For a successful and efficient design result
“Interior design is the art and science of enhancing the interior of a building to achieve a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing environment for the people using the space.” Quote from Wikipedia
I’m often asked what is it exactly that you do?
So, I thought to write a post and summarise how we work with our clients.
For the past 15 years, we have engaged in different scales of residential projects.
For example, a project can be to furnish one room, do a colour selection for a home or building, or design a new bathroom. Or a combination to remodel the entire interior of a family home.
Each project is so different. This is what makes my job so interesting, above all, I love the connection and trust we build with our clients.
How do we work with our clients?
To begin, we have a friendly chat with our prospective clients
In this conversation, I can establish a clear idea of the type of project the future client is looking for. Following our friendly chat, we schedule an initial paid consultation.
During this onsite consultation, we discuss likes and dislikes, design, style, and budget. Meeting with new clients is exciting; we start from scratch and build a brief.
Establishing a BRIEF
Establishing a brief based on the ideas and solutions we discussed at the initial consultation. “The brief” develops the base as we move through stage 1 of our process.
Stage 1 | The Design Agreement is compiled
Included in the design agreement is the scope of work written in details and our design fees. We review the design agreement with our client; after that, for the project to begin the design agreement is signed and our design fees are paid.
Stage 2 | Working on the concept
After collating most of the information during the brief we do a check measure of the space. We design a concept, which includes product samples, an image of product, concept sketch, floor layout and drawings. A written specification is submitted with the approximate cost of items selected. We allow for one revision of the concept.
For our interior projects; we aim to source products/items locally but are not limited too. We create a healthy environment but most importantly we design a long-lasting interior for our clients. Our design is more about improving the lives of our clients. Trends come and go, but our designs are timeless.
Stage 3 | Approval of the Concept Design ✅
Quotations are organised and prepared for suppliers and trades. A timeline of the work is established. We proceed with orders and schedule the relevant trades. Orders are only processed on the approval of the client.
Stage 4 | Site visit and installation
What our team does to achieve a successful and efficient design result …
- Supervise our curtain installer
- We are onsite when the furniture is delivered
- Art and accessories are carefully presented on walls with the art installer team
- We work with a great and trusting team of trade’s people
From a broad range of services, this is a summary of how we work with our clients to achieve a great scope of design work.
