Do's & Don'ts 05/09/22
Interior design needs to serve a purpose but you’re also going for that jaw dropping look. Just like many things in life, following design pitch do’s and don’ts can help you achieve both in order to astonish your client. You’re welcome!
The things to do…
- When it comes to space renovating, re-measuring is the thing to do. The existing reconstruction plans are often outdated, which causes errors to sneak into the design. You get the picture: using those old plans are a no go here.
- Mood boards help establish a strong foundation to the look and feel of a project, so always make sure to present extensive and very varying drafts. The mood boarding process allows you to creatively align with your customers during the first preliminary design phase. And to eliminate 3,4 or 5 preliminary design rounds. Less is more you know.
- You must consult with your contractors, better too much than too little. They are the professionals with a working knowledge of many products. Contractors may be able to give some tips on how to incorporate certain products into a design.
- Meet all the customer’s requirements by listening to what he’s saying. With a variety of surfaces built for any purpose, you should provide a high quality and versatile material selection.
- Colorblocking is real. Today, all kinds of crazy stuff can be found in an inspiring interior. Combine unexpected colors, bold pieces and flooring to do the trick. Go for it, you only live once.
- Try to put together a new material and colour palette for each project. It’s so easy to fall back into combinations that worked for a previous one. So let your imagination go wild instead. Stay Studio unleashes its creativity on every project and never picked the same natural stone twice.
But please don’t…
- A cheap contractor is easy to find. Choose the best value contractor instead, since he will exceed your expectations. The differences in offers (market-based prices applied) are there for a reason: good quality has a price.
- Do not mix and match three different wood types in a room. You don’t want the interior to look like a traditional Austrian Stube.
- Design is about turning heads, but you don’t need to invent everything new to create an innovative interior. You could pay a king’s ransom for prototyping. So why not releasing your creative energy to experiment with existing elements?
- Don’t make sacrifices on functionality and techniques. Economical and future-oriented techniques are essential for the lifespan of a project.
