This preliminary design meeting is also the time to discuss in depth details like lighting cabinet styles and finishes if it has not been done. If the revisions are such that it would be prudent to review the preliminary again once they are done that would be the next step. If any revisions are minor then the design is ready to be finalized. The next meeting will be to review the finalized drawings. Expect to see floor plans with the electrical outlets and switches or separate electrical plans interior elevations (cabinet and other views) exterior elevations cross sections if necessary (always on two or three story) form plan roof plan and plot plan.
If the due diligence has not been this thorough then there is a good chance you will not get your dream home design. No matter how creative it is if it is not what you imagined then it is a failed design. I am not suggesting taking away creative freedom only that any expectations have to be communicated. Make sure the designer is asking all the right questions or make sure you volunteer them. Alternatively just consider another designer because it is hard to correct a design that heads down the wrong path. Only when the scope of the design has been completely defined should the design drawing begin.
Updating a home involves many elements of change which involves anything from modern furniture and artwork to room designs. A home can be transformed into a contemporary dwelling with features and accents that have a 21st century edge and style. Modern home design elements can add a touch of style and design to any home. Modern homes can mean many things to many people but all of them point to non-traditional style and features. Contemporary home furnishing outlets have home furnishings available including things like glass panel kitchen cabinets and island kitchens with bar stool seating.
This homework is the first step in the house design. No matter how talented the designer they are dependent on you for it to be a custom design with communication being the key. So do not be shy about providing whatever you have accumulated or generated whether it be pictures notes spreadsheets or anything else that helps present what you want. Whether you provide a lot of material or none at all though it is the designers responsibility to discuss anything relevant to the project. The initial design conference meeting(s) will be to completely define your dream home.
