Interior Design Process
At InnoDez we have developed a framework that we follow in terms of our interior design services.
This is the first stage where the project is defined in very general terms. We identify the client, the nature of the project, location and the purpose of the space as well as the extent of the design work.
In a residential interior design project, we may develop a profile for each of the principal residents, including information such as their age and sex, hobbies, habits, style and color preferences, and an inventory of possessions and furnishings that need to be accommodated in the space.
We analyze the collected data and compile the results in a program document that outlines design problems and the respective solutions. The client has the responsibility to review and approve the document.
Once the client approves the program, the conceptual design phase begins.
Our team brainstorms design solutions (verbal, sketched or written), filters out unworkable ideas and finally refines the best solutions and concept designs.
The Concept design would be in the form of quick sketches and graphic visualizations of these main ideas – portraying the siting, orientation, space allocations, circulation patterns, spatial and activity relationships from a variety of perspectives, color schemes and other important details of the proposed design.
This is the part where one or more design concepts are presented to the client from our interior designers in California and Texas. This is generated as a proposal awaiting a review, feedback and ultimate approval. The proposal may consist of:
- The Design Concept Statement and supporting conceptual drawings, including scaled floor plans showing furniture placement; mood boards showing color, materials, and finishes.
- Depending on the scale of the project, the proposal may include additional sketches, perspective drawings, full-color renderings, 3-D models or computer simulations.
- Time frame showing events in sequence and a proposed completion date.
Final Design and Documentation
This is the last stage of our interior design services, where our staff generates final working drawings. The finalized drawings include perspective drawings, site plans, floor plans, reflected ceiling plans (showing lighting and ceiling fixtures), sections, elevations and detailed drawing of architectural elements (e.g. doors and windows) and design elements (e.g. paint, trim, wall coverings, and window treatments), along with all drawing notes necessary for the construction and installation of the design on location.
A written document containing all the necessary specifications is also provided. This document provides a detailed description of the furniture pieces and materials to be acquired, as well as schedules that list the types of finishes and placement of architectural and design elements, carefully reviewed by our interior designers in California and Texas.
