Tool: Design Boards are the go-to solution for communicating the design direction. Because it helps everyone involved in the project begin to visualize it.

Design boards often include:

actual paint chips

flooring

stone

wallpaper

ceiling treatments

photos of furniture

Above all, design boards can, and do, contain anything that fits on the board and will be used in the final product.

It’s helpful to see all the elements together. Because clients like to touch everything as they examine the materials.

So, I make sure the boards aren’t fragile.

Touching is very encouraged.

In conclusion, Tool: Design Boards are great. I make them very early in the project. So everyone can literally get a feel for the design direction.
