The first step in design consultation begins with visiting the property. This is where your needs and requirements are discussed, photos are taken, and a brainstorming session takes place going over ideas, suggestions, and advice.
The process of developing ideas to solve specified design problems. The concept is developed in phases, from formless idea to precise details in an appropriate form with supportive content and visuals.
Space planning is the core of any interior design. It is usually the allocation and division of interior space to meet the requests and needs of an individual client whether they are looking to plan a residential house, and office building or even a restaurant.
Perhaps furniture matters the most when the design is implemented as furniture brings function to space. Analyzing how a space will be used and what activities will take place at that space marks the programming phase of interior design where furniture is involved. Function determines which furnishings (appliances, fittings, and accessories) are necessary for the usage of space. In furniture selection, the users and activities are considered first.
General Supervision consists of scheduled visits to the site to supervise workers, deliveries, and progression throughout the period of implementation to completion. This includes coordinating with other professionals, such as contractors, architects, engineers, and plumbers, to ensure job success.
Towards the end of the feedback loop, optional photorealistic renderings are provided to help the client better understand what the product will look like. Interior renderings can make the internal design process more effective. Renderings should be done to insure that the client and everyone working on the design is happy with materiality, quality of light, color, and functional aesthetics.
