How to Prepare for a Remodeling and Design Consultation:
Make notes of your likes and dislikes.
Look at websites and design magazines and cut out pictures of things that you love.
Go to your local home improvement store and actually look at the items and prices of things that you will use during the course of your remodel (such as light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, ceramic tile, etc.)
Give some thought to your budget and decide how much money you want to put towards your improvements.
