How To Get The Most From Your Interior Designer
Interior Designer. Selective one is possible, often it can be a challenge when trying to determine the tastes and preferences of others. Interior designers may be half psychologists and half skilled professionals but mind readers, we don’t. A That’s why professional interior designers use special tools at the beginning of a project with new clients, which support the communication and relationship development process. However, to get the most out of your experience with an interior designer, there are a number of things that will make the process more successful and far more efficient.
Here is a guide to help prepare yourself for the process of hiring an interior designer:
Where – Defining space is a little more difficult today than in previous years. Open floor plans have created a dilemma with homeowners: where does one room end and the other begins if there are no clear boundaries?
What areas are considered for remodeling / redesigning?
- How is this area used?
- Who uses the area? When? How often?
- When – What is your schedule for the project?
- If construction is needed, how long can you manage the upheaval?
- Do you have a deadline in mind?
- How fast do you want to start?
- What do you want to achieve?
- How do you want a new space to feel and function?
- What do you want the results to be?
Who – You have to consider who will make contact with the finished space. Everyone knows how pets and children can affect the interior of a room, but you also have to consider the outside elements (natural sunlight), cooking smells, traffic patterns, etc.
Unless you can communicate with your designer what you like, don’t like, and want, it’s impossible for them to be able to help you achieve your goals. The best way to do this is with photos, either from magazines or the internet. Don’t expect to find everything in one place or one photo; You might like the color in window treatments and want to use it on your wall or like the sofa line but hate cloth. The more signals you can give your designer, the easier the process, the less time consuming and cheaper.
To Minimize The Possible For Being Overwhelmed
Another method that I often use when reviewing a magazine is to see it backwards; from back to front. It’s amazing how different the viewpoint you will find. I actually like this method better than others because without reading the title of the article, what you would do if you read from front to back, someone does not have an idea of what to expect; You don’t know the focus of the article and can therefore see the page with a more open mind. Pretty enough!
There will soon be threads along with what you find and this is the place to start the design process.
