Understanding The Interior Design Process 101: The Quote
Updated: Nov 5, 2019
"How much?" is a common question faced by interior designers. What clients expect when refurbishing their home is a fixed rate and price given by their interior designer. Little do you (as a client) know that it's not as easy as 123.
First, what we need to understand is that interior design isn't a service that has a fixed price tag. It's not possible for an interior designer to slap a RM10,000 price tag on the deal and call it a day.
There are a few procedures from the start to completion of a project that clients need to know and understand.
There are a few simple stages in C Concept Studio's interior design process:
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)
So, where does "the quote" fall in? It falls right on the first part of the process, which is the inquiry. In the inquiry, it's the part where the interior designer and you (the client!) meet and discuss all things important. Frankly speaking, it's one of the most exciting parts of the entire process. While the designer is getting to know you and understanding your tastes, this part also includes knowing your budget and discussing about the quotation.
And in order for a designer to give you a quote, you'll have to give them proper and complete information for them to at least give preliminary quote. Some of the details include property type and what you want to renovate. Do you own a single-story home? What's the size of your home? Which part of your home are you looking to renovate? Be prepared to know the answers to such questions when discussing with your interior designer!
Another important point to highlight is that there's no 100% accuracy to the costing, especially if there's no fixed design. We can definitely estimate but the final costing can only be given once the actual design is out. After the inquiry, you will need to hire us and then only then we come up with the renovation and furniture costing!
As an interior design studio, we need to understand all of your inspiration, tastes, and all other details in order to give you a preliminary quote.

首先，我们需要了解的是，室内设计并不是具有固定价格标签的服务。 对于室内设计师来说，他们不会轻易在交易中打出RM10,000的价格标签。 从项目的开始到完成，客户需要了解和理解一些程序。
C Concept Studio的室内设计过程包括几个简单的阶段：
坦白说，这是整个过程中最令人兴奋的。 当设计师逐渐了解您的品味时，这部分内容还同时包括了解您的预算并一起讨论报价。为了使设计师给您适当的报价，您必须给他们完整的信息，以便他们能给出初步报价。 一些细节包括房屋类型和您想要装修的内容。您拥有的是单层房屋？ 房屋的大小是多少？ 您想翻修房屋的哪一部分？ 与室内设计师进行讨论之前，请准备好答案。
要强调的另一个重要点是，在还没确定设计的情况下，是不可能有100%准确的成本计算。 我们只可以做出估计，但是最终预算只有在实际的设计出来之后才能给出。 咨询后，您必须雇用我们，然后我们才可以在咨询后给出装修和家具费用！作为一个专业的室内设计工作坊，我们需要了解您的所有灵感，品味和其他细节才能为您提供初步的报价。
