Few pointers to pen down before approaching an interior designer:
House cannot be complete without good interiors. We were all in that stage where we dreamt of living in a beautiful palace in our childhood. Getting the quality interiors for your home that makes you WOW comes only with a two- way approach i.e., the designer and most importantly ‘YOU’.

But, if you are planning to hire an interior designer for your home interiors / flat interiors, then here are some pointers to pen down before approaching them right away.
1. Research first and approach next:
Don’t approach some other random designer when you see their ads on online channels or in the newspaper. Before giving them a call, just think once and do a proper ground research. Every interior design firm now-a-days will be having their own online presence in this virtual world. So note down the most recurring companies you will find in your search results.
2. Interior designer’s Skill Test :
Once you listed down the famous design firms in your locality proceed to the next step. See their works online either on Facebook, Youtube channels and their portfolios, research more about each company like years of experience they have in this field which will land you in a safe zone. This way you can easily track if you are genuine or not.
Note: Observe how the people are responding to their designs.
