Let The Designer Do The Brain Work!
The science that deals with the principles and criteria of validity of interference and demonstration are basically what we call logic. Same goes with interior design. But unfortunately, there is a general misconception that interior design is only artwork especially the clients, oh yes the CLIENTS! It’s not all about placing furniture and painting walls. It is much MORE! Interior designers are taught to understand the needs, moods and almost every criteria of a client, wish they could digest that. Designing a room is not like wearing a piece of jewelry which you could wear for a while, instead, it’s 24-hour maintenance and usage. They design spaces keeping in mind that a room is going to be used for working, playing, enjoying, sitting and chatting, watching tv, relaxing, etc. Marvelous designers prioritize these needs of the people that come to them for consultancy. It is said by a wise man,
”when an idiot asks for advice, he expects you to tell him what he wants to hear”
No offense, but yes when someone hires an Interior designer he/she should keep room for accepting and approving what the designer has to say, rather than expecting him to tell what the client has in mind. The easiest way is to tell your designer what you “want” & what you “need” & let the designer do rest of the job.
There is a misconception in our society about hiring interior designers that once they are hired the clients tend to consider them slave to whom they are paying money to get the work done which is professionally unethical. According to the codes of conducts of a designer, it is their duty to make people aware of the right and wrong options.
On the other hand, the work of a true professional interior designer is a combination of DESIGN and FUNCTIONALITY. Space design and execution is ultimately due to the mental juncture of a client and a designer. The better one communicates and accepts the one with a better knowledge of the field they better would be the results. Key is, trust you designer!!
