When most people think about hiring an interior designer, they focus in on aesthetics, wall colors, furniture selection and pillow patterns. But that’s just scratching the surface of what a designer can add to a project. These professional’s goes beyond the cosmetic surfaces to ensure that a space feels harmonious and practical, from the space plan to the fixed furniture detail drawings and bill of quantity.
A designer project, plans and outfits spaces in a way that makes them both beautiful and functional. He or she balances aesthetic look with structural space planning to reflect the clients’ lifestyle, sets the desired scene and ensure that less desired details is hidden or blends in with the rest of the scheme. Like your electrical wires, oh boy do we hate them.
An interior designer also cultivates relationships with trusted suppliers and contractors to execute the design. Or she or he can be a good contractor were they are free to choose the quality of the finishes and the sub – contractors implementing them. This can be helpful specially in Kuwait.
How to chose an interior designer/ builder
Be sure the designer is a good match for your style. No two clients are alike, and a good interior designer is good enough to hop from urban ultra modern, to rustic farmhouse to beach side getaway without missing a beat. However, almost all of them have a fundamental aesthetic that remains consistent throughout their work. For example, if you want pure whites and pale neutrals, don’t choose a designer whose signature is bold color palettes. When interviewing designers, look for parallels between their previous work and the design you want.
Be open to new ideas
It’s a rare to find a client who loves 100 percent of a designer’s suggestions right off the bat. Your designer might recommend a furniture layout or a wallpaper pattern that you don’t care for, but don’t say no without giving the idea some time to sink in. Chances are that when you ask your designer why he or she chose it, and when you take a little time to live with it, you’ll appreciate the reason it works.
