Interior Design FAQ

What does an interior designer do?

Interior designers are the professionals who make interior spaces (residential / commercial / etc) functional, safe, and aesthetically pleasing by determining space requirements and selecting the ideal colours, lighting, textures, furnishings and decorative materials. Interior designers are qualified professionals who understand construction and technical building documentation, and are aware of regulations, guidelines and universal accessibility standards.

What are the advantages of having an Interior Designer in the project team?

An Interior Designer will work with you to custom design the interior space to meet your brief. We look at the interior planning and flow of spaces to make sure they work for your needs. As interior designers we specialise in the specification and sourcing of all interior finishes. We take into consideration all design aspects of an interior that affect the way the interior presents at the end of construction.

When is the right time to engage an Interior Designer?

We like to be involved as early as possible on any project. It is desirable to be involved at a stage where we can work with the other consultants and still have input into the 3-dimensional space planning.

What is Aged Care Interior Design?

Aged Care Interior Design is a specialisation around designing interiors for buildings where aged people reside and require differing levels of nursing care. It involves designing interiors that support the requirements for those residents to move as freely and unimpeded through the spaces as possible.

How do you charge?

Consultation fees are quoted based on the Scope of Works provided for a project. If a consultation appointment is required to establish the brief, we would charge an hourly rate to meet, discuss and establish the scope of work. Following the confirmation of the scope of work we supply a fee proposal which would be either lump sum $ or an estimate of hours to be charged at hourly rates dependent on the type of project. Our years of experience bring the advantage of being able to efficiently create a brief for your interior design project. We work with our clients to establish budgets for the interior design work before signing off on the completed design.
