Design with Integrity on a Budget
I recently completed a project to design all finishes for a commercial development. The project presented the challenge of designing high-end finishes within a very limited, set budget. Financial restraints are a great challenge that speak to a designer’s creativity and more importantly, their integrity.
As a designer who strives to showcase my point of view in every design, I put forth a luxury look with careful attention to detail, as detail is where a lower budget can really show through if the space has not been carefully thought out.
For this project, Lanthia Hogg Designs was invited to design and facilitate the following: tile work, lighting, flooring, all bath fixtures, kitchen cabinetry and appliances, handrails, carpeting and paint colors. There are ways to make a space feel rich, strong, and beautiful if you are resourceful and have a keen eye. After in depth research, comparison pricing, and designing multiple spacial layouts, I was able to create a high-quality space that looked expensive.
I created a warm, strong, user-friendly space of integrity that truly impressed the client. Taking on this challenge to make something elevated and luxurious on a budget really takes creativity, knowledge and design integrity achieve these goals. I am so proud of how this project turned out.
