A handy de­sign ref­er­ence helps you com­mu­ni­cate with your con­trac­tor, bud­get and con­fi­dently make pur­chas­ing de­ci­sions.

In­clude pic­tures that show the fea­tures you’d like, and also write a list to the side about what you want to in­cor­po­rate.

You may not want ev­ery­thing in that pic­ture, so make a note of why you in­cluded it. In­clud­ing large fur­ni­ture items here can also help you get a more ac­cu­rate bud­get es­ti­mate.

Then when you come across some­thing that fits that plan, you can snap it up, whether it’s at a flea mar­ket, by the side of the road or else­where.

In­clude prod­ucts you’ve al­ready picked and plan to buy. You can add these as you go, and not only will it help you keep an eye on your bud­get, but you can also see your de­sign come to­gether in real time.
