Well, this is definitely possible!!!

You can certainly lower the costs for working with experienced interior designer in the process of getting a world class interior design for your home or office. and most interior designers would love to help you in doing so provided you are ready to put in efforts required. You can save costs with interior designer in following ways:

How can I minimize the costs with interior designer

Understanding entire designing process and be systematic about it:

This helps in saving costs a great deal, understanding what is expected at what stage in doing interior design for your home gives you clarity and you are better prepared with the information ahead of time. This saves most redundant communications like exchange of email, phone calls and visits and hence saves a lot of time and money.

Be very specific and 100% sure on what you expect from interior:

“when you have 100% clarity on what you want from interior design… it saves time, efforts, costs and reworks” 

This where most of the projects have tough time… Not being sure about what you want is sure way to spoil the interior design project for your property as you will be hesitant to make decisions, will questions each step and most often than not will result in rework!!!

Rework and corrections is not only costly but also frustrating for both you as a client and interior design professional.

Take your time, take opinion of those who matter to you. Share the simulation model or software version of interior with your contacts get opinion… Do whatever it takes but be 100% sure about what you expect from your interior design and how it will look like. This will definitely save you a lot of costs and time and make the experience of transforming your home a delightful experience for both you and interior designer professional.

 Be very clear on what you expect from interior design:

it is such an important thing to be 100% clear on what exactly you are expecting from the interior design of your property (home or office). When we are saying being 100% clear and being prepared, it means you have created a design requirement proposal. This includes, 

  • your preferred style and theme of interior design for your property
  • pictures and videos of designs you like
  • any specific functional expectations from rooms or areas
  • color preferences if any
  • design objects and decorative element preference if any
  • any other information that will help designer understand your choice and taste

preparing for interior design

Create a brief: description for your preferences of interior design and add above mentioned files in a folder.

Ideally, the project requirement description should be covering all the expectations and with relevant attachment from folder such that any designer should be able to get a fair idea about what exactly you are looking for just by reading the requirement description and referring to folder with other supporting files like photos and videos.

This step alone will save you significant time and cost for the interior design of your home or office!!! This will also avoid costly and frustrating reworks and corrections… ( Which generally happens in case of clients who are not clear with their requirement)

So, be prepared and keep your project requirement folder ready is the first and really important step is selecting right interior designer

Minimize the questions you ask to interior designer:

well, you bound to get a lot of questions, after all its about converting your home or office to a dream place but make sure you have done some Google search, read some articles, blogs or information sites on your question and if the questions still persists and seems to be very relevant then only proceed with actually asking to interior designer, The obvious reason for this is:

Experienced interior designer charge anywhere from Rs. 3,000 to Rs. 10,000 per hour

Every piece of communication (particularly when you are unprepared or unnecessary piece of communication) adds to the cost like: 

  • emails
  • phone calls and
  • meetings 

Hence it is important to minimize the questions and to and fro communications. You should to be prepared and systematic with entire procedure.

The more number of to and fro communications or (discussing something that changes the scope of the interior design) the more cost you would pay as fees to the experienced interior designer!!!

Yes, your doubts and questions need to be answered too and you should be open to better the existing design plan… So the best thing to do is,

Be prepared with the list of questions, sketches, designs, sample or photos, whatever you feel you need to discuss with the interior designer before the visit, get everything answered in one visit.
