When you approach an Interior Designer for consultancy, this is what you should expect.
Get a brief from the client of what interior concern or challenge they are facing. How they have tried to solve them in the past and where they are with the problem.
Once the issue at hand has been discussed, the next step is to reassure the client, how you can assist them. The designer can offer a few suggestions on a possible solution.
The designer puts together a design brief with all the information the client has given. Now that everything is clear and well understood, the designer then requests the client for a physical visit to the concerned place of discussion, referred to as a site visit.
On-site, the designer is required to have a tape measure, camera, notebook, and pen. The client or representative then shows the designer the problem areas as discussed before.
The designer takes the necessary notes, photographs, and measurements of the concerned spaces and goes back to the studio with them.
Back in the studio, the designer gathers all the information collected from the site. The designer then adds onto the design brief a mood board to give the client an impression of the solution. If the client is happy with the design consultation, it is a win-win for both parties.
The ball is now on the client’s court to decide whether to continue with the Interior designer. The consultation ends when the client chooses to onboard the Interior Designer or otherwise.
