Interiors play a pivotal role in every building you walk into. From your own home to a luxury hotel, good interior design can not only improve the way a space looks, it can change the way people feel.
Businesses that invest in good interior design can enhance the look and feel of their business, in a way that is completely unique to them. Not only can this have a long-term positive impact on customers and staff, it can also enhance the businesses profitably. That is if you do it well.
At White Circle, we live and breathe commercial interior design but we also realise that not everybody does. That’s why we’ve written this blog post to hopefully shed some light into why commercial interior design is important and how it can bring value to your business.
So, let’s start with a definition.
What is Commercial Interior Design?
Commercial interior design can be defined as the design of commercial spaces such as offices, hotels, restaurants, lobbies and other forms of public spaces. Have you ever walked into a hotel before and felt in awe at the way the lobby is presented. Maybe the art on display is visually stunning or the furniture is creatively arranged.
On the flip side, have you ever walked into a building and felt like something is just off. Maybe the colours don’t compliment each other or the furniture looks like something from the 1800’s.
The running theme between these two scenarios is that the way a space has been arranged, decorated or presented can have a huge impact on a person’s mood and their overall experience.
From a business point of view, if your building/office/business isn’t connecting with people in the way it should, you are simply going to lose business.
This is why commercial interior design should be valued by every business.
What Is The Commercial Interior Design Process?
Now you’ve got a solid definition for commercial interior design, and you know the importance of it, let’s talk about the process.
The usual commercial interior design process will start off with a client meeting where initial information is given about a space. From here, the interior designer’s will get to work and start to create some concepts for the space.
Next, a design proposal and scope of work will be created and sent to the client. When the client is happy, and has approved, ordering and installation of the furniture can then take place!
At White Circle we follow a similar process to the one above but we do things a little differently.
We focus our efforts on creating multi-sensory journey throughout all our projects.
If you’re thinking “what on earth is a multi-sensory journey”, bare with us! When it comes to commercial interior design, we don’t just focus on one aspect of interiors. We aim to encompass all elements such as furniture, artwork, planting, signage and everything in between.
This means we provide you with a full interior package, with the goal of creating memorable and positive experiences for the users of commercial spaces. In commercial spaces, everything should fit together harmoniously, and that is exactly how we approach all of our projects.
How Much Does Commercial Interior Design Cost?
Like most interior design projects, cost will usually depend on a variety of factors. These factors may be the clients budget, the clients requirements, the size of the commercial space, the scope of the project and more.
Commercial interior design, on the lower end, can start from £1000 but bigger projects may end up cost £100,000 or more. Nobody said interior design was cheap!
However, when you consider the amount of value it can provide for a business e.g. customer satisfaction, it is well worth it in the long run.
At White Circle, we pride ourselves on delivering the utmost value to our clients and approach every project with passion and enthusiasm.
