Birthday( Month and Day only):
Family Details - Plans
How long do you plan on staying in this home? (Once you know this, you can figure out how much time and money you really want to put into any type of design.)
Family Details - Decisions
Who are the decision makers?
Family Details - Inhabitants
Who lives in your home and what are their ages? This isn’t a trick question. Do you have children that will be off to college soon or an elderly parent living with you that has a need for grab bars?
Family Details - Pets
Do you have pets? (This really makes you think about the types of finishes you want to install in your home and your furniture purchases and whether they are adequate for those furry friends in your life) Write down what you think might be a questionable choice and research it later.
Lifestyle - Entertainment
Do you entertain quite a bit? (Do you currently have room for this, or do you need to reallocate space for this purpose?) If so, what do you need to make sure you include so entertaining becomes easier?
Lifestyle - Style
Are you more casual or formal? How often do you have guests? How many?
Lifestyle - Activities
Write a list of your family’s regular activities. (Does Joey like to do puzzles in the living room, or does Suzy like to paint in the kitchen? Finding out if you need to make rooms dual purpose or where to relocate these activities locations help you see how you want to use your space.)
Lifestyle - Travel
Do you travel often? Do you collect on your travels? If so, what type of things do you bring back?
How many hours per week will be devoted to cleaning and/or maintenance of your home? Do you have professionals clean your home? If yes, how often?
Your Home - Current Style
What is the style of your current home? (Is your house Modern, then perhaps Country would look silly as a design style to choose)
Your Home - Desired Style
What style would you like to see in your home after we redesign it?
Your Home - Likes
What do you like about your home?
Your Home - Dislikes
What does upset you about your home?
Your Taste - Favourite Piece
Do you have a favorite piece of furniture or artwork you absolutely love? (Maybe we can use this as the starting point for your design)
Your Taste - Favourite Place
Is there a public place that you like? (Think hotel, museum, even a TV show set)
Your Taste - Colours
What are your favorite colours? What colours do you just hate? What colors do your family member love and hate?
Your Taste - Does family approve?
Does everyone in the house have the same design taste? If not, are the tastes similar or polar opposites? If they are different, have you figured out how you are going to reconcile the differences? Blind ballot, coin toss, majority vote…?
Your Taste - Wallpaper
Are you comfortable considering wallpaper in specific rooms?
Hint: Typically this is limited to baths, kitchens, and laundry rooms.
Your Favourite Shops
Where do you shop for home furnishings and accessories?
Do you have pieces of art you want to use in the design?
