What To Expect From An Interior Design Consultation With Spark Interiors

Consulting with an interior designer is a key step in creating the space of your dreams. Each designer approaches this phase of a project differently. At Spark Interiors, we take a unique approach that allows us to provide value to the client even if they ultimately decide to go another direction with the project. Because our interior design consultations involve design expertise and work the client can keep and use at will, we prefer to use the term “design session” to describe the introductory phase of working with Spark Interiors. Let’s talk about how our design sessions differ from other interior design consultations.

Traditional Design Sessions With Spark Interiors

We can provide a variety of different services in our initial interior design consultation. In most cases, we find that clients reap the most value from a select few foundational services that require the expertise of an interior designer.

  • Space Planning - Space planning involves an in-depth analysis of how a particular space is going to be used and what can be done to accommodate the desired functions most effectively. Often, a space that doesn’t function well is what inspires a client to seek out an interior designer. When it comes to space planning, we can focus on two different areas - walls and other structural elements or furniture and fixtures - both of which can make dramatic differences in how a space functions.
  • Paint Color Selection - Color is one of the most overwhelming steps in any interior design project. Paint color selection can be a highly-beneficial way to use an interior design consultation because it not only narrows the playing field but also takes into account the expertise of an individual who has an in-depth understanding of how color can affect a space.
  • Problem Solve With Unique Solutions - As we mentioned previously, a space that doesn’t function well is one of the most common reasons clients seek the expertise of an interior designer. In a design session with Spark Interiors, we can help you identify and solve problems with the functionality of your space in creative and beautiful ways.
  • Detailed Budget Analysis - Feeling unsure of how much an interior design project might cost can prevent many potential clients from even sitting down for an interior design consultation. Budget analysis can offer exponential value to a client considering a project by offering insight into how much their desired outcome might cost and how they can bring their dream space to life.

That’s just the beginning of the value you can gain from a design session with Spark Interiors.
