This is the first time to really know if you are on the same page as your designer. That is why the due diligence was so critical. Hopefully any revisions will be minimal but most importantly none will cause a compromise to the design. Sometimes even with all the necessary communication the design is still not what was expected. Unfortunately this is often do to the designer substituting their preferences. That is another reason to define what is expected. If it was discussed there is no excuse that it was never communicated. Stand your ground even if it means starting the design over.
A designer has a responsibility to a client to inform them if they think they are making a mistake. Once the client knows why you are concerned hopefully they will agree. It is never acceptable to just ignore a clients wishes or substitute your own preferences. This preliminary design meeting is also the time to discuss in depth details like lighting, cabinet styles and finishes if it has not been done. If the revisions are such that it would be prudent to review the preliminary again once they are done that would be the next step. If any revisions are minor then the design is ready to be finalized.
Focus on lighting--both artificial and natural light. The home can never have too much light, and so the budget should allow for numerous light sources throughout the home, from one room to the next. Keep in mind that one central ceiling-mounted light fixture just won't do, and instead, aim for six light sources per room. As for natural light, with all the advances in insulated windows today, choose a design that lets the sun shine in through as many openings as possible.
