While planning out your home’s interior by yourself is a doable project, it’s a much better idea to hire a professional interior designer to make the most of your personal space and reflect your family's personality.
An experienced interior designer will make sure that every member’s needs and desires are met while still retaining both function and form in your home. When you meet with an interior designer, expect to hear the following questions, among others:
- What room do you use most? One of the first questions an interior designer will ask is what room you and your family spend the most time in. The answer reflects a space that can give the designer perspective on how you currently live, what matters to you and other important tidbits that can help with the rest of the job.
- Where do you wind down your day? Your response to this question will indicate what you either find relaxing or what you're lacking that your designer can help provide. This comfortable space should be reflective of you and your family's favorite activities once all is said and done.
- What room do most of your belongings end up in? Accessories such as phones, wallets, purses, jackets and more are often left in the same spot. Your interior design professional will use this information to determine high-traffic areas, where family members gather and ensure this space is optimized.
- What trinkets or items matter most to your family? Every home has items that really represent the members of the family. Do you love to read and have stacks of books scattered throughout the home? Are photos from family road trips displayed in the hallway? Is your prized possession an extensive art collection? Letting your interior designer know what your family really cares about can help guide the overall design.
