The Steps of an Interior Design Project
PHASE 1 - THE BEGGINING
The incipient phase of the project where we analyze the space and measure it to know every detail that will later contribute to our arrangement.
Current Plan: Also known as the Revealed, it is the plan of the incipient situation from which you can go with the proposals for re-partitioning or demolition where it is the case.
Questionnaire: A set of questions so we know what style, color palette, space functions and what activities will be present in our space.
PHASE 2 - THE SUGGESTIONS
The functional phase of the arrangement where we analyze the furniture, its relation to the use of the space, and the capitalization of the remaining space according to different proposals made by us.
Choosing a Masterplan: We will choose either a furniture proposal that best serves your needs, or we will join different ideas found in all the proposals in a final one.
PHASE 3 - THE CONCEPT
The broadest phase of the project in which we set the layout from the whole picture to the smallest detail.
Choosing the final solution: The 3D process will complete with the final solution, and so the whole project goes into the right line to be delivered.
PHASE 4 - THE RECEPTION
The final phase of the fitting out project where all the plans are submitted for bidding.
Finishing Plan: The 2D Plan of the walls and ceiling where the finishes to be executed with execution and depths will be represented where appropriate.
Plan walls: Plan 2D with agreed architectural compartmentation so that the execution team will actually affect the construction of new walls, their demolition, etc.
Electrical plan: Plan 2D with the location of electrical installations, electrical circuits and other equipment related to the arrangement.
Get Acquisitions: We will also teach you a list of decorative items, furniture to buy and the lighting system that appears in 3D images and is going to be purchased.
PHASE 5 - THE EXECUTION
The post-design phase in which the execution team with the information received from us will work out our designing project.
Interior Design, between Art and Profession
More than likely, we have all experienced at least once in our life interior designing problem, choice of material, lighting system and lighting fixtures, furniture and much more. Every time I have a new customer I aim to find as many things that are characteristic of it, those things that I can integrate within the interior planning and which may influence my final design solution. In order to have a better shaped idea, usually I require an example of an interior that both the beneficiaries agreed, in case they are husband and wife, or the beneficiary, if he/she lives alone, or groups in other cases.
The Importance of Space Proportions in an Interior Design Project
The first mistake is choosing an interior design example that does not comply with the proportions of your own space. In other words, either in the image the room is way too high, and the chandelier makes all the money, and in fact we only have a Studio whether the image is in the attic of the house, with lots of wood and with fireplace, with broad and generous windows through which we can see the Alps, carrying us with thinking about Switzerland, and the space planning is a simple apartment furnished with small windows, to many walls, and poorly configured. Is time for me to explain the theory of fruit salad and the fact that in a small bowl may not get all the fruits for making the salad; this would lead us to two solutions: we become selective or we start looking for a bigger bowl. 50% of those with whom I had philosophized on the fruit bowl theory I had to interrupt the conversation ... hmm, greedy people!
The Consistency of Style in an Interior Design Project
The second mistake that I often meet is choosing the objects fitting before being made fittings, or at least its design overall. After a pretty interesting conversation with newcomers I received by e-mail a list of objects that they want kept in the new design. I don't think that would be a mistake, but it shouldn’t resemble the ones above...
Ventilated Space with a Professional Interior Design
The fourth mistake is related to over-crowding. The space needs to breathe and to emanate a state of mind, a mood. Thus, with many different colours, textures, shapes or lights we can give an ambient its own personality. But be careful; too much personality is not always desirable.
