Interior designing of your living pad or commercial space is a great way to enhance the aesthetic outlook and give shape to your aspirations. But on most of the occasions, when the final bill arrives at your mail box, it indeed becomes a spoil sport, as it would have easily surpassed your initial estimation or budget. Why is it so? Where have you gone wrong? Is it due to haphazard planning or wrong execution? Well, the overshoot in cost can be due to several aspects, says a reputed interior designer in Pune.
- Lack of planning:
If you are intention is to restrict the total budget well within your estimation, it is of paramount importance to be careful while purchasing the ingredients and accessories that goes towards your designing. As a first step, prepare a detailed list of items that needs to be purchased and prioritize them as per their necessity as either ‘absolutely essential’ or ‘would be nice’. Go to shopping arena and fulfill the former and if you are left with surplus money, the latter can also be accommodated. Also it would be a smart idea to purchase accessories and items such as upholsteries, curtains, cushions, paint shades, and tile patterns that complements with each other. Hence make it a point to carry a sample of everything and ensure their compatibility.
- Think comprehensive:
It is nice to have your kitchen remodelled and you have made the estimation after taking into account the cost of tiles, cabinets, lightings, and counter tops. But did you ever figure in the cost involved in rerouting of plumbing lines, cabling work, and drainage pipes? This is where most of the customers slip!
- Talk with your designer:
No individual can read your mind to understand your aspirations and so is your designer or contractor. Unless you speak and specify clearly about the interior designs you wish and if necessary give it in writing too to your interior designer, perfect execution of your wishes can never be achieved. This would clearly avoid doing the things twice and obviously eradicate extra expenditure. Also make it a point to understand the quality of material specified by your contractor, so that budgetary estimation can be more realistic.
- Go for excess:
While you shop for the materials that go into the making of your interior designing, it would be smart move to buy excess material. For instance, buying the exact quantum of tiles required for your floor area would never work, as you have completely ignored the fact about breakages. By the time you realize the necessity to buy few more pieces, the retailer may either not have stock of the same pattern or may not be ready to sell only few pieces. This situation may lead to buying completely new ones and blow a big hole in your pocket.
- Make room for price escalations:
Markets are not static and especially the cost of construction materials depends very much upon government policies and other aspects such as demand and supply position. Hence always keep aside a few percentages of total budget towards price escalation.
Well, a professional interior designer figures in all these aspects and also considers little contingency expenditure that always pops up. Hence allocation of buffer amount as a part of budgets would be a good move to tide over these problems.
