Tips to Makeover a Room with a Designer Touch

During the Covid-19 pandemic, staying at home is an option to protect yourself from the virus. In order not to get bored with the house atmosphere, a makeover or simply changing the interior layout can be part of a solution. Andie, a landscaper and interior designer at X-Otic Garden, Bandung, gave us some tips on how to makeover a space to provide a new design and make the layout of a room more comfortable. These tips are based on Andie’s experience when serving clients.

Clients’ requests are truly diverse. For Andie, this is a challenge. He presents a personal design, so the first thing to do is “get to know the client”. “Getting to know” in this case is to understand the needs, wants, and also the character of the client and then translate this to the design they might like.

“Regarding the look or appearance, as a designer they have to match the style makeover with the architectural style of the house, don’t get it wrong,” said Andie.

For example, the classic house is being makeover with a minimalist style, it definitely would not match. Maybe it may not wrong, the end result makes it just less precise. Makeover is actually a way that combines elements that the client may prefer.

Furthermore, after the client agrees to the makeover design, the next step is to submit a budget that is acceptable to the client.

“For the first stage, I offer the maximum design,” said Andie. When the maximum design is approved, it may turn out that the budget may have a constraint, this is where the designer is tasked with offering alternative materials without changing the design that has been agreed with the client.

“If the design does not “click ” with the client then the designer must be creative in offering alternatives. The important point is to give the design at a cost where the client could afford, ”added An In offering the various materials, it is not just about lowering the budget to make it affordable. The main priority remains that the design should have good materials and nice furniture including accessories. In addition, the products proposed should be durable so that the design can last a long time, it must also provide flexibility for clients when they want to makeover again in the future.

Sometimes designers accept clients who have old items in their current house. The designer must also take the time to give it a new touch so that it looks as good as new. Quality goods at affordable prices are an option for makeover that can be used for a long time.
