The beginning and ending of the interior design process might be clear to some, but many fall short while looking for their dream consultants. You might end up facing a few bumps in the road to a successful project, or you might face some difficulties vetting out contractors. Therefore, it is important to educate yourself in the actual process of interior design. Here are the various stages you’ll have to go through in order to get your dream end product.
The process of interior design starts when you find your dream designer and book an appointment with them. These appointments are called consultations, and they’re basically meetings where you and your designer communicate with each other. During these initial meetings, you tell your designer what you want your renovation to look like, you discuss ideas and have a band and forth that will help the designer better understand how they should better translate your visualization into reality.
When the initial consultations have been carried out successfully, and the designer understands your vision, it is time for the initial proposals and a rough estimate. These initial proposals consist of a very rough layout sketch and design implementation in which you can make the necessary amendments. As the time progresses, you can definitely see the final inklings of your interior design project in these proposals. It is only when you are satisfied with the changes that the final design is locked.
Signing off on the final quotation requires a thorough study of all current aspects of the interior design on the client’s part. They must be fully satisfied with the estimated budget as well as the concept and finalization of the design. At Home Guide Designs, we offer our clients a 360o Tour of a 3D visualization so that they can better envision the scale, proportions and dimensions of their finalized design. Only when the client is fully satisfied do we progress to signing the quotation.
Once the final quotation and budget have been signed off by the client, the actual process of the renovation is set into motion. In this stage of the interior design process, the designer sets about curating all the relevant materials, gadgets and furniture that had previously been sourced and priced in the Bill of Quantities. It also includes all the physical renovation works that have to be carried out in order for the finalized design to be implemented. In Singapore, the designers must always be very careful about adhering to the HDB guidelines in order to deliver a truly successful interior design.
After weeks of physical labor, structural analysis and getting approval from the HDB authorities, you can finally see the vision becoming a true reality. The project delivery is basically the designer handing over the finalized outcome to the client. It is a truly satisfying moment to see how the end product awes the client and makes them happy.
