Selecting a Commercial Interior Design Firm
Commercial interior design is a whole new world. No longer will the same old idea suffice, but you have to know what’s in style right now, or you can’t hope to stay with it. Like it or not, clients are analyzing everything about you, from their very first contact with someone from your office, right down to what kinds of chairs you have in your office waiting room. The only way you can be sure to deliver all of your customer’s best expectations is to find an interior design firm that’s up on the latest trends and fashion for commercial spaces.
It helps to start by looking at some pictures to get an idea of what kind of style and interior design firm you want. Make sure that you have more than one style in mind because you may find that what you pick out at first is really not very trendy or memorable. You want to make an impression, and true experts will be able to point you in the right direction while still allowing for your taste and company style to shine through. Ultimately your new design needs to reflect your brand, your company and vision.
When you do get ready to hire an interior design firm, spend some time on the company website and look at their designs. You’ll start to get an idea of whose work you like, and whose you don’t. You’ll also know the sign of a true expert if you can simply say one or two words that describe your company. Try showing them your company logo and let them get their inspiration from that. A company’s logo says a lot about their style.
There are so many looks available these days that it helps to narrow down a specific style before you begin your search for an interior design firm. Do you want classic or contemporary? Modern or chic? Above all, the design must be functional, so make a list specifically of what you need in the space. More light? A number of separated cubicles? A front desk and chairs for the waiting room? When you are specific about what you need, it allows a good interior design firm to simply fill in the spaces and create your style.
