So you have decided to work with an Interior Designer to transform your ordinary space into a dream home, and you have set up your first design consultation meeting, right? Then what next?
Go through the blog to know how to prepare for your consultation and make your time productive.
Decide Your Goals for the Space
Before starting the work, have a clear mindset of how the design should be and what are the goals and priorities?
Clients come with many different reasons for seeking design help when selecting the furnishings for their homes.
Some are seeking a more stylish design than in the past. For someone, the design made in the past is no longer appropriate for the use and abuse of a young, active family.
So it is recommended to list the goals and make them clear to your designer to avoid unwanted expenses.
Plan With a Realistic Budget
If this is your first-ever design consultation, you have to do a little research on a budget that most people have no idea about.
Every designer has a different business structure; to avoid time and money, be prepared to ask questions to create a realistic budget.
Let Daily Habits Inspire the Design
First, imagine how your home should be. Feelings vary from design to design.
Some will feel satisfied and comfortable in classical interior design than trending and modern design.
So choosing the design which excites you as long as you are inside the home is primary.
Know Aesthetic Preferences Ahead of Time
After scheduling a meeting, you have to do a little bit of homework collecting your favourite interior design pictures from Pinterest or other sources that inspire you.
Because the vocabulary may differ from person to person, but the image represents your thought exactly.
Determine a Decision-Making Process
Be sure to have all decision-makers present at pre-design meetings. If this is not possible, be prepared to share the party’s goals, priorities, and preferences because we need the input of everyone that will be involved in the design decision-making.
Give whatever information you need to your designer. Make decisions quickly and be open to new ideas that you may not have thought of.
