Every industry has their own secrets that they don’t want their clients to know. Interior decorators have their own secrets for designing for homes, public spaces, and other projects. We have collected seven of the biggest secrets for interior design that interior decorators need you to know. Keep reading to find out about the secrets.
Got A Budget? Let Us Know.
Unless a budget is specifically discussed when a contract is signed with an interior designer, it is often assumed that the designer can spend any reasonable amount of money. This might be no problem for major corporations like Microsoft or Google but what about the smaller companies? If you have a specific budget, make sure to let the designer know before they start to work.
Don’t forget to also mention if your budget is slightly flexible for the right design.
It isn’t a secret that interior designers are people too. They have their own likes and dislikes. These will influence their choices in design and furniture. That is, unless, you specifically mention a style that you want. If you have a company theme or idea in your head, make sure to let your interior decorator know so that they can craft what you have in mind.
The end goal is to make the client happy, and the best way for that to happen is for the client to provide as much detail as they have in their minds.
Interior Designers Have More Than One Client
Unless you are paying A LOT of money or have a relatively new designer, they are going to have more than one client at a time. This is how decorators and other contractors make money. While some contractors may make it seem like they are never around, others manage their time and contact perfectly.
Good interior designers provide contact information for themselves so that clients can get ahold of them no matter what contract they are at. They also make every effort to make YOU feel like the most important client that they have.
Connections Exist In Any Industry
It Is true that any industry has connections that exist that benefit everyone. Sure, that may include referral bonus, and many people stop at that point to say that that isn’t fair. What they don’t realize, is those same connections manage to get office furniture and other decorations for below the average price.
You end up saving money through these connections. Referral and usage deals like this also help to keep designer’s fees lower, further saving you money.
You Can Say No
Did you know that interior designers actually expect you to say no or at least offer your opinion? This sounds weird to many people, interior designers put a lot of work into each of their designs so your opinion matters. An interior designer wants their clients to be happy. If a client isn’t happy, the designer wants to know. This allows them to seek input on the design and find what they can do to create the perfect office design for you. So if there is something that you do not like, let your interior designer know.
