The Meeting, which is also called “Programming.” A pedestrian word for one of the most exciting parts of the experience, programming includes getting to know you and exploring your tastes: learning what you like, what inspires you, both for who you are now, and whom you want your environment to support you in becoming. This stage includes in-person meetings, phone calls, and emails, plus all of us pinning inspiration images to a shared Pinterest board.
When the initial consultations have been carried out successfully, and the designer understands your vision, it is time for the initial proposals and a rough estimate. These initial proposals consist of a very rough layout sketch and design implementation in which you can make the necessary amendments. As the time progresses, you can definitely see the final inklings of your interior design project in these proposals. It is only when you are satisfied with the changes that the final design is locked.
Once the final quotation and budget have been signed off by the client, the actual process of the renovation is set into motion. In this stage of the interior design process, the designer sets about curating all the relevant materials, gadgets and furniture that had previously been sourced and priced in the Bill of Quantities. It also includes all the physical renovation works that have to be carried out in order for the finalized design to be implemented. In Singapore, the designers must always be very careful about adhering to the HDB guidelines in order to deliver a truly successful interior design.
After weeks of physical labor, structural analysis and getting approval from the HDB authorities, you can finally see the vision becoming a true reality. The project delivery is basically the designer handing over the finalized outcome to the client. It is a truly satisfying moment to see how the end product awes the client and makes them happy.
