Advise the client on the topic of interior design:
Many clients are actively involved in the interior design process. Interior designers must answer questions and gather information from the client to meet the needs and personal preferences of the client. Working closely with the client to analyse the brief and to develop the design and spatial arrangement.

Once the designers have an idea of how the space should function, they mesh those requirements with the client’s desired aesthetic and atmosphere, to create a concept for the space. For a designer, communicating the concept is akin to storytelling.

Did You Know ?

Some interior design components never go out of style. For example, a large amount of natural light is always considered to be an asset. Good interior design involves elements of psychology. For example, trying to “trick” the eye into thinking a room is larger than it actually is.

Work within the given budget for the client:
The budget is a limiting factor that must be taken into consideration in any interior design project. It is the responsibility of the interior designer to find out that budget and stay within the expected parameters. Establishing a contract, putting expectations into writing and communicating clearly with the client can help the interior designer to work within these parameters.

Create detailed interior design plans and then present them to the client for approval:
No design is ever implemented without the approval of the property owner or job supervisor. Sometimes interior designers come up with very detailed plans only to have them refused by the client. When this happens, the client and designer must work carefully to re-work plans and devise a plan that works. Holding meetings with the client to present ideas, mood boards, sample materials, colours, layouts and costings and amending designs where necessary.Using computer assisted design (CAD) to prepare detailed drawings and occasionally making 3D models.
