ARE YOU OPEN TO CHANGE?
TWO CENTS FOR FREE:
Just a few questions I ask clients before attacking a big project, like removing walls and rooms to create one, giant space:
1.) How do you use the room now, and how will you use it in five years?
2.) If you go to sell your home, will a potential buyer appreciate your vision and buy into it? In other words, if you're in a hundred year old farmhouse and want to remove the walls to create a more modern feel, will the next person think you ruined the home?
3.) Do you have friends with a similar design? If so, ask them what they like and hate about it. Better yet, invite yourself over and check it out...do they love when the sofa smells like garlic for a month after cooking? Are the heating bills higher because some of the insulating parts of the house have been removed?
