Are you designing a room that only you will use?

Or, will your husband or wife, children, friends, and family all, at some point, enjoy the new space. You will want to involve them in the design process. If you're selling your home in the next few years, you will also want to consider future buyers.

The amount of time, energy, and interest each of these people is willing to invest in your project will vary. If you're a control-freak like me, you'll be tempted to hoard the decision making. Resist that urge.

Others will see flaws in your plan that you do not. They will have ideas that will never occur to you. And, they will give you energy when remodeling has worn you out.
