Finalize the project that you have in mind
Ask yourself: what do you want to create or change? Do you need a makeover or a major renovation? Consider other important factors such as who will use the space, the kind of look or feel that you prefer, and the things that you want to change if you want to work on a makeover.
Think of the timeframe and most importantly—the budget that you can allot
Do you have enough savings to accomplish a new home or a renovation? Take into consideration your target date of completion and the amount of time needed to accomplish what you have in mind.

Ask yourself: What do you want the interior designer to do?
Working with a design professional entails specifying his or hers scope of work. Do you want him or her to recreate a specific look or style? Are there special requirements that need to be met? These questions can help you accomplish this task.
Prepare an initial moodboard complete with pegs
If you have time to spare, it’s best to bring a folder with photos of the design or style that you prefer. We also recommend that you bring photos of your home or the specific area that needs to be improved and information on the plumbing fixtures, appliances, and flooring materials that you plan to have in your project.
