If you’re thinking of embarking on a renovation project, it is important that you have an idea of what you’re about to do. For homeowners who want to improve their living condition, renovation might seem like a herculean task.
Choosing an interior designer is quite easy these days. But as much as it might be tempting to jump into an interior design project and leave everything in the hands of the designer in the name of “surprise me”, it is quite advised that you have a concrete plan aforehand. That’s what we want to help you with.
Here are 5 things that you ought to do before embarking on an interior design project.
THE GOLDEN RULE: You Must Not Start Without A Budget
First things first, never embark on an interior design or renovation project without a budget limit for the project. When creating a budget, consider the time, manpower, and design. Make sure that you receive an estimated cost from your designer beforehand. This would give you a sense of accuracy for price, intended materials and estimated time. This would keep you in check as to how low and how high you can go with your spending.
TIME, they say, is money!
You must consider the estimated duration of your project before embarking on it. When creating a time expectation, consider delays, revisions and contingencies, so as to arrive at a realistic time frame.Always keep in touch with your designer for updates so as to avoid major revisions that can unduly delay the project.
Looking for chic, elegant design? Or funky, retro style? Now that your budget and time is set, you can now have a sit-and-talk with your designer. Try as much as possible to bring them into your mind. Showing pictures or samples of what you want would go a great deal.
MANPOWER is key!
Shorter timeframe often requires more manpower. This is why you should ensure that your designer values partnership and works with highly dexterous craftsmen.
