What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Once the designer understands the extent of your scope, they should be able to foresee some of the issues that may arise in your project and offer creative, manageable solutions. The marker of a good designer is not that the designer can avoid invevitable problems, but how the designer rises to the challenge and provides new perspectives to solving the problems.

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Potential clients should have a good grasp of their complete scope and a budget range. The budget should be divided into costs for the expected construction labor, materials and finishes, furnishings, and separately, the design services. Together with the contractor, the designer will best be able to determine if the budget is workable or suggest other alternatives.
