Understanding The Interior Design Process 101: Hiring Us
After inquiring and discussing with us, here comes another crucial part - you actually have to hire us to get things going! Things don't start from the discussion, it actually begins once you hire us. Most clients might think that the timeline we provide to them is fixed from the discussion. Little do they understand that our schedules depend on whoever hires us first.
That means, even if we're discussing a project today but you don't hire us until two weeks later, the timeline of the start of a project doesn't start until two weeks later!
It's quite reasonable and understandable that clients might need time to pick the interior design studio they want to work with, but clients must also be realistic - don't count the two weeks of 'deciding time' into the actual timeline of the project, if you haven't hired the interior designer yet.
To recap, here are the few simple stages to C Concept Studio's interior design process: 1. Inquiry 2. Hiring Us 3. Planning (Design and Drawing) 4. Start of Work (Renovation) 5. Installation of Furniture 6. Decor and Styling (Installation of Loose Items and Furniture)
Moreover, we can only give you the furniture and renovation costing after you've decided to pick C Concept Studio as your interior designer.
So, how does this 'hire us' actually work? In order to hire us, you will have to accept our final quotation (of course we'll go through this multiple times during discussion, so don't worry!) and make a deposit. Like the old saying goes, actions speak louder than words. You've got to make a deposit for the quotation for us to know that you've decided and are keen on working with us for your project.
Before actually hiring us, you'll probably have a thousand questions to ask, but here are a few to enlighten you on the pricing on the final quotation.
Firstly, the free consultation costs NOTHING. You read that right, it costs absolutely NOTHING! It's FREE! You can call us up (well, during working hours that is!) for free to discuss about all the questions you have.
Secondly, not all interior designers are the same. You would want to speak to us personally for a better break down of your quotation, but do understand there are things that just can't be calculated like 1+1.
Thirdly, we ask for a deposit because that's the most fair to everyone! By making a deposit, it builds trust among the client and the designer. The designer knows you're keen on making the project happen and can plan smoothly, and for you, believe it or not - it'll make you commit yourself to this project because you've spent money on it! It's a total win-win situation.
Don't fret too much from this point onward as C Concept Studio will be working hand-in-hand with you to create your perfect dream space!
