There is this rather common belief that a home renovation can lead to strained relations within a household, especially between the couple who commissioned the project.
It is true that renovating a home or building a new one can be stressful at times. However, as long as you have planned well, a home design or home renovation project should run fairly smoothly.
Get the services of a home designer who is talented, reliable and a great communicator and listener to boot. This is essential to make building your new home or renovating your existing a rewarding experience.
Smooth sailing is certainly what you’ll get if a home designer like our very own Martin Kolarik works on your home design and home renovation project.
Martin listens, and listens well
One primary source of conflict in home renovation projects is when the home owners and the home designer don’t see eye to eye. Home owners want things done one way way. But the home designer either partly or completely ignores the clients’ wishes. Often because he or she is the “qualified designer” after all.
Some home designers fail to realise is that a home should always be a reflection of those who own it and live in it. Home designers who do not consider input from their clients have no place in the home design and renovation business. Martin Kolarik understands this only too well.
When doing home design work for clients, Martin always makes sure to take into consideration everything that his clients want done for their home. He listens to what they have to say, then discusses with them how he’ll go about incorporating their ideas to his own vision for the project.
Ultimately, he strikes a perfect balance between what home owners want and his own artistry. Naturally, the finished product is a home that ultimately makes you happy. That is always Martin’s primary goal.
New home design in Willoughby
Brokering a marriage between a client’s wishes and his own artistic vision isn’t the only thing that Martin specializes in. He also makes sure that every single home he works on exudes nothing but a perfect marriage between function and form. Far too many home designers put a premium on form but tend to forget function along the way.
If you get Martin to do your home design, you can also expect your place to be well-ventilated, have plenty of natural light, and have clean lines all over.
Before diving into designing a home, Martin always makes sure his clients know what to expect by asking them questions. His questions would range from how many occupants the home is going to have down to the budget they have prepared for the project. Ideally, clients have to answer those questions as honestly as they can. Martin needs them for him to be able to come up with a home design that is to the satisfaction of everyone concerned.
Home renovation in Willoughby
There are so many factors to consider when doing home renovation, not least of them is following local council regulations. This is absolutely critical. After all, Willoughby council has the authority to take down any renovation work done if it does not comply with the rules. That can prove to be costly.
With Martin as your designer, this will not be a concern. Martin knows the regulations of Willoughby council like the back of his hand. Therefore, the changes he proposes for your home will have every likelihood to be approved by Willoughby council.
If you’re worried about bushfires, then Martin is your man. He is as well-versed as any other home designer on Bushfire safety regulations. He always keeps the Bushfire safety regulations in mind when performing home design and home renovation in Willoughby. Should any updates to those regulations come up, you can rest assured Martin will be on top of things. He will ensure that his work will be in keeping with those updates.
