Part 3 - Questions you should ask your Interior Designer: Full Redesign and Fit-Out


As an interior Designer, I spend a lot of time asking my clients questions to understand what their requirements are for the design, and how I can best make their vision come to life, however, as a client, there are key questions you can also ask your designer to ensure you get the the Refurbishment you want. In this blog I have listed seven essential components of an Full Redsign and Fit-Out, and questions you should ask to embark on a transformative journey that elevates your space and creates a home, retail, or commercial environment that reflects your style and personality.

1. Vision and Concept Development:
The cornerstone of any successful redesign is a well-defined vision and concept. Collaborate closely with your interior designer to articulate your goals, preferences, and desired outcomes for the space.

Key questions to ask:

  • How can we translate my vision into a cohesive design concept?
  • What innovative design solutions can we explore to achieve my desired aesthetic?

2. Spatial Planning and Layout Optimisation:
Evaluate the existing layout to identify opportunities for improvement and optimisation. Consider factors such as traffic flow, spatial organisation, and zoning to enhance functionality and usability.

Questions to consider:

  • How can we maximise space utilisation while maintaining a seamless flow throughout the space?
  • Are there any structural modifications required to optimise the layout?

3. Architectural Enhancements and Building Control:
Explore possibilities for architectural enhancements to elevate the aesthetic appeal and structural integrity of the space. Ensure compliance with building regulations and obtain necessary permits for structural modifications.

Questions to ask:

  • What architectural enhancements can enhance the overall design aesthetic?
  • How can we ensure compliance with building regulations and obtain necessary permits?

4. Material Selection and Finishes:
Carefully select materials and finishes that align with the design concept and contribute to the desired ambiance. Choose high-quality materials that offer durability and visual impact.

Questions to consider:

  • What materials and finishes best complement the design aesthetic and meet performance requirements?
  • Are there any eco-friendly options available?

5. Lighting Design and Technology Integration:
Illuminate the space with strategic lighting design to enhance mood and functionality. Incorporate advanced lighting controls and technologies for energy efficiency and ambiance control.

Questions to ask:

  • How can we optimise lighting design to create a dynamic and immersive environment?
  • What lighting fixtures and technologies can enhance energy efficiency?

6. Plumbing and Electrical Works:
Ensure that plumbing and electrical systems are up to code and capable of supporting the redesigned space. Address any necessary upgrades or modifications to accommodate new fixtures and appliances.

Questions to consider:

  • Are there any plumbing or electrical upgrades required for the redesign?
  • How can we ensure that all installations meet safety standards?

7. Contractor Selection and Fees:
Choose reputable contractors with experience in executing Interiors Redesign projects. Obtain detailed quotes and clarify thw Scope of Work and Project timeline.

  • What is the breakdown of fees for labour, materials, and additional services?
  • Can you provide references from previous clients?
  • What is the procedure for unforseen works or extras?
