Ready – Set – Go! How Planning in Advance Saves You Time and Money

We all know this setting; a quick “ready?”, a quick “set” and then even a quicker “go”. But how long should “ready” or “set” take? Today we’re talking about the importance of planning in advance.

We are living in a world where the resources are running out. The market suffers from the lack of raw materials, actual products and labor force. When online businesses took over the market, we learned to live in an illusion that everything can be delivered to your doorstep overnight, and maybe it's partly because of consumerism that we were pushed into this situation.


A good design concept doesn’t compromise on the availability of necessary products just because the goal is to be sustainable and not in need of a replacement in the next years – or maybe even decades.

There are plenty of aspects to take into consideration when planning a renovation. Somehow it seems it's the planner who will be contacted the last, and the plan should've always been ready yesterday. To make a proper interior plan one must pay attention to materials, colors, schemes, lights, products, construction… The list goes on. A good design concept doesn’t compromise on the availability of necessary products just because the goal is to be sustainable and not in need of a replacement in the next years – or maybe even decades.

When you are looking for your design guru, don’t settle with someone who is willing to deliver a plan on the shortest notice. It might seem attractive at first, but most probably it will cost you in the end. A good professional never says they’ll do the planning with too short notice. A real professional knows that good quality design takes time and adjustments, and the final product is worth the wait.

When the “ready?” and “set” are “set”, the “go” can be surprisingly short.
