Part 1 - Questions you should ask your Interior Designer : Design Makeover


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 makeover you envisage. In this blog I have listed seven essential components of an interior design makeover and questions you should ask to embark on a transformative journey that elevates your space and creates a home, office, or commercial environment that reflects your style and personality.

  1. Define Your Style: The first step in any interior design makeover is to define your personal style and aesthetic preferences. Consider the overall look and feel you want to achieve, whether it's modern and minimalist, cosy and rustic, or elegant and traditional. Questions to ask your interior designer:
  • How can you help me define and refine my design style?
  • What are some current design trends that align with my aesthetic preferences?
  1. Assess the Space: Evaluate the existing layout, architecture, and functionality of the space to identify areas for improvement and enhancement. Take note of any architectural features, structural elements, and spatial constraints that may impact the design process. Questions to ask your interior designer:
  • How can we optimise the layout and flow of the space to maximise functionality and comfort?
  • Are there any structural changes or modifications that need to be addressed during the makeover?
  1. Colour Palette and Mood: Select a cohesive colour palette that sets the mood and ambiance for the space. Choose colours that complement your style and evoke the desired atmosphere, whether it's calming and serene or vibrant and energetic. Questions to ask your interior designer:
  • How can we use colour to create a cohesive and harmonious design scheme?
  • What are some trending colour palettes that would enhance the overall aesthetic of the space?
  1. Furniture and Furnishings: Carefully curate furniture and furnishings that not only reflect your style but also meet your functional needs. Invest in quality pieces that are both stylish and comfortable, and consider the scale and proportion of each item in relation to the space. Questions to ask your interior designer:
  • What furniture arrangements would optimise the use of space and enhance traffic flow?
  • Can you recommend durable and sustainable furniture options that align with my design preferences?
  1. Lighting Design: Illuminate the space with strategic lighting design to create ambiance, highlight focal points, and enhance functionality. Incorporate a combination of ambient, task, and accent lighting to layer the illumination and add depth to the design. Questions to ask your interior designer:
  • How can we incorporate natural light and artificial lighting to enhance the mood and functionality of the space?
  • Are there any energy-efficient lighting solutions that would minimise electricity consumption?
  1. Textures and Materials: Introduce a variety of textures and materials to add visual interest and tactile appeal to the space. Mix and match different textures, such as wood, metal, glass, and fabric, to create depth and dimension in the design. Questions to ask your interior designer:
  • What textures and materials would complement my design style and add richness to the space?
  • Can you recommend eco-friendly and sustainable materials for flooring, furnishings, and finishes?
  1. Accessories and Décor: Put the finishing touches on your interior design makeover with carefully curated accessories and décor elements. Select artwork, rugs, pillows, and decorative accents that reflect your personality and tie the design together cohesively. Questions to ask your interior designer:
  • How can we incorporate personal touches and meaningful items into the design to make the space feel truly unique?
  • Are there any innovative and creative ways to display artwork and accessories to enhance visual impact?
