Ask These Questions BEFORE Designing Your Space

Ask These Questions BEFORE Designing Your Space


Hi there, it’s Kristy Malone
from Refining Design, Inc. Today I want to talk to all you modern day gentleman out there once again and talk to you about
the importance of knowing what you want to do with your space before you just start jumping in and trying to find a design scheme. So although I have a
lot of ideas in my mind about what could work
and what couldn’t work, what really it comes down to is you. I have to listen to my client intently and make sure that I
am getting to know them exactly enough to bring together a style that I think is going to be uniquely you. So how do I do that? Well, I’ve compiled an
extensive questionnaire and it’ll ask questions like How do you use the space? It could be a bedroom. It could be a living room or
it could be a dining room. And a lot of times they are
used for multipurpose items. So a lot of times people
will do their work at their dining table. A lot of people might have
their kids do homework there. It’s multifunctional and so I need to know all of those things
before designing a space. So the questionnaire includes
how that space is used, how often is it used, how many people might be
using that space at a time. Is it for entertaining? Is it for movie watching? Even in a bedroom, some
people do their work and have their desk in there
so we need to know everything. We need to know what types of patterns and colors you are drawn to. And places that you like to shop. That gives me a good idea as
to what your style might be and to what your budget
range might be as well. So all of those things
put together, along with having numerous meetings with my clients and getting to know them super well, I think that’s definitely
a recipe for good design. Having a good relationship
with your designer/decorator and getting to know them
at a different level that, again, creating a
space will be uniquely you. If you want to have a
look at my questionnaire, you can feel free to do that
even if it’s for your own use and you just want to
kind of nail things down and put things on paper, it’s actually a good
exercise for everybody. Feel free to contact me at [email protected] or watch next time for my upcoming video. Thanks so much and have a wonderful day.
