Choosing an interior designer for your home can be an overwhelming process for some, but knowing the right questions to ask can help.
- What is your design style? Choosing interior designers who can envision the style you have in mind is essential. A designer’s job is to bring your vision to life, but you want to be sure your designer can see your design ideas the way you do. Interior designers with a completely different design approach or style from what you have envisioned may not be a good match for your project; discuss your wants, needs, and budget up front to ensure everyone is on the same page.
- How do you handle project management? It’s important to know how your designer’s process works. Some interior designers present their proposed project to a customer, sharing fabrics, flooring, colors, and finishes all in one sitting. This adds the element of cohesion and allows the customer to see all parts of the design working together at once. Other interior designers may share proposed design pieces as they go, involving the customer more in their choices for the design. Either way, ensure you and your designer are on the same page during the design process.
- What is most important to you when planning a budget? You may have an elaborate new shower planned in your design dreams, but your designer may have other ideas for your budget. It’s essential to discuss where you want the emphasis of your project to be placed; however, remember your designer is a budgeting professional and is there to help you get the most for your money.
