What does an Interior Designer do?

Interior Design is designing the internal structure and layout of buildings to suit the client’s requirements. An interior designer will be a person qualified by training and/or experience to plan and supervise the design and execution of interiors and their furnishings, and to organise the various arts and accessories essential to their completion.

The professional interior designer provides a full consultancy service; will be multi-faceted; and will apply creative and technical solutions within a structure to achieve a built interior environment. The professional interior designer is intent on improving the psychological and/or physiological well being of their clients and achieves this by understanding their clients’ needs and seeking appropriate solutions. Not to be confused with interior decoration, interior design involves a multitude of technical, analytical, creative skills, and understandings of architectural elements.

Why should I use an Interior designer?

Using an interior designer will give you a professional view and expert advice. Using the services of an interior designer is sometimes sold in a way that we will save you money. Although this may be the case what we will do is be more productive and less wasteful with your money/budget; take away the worry and uncertainty and give you our experience and knowledge that we have had on projects just like yours and with clients just like you.

Why should I use Fusion Interior Design?

What do I get with ‘Creative Walkthrough’?

How often do you wish that you could sort out the interior design of your home? With Fusion this couldn’t be easier; our ‘Creative Walkthrough’ is the perfect opportunity to ask a professional interior designer as many questions as you like in your home, about your home. With our professional help Fusion can answer your problems, for example previous clients have asked….

  • Does the internal layout or extension plans really work?
  • How do I get this furniture layout to work?
  • What colours work best in this room?
  • I never use this room what can I do with it?

We are sure our ‘Creative Walkthrough’ service will be a real benefit for you as we can tackle 3-4 different areas in your home and this gives you great value. Some clients have even rearranged furniture on the spot!

How do I work out a budget / What are the fees involved?

Budget is a critical part of any design programme and a good starting point when agreeing the client/designer brief. It is only fair to brief your designer at the beginning of the project with some guidelines, as the plan develops, your designer should be working up a clear budget estimate to avoid these concerns. If the budget has overrun in some areas, it is then entirely possible and practical to ‘rob Peter to pay Paul’ and redistribute budget allocations.

A good designer can, if necessary, re-specify cheaper fabric and furniture alternatives while retaining the look. Some words of caution – your aim should be to preserve quality. Do not scrimp on the cost of making curtains, sofas and chairs, as this is a false economy.
