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.
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?
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
Don’t be afraid to use colour.
Provided it is used in the correct proportion it can look stunning.
Don’t worry that your budget
doesn't allow for a complete change as consultants can work with existing flooring and furniture, etc.
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.
Do discuss the final scheme with
other family members sharing the space. Everyone must be happy with the outcome.
