3 Important Things You Can Do to Prepare for Your Consultation
You’ve scheduled your custom color consultation, so what’s next? We’re glad you asked! Here are the best ways to make the most of your upcoming consultation, which is a critical component of our Interior Paint Colors & Custom Color Schemes service. The more preparation you do before we come out to your home, the more value you will receive for the time scheduled. A little homework on your part goes a long way in choosing the right colors for your home!
Task #1: Save and Share Images that Inspire You
Before your 15-minute phone interview, gather inspiration photos for each room. Scroll through Pinterest, Houzz.com, and magazines. Search online, observe other spaces and homes you like, and take photos. Then, share them with us via email, a Google/iCloud link, or Pinterest/Houzz boards! As we prepare for your consultation, we look at your photos, consider the information on your interview call, and look at current photos of your rooms to see how they relate to each other. (We never choose colors from photos!)
Task #2: Discuss and Determine Your Project Goals
Think about what you want to accomplish with your color consultation. Brainstorm your dream home ideas, colors you like or dislike, styles, and artwork you love with family members who share your spaces. What is the scope of your project? If you’re replacing countertops, backsplash, tile, flooring or carpeting, gather samples of each finish (in different colors, patterns, textures you’re considering), and have them available for the in-person visit.
Task #3: Prepare and Plan to Keep Your Mind Open
Once your “homework” is done, relax, breathe, and prepare yourself. Home remodeling is stressful. There are many decisions to make. Keeping an open mind and a positive attitude goes a long way toward ending up with the right answers. Having multiple sample choices, trusting the process, and trusting that your color consultant will take your likes/dislikes into consideration eases the stress. A final note of encouragement: a little prep work on your part ensures the consultation will go more smoothly. By brainstorming with loved ones, sending us inspiration photos, and keeping an open mind, you will have colors that give you the intentional, designed look for which you are striving. Staying open to colors you may not have considered and trusting our deep knowledge of color, our process, and our years of experience will lead you to the right colors the first time!
