Building a house can feel like a daunting task, but partnering with a design coordinator can make it easy and even fun. Keeping up with trends and knowing how to achieve the space you want is their business. Professionals know how to pull together all the components—whatever your budget. We checked in with Hannah Swain, building consultant at Manuel Builders’ Towne Center location, to learn how the right design pro can help pull it all together.
You may have your own decorator to work with the building consultant, or you may be more hands-on—a real pro can accommodate any situation seamlessly. “It’s so important to have a designer and building consultant who really listen to each client’s individual vision and give them the kind of assistance they want,” Hannah says.

MAKE IT SIMPLE
1. Establish a budget. How much money do you want to spend on the project? It is important that you accurately communicate that number to the designer so that they can make better suggestions.
2. Discuss your lifestyle and the activities you usually do at home so the design coordinator can help build spaces that enhance the way you live.
3. Talk to your design coordinator about your favorite art or furniture pieces and work together to find a way to integrate them in the new design.
