Involving Clients in the Creative Process

KBtribechat host Gloria Sollecito finds that the best projects are successful collaborations between clients and trade professionals. This includes ways to create kitchens that reflect not just a designer’s concept but a homeowner’s vision as well. Most of her clients, even if not DIYers, like to be involved in the evolution of the design. It is very much about collaboration, personalization, customization, flawless function, emotional and visual appeal. Join us for #KBtribechat on September 9th as we chat about collaboration and how clients are involved in the creative process.
