Whether you are furnishing an apartment or an office for the first time or simply rearranging the existing, first of all you need an idea. You can find different ideas by looking through catalogues and web sites which are; by the way, full of different decorating styles or you can hire an interior designer. Before you decide to do so, you should be aware that decorator and designer are two different occupations.
First of all, a decorator can be anyone without specific schooling, but who has that special touch and understands colours, fabrics and materials. On the other hand, a designer is an educated person with experience. They have knowledge in the field of architecture, building regulations and laws, colour specifications, textures, materials and lighting, and that person is educated for conceptual designs, they cooperate, communicate and organize work with contractors. They do all of this to meet the needs and demands of the customer.
Accordingly, interior designer is focused on the visual impression in an enclosed space by the proper and optimal use of colours, materials and light, taking into account the functionality and by creating a harmonious atmosphere. This does not necessarily include expensive designer furniture and determining room arrangement, but it is rather a procedure by which the designer adapts the space to your needs.
When making the conceptual design, the designer must take into account the lifestyle, gender and the age of the owner, which means that the designer has to talk to the owner, be a good listener, know the owner’s attitude, aesthetic affinities and above all, see and feel the space intended for planning.
What must the designer take into account?
One of the first and most important things is considering the entire space and all the private rooms in a home or an office. What are the dimensions and the structural arrangement of the rooms, what are the limitations, and above all, what potential does the space hide within itself? What is the purpose of the space – is it resting, family, fun or perhaps work? Some of the most practical designers´ considerations refer to choosing the light, seating arrangements and identification of all of the other needs of the client, such as storage space or workspace arranged in a way that will fully stimulate your senses.
Also, designer has to be very familiar with the needs of his clients, their working habits, their certain psychological and behavioural habits during the time they spend in their home or office, so that the entire design process can be in line with the client´s wishes.
