Probably one of my most favorite projects (I always say that). I love it when someone has a lessor expectation than the actual final delivery. The best part of any project I do for someone else is the expressions, both verbally and physically, that resonate from the owners. These people had existing built-ins in an adjacent room and seemed to be under the impression that adding built-ins in the parlor was limited in appearance to what they had in the other room. Not the case. As we sat down to look at the design and material samples, their whole impression changed. Mine did, too.
With every project that I take on, new ideas come to light and it never ceases to amaze me how even the smallest changes can make the biggest impacts. Every inch matters; proportion, function, access, aesthetics must all blend to create a fabulous project. If it doesn’t look good “on paper”, it is most likely not going to look good on the wall, either.
Tip of the Day: Build it on paper first; don’t just wing it. Believe in your tape measure.
-- No matter how many factors go into thinking about a project, there is always one important new discovery to be made.
