What if I change my mind regarding the style or design during the renovation or decoration process?
If you change your mind during the process, the interior designer will do everything he/she can to accommodate your new idea. However, this may not always be possible, especially if the work is almost completed, or if it’s regarding a structure that, once installed, cannot be removed or may impact surrounding areas. So, make sure to share all your ideas before the work starts to avoid such confusion.
What if I want to renovate my home/office but don’t have a lot of time to dedicate to it?
Yes. In fact, this is where an interior designer comes in. They will take care of everything from design to shopping to delivery to installation. Moreover, they will oversee every detail and every step of the entire process to make sure you end up with a place that is comfortable, aesthetically pleasing and functional.
Why should I hire an interior designer?
An interior designer, especially if you work with them from the very beginning of a project, will help you conceptualize, plan and execute the entire process of remodeling or decorating your home or commercial space. They were professionally trained to make any space the best it can be, so you know you re in good and reliable hands.
How do I prepare myself for my first meeting with an interior designer?
It’s always helpful to have a rough sketch, or maybe a file of references or items which capture the style, essence or atmosphere of what you wish to create in your home. These references do not necessarily have to be of interior spaces or furniture. They can be colors, textures, art pieces, fashion statements, etc. What matters is that they represent what you wish to achieve.
Does the interior designer provide all the materials I will require?
In most cases, your interior designer, who works closely with other members of the team like the project coordinator, will know which materials will be required for the end result you wish to achieve. They themselves will purchase the materials, the prices of which will be included in your final bill.
Can the interior designer provide me with ideas if I’m not sure of my style?
Of course. That’s what an interior designer is for. Even if you do not exactly know what your end-result should look like, even if you’re not sure of your interior style, a skilled and creative interior designer will come up with many suggestions you may like, and in the process, help you identify your own style.
Will hiring an interior designer limit my style range if they only stick to one style?
Ideally, no. Your interior designer should be accommodating of your own ideas and styles, and work towards making them a reality if that’s what you want, even if it is not similar to their taste. However, they are allowed to make suggestions but cannot force you to agree to anything you do not want.
