How to define your interior design project?


How to define your interior design project? 

When I initially started my own business, one of the very first stuff I did was create a list of the service kinds I intended to provide. I was all over the place and I quickly realized that I will be leaving out crucial information that would have made it easier for me to talk about our services and ensure that I was recommending the best alternative for my customer.

After a time, I realized I was offering too many services, which was confusing for both me and my potential new clients, and eliminating the services that do not best suit my expertise, most inquired, and closed contracts.

Today, I see the need of providing a well-defined, simplified ladder of services, and I'd want to show you where to go so that you and your clients can leave overwhelming at the door.

What things should be explained first?

Before I start any project, I often ask my potential and existing clients about the colors that attract them and the colors they do not want to see. In this way, they know what colors they will be expecting and that I will be eliminating them.

Start from your favorite color:

Begin with a color scheme that you find appealing. Typically, room design uses subdued and natural tones rather than your particular preferred color. Your preferred colors, on the other hand, may be modulated to reflect gently from every area in the house.

Do you have a thing for blues? Choose blue-tinted greys for the walls to gleam blue in the sun. Your favorite colors are red and purple. For an unobtrusive yet dramatic appearance, pair dusty rose walls and dark stained wood beams.

Next question, I would be discussing the Aesthetics, the look they have envisioned for the space. The concept that they had in mind by identifying their lifestyle and the lifestyle they have envisioned.

The Concept:

Each individual has their own perspective of what is fashionable. Some people like sitting in an elegant Neo-Victorian sitting room. Some people believe that the most appealing approach to arranging a living room is with abstract art and geometrical furniture.

Do you think curving baroque frames or crisp angles appear more stylish? Do you like to display paintings or sculptures? Will you choose swinging drapes or automated electric shades for your window treatments?


Take note of the parallels:

It's time to determine the common threads once you've gathered a good amount of pictures. Is there a particular color scheme that appeals to you? Do jewel tones appeal to you more than pastels? To color, are you neutral? What is the difference between a shiny and a matte finish? What about the furniture's silhouette and shapes? Are they elaborate or straightforward? Is it better to buy an antique or a brand-new item? What about the room's "vibe"? Is it a casual or formal setting? Make a list of the underlying commonalities you see between the spaces you admire.

Lights: Light is used by professionals to alter the size and ambiance of a location. Different forms of lighting may elicit various emotions in space. The sort of lighting used and where it is placed are both important parts of interior design. They function in tandem with the furniture you choose, the amount of natural light you have, the size of the space, and the color you choose.


About the recent project:

Share your latest project load with your customer right away so they understand your capacity and that you could be working with many clients at once. And also share some reviews and that done projects which liked by previous clients. If you are new and don’t have any previous so just make any free offer and design some home office projects and use that as a portfolio and make them sure about the skills that can grab the clients and make you satisfied.

Explain human errors:

Explain to customers that there is always something that goes wrong in interior design jobs; it isn't a precise science. That's the nature of the industry, but it is your responsibility as an interior designer to deal with any complications that emerge.


Take note of the textures of the room. Fabric options for the room's upholstered furniture, drapes or curtains, walls, and wood furniture contribute to the texture factor. Both can be rough-hewn or shiny, highly finished wood, two textures that are vastly different. Cloth texture can be described as nubby, smooth, silky, or tweedy. Rough, rustic, damaged, or smooth textures can be seen on walls. In contrast to the textures detailed here, there are more. Choose the term that best defines the room's overall texture.

At the finishing stage:

Finally, evaluate your accomplishments. When you appreciate the finished product, you've discovered your internal interior design style. Redesign your living space and then take a step back to evaluate if you're happy with the results. What you are seeing will be excellent or give you another few ideas and thoughts on how to improve your design. Your finest design style will emerge as a result of this procedure. 

How do you find this explanation of why it is important to know and define your interior design project?
