Getting ready to set an appointment with your home decorator or interior stylist? Check out these questions that interior design professionals ask their clients during meetings.
What do you love and hate about your home or this specific area?
This question will help you open up to your interior stylist about what you want to be achieved from your design project. It may save you time to create a document prior to your consultation that lists down the things that you currently hate and love about your home or the specific room involved in the project. For instance, you can state your lack of storage space in the list of things you dislike and your big picture window in the things you love. With all this essential information, your interior stylist will have an idea of what areas should be prioritised and what should be left untouched or merely enhanced.
How do you and your family use this room?
Before aesthetics, your home decorator will work with functionality in mind. Letting them know about how each room is used will be crucial to the limitations she must observe and can help her think of clever ways of how she can optimise your space with her designs.
Do you have any themes or design inspirations?
Interior stylists are highly visual people. Instead of telling them about what you want, it is best to show them through photos and printouts. Spend time on Instagram and Pinterest researching about pegs and design inspo. Print out everything and give a copy to your designer. This gives a clear and actual picture of what you have in mind.
Let’s discuss the working budget and target deadline.
It is recommended that you have these crucial pieces of information ready before meeting with your interior stylist. But don’t fret if you haven’t worked on the specifics of the budget and deadline yet. During the free consultation, request your interior stylist to provide a rough estimate of the cost and the typical working timeline based on your design requirements.
