What You Need To Prepare For An Initial Interior Design Meeting
Designing and revamping a space does not happen overnight. To be able to design an aesthetically functional home, the interior design firm in Dubai and the client would sit down a couple of time to conceptualize a design and create a final look of the space. But before both parties get to that part, they need to create a brief which will happen on the initial design meeting.
If you are meeting your interior designer soon, be sure to go over these pointers so you can be well prepared for the meeting:
- Ask the designer to send a list of questions
If this is your first time to meet the designer and you don’t have an idea how this meeting will go, ask him/her to send you a list of questions that you can answer beforehand. Doing so would save both of you time and you can immediately offer your insights to the same questions he/she will going to ask during the meeting. As much possible, ask him/her to send this a week before the meeting so you will have time to go over the questions and answer them.
- Prepare your pegs
Another thing that you need to prepare are your design pegs. Your interior designer would probably ask you this in advance. Better research on a couple of themes and pegs. Give him/her at least 5-6 pegs that he/she can use as references. The pegs or design themes that you will provide would give your interior design consultant a general idea on how you want the space to look like and what are the elements you want to be included on the design.
- List down your requirements and requests
Apart from the pegs, you also need to prepare a list of requirements and requests that you want to be incorporated on the design. These specifics are usually not seen in the visual pegs. You need to reiterate this to your interior designer and ask if these requests can be accommodated without ruining the design concept and overall look.
- Draft an initial timeline
Setting a deadline for a project is necessary, especially on the client’s part. A project with no definite timeline can go on for months and would cost clients more than what they allotted for the project. Try to set an estimated timeline and ask the designer if this is possible to accomplish given your requirements and budget.
