Have you ever wondered what's involved in the entire process of interior design?
Phase one involves gathering and analyzing information and making all the necessary preparations before starting the actual design job. To capture views, sunlight and make the best use of space an analysis is done to determine the best positioning of the furniture, fixtures, cabinetry and spaces. During this first phase, the budget and schedule will also be estimated.
The second phase goes under the sign of conceptual brainstorming and exploration. It starts with the creation of a concept diagram of the house interior and several rough design sketches.
The next phase is called Construction Documentation and during this period, the house interior design is translated into a technical language used by the contractor. Working Drawings and specifications are made that outline in detail all of the materials that will be used, where they will be positioned and how they will be installed.
The last phase in the interior design process is construction. During this stage, interior designers will answer questions, review submittals and shop drawings, and monitor the construction process to ensure that everything is done to specifications.
