When clients hire a design professional, it’s rare they have an accurate budget that represents their actual wish list. More often, the clients describe a dream home scenario and then, when they do mention a budget, it falls far short of project desires. How then does the professional designer provide a client with an accurate budget? Follow Kimberley’s guidelines to budgeting with precision.
In this course, you will learn:
a quick technique for getting the client to identify a budget (in theory) prior to the consultation
simple, effective method for determining an initial budget at the consultation
how the client’s initial budget differs from the actual budget
who’s ultimately responsibility for the budget
the difference between designing to a budget or designing to a wish list
what happens if your budget (the one based on facts) is greater than the budget the client wants to spend?
