What a designer looks for in a space

As an interior designer, there are a few key things I look for in a space that I’m going to be working on. The first thing is the overall feel of the space. I want to get a sense of the atmosphere and the vibe that the space is giving off. Is it a warm and inviting space? Or is it a more cold and sterile space? Once I have a sense of the overall feel of the space, I then start to look at the individual elements that make up the space. I’m looking at the furniture, the décor, the color scheme, and anything else that contributes to the overall look and feel of the space.

One of the most important things I look for is the functionality of the space. I want to make sure that the space is going to be functional for the people who will be using it. This means taking into consideration things like traffic flow, storage, and any other factors that will affect how people use the space. I also want to make sure that the space is safe and that there are no potential hazards that could cause problems.

Once I have a good understanding of the space and what the client is looking for, I start to put together a plan. I start by creating a mood board that will help to visualize the overall look and feel of the space. I then start to work on a floor plan that will lay out the furniture and décor in a way that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. I also start to work on a color scheme that will help to create the desired atmosphere in the space.

After all of the planning is done, it’s time to start putting the pieces together. This is where the real fun begins! I get to take all of the elements that I’ve been working on and bring them together to create a space that is both beautiful and functional. It’s always a great feeling to see a space come together and know that I had a hand in making it happen.
