3. How to Create a Reflected Ceiling Plan
- Maintain your budget because you do not need to renovate everything at once; the trick is to renovate a few things at a time.
- The best design is one that is both innovative and practical; the worst design is one that is neither.
- Keep in mind that you should select the proper style and level of detail based on your or your client's requirements.
- Always double-check your measurements; if they're off by even a fraction of an inch, the whole thing is invalidated, and you'll have to repeat the process.
- Use the symbols appropriately and place them where they are needed; Do not overcrowd the sketch with things; the bare minimum will suffice to make your design appealing.
