Preparing to Meet Your Interior Designer


When you first meet your interior designer at the Lake of the Ozarks, you'll want to have a few ideas in mind to point them in the right direction. Your space is so much more than just the colors on the wall and the accents on the shelves - it's about the way you move through your home, the reasons you use the space, and what you want to accomplish in the area. Here are a few things to think about before you sit down with your interior designer.

How Do You Use the Space?

What room are you wanting to redesign, and how do you use it? We'll need to know because this can play a huge role in our design. Your kitchen would need completely different design aspects and details than your media room, and we want to know how you intend to us this area of your home.

Does Your Space Feel Cramped or Underutilized?

If you don't feel that the flow of your space works for your lifestyle, telling us can help us to know whether you want to go a new direction with the layout. On the other hand, if you love the layout, but need assistance with the lighting or feel - this is important information as well.

What Type of Lighting Do You Need?

The lighting in your home can vary depending on what you intend to use the space for. You will need very different lighting for your craft and sewing room versus your entertainment room with the pool table and television.

What Do You Keep In This Room?

If we are helping you redesign an office and library, we would need to know how many books you want to keep in your space, and what types of work you will be doing. This can help us know exactly what types of furniture will be required, along with the style and feel you will need.

What Look Or Feel Do You Want In Your Space?

This is the most common part of interior design, and yet only one aspect. What colors do you like? What types of furniture styles catch your eye? Do you want a room themed around a shell you brought back from vacation or a space that is centered around your new couch? An inspiration piece is a great way to start.

What Do You Like About Your Space?

Do you have certain things about your room that you love? Please share that with us! We want to help create a place that you want to enjoy your time in. If you love the way your curtains look on your window, let us know so that we can leave them and make the design work with them - instead of removing them without knowing how much you like them.

What Will You Invest In Your Space?

This is an important part to think about before even going to speak with your interior designer. Whether you have a budget or unlimited resources, this can direct us in the design of your space.

How Involved Do You Want To Be?

Finally, how much input do you want in your space? Do you want to give direction at the beginning at let us loose in your space? Or do you want to be involved occasionally to help pick out larger pieces and help with some of the decisions? If we know from the start what your involvement will be, we can make sure to check in with you as much or as little as necessary.
