Meeting With Your Interior Designer? Here’s How to Prepare


Interior designers have an eye for space planning, aesthetics, and current trends. However, they rely on the client’s input concerning style preferences — especially during the first meeting — to guide their suggestions. Use these preparation tips to make the most of an initial meeting with an interior designer.

Make a List of Preferred Colors

Determining the right colors for your space is ultimately up to you. However, meeting with an interior designer armed with a list of hues that you love allows them to best use their training and skills.

Interior designers can create a palette that harmonizes with what you like in addition to establishing a fluid environment with furniture and permanent installations.

Bring Ideas for Major Installations

The biggest aspects of construction will involve choosing quite a few components, so having an idea of the style you prefer helps your designer better meet your needs. Some installations that you need to consider include:

  • Cabinetry
  • Visible Hardware
  • Flooring
  • Sinks
  • Toilets
  • Fixtures
  • Lighting

Interior designers can take these details and assist you in putting together a scheme that works well together room by room.

Meet With Samples on Hand

Give your designer a visual image of what you like most by taking pictures, cutting out magazine shots and bringing along some fabric and paint samples, if possible. You’ll get more out of the meeting and help streamline the process by sharing your vision.

Have a Realistic Budget

Unless you’re fortunate enough to not have a budget, it’s imperative that your interior design specialist understand what you are prepared to spend. They cannot help you achieve your project goals without having a budget in mind when suggesting ideas.

Make a List of Must-Haves

If there are certain colors, components or fixtures that you simply must have and aren’t willing to budge on, let your interior designer know right away. With this knowledge, they can help create spaces that incorporate your wants with functional and aesthetically pleasing implements.
