STAGES OF INTERIOR DESIGN

WITH INTERIOR ARCHITECT D'INTERIOR

Interior design with D' Interior Architect usually goes through several stages that enable a thorough understanding of the client's needs, development of appropriate solutions and finally the implementation of the project.

NEEDS ANALYSIS

At the beginning of the cooperation, the interior designer meets with the client to thoroughly understand their needs, preferences, lifestyle and expectations regarding the designed interior. Conversations are held, inspirations are viewed, and the space in which the project is to be made is analyzed.

As part of this stage, we ask you to complete the questionnaire, which has been meticulously prepared. The survey may include questions about style preferences, colors, functionality, budget, project schedule and other details that will help the architect better understand the client’s expectations.

In addition to the survey, the interior designer can also prepare a presentation on possible interior design. This presentation can include inspiration, examples of furniture, lighting, textiles, accessories, household appliances and other elements that can be included in the design. The presentation is intended to help the client imagine what elements of equipment can affect the final appearance and atmosphere of the interior.

INVENTORY

The next stage is the inventory, i.e. the exact measurement and photographing of the interior, taking into account the existing infrastructure, such as walls, windows, doors, electrical installations, etc. The inventory is aimed at having accurate technical data that will be used in further stages of design.

An accurate inventory is critical to interior design as it provides the interior designer with precise technical data on which to develop the design. The inventory also provides information about possible spatial and technical restrictions that should be taken into account when designing the interior.

FUNCTIONAL SYSTEMS

At the stage of functional layouts, the interior designer develops proposals for the arrangement and organization of individual zones and elements in the interior design. The main goal is to create a harmonious, ergonomic and functional plan that meets the needs and preferences of the client. 

To ensure the optimal design solution, I usually prepare 2-3 different proposals for functional layouts. Creating several variants allows the customer to choose from a variety of options, which allows him to find the most suitable layout that meets his needs and preferences. The final functional layouts are presented to the client, who has the opportunity to familiarize himself with the proposals and make any comments or changes. After accepting the functional layouts, we move on to further stages of interior design.

3D VISUALIZATIONS

After accepting the functional layouts, we proceed to the stage of creating 3D visualizations. These visualizations are extremely useful because they allow the client to fully see what the interior will look like after the project is completed.

Using advanced 3D rendering software, an interior designer creates realistic interior visualizations. These visualizations take into account all the details, such as furniture, lighting, colors, textures, finishes and decorations. They allow the client to better understand the space, atmosphere and aesthetics of the designed interior.

3D visualizations are also extremely helpful when making decisions regarding the choice of furniture, colors, materials or decorations. They give the client the opportunity to visualize various options, which makes it easier to make the right choices in accordance with his preferences and vision of the project.

MEETING WITH SAMPLES IN THE SHOWROOM

The next stage of cooperation in interior design is a meeting with samples in the showroom. This is an important meeting that allows the client to familiarize themselves with the different materials, finishes, fabrics, colors and other elements that will be used in the project.

During the meeting in the showroom, the interior designer presents the client with various samples and tries to adapt them to the vision of the project. These can be samples of floors, wallpapers, tiles, kitchen worktops, fabrics and other finishing materials. The customer has the opportunity to see, touch and assess the quality of these materials and their suitability for the designed space. .

Meeting with samples in the showroom is a valuable stage that contributes to a better understanding and visualization of the project by the client. It allows you to get acquainted with the materials and finishes and to make informed decisions about the final appearance of the interior.

WORKING DRAWINGS

When the 3D visualizations are accepted by the client, the interior designer creates detailed designs. These are detailed technical plans that contain information about dimensions, furniture arrangement, electrical and plumbing installations, finishes, lighting, etc. Detailed designs are necessary for contractors to precisely implement the project.

In the event that the project involves the use of furniture and built-in elements to size, the interior designer creates appropriate designs. These are detailed technical drawings that enable the production of furniture and fittings in accordance with the agreed design.

W przypadku, gdy projekt zakłada wykorzystanie mebli i elementów zabudowy na wymiar, architekt wnętrz tworzy odpowiednie projekty. Są to szczegółowe rysunki techniczne, które umożliwiają produkcję mebli i zabudowy zgodnie z ustalonym projektem.

EQUIPMENT LIST

At the end of the interior design, the interior designer can draw up a list of equipment, which includes proposals for furniture, lighting, decorations, textiles, fittings and finishing materials. The equipment list is a helpful tool for the customer to make the right purchases and select elements in accordance with the project.

Nadzór autorski

AUTHOR'S SUPERVISION OVER THE PROJECT

The next stage of cooperation in interior design is author’s supervision over the implementation of the project. Author’s supervision consists in monitoring the progress of works, ensuring compliance with the design and quality of workmanship, and providing necessary consultations and guidance to contractors. 

Author’s supervision is aimed at ensuring that the interior design is fully implemented in accordance with the vision of the interior designer. The architect visits the construction site, checks the progress of work, the quality of workmanship and compliance with the design solutions. If necessary, he also provides additional explanations, solves any problems and makes decisions related to the modification of the project.

Author’s supervision is an additional service that may be covered by a separate agreement and is associated with additional costs. The author’s supervision fee usually depends on the scope and difficulty of the work and on individual arrangements between the interior designer and the client.
