Meeting the needs of the client is critical for any project. To do that, a designer must be a good listener so that from day one both the practical needs and the dreams of a client are a part of the process. Translating ideas into form and function within the stated budget requires a blend of design expertise, thorough knowledge of product and a good dose of creativity.  Each client brings their personal perspective of what is important, what their dream is, what their needs are in terms of storage, style, function and budget. In any project,  whether it be designing for new construction or renovation, the final goal is to create a space that not only meets the needs of the client but is also is a reflection of their personality, their style.
