Advising on color schemes is something most people trust to an interior designer but being able to consult with your client on color and design is an essential part of the remodeling process. Your experience and ability to see the full potential of the home are why your clients entrust their projects to you.
Below are three popular design schemes that you can suggest to your clients this summer to keep their homes fresh and up to date.
- Wall materials. Wood palette walls are still trending but reclaimed wood is starting to steal the show. Feature walls made of bamboo and other sustainable materials are a great way to add texture to a room.
- Natural color schemes. 2017 Pantone Color of the year is Greenery. Encouraging clients to incorporate green and other natural colors into their home can help unify the palette.
- Eliminate small spaces. Open floor plans are still highly desirable. Talk to your clients about opening up a combined space to expand living space.
Incorporating these trends can transform your client’s home to one that is more welcoming and can incorporate the personality of the homeowner. Offer a variety of suggestions with consulting on a remodel to give clients an opportunity to choose from something classic or opt for a more creative outcome.
If your clients are hesitant to take on a larger, more intricate project due to a limited budget, be prepared to offer them a financing option that eliminates the stress of a one-time purchase. Low monthly payments can allow your clients to splurge on materials or simply break up the cost.
