We are incredibly excited about our showroom remodel for several reasons. First, it gives us a chance to offer a world-class experience to our customers. In our new showroom, customers will be able to enjoy a one-stop-shop. During your shopping and design experience, we hope to provide you with ease of mind. Our new showroom will help ensure a smooth transition between design projects. You will not have to worry about miscommunication and delays with different contractors because it will all be serviced by our team. The second reason we are excited about the showroom remodel is that we are eager to experience the design process ourselves. While we are all homeowners, it is exciting to come together as a team and unite with one project in mind: the new showroom.
While designing our showroom, we faced design challenges that would be no different from the ones you would meet in your own project. In fact, we wanted to use those experiences to help guide you on your next redesign. That is why we created four tips for mastering a design project. Whether it be a remodel, renovation, redesign, or a project where you are starting from scratch, these tips are sure to come in handy with your next project.
Have a Plan, but Try to Be Flexible
Whenever you begin any type of home project, it is essential to have a plan set in place. With our redesign, we had to work around our installer’s regular work hours. Similarly, ICC Home’s installers will work around your schedule to provide you with the best service. That being said, during a project, we always encourage flexibility. We do not expect anything to happen, but in case an unforeseen circumstance arises, it is important to have a little wiggle room with the project’s timeline.
Understand Your Wants & Needs
During our remodel, we had to select products that would be set up in our mini “room scenes.” To do so, we needed to understand the different styles and features associated with each product. Additionally, we had to decide which manufacturers to showcase. Similarly, you will need to understand your lifestyle and your family’s wants and needs. For example, if you are designing an active space, you may opt for a more durable flooring or countertop choice. It is important to understand your home’s lifestyle before making a decision. If you are unfamiliar with products that align well with your family’s needs, no need to worry! Our expert sales associates will help guide you to the perfect selections for your home.
Let Your Space Inspire You
Everyone’s space is entirely different. You will want to hone in on your house’s key characteristics and optimize its architecture during the design. For example, we have a large showroom, and we wanted to showcase several room scenes. During the remodel, we had to work around our space and see what the best layout would be for our project. Similarly, you can use your house as inspiration. Try to balance the design to highlight your home’s architecture while not overbearing the space. It is an art, but it is easier to do, and do not worry; we are here to help!
Sample Your Paint
As paint experts, we understand how different a paint color can look in your own home. That is why we recommend taking a sample home and trying it out on different areas of the wall. You ideally want to look at the sample in different lighting and different times of the day. After, you will be able to determine the best paint option for your home.
In conclusion, you are not alone. Our team of experts is happy to help with any questions you might have because we have been there ourselves. Please do not hesitate to visit one of our showrooms to learn more about the product line. We are open during the remodel. Plus, stay tuned for our special announcement in June!
