5 Tips for Your First Interior Designing Meet as a Professional

by S3t Koncepts Interior Design Company
Are you ready for your first meeting with the client? Well, we are sure that you are getting all sorts of anxieties and have hundreds of doubts right now. But do not let any of them get in your way and focus on your goal. We have listed 5 tips that have helped top interior design companies in Dubai to conduct successful meetings and we are sure that you will find these points useful too:

Be prepared

As soon as you finalize the date for your first meeting with your client, kick-start your preparation as well. Do not think that you just need to have impressive designs and ideas to lure the customers and grab the project. There are several things that you need to get in place before you go for that first official meeting. Work on your verbal and non-verbal communication, your accent and language, knowledge about your field, body language, etc. Apart from this, you also have to prepare an outline of all the topics that might be discussed between both the parties.

Read about the project

It is important to do your homework if you want to impress your client and get your first project. People look for designers who value their clients and possess great knowledge about the field. So, garner all the essential points about the project and owner of the space. What are their preferences, the latest trends, budget, possible designs within the budget, colour palette, and more? If you offer fit out solutions in Dubai, then prior knowledge about the project is even more important as you have to suggest to them all the details of the designs and fittings.

Gather the stuff that you need

Of course, you are not planning to go empty-handed to your first meet. This doesn’t imply that you have to carry loads of stuff and materials but there are certain important things that every interior designer must have in meetings. Prepare a list of all the items that you need, such as notepad, pen, pencil, ruler tape, your portfolio, interior design magazines and journals, and camera in case you need to click pictures of the space.

List all the questions

Every meeting is a two-way communication and interior design is no exception to it. As much as a client needs to clear all the doubts and raise questions to ensure transparent dealing, designers must also get rid of all the doubts and eliminate all the confusion. Therefore, list all possible questions that are required to deliver a successful project. You will need to know the budget, colour preference, deadlines, taste, motive etc. Make sure that you have answers to all these points by the time meeting ends. In fact, most interior design companies in Dubai have a questionnaire that they ask the clients to fill before finalizing the project.

Be open to new ideas

Some designers are too rigid and stubborn with their ideas that they reject or couldn’t accept the perception of the clients at all. As a result, they lose all the big projects and face failures. So, it is important that you listen to what your clients have to say and take their ideas into consideration. Be patient and calm while talking and if you think that a certain demand is not possible, then explain it nicely to your clients. Whether you provide fit out solutions in Dubai or design houses, this approach will take you a long way.
