Are you looking for originality, something innovative, a unique look, or do you simply want a great home which looks great and matches the community? Architects, drafters, and home design services sometimes take off and start designing your new home without taking the time to really determine you true needs and desires. They take a look at a couple pictures you shared with them and they are off to the races.
Professional home design services go a little further. They insist on sitting down with your for thorough consultation before even doing a quote. They want to make sure they know your motivations, the neighborhood you are building in, your family makeup, and other factors which can affect the design plans. Home design is not just about esoteric beauty. It is about functional beauty. A home which does not function for the family leads to disappointment and sometimes anger.
Combining Our Dreams and Needs to Create the Perfect Home
We are all guilty of having big and wild dreams sometimes. We grab a few new home magazines, an architectural journal, and surf the internet looking at pictures. We find beautiful homes which are amazing to the eyes and senses, but sometimes we forget to take the time to think through the implications of our design choice. This is where a consultation with one of Queensland’s leading home design services which specializes in homes in the Brisbane and Sunshine Coast areas makes perfect sense.
As an example, Daryl Wood and the team at Drafting Concepts PTY LTD are almost insistent on having a thorough consultation with anyone wanting a design quote or to have construction drawings made. They want to uncover how your family lives in your home. What are the essential services? What rooms does your family gravitate towards for socializing? Little questions can lead to major changes in the way your home is designed and the room layout.
Better Designs Start with Better Questions
It is shocking how often a young family has a home designed using some off-the-shelf plans and then learn of one major problem. The master bedroom is isolated from all the other bedrooms. At first this does not sound too bad. It gives the master bedroom extra privacy. What if the young couple is buying a home to start a family? Do they really want the master bedroom and the nursery to be separated by very much distance? It is little observations like this which can make a major difference in how happy a family is in their new home. How important is matching your home to your lifestyle?
You might believe any drafting service is going to ask these questions. You might be surprised to learn that is not the case. Most house design services are focused on getting the job done fast, doing exactly what the client says, and getting paid. Drafting Concepts is highly focused on making sure their designs meet the real needs and dreams of their clients. They take the extra time to find out the answers to questions. Interestingly, these questions do not seem to slow them down at all. They get quotes done in less than 48 hours. Construction plans are delivered in less than 2 weeks. In some ways these extra questions actually speed the process. They have less questions after the drawing are made, less request for changes, and greater levels of satisfaction.
A unique home design does not always mean an innovative look. Sometimes the most unique feature is the level of happiness you feel in your new home. It all starts by working with home design services which take the time to understand your real needs and desires, before they create the plans.
