Tip: Using patterns to prevent design mistakes

I’ve touched upon how you can use a pattern to decide where to place new kitchen pendants, how to use it to position a heavy mirror, and for help on deciding art placement.

We are also using a pattern (cut from foam core board) to decide how much of an arch we want to do over the kitchen cabinets. This already helped us because the arched cabinets to the left gave an illusion that the arch was lower then it was – we were able to re-position easily with the foam board and prevented a costly cutting mistake.

Whenever possible try to provide a visual reference to where your project is going. It really does help!
