry? How does the dog get in and out of the house and where do her dishes live? So many things to consider!
We cut through the clouds and think of these things during the final design stage. We operate on the philosophy that your environment should really compliment your lifestyle first and then when we’ve achieved the optimal layout, we can decorate it with the most amazing finishes and furniture to suit your taste.
