Interior Designer is first and foremost solving problems in interiors. If you haven't worked with an Interior Designer before, it's easy to reduce interior design to the more obvious design elements like wallpaper, furniture, lighting.  Aestethics in interiors are of course an important part of the design, but a professional designer thinks about the space as a whole. Providing solutions to the clients' wishes and needs is in the core of a good design.


When would you need a designer?

Designer is there to provide solutions to the smaller and bigger design challenges. You may have a problem with a long and narrow corridor that would need  that "something" but you haven't figured out what it could be. A designer maps out your wishes and comes up with a design plan.  A solution can be a wider, in depth plan that changes the whole layout of the apartment, or it can be a "lighter" solution dividing the space with visual or constrcutual elements. A narrow corrider can be made seem wider or shorter through color choices,  flooring or even changing the lighting.

A designer can be a valuable asset when planning to buy a new home and you want to make sure the space will function according to your needs. A family of four will have very different requirements for a space than a senior couple.  

Layout changes may be needed in order to make a space function well in the current life situation of its habitants. A designer can also make a plan for only parts of the interior;  furniture layout, material choices for flooring and walls, color choices and lighting are all part of interior design.


A Designer usually has good contacts to different manufacturers and workmen. You can save a lot of time and resources by using a designer that finds the right products and materials for your project. 

Feenix Design offers interior design solutions to private and public spaces, large and small. 


Characteristics of a good designer

A good designer understands well what the customer needs and wants and can produce a design plan based on those.  You should always be given professional design plans and needed plans for their execution. Scaled drawings for layout or furniture design and 3D images are examples of professional design planning.  The offer and the contract should have detailed explanation of what the customer is buying and who is responsible for different parts of the project (scheduling, goods delivery etc.)


Who would be a good designer for you?

A designer that is the best fit is one you connect well with. A designer needs to understand your wishes and work based on them. If you want a subdued color scheme and Scandinavian design style, a designer can't present a plan with loud color scheme and romantic wallpapers. Your style is the one defining factor that a good designer is able to understand and deliver.  Your home has to be a place where you feel comfortable and happy for years to come.  Working with a designer is often pretty close relationship, so best to choose one that functions well from the start.
