5 questions before starting to work with your interior designer
One of the most important decisions is to choose that person who will make the most out of the different spaces in your home. This is why we offer you some of the questions you need to make yourself to find the professional that best adapts to your needs.
How involved do you wish to be? It’s important to ask yourself this question and to be clear with your interior designer about your position. Since this is a highly creative profession, some may not accept too much participation from you, so it’s fundamental that you know how involved you wish to be so you can discard those designers who cannot meet your needs.
What is your budget? Don’t see the budget as a strait jacket, simply as a starting point and as a reference for your designer and yourself. When this question is answered, you will avoid misunderstandings beforehand.
What is your style? Alright, you are trusting a professional to shape your spaces, but you must understand that from the most rustic decorations to the most modern styles, there is a very wide gap. You must give your style, so the decoration can be born out of it.
Do you wish to be shown a lot or a few options? During the process, there will be many moments when you will have to decide styles, prices and compatibility between different elements; however, some designers tend to offer too many options so that the client feels good. The problem is that you may be one of those people that get overwhelmed towards so many alternatives. Ask yourself and be clear on your position to the designer from the starting point.
Are you willing to invest the necessary time? As you must have read until here, aside from the disposition and the investment, this process needs you to commit some time. Are you willing? Remember that you are making decisions about your spaces, where you want to be comfortable and see yourself reflected, and this is impossible for an interior designer to accomplish without your help. Take it as an adventure and enjoy it.
