How To Choose The Best Interior Designers
Choosing the right person to decorate your place is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. It has to be the right fit, you must trust their decisions and of course, they must be in tune with your taste. So how do you get down to the task of choosing the perfect interior designer? Here are some tips from us.
Understand you needs and identify your preferences
Start with the foundation. First understand your own sense of style. Ask yourself some basic questions and it’s important to be honest here. Don’t go with what the latest trend is, but what you’re comfortable with. What kind of space do you want to create for yourself, which designs work for you the best, what’s your budget.
Have your vision board ready. If you don’t know what you want, it will be quite a task to find someone who will create your vision into reality.
Start exploring and probing for designer portfolios
Once you have a sense of how you want your place to be done up, look up some designers and check out their portfolio. This is a very important step. The portfolio will give you a sense of their versatility and if their style corresponds with your own.
Many interior designers tend to have a signature look, but the good ones should be able to recreate the kind of look you want and translate it well. Your personalities and priorities must align, to a comfortable extent.
To make it easier, all the best interior designers from across the world, have added their portfolios on Mansionly, here.
Have a face-to-face meeting with the designers
Once you’ve gone through various portfolios, it’s time to meet the designers personally. Have a list of questions ready according to your needs. Talk to them about the budget, timeline, their way of working, how they will work with your space and present your ideas to them. Be receptive to their feedback and keep an open mind. You never know, someone might just provide a better alternative for what you have in mind!
It’s important to have a fair idea about what you want, regarding style and budget, but don’t be closed-minded to different possibilities. Be aware of how close you want to work with the designer as well. It’s important to establish what kind of work relationship you will have.

Ask for referrals and look into online reviews
Ask the interior designers questions about past clients they have worked with. If they can give you referrals; follow up with them to ask about their experience with the designer. Designing your home can be exciting but also a little overwhelming at times. It is important you choose the right kind of person to share this journey with.
Take a look at the technology they use
Modern homes need a modern approach and that’s why it is important to ask the interior designers you choose what technology they are making use of. It doesn’t just help them plan your space better, but also enables you to see things through much in advance. Better the technology, the better are the interiors.

Compare notes taken from different designers
After meeting with prospective designers, compare your notes. Make a list of pros and cons about the designers. Things to consider will be the cost estimates given by the designers, the time they commit to, and of course, their understanding of your sense of aesthetic. It’s your space, and be careful while considering these points. Trust your gut in this process.
It is important for you to be comfortable with the designer, so you can share your ideas openly. With the amount of time and money involved, it’s not worth it if you’re not fully comfortable. Be patient in the process, after all all good things take time! And if you follow these tips, it will surely be worth the wait.
