STEP 2 Brief, budget & Expectations
Your brief, budget and expectations are often 3 things that don’t correspond perfectly! Having the best advice at this point on your journey can ensure that you get as close as possible to satisfying all three.

It’s good to write a list of ‘must haves’ and also a list of ‘nice to haves’ so you can work with a designer and fitout expert to achieve as many as possible.
