25 Feb Things to consider when it comes to interior design
If you have finally decided to take the plunge and redesign either your kitchen, bedrooms, or perhaps even your whole house, then well done to you as this can be a very exciting time. There are so many possibilities when it comes to interior design, especially given the expertise and creative ideas supplied by Intricate Living.
Interior designers are there to guide you through the design process from beginning to end, working with you to make the most of your living space. However, before you start planning out your interior design dreams, there are a few pointers which you should think about beforehand, in order to make the process run as smoothly as possible.
When meeting with your interior designer, it is important to be able to discuss how you and your family use your living space. Factors such as where you eat your meals, where you relax and how big your family is will all come into play. By assessing your lifestyle, it will help you to create a house plan in which space is utilized correctly for the best results.
Assess your needs:
When it comes to interior design, there are needs which are required and there are also needs which are more like ‘wants’. Even though some requirements are more vital than others, keep both in mind and communicate them to your interior designer. If everyone is able to communicate about this, then you will get the most out of your renovation.
It is a good idea to have a look in magazines, look at other people’s houses or browse the Internet for interior design inspiration so that you get an idea of how you want your dream home to look. You can also create a file in which you gather ideas to share with your interior designer. At Intricate Living, we get to know our clients’ style and ideas before we start planning. This is a very important part of the process, so gather ideas and get inspired!
Have an open mind:
While it is important to have your own ideas in mind, don’t be afraid to move a little out of your comfort zone. Interior design is about being creative and innovative, so keep an open mind through the process and let your interior designer show you their vision. At Intricate Living, we use unique 3D designs which display your vision in 3D detail. This will enable you to really get a feel for what we have in mind so you can assess your level of comfort with the idea.
The process of interior design can really be one of excitement and discovery, so follow these tips and enjoy the process!
