Engaging an interior designer to do up your first home might be a daunting experience. You find yourself lost in the sea of technical jargon and terms in regard to all things related to your home renovation. How do you then ensure that the process is a smooth and pleasant one?
Dream Home Concepts’ satisfied clients share 4 tips on how they found the right team to turn their fantasy to reality.
Find an interior design company that genuinely listens to you
“As a first-time homeowner, I was both excited and worried about finding a good interior designer (ID), especially as I wasn’t sure what to expect,” admits client Ki Galistan. Although he met with other interior designers, he didn’t feel comfortable with them for various reasons. “From our very first meeting, I was sure that Simon was the right ID for me. Even before I had confirmed his services, he took the time to have a long discussion about my ideas. I did not have a clear idea of what I wanted, but through our conversation, Simon took into consideration my personality, my likes and dislikes, etc., to ensure he understood my aesthetic preferences.”
Choose a company willing to work on your budget without cutting corners
“Right from the start, I mentioned to Simon that I had a strict budget,” says Ki Galistan. “Despite this, Simon did not skimp on quality at all. In fact, he managed to source some materials that were of even better quality than I expected!”
Engage a team that believes in your vision and is willing to take up challenges
Muhammad Syawal has his friend to thank for recommending him to Dream Home Concepts. “Initially we were quite worried that they couldn’t get what we envisioned, especially because our theme was Moroccan/Turkish. However, Leonard really did his best to listen and understand us, in order to meet our expectations. Everything went smoothly. We’re really ecstatic with the final outcome of our abode. Dream Home Concepts managed to get exactly what we envisioned, and indeed, our house is our Dream Home.”
Find a designer who isn’t just a ‘yes man’ and truly value-adds to your dream home
“Simon provided excellent advice and answered all my questions, no matter how basic. He set my mind at ease at every step of the process and provided regular updates,” says Ki Galistan. He also appreciated that Simon stuck to his designer’s integrity and didn’t blindly say ‘yes’ to all his requests. “He did not hesitate to reject any of my ideas if they would be too impractical or expensive. However, he also understood what I wanted, thought about it, and came back with something even better. He also questioned some of my ideas, to ensure that what I wanted would suit my lifestyle and my needs. He believes, and I agree, that good design isn’t just in terms of how it looks, but how it works. He’s very solution oriented – I love his mindset that if there is a solution for a problem, then it isn’t a problem!” praises Ki Galistan.
Like Ki Galistan, you may be a new home owner who needs an experienced yet patient interior design company. Dream Home Concepts’ director Celina and her team pride themselves on doing their best for every client. “We identify and develop the most ideal use of space for individual home owners, and develop a visual, functional ambience that reflects each person’s taste and values. Affordable price, sincere service and creative design is our priority!”
