The role of an Interior Designer has many different aspects but is mainly based on providing a design and layout for an interior space. Interior Designers work to make space functional, and work to every client’s specific needs. From residential to commercial, Interior Designers look at the space and the function of the room to ensure that it works for their client in the right way.
The project process of an Interior Designer is relatively similar to that of an Architect; however, the main difference is in the actual design work. Architects develop more of a design concept of an external space, whilst and Interior Designer plans the internal spaces.
Much like an Architect, an Interior Designer will develop ideas with clients, before then moving on to the design stage. In this first stage the Designer will get an understanding of the clients needs and look at the briefs and outcomes for the project.
In the design stages, an Interior Designer will consider the materials to be used and conduct feasibility studies to ensure that the project is viable. In addition to creating a design, the Interior Designer will also source all of the furniture, fittings, and lighting, etc., whilst also producing sample boards.
In producing plans, your designer will create detailed working drawings, plans, and models using CAD software. Here at Acres Interiors, we use programs such as REVIT, which enables us to use some of the most recent design technology. During this stage your Interior Designer will also liaise with contractors, Architects, and engineers, to create a schedule of works and inform you of the time scales of your project.
If you have an Interior Design project we’d love to hear from you.
