Frequently Asked Questions
The self-starter guide for when you have a simple question and don’t really want to wait an indeterminate length of time for that simple reply.
In an effort to help us create a beautiful and functional space for you, we suggest you start developing a visual reference file of images or items that capture the feeling, colours, textures, and functionality of what you’re trying to achieve.
You can draw design inspiration from many sources such as fashion, art, sports, travel, books, music, stationary, etc. The images you show us don’t have to be pictures of interior spaces. Show us whatever tickles your fancy.
The more meaningful images you can show us the easier it will be for us to understand your preferences and design your unique environment. Have fun compiling your reference file knowing that it will be a valuable tool.
Spending a little time flipping through magazines is an easy way to find your personal style and get some ideas about colour. Gather magazine pages and photos of certain styles you like, as well as fabrics and colours. Make a separate pile for things you don’t like as well as that will help your designer know what to stay away from. Any additional ideas or questions you have collected, including an estimation of your budget, will make your experience with your designer more successful.
Space Factor is established since 2010 and is currently one of the most positively reviewed interior design firm online. Our projects cover a wide variety of design styles as well as the types of residential layout. Our designers are all professionally trained in ID and have an average of 15 years experiences in designing homes and commercial projects. You can view some of our complete projects here.
All of our creative interior designers are fully qualified to work with all types of styles and design concepts, so that we can provide whatever our clients require. We are professionals with years of experience to meet your various design needs.
Before we start on the design, we will carry out a comprehensive design interview so that we can align with our clients and ensure that we are speaking the same visual language. Doing so can clearly help us to capture your client’s design desire and will definitely result getting really close to your ideal home concept. After the initial presentation and proposal, we always proactively adjust the design with you and make changes so that it is a better fit for your home and your vision.
Our interior designers can do anything needed to build your home, running the full range from pre-construction detailing to complete interior design. Some of our projects include reupholstering, furniture placement, lighting plans, and custom window treatments or custom built-in furniture. Accessories can also be taken out of our showroom “on approval” so you can try them in your home. We work with a large number of installers, painters, contractors, etc. and can offer referrals when needed.
Talk to our interior designer about what you have as your budget, and we will help you maximise that budget to closely achieve your desired design. As such, costs will also vary depending upon your house type and what you hope to achieve in constructing your ideal space.
In a typical interior design process, our interior designer will have a meeting with you to discuss the project. All aspects and requirements will be discussed and the designer will then come up with a concept proposal. When this is agreed our interior designer will then work with the various sections such as masons, carpenters, electricians and others who will form the Project Team, to translate the concept into working drawings and finally into reality. Throughout the project, we will regularly update you on the progress as well as meet with you for material selection confirmation or to make any minor changes to the initial design. We maintain a rather flexible process for our clients as we believe each project is unique and there should not be any major constraints to achieve the outcomes you desire.
The characteristic of a good interior design must evoke the desired emotions as well as accommodate the lifestyle of the occupants. Whether it may be the needs of an elderly, the disabled or a young couple with the desire to start a family, our designers make sure they incorporate and meet these needs without compromising on aesthetics.
Designing a home is a delicate and personal process that requires us to ask you very specific questions regarding your needs. We think that these questions would also need extra effort on our part to understand what you are trying to achieve in your design. So. in short, we would decline to participate in such a mass meeting and would like to encourage you to meet us (or even other ID firms) on a one-on-one basis.
Yes. With the interior designer you met on the first appointment with Space Factor, the same designer will be working with you and managing the project together with a supporting them may include an assistant interior designer. Backing the interior designer is also a team of stringently selected and closely supervised contractors and vendors who will ensure all works are done according to specifications agreed by you.
The short answer is no. We believe every home owner’s home aspirations or commercial space requirements are unique. Every project we undertake must take into considerations the occupant’s needs, design preferences, and budget. Hence, we do not want to force a package that will place constraints on the desired outcome. However, do rest assure that our interior designers will maintain a high degree of flexibility to build a space that will make you feel you made the right choice in engaging our services.
As designs are rather subjective different individual visual preferences, it is impossible to accurately such preference over a telephone conversation. Thus, we strongly encourage our customers to meet us at the first meeting so we will ensure that we will not misunderstand their requirements. Furthermore, a home is an investment that you will be staying in for a considerable amount of time. We wish to also inspire you to entrust us with such a valuable investment through a face-to-face meeting. That way, we can also establish a strong rapport with you to ensure your home building journey is a pleasurable one.
