So many people believe interior design is just about choosing paint colours and couch cushions, but it’s so much more than that. Your interior designer can not only visualise how to bring a space to live and create a room that’s fun and easy to live in, but they also manage the entire design process for you, from the initial production drawing right through to the final beautiful magazine-worthy photographs.
During those early stages of complex interior design jobs when production drawings are required, you’ll soon learn how vital it is to have someone on your side who knows exactly what they’re doing.
What are production drawings?
Production drawings are the detailed drawings that show fitters, cabinetmakers, builders, electricians and other contractors exactly what they’re fabricating and how.
They’re different from the initial concept drawings you’ll work through with the designer as they’ll include details that the production team need to know in order to complete the job to the highest standard possible.
Who creates the production drawings?
If you use an interior designer, they will take the lead on creating the production drawings, even drafting the drawings themselves if they have experience in this area.
Not all interior designers have the skills required or the team in place to create production drawings. In these cases, the designer will work with the professionals to ensure every aspect of the design is thought through. Mal Corboy has an experienced team of contractors in place who he works with across projects. Because he’s assembled this professional team over years, he’s able to quickly and accurately communicate his client’s needs.
What if you don’t use an interior designer?
If you’re not using an interior designer, you’ll need to work with the contractors and fabricators yourself. In many cases they’ll be able to hold your hand through the production process, but because you don’t have experience in this area, you may not realise exactly what you’re getting until it’s installed.
Having an interior designer in your corner ensures that every detail is carefully thought through and contributes to the design as a whole. You’re more likely to get exactly what you want, and have accurate production drawings that enable the fabrication team to put together your dream design on the budget you can afford.
There are so many reasons to bring on board a designer to work with you from conception right through to installation. Let critically-acclaimed interior designer Mal Corboy show you how he can transform your home. Contact Mal for a no-obligation consultation today.
