Most people who wish to renovate their home will contact a local builder as their first step. Asking the builder for their design ideas seems like a logical step but in fact may really limit your opportunities had you started the journey differently.
Not all builders are designers but nevertheless some may seem very keen to provide design advice and will influence your project whether you engage that particular builder or not.
Builders’ design opinions may often result in missed opportunities or under utilising the potential of your home, losing the chance for the wow factor or being delighted with elements that may have been capitalised on by an architect or draftsperson.
The reality is that a professional design and specification will make the difference between a home that works and one that is clunky. Good designs make a home functional, convenient, fun and enjoyable to live in. A poor design may cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars when the time comes to sell. It will also impact the liveability, functionality and enjoyment of your home. A good design will save you money by creating efficiency with space, ongoing maintenance and running costs of your home.
Therefore, recognising a builder like Kinool Construction who works well with architects / draftspeople and recognises their talent in designing, whilst acknowledging their own expertise in building and construction makes your experience more enjoyable.
