Set Your Budget

Setting a budget will make the hiring process easier. If you know your budget, and let the designer know about it, they can think that specific way

It will save time from both ends. But setting the budget on your own may seem confusing. You can have an idea after seeing some prices of the elements you like at your house. Or, you can take a look at this article to have an idea of the cost of home interior design in Bangladesh.

Be honest with your budget while talking with the interior designers

Ask for Portfolio

It won’t be wise to judge an interior designer without taking a look at his or her previous works. So, ask for their portfolios and talk about how they have completed those projects.

It will give you an idea of their hands-on experience

Check out our interior design portfolio for an example.

Meet With 3 Designers

Meet With 3 Designers

This is called the rule of three. When you meet with three designers, you can find the best one among them who really understands your house’s atmosphere and your expectations.

While talking with them, go deep as you talk about your house. Observe closely how they are thinking about utilizing your house’s or office’s spaces and different elements.

Finally exclude one who doesn’t meet your expectations at all. Then, stick to the one who meets your expectations while answering your questions.

Ask as Many Questions as You Can

Since you don’t know them well, you need to ask as many questions as you can. But, ask only the meaningful questions to make the hiring process simpler.

Take notes of the concerns on a device or notebook, and ask questions from there so you don’t forget them. Also, remember, you are going to collaborate with them. So, don’t bother them with something that you wouldn’t like if you were in their place.

Asking Questions
Be Flexible

Be Flexible

Be flexible about what you see in a designer. Because, it’s not possible that you will like everything in a designer.

In the real world, perfect things or persons don’t exist. You have to compromise in some cases. So, open-mindedness and flexibility can make the process easy.

Take Some Notes and Compare Them Afterwards

While talking with the interior designers, take specific notes. Otherwise, you may forget important aspects of an interior designer. Then compare these notes so you can choose an interior designer easily.

Consider their experiences, how they work, etc. while comparing the notes.

Also, consider how you have observed them. Do they seem to be very collaborative or not? Are they willing to do some modifications if needed or not?

What elements are they talking about to use in your house or office. What are their logics behind choosing those elements, colors, or designs? How much do they want for the whole project? Does the budget look logical and does it fall within your budget?
