What should I look for in an interior designer?
An Interior designer could spell the difference between ordinary and cohesive, beautiful yet functional. A good interior designer will extract your style in to its essence, creating a functional layout that feels natural to you. Here's what you should do to get the best out of your interior designer :
Do Your Research
Envision how you want the space to be laid out
Document your ideas however you can. Photos from online are a good way to illustrate your intentions
Communicate what you want and what your budget is with clarity
Explore different designs and styles that suit you, for example : modern minimalist, country, rustic, Zen, French, Balinese. Use them as examples
Share & Communicate
Communicate all your thoughts and inspirations with your interior designer
Your interior designer's best ideas usually comes from the little bits you share about yourself
Remember, the interior designer will have to figure out your needs from the ground up.
Don't Be Afraid to Ask
Ask around for recommendations and reviews from previous customers, friends and family
Review the interior designer's previous work
Ask for a list of the interior designer's contractors and suppliers to see if they are within your requirements and budget
Ask how your interior designer charges - hourly or flat rates, lump sum fees, cost-plus or mixed method?
Execute & Monitor
Get a 3D or 2D illustration of your designers final plan for your interior space, to make sure you are happy with the design before they start.
While you want to give your designer space to do their job, be sure to stay in the loop and get frequent updates from them.
Sit back and enjoy the transformation of your space!
