The first step in any of our interior design projects is for clients to meet with Claudia in person. This consultation usually takes 60 to 90 minutes and helps to establish a relationship and rapport between the client and Claudia, and to discuss and agree the scope of the project.
Preparing for the consultation
In preparation for the meeting, it is helpful if clients email Claudia Interiors with details of floor plans or architectural plans that they may have. Depending on the size and scope of the project, if plans aren’t available measurements may be take on site as part of the initial consultation visit, or a full survey may be organised.
During the first meeting
The initial consultation is the client’s opportunity to share their vision, ideas and requirements with Claudia, and to ask any questions to help them understand the process. Claudia will try to learn about the client’s personality, lifestyle, tastes and style preferences.
Claudia will listen carefully to each client’s ideas, inspirations and practical requirements and ask for clippings, images and inspirations that they may like to share with her. Claudia will introduce some of her own ideas and suggestions in order to gauge client’s preferences and formulate the design brief.
Following the meeting
Following the meeting, Claudia sends the client a detailed proposal for the work.
Depending on the size and scope of a project, there may be several further meetings to explore and develop a full brief for the project.
Once the scope of the project is clear and agreed, clients receive details of the subsequent stages and fees for the interior design project.
