What You Need to Do Before an Interior Designer Works on Your Home

Once you've decided to hire an interior designer, there are a few ways to get your home prepared before the work begins. These preparations are essential to helping your designer get the work done as you keep your daily routine. Here are some tips to get you started.

Consider your timelines

Do you have a big family event coming up? If so, then your home will not be the best place to host a family gathering during any major renovations. Think well in advance about when you can commit to working with your interior designer.

Decide on themes and colours

Keep in mind that you can provide your input on your preferences for themes and colours. It will make the designer's job a lot easier. Also, you won't be left with any unpleasant surprizes.

Decide what you want to keep

Some items in your home carry sentimental value and you may not feel ready to dispose of those items. Be sure to let your interior designer know what items you want to keep so that they can be included in the space being designed. Although interior designers are experts in design, they are not the ones who make all the decisions. Your individual tastes and preferences are a large factor of the design process.

Tidy up your space

An interior designer's job is not meant to interrupt your life. You also don't want to be in the way of the work being done. That being said, it's best to know what items you'll need on a daily basis and keep them out of the designer's work space. Be sure to keep small children and pets away from the work space as well.

Consider having an alternative place to stay

It may seem next to impossible to rearrange your life while major renovations are taking place in your home. You may want to consider staying with family or friends who live close by. If that's not an option, then you may want to factor hotel accommodations into your budget.

Making these preparations are essential toward the collaborative work that is done. The work is more likely to be done within your projected timelines so that you and your family can be closer to enjoying the home you've dreamed of.
