Project Starting Point: A Room Renovation Checklist

The team at AGI is always striving for ways to streamline our process, make it lean and mean!  When it comes to full-room designs and renovations, there are key pieces that are always part of what we plan for, and the best way to keep track of what we need, and what we've yet to find is simply a room checklist.

When clients come to us, they've often reached a point where they're tired of trying to figure out what to do in their homes, and are ready for professional help.  That doesn't mean, though, that they aren't willing to do a little more legwork to make sure the design process flows smoothly.

Seeing the room checklist is a great visual to give clients an idea of what we'll be spending design time thinking through, but it's also a great tool to help clients think about their overall budget.  When we have a client who isn't sure where they fall on the budget spectrum, we suggest using the checklist to run a loose tally.   In a living room, for example, we recommend looking at each item on the checklist, and thinking about what they'd feel comfortable spending on them.  Once a client can see what they'd invest in a sofa, a coffee table, window treatments, etc, they get a good idea of what it might cost to furnish a space.  

Thinking it might be helpful to have our handy-dandy checklist, we're sharing a downloadable version for bathroom, living room, and bedroom renovations/redecorations.  Feel free to download this form to use for planning, purchasing, and budgeting.
