Interior Design: What to Expect at Your Free Consultation

May 26th, 2016 by Oliver

When you step inside Reno Paint Mart, the hardware-store-feel of the place might have you frozen at the doorway, wondering if “interior design” is a fancy way of saying do it yourself. But have no fear, you’re in the right place. Just beyond all the rows of paint cans and accessories, you’ll find a wood-paneled entryway—like a portal to another world. A place where you don’t have to learn how to use a paint roller.

For the more ambitious types out there, Reno Paint Mart can get you all the tools you’ll need to get your room renovation going. And if you’re looking for the help of a professional interior designer, someone to guide your creative vision; well, they can help you out with a thing or two in that department as well.

There’s really nothing more fun than watching something you’ve only ever dreamed of become a reality. And when you go with Reno Paint Mart for the interior design of your home, you can count them to bring your vision to life.

Here’s what you can expect at your interior design consultation:

Meet Your Interior Designer

Once you get into the store head over to the design department located near the back. You’ll find Bethany or one of her fellow professional interior designers ready, and waiting, to help you out. At this point in the process, it’s all about getting a handle on what you’re looking for in your design.

Often times, people will bring inspirational pieces to these meetings, or items they’ve collected that capture colors, textures, or moods they like. “Someone once brought in a coffee cup that had a color they loved,” says Bethany. So, go ahead, bring along that unique rug you got at a Reno flea market—the one you’ve always loved for some reason or another, and they’ll find a way to work it into your design.

Try Some Samples

Now that you’re here, you may realize that there are so many different colors to choose from. But it’s alright, you’re not in this alone. Once you’ve figured out exactly what you’re looking for, it’s time to see if it agrees with your home.

With stacks of paint swatches and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves loaded with different fabric and wall paper samples, the interior designers at Reno Paint Mart can send you off with everything you’ll need. This will help you get a better picture of what your design will look like in a real-life setting. If you get home and find out you need some extra guidance, in-home consultations are an available option too.

Bring Your Design to Life

For the interior designers at Reno Paint Mart, the mark of a good designer is being able to love your project as much as you do, plain and simple, and there’s no greater joy than your satisfaction when the whole thing finally comes together. And if you’re still feeling unsure about your project by the end of your consultation, or have more questions afterward, you can always set up another appointment or drop by the store. Just keep your head up until you get to the wooden archway, and you’ll surely be in good hands.
