Our host Arielle Mégie (second from left) with Armen Alajian (Arto Brick), Stacy Garcia and Home Advisor at KBIS 2015

As an independent designer, I find myself with many daily challenges!

My KBtribechat Questions: 

Q1.) What are the pros and cons of having a showroom or a business office with samples?

Q2.) Do you charge a design fee for the initial consultation or add it into your project estimate? Explain your reasoning!

Q3.) How do you communicate possible design choices to your clients? Do you bring samples or show pictures?  Do you use an iPad or paper catalogs or go to a showroom to see actual displays?

Q4.) Making an accurate estimate without a design is problematic but many clients don’t want to proceed without a budget idea. How do you solve this?

Q5.) Please share your successful design business tips!
