Here’s What I Love… communicating with CAD

 

 

Ask any Interior Designer and they will tell you that construction drawings are the road map for a successful project. They communicate our design and ensure that our ideas are accurately executed. And best of all, a good set of drawings can you save you a whole lot of moola. Read on to find out why using CAD (Computer Aided Design) is the best way to take your project from concept to completion.

CAD drawings

COMMUNICATION:
 Our schematics tell our contractors and trades exactly what to do. Our drawing sets include everything from lighting locations, millwork design, tile layouts, to locations of new partitions.

ACCURACY:
 Interior designers are trained to consider human interaction with the built environment. We use CAD to ensure that our designs and ideas function. It’s a great resource for ensuring appropriate ergonomics, circulation, and allowances.

THE DETAILS:
 The difference between good design and great design is in the details. Our drawings always include construction details to deal with tricky on-site conditions. CAD allows us to clearly communicate those details to our clients and trades.

PERMITS: 
All construction projects require a building or development permit. You will require a set of drawings that include floor plans, elevations, and construction details to get approved. CAD guarantees clean and professional drawings for the city to review.

COST SAVINGS: “
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. Mistakes in the construction phase can be very costly so getting everything right at the onset can save you huge. Invest in a good set of drawings to ensure everyone is on the same page and things are executed exactly the way you envision.

Producing drawings is a big part of the job for Interior Designers, but time spent in the schematic design phase is never wasted. We hope this inspires you to use a design professional, and get the drawings you need, for your next project!

  • Happy Monday!⠀
⠀
Getting back into the school week and heading out of the house in the morning is made a little bit harder when you have to leave a space like this.⠀
⠀
Guessing our clients may have poured one more cup of coffee to hang out here a little longer this morning. ⠀

  • This once was a plain hallway to the upstairs bedrooms. Now it’s a beautiful loft in this gorgeous home. The sightline to it from the front entry is significant so it was an important aspect to making this house feel like home.

We added @visualcomfortco sconces, reused the pendants we replaced in the kitchen, added antique mirror to the cabinet doors and painted everything else.
.
Of course the piéce de resistance is the circa 1912 runner from @elte. It was the unicorn of the project and we couldn’t believe how perfectly it suits the space.

This is how you do an update. Smart thoughtful beautiful.

  • Yay it’s Friday!  Yes it been a short week, but who doesn’t love a Friday?⠀

We’ve been planning a wine room with a special client this week, and thought I’d take a peek back at this gem we magic’d up for our #pattersonluxuryreno project. Party potential. ⠀

  • Sometimes it’s the little things. Sometimes it’s the big things.

This room refresh took this space from grandma bland to guest room glam and all it took was paint, new lighting, new carpeting, furniture, bedding, pillows and accessories.
.
You have to commit to the change.
