Owners who pay millions for luxury homes and condos want every piece of square footage to look brilliant. Anything that detracts from the look, style, and impact undermines the property's overall value. And "impact" varies from one owner to another. When people walk into a kitchen and acknowledge how beautiful it is, that's one reflection of impact. When visitors feel moved by the design's tech-oriented modernness, that's another. While the property owner may have a vision for what he/she wants in a kitchen or bathroom, it's up to the designer to realize the concept. Finding such a talented designer won't be easy. Or will it? If a kitchen and bath recruiting agency takes on the job, then the burden shifts from the property owner to the headhunter.
Influences and Artistry
Since the look of the bathroom or kitchen won't solely focus on function, reviewing the designer's artistic influences makes sense. Someone with a passion for modern metropolitan art could be the perfect fit for a condo overlooking Manhattan. Abstract art fans may be perfect for an avant-garde musician who wants a look that's way "out there." Discussions about artistic influences and how they'll weave into the design process may be best left to an expert recruiter.
Expressions of Social Consciousness
Kitchens and their appliances do require electricity to function. In today's environmentally conscious world, some concerns may exist about the carbon footprint of an elegant kitchen. A bathroom may face such inquiry, too. Purchasing "Energy Star" appliances reduces waste, but will people know about a room's efficiency by sight alone? A highly talented designer may be able to address the question adequately. A virtuoso design approach could get the environmental consciousness across brilliantly.
No Questions About Competency
Artistry and innovation can't come at the expense of function. Who wants to walk into a room that feels crowded due to poor design? How can you cook in a kitchen that lacks an appealing layout? A competent designer would likely consider such concerns. A homeowner may not be able to determine who is or isn't competent. An experienced kitchen and bath headhunter, however, is best qualified to do so.
Call on the Recruiters
You may think your preferences in a kitchen and bath designer embody such high standards that filling the position may prove difficult. No matter. Kitchen and bath industry recruiters exist to help clients find the perfect person for the job. Let the agency handle the hard work.
