Have you ever thought of enlisting the help of an interior designer but felt hesitant to quiz them on the process and find out what they do, what they cost and why you need them?
So what does an interior designer do?
An interior designer will simplify the process of building renovating and designing by working within a client’s brief and budget to create and implement schemes to fit the client’s taste and lifestyle. An interior designer will remodel a space to make it both functional and beautiful while taking into consideration the client’s wants, needs and budget. The aim is to take an ordinary room and make it extraordinary.Roblox HackBigo Live Beans HackYUGIOH DUEL LINKS HACKPokemon Duel HackRoblox HackPixel Gun 3d HackGrowtopia HackClash Royale Hackmy cafe recipes stories hackMobile Legends HackMobile Strike Hack

When should I hire one?
The earlier into your project the better. It can be very useful to have an interior designer look over the initial drawings to optimize space planning and interior layout, before the building work begins. With a smaller renovation or redecorating project, early input by an interior designer will create a unified environment in your home or office from the outset.

Why should I enlist one to help?
There are so many decisions to make during a renovation, it can be exhausting trying to navigate them all. Many clients come to a designer exhausted by the range of options for the decor of their home and not knowing where to start. Designers can come up with an idea or scheme for your home that is beyond your expectations.
Many clients come to a designer exhausted by the range of options available
A lot of our clients have great ideas and know what they want, but maybe not the wherewithal or the skills to pull it all together. Sometimes there’s no time to do the job themselves, or there are so many decisions they just don’t know where to start. That’s when you need us! Often it’s a fresh and experienced set of eyes that can make all the difference.
You can avoid many costly mistakes and have access to suppliers and pricing that might not otherwise be available.
Good design is good business. Good design is not about blowing a stack of money on expensive stuff. It should actually save you money.
What will a designer ask me before they agree to work with me?
A designer will ask how your room/s will be used, who lives there, about your colour and style preferences, budget, location and project timeline.It’s important to have a clear brief, including what you like and dislike about a room, which furniture is non-negotiable, if there are children, pets or other considerations.
It’s important to have a clear brief including what you like and dislike about a room
- It’s really important for us to get a clear brief from our clients so we have what we need to produce the best possible result. We ask what our clients love about the room, and what they hate – this will help us determine their taste. What furniture pieces must stay, and what can go. We need to know who will be using the room, and how they will be using it – do they entertain a lot? This helps with furniture selection and placement. What are their favourite colours, and colours they simply can’t live with. Pinterest is a very important tool for us, if our clients have Pinterest boards we can instantly get a feel for their style.
- What if after the initial meeting I am not happy with the style or ideas put forward by an interior designer, is it okay to walk away?You can walk away at any time. You may be charged the initial consultation fee unless you have negotiated an initial meeting at no cost .It helps to try to work through a scheme put forward by your interior designer before walking away. In some instances they may be trying to make you push the boundaries and this might take some time for you to get your head around. If there are elements of the scheme you would like to change most interior designers would be open to this.

What will it cost?
Rates for interior designers vary. Most charge per sq foot, from Rs100-300+. Ask at the outset for the rate and what an initial consultation will cost.
How will an interior designer help me stick to a budget?
Once a budget is decided, it’s our job to stick to it. It’s easier for us keep emotional decisions in check. If our client absolutely must have the top of the line music sysytem fully loaded we can choose a more cost effective tile to help balance it out.
Where do I find one?
Search online and asking around is the best way to find a designer. Ask a friend, architect, builder, kitchen installer, or your local paint or furnishings store.
How do I ensure they ‘get’ my style?
Collect pictures from magazines or online. Collect paint and fabric swatches or anything visual that illustrates your style. Keep communication lines open.
How do I push back on designs/ideas I don’t love?
If a designer puts forward design ideas that are not to your taste, don’t be afraid to let them know this. The home that you create together with their help must be one that you love and their job is to help you achieve this!
Do designers get better deals on furniture, fabric and hardware?
This is true. Designers often have access to furniture, fabric and homeware at discounted rates that can be passed on to the client.
Will working with an interior designer add value to my home in the long run?
Yes! A designer will save you a great deal of time, money and headaches. They will help you to avoid costly mistakes, and increase the value of your home. A good designer will add wow factor to your home which will up its market and resale value.
Nothing surpasses the feeling of exultation of having successfully beautified your home. Start small- focus on decorating one or two rooms and slowly build up from there until you have created your dream space!
