What Exactly does an Interior Designer do? February 06 2012, 0 Comments
When the design concept is approved by the client, the designer begins to start specifying the materials, finishings and furnishings. This process includes flooring, textiles, wall coverings, trim, lighting, furniture and more. Depending on the complexity of the project, the designer also might need to submit drawings for approval by a construction inspector to ensure that the design meets building codes. If a project requires structural work, the designer will work with an architect and/or structural engineer for that part of the project. They also hire the contractors to do technical work, such as cabinetry, lighting, plumbing, and electrical wiring. Interior Designer's offer complete project management for their customers and they are the liaison between the contractors and their clients.
Finally, the designer develops a timeline for the project, coordinates contractor work schedules, and makes sure work is completed on time. The designer oversees the installation of the design elements, and after the project is complete, the designer, together with the client, make follow-up visits to the site to ensure that the client is completely satisfied.
So....this is just an quick outline of what we Interior Designers do! It's a complicated process for the average homeowner to take on! So before you begin your project, call a reputable Interior Designer like Pezzo Bello Interiors, to help you through it from start to finish.
