After you have made contact with our interior designer via our website contact page or through social media platforms. Kirstie would then offer a free phone consultation to ask any initial questions. This starting point is critical as we discuss thoroughly your home decoration design ideas, taste and options, understanding your space and property and any initial essential space planning. Kirstie’s objective as an interior designer is to build a relationship with you and truly open up your design ideas and preferences. Take this time to answer any enquiries or questions you may have, Kirstie, will want you to feel confident about the possibility of your project and passionate about this exciting stage of your life!
It is also essential to establish a budget within this time or at least have an idea of how much you are willing to contribute to your interior design project. This will give Kirstie an indication on sourcing the ideal and best products for your specification, and avoiding the risk of any additional costs due to a decision change. Regarding the troubling topic of budget, we will always suggest weighing up and prioritising. Bathrooms and kitchens are usually the areas which we should care in regards to using high-quality finishes and appliances, as we want to avoid long-term wear and loss of quality. With this in mind consider what the goal and requirements are within your residential renovation.
After this initial meeting, Kirstie will start to put a mood board together to give you an idea of the fabric and colour that will work for your project. This is usually the exciting part of the project as you can start to see how the colours enhance the room and express your interior design. When the colour, fabrics, carpets and fittings have been agreed, Kirstie will then, if required, start to plan your home decoration.
