How to get the most out of your consultation

Hints and tips to consider when planning your interior design project

To get the most out of your time with a colour consultant or interior designer, you'll need to do some homework to ensure your home and space works for you and reaches its full potential.

bullet.gif First of all be clear about what you want your consultant to provide for you and determine how much help you need. Is it simply choosing paint colours or do you need help with the whole scheme from selecting laminates and stone to carpet and accessories?

bullet.gif Start a scrapbook of all your ideas. Collect clippings of favourite schemes, an object d’art, a favourite piece of fabric or even a piece of china. All these things that you love will form a basis for the consultant to build around.

bullet.gif Don’t be afraid to use colour. Provided it is used in the correct proportion it can look stunning.

bullet.gif Don’t worry that your budget doesn't allow for a complete change as consultants can work with existing flooring and furniture, etc.

bullet.gif Don’t expect the consultant to come up with a solution on the spot. On most occasions, one or two schemes may be presented to you after the initial consultation.
