Stage 3: Design
At Gracia Makeovers, we specialize in renovations big and small. No job is too big for our professional design team. Our designers will discuss at length with you how the design will match the style you are looking for and the purpose of the space will also be discussed. We want your space to function as well as it looks and will consult with you to ensure your vision and our planning coincides.
The first step in the process is for Gracia Makeovers to understand exactly what you want to achieve in your home and why you are considering a renovation. Gracia Makeovers has a thorough and professional briefing process that we take all our customers through. Our approach is to listen carefully to your requirements and to ask questions and ensure we understand exactly what you are looking for, what is important to you and make your dreams come true.
The next step is to translate your requirements into an architectural concept.
As a design and build renovation specialist, Gracia Makeovers’s role is to work with you to design and deliver the best renovation that you can achieve for the amount you wish to spend. In the design and building process, your budget is just as important as your desired renovation outcomes. Therefore, it is crucial early on for a clear ‘base budget’ to be established. Your budget may change during the design process as you make decisions on what you approve and disapprove of.
Traditional architectural line drawings are hard to visualize so Gracia Makeovers provides high definition pictorial concepts so you can see exactly what will be built. If it’s not what you imagined, this is the time to make changes. It’s far more cost-effective to get the concept first to avoid changes during the construction phase.
Even for small projects like bathroom remodelling, this exercise is valuable. Will the new taps, showers, basins etc. leave the right clearances for doors and moving about? Will the floor tiles line up with and match the wall tiles? Will the shower have to be repositioned to meet the new requirements? These questions are important to us and will be answered based on your desires.
