What is the Interior Design process? 

Anchor 1

A lot of the time when clients get in touch telling us they want to embark on the renovation journey, we recommend taking one step at a time. If you are ready to do this and would like the help of an interior designer, then this is how we would do it at our studio:

Design Spatial planning. After we meet and we discuss your needs, I'll explore design options from the floorplan you would provide. I assess the space we have and offer options on furniture layout to maximise the use of space. Basically, let's see what we have and how we can enhance this space so you have a better flow, storage and comfort. 


Design Concept. Let's look at some inspirational images you would gather for me to explore. From those, I will see the style you like, the colours that you feel attracted to and how these merge into something we can uniquely create for you and your space. For this, we would have looked at the space, the natural light, and how everything feels in it.


Design Visuals. Let's combine the Spatial Planning and Concept into 3D renders for you to visualise what we are trying to achieve. This gives us a sense of space and flow.

Design Product sourcing. We also look at suitable products for the space, style and budget. These products range from furniture pieces, to lighting products, and finishes like floor and wall tiles, wallpaper, stone, brassware, sanitaryware, etc. 


Tradesmen Briefing. When we reach this phase called 'Tradesmen Briefing', we should have a pretty good idea of what we want to achieve with the space. With a design in hand, visuals and fixtures and fittings, and finishes adding to the build (before furniture placement), a contractor or building firm can quote for the project. 

More often than not, clients feel the need to contact a contractor as soon as they believe to be ready to take on a renovation project. But the reality is that the tradesmen or contractors need to know what they are quoting for. So having a plan with a design carefully thought out is the best way to approach the project. 

If you hire a designer (and an architect beforehand if you are thinking of a major structural renovation) and plan this accordingly, the contractor will be able to quote based on that design and the cost will be more accurate. The contractor will know that you want to wallpaper a downstairs toilet, that you want to tile the shower area but not the entire bathroom walls, that you are adding wall lights in the hallway because you would like to create ambiance in that area, that you bespoke joinery is going to be added to cleverly use the spaces that otherwise would have been tricky to use. So trust us when we say 'Plan it one step at a time. Don't rush it but think it through and it will be great'. 

Implementation. At our studio, we offer the implementation service when we are working on the entire project. 
Once the tradesmen or contractors have provided costs that you are happy with based on our design, we move on to this phase called Implementation.

We have identified the products, fixtures and fittings, materials or finishes we will be using, so now we start creating detailed specifications for the contractors to use as guidelines. This shows the design with more information on the positions of lights, tile patterns, wallpaper fitting and details that make the design unique. This information is invaluable for contractors as when they have a query, we can tackle it whilst revising these specifications. 
During this stage, we place orders for products and materials, keep control of stock, availability, etc. And also during this phase, we provide site visits to answer queries from contractors and project managers of the build and oversee the works to ensure the design is being followed.
