How to Work With An Architect When Designing Your Home Update


When conducting a home remodel, accurately relaying your design ideas to an architect is extremely important. Working with an architect for your home remodel is a great way to watch your construction dreams come to life, however, you must choose the right architect for the job. Here are a few helpful tips for finding success in working with an architect:


§  Before meeting with an architect, make sure to have your own design ideas written down. This will allow you to show them your vision, give them the opportunity to make suggestions and tell you whether or not your ideas are possible.

§  You must work with an architect that matches your style and that you work well with, as this individual and their team will be working in your home for an extended period of time. It is best to have an initial interview where you can determine your compatibility. It is important to realize that there is no “one size fits all” in regards to architects.

§  It is important that you trust that your architect has your best interests in mind and they also have the best design intentions. Therefore, if you believe the best way to transform the space is to update your entry door but your architect has a different vision such as revamping your patio doors, it is important to listen to their perspective as an experienced professional.

§  Most importantly, do not be timid about asking questions and for opinions. While you may initially think that a pocketing lift and slide patio door would work best in your living space, take a moment to ask for your architect’s opinion. They may have a different, more efficient vision that multi-slide patio doors might work best.
