Homeowners Guide to Choosing An Architect

Posted by: admin on 14/07/2020

We at Archilink believe that designers and clients must be compatible. Once you have created your design brief you will receive ‘bids’ from local designers that are interested in your project. Having an idea is easy but finding the correct designer that shares your exact vision is often the hard part, so we have created five easy steps to help you find the right architectural designer for your project.
  1. Create a detailed description of your project, images and measurements allow the designer to make a more informed decision.
  2. Look at the designer’s portfolios, click on their Archilink account and skim through their past projects. Make sure that they have completed similar projects in the past and that you like their style.
  3. Take the opportunity to meet multiple designers at your house this will allow you to form comparisons and understand what it is that you like and dislike.
  4. Ask the designer about their fees and what service is included in this price.

Finally, you will be spending a lot of time with a designer, make sure it’s someone you feel comfortable talking to!
