    I'm glad you asked. Think about it from a mold perspective, or from a bug perspective - what kind of environment do they crave to be comfortable in? Is the room open for people to walk through, is there food available for them, will the carpet trap bugs and expose them to poisons/biocides? Do we have a place for trash that could attract insects etc.? If your designer doesn't ask about function then they should at least consider functionality as part of their design. The first step would be taking measurements so as to evaluate the space and try and find solutions that address these needs.

    Interior designers need to know about the function of one or more rooms in order to appropriately furnish them. The furniture layout, proximity to other rooms, and type of doorways will all govern what type of design can work best for the area. Functionality is especially important for designing homes where there are children because they entail different safety hazards than an office or study would. Professional interior designers should also submit bids only on projects that align with their scope of practice which is usually determined by an independent licensing board. For example, architects don't put together shelving units but might provide architectural drawings for your shelving unit plans if you purchase them through their company.

    Interior designers should always ask about the function of a room because it affects how people feel in that space. Since design is subjective, interior designers often need to get to know the person they're designing for before they can really create something that appeals to their taste and style. For example - someone might like minimalism and adore bright colors and found objects, while someone else may love rich textures and darkly painted walls with sculptures and antiques. By understanding what's important to them, the designer will be able to concentrate their energy on creating a space where those needs are satisfied or at least accommodated even if not fulfilled completely.

    People who are new to the home-buying process or renovations can get overwhelmed with how many decisions they need to make. It's not uncommon for people to skip over some of the most important considerations when buying a new home, like how often it gets used (and whether that use requires durability). That's why one of the first questions an interior designer will ask is what you plan on using your space.. And while some might assume this question applies only to large spaces like living rooms and dining rooms, they'll also ask about smaller details like which side of the bed you sleep on or whether there's room for both motionless activities at work and active play. Interesting huh?!

    Designers must always consider function in order to properly execute a design. A question that needs to be asked when designing a room for someone is, "what does this person need in a room?" This includes things like how much daylight they need, where do they want their furniture in the room and how it should look, what problems do they have with their vision or hearing? These factors help determine the functionality of specific rooms. Interior designers factor all these factors into account by exploring not only what colors and textures will make something feel more comfortable but also where furniture should go for optimal use of space.

    answer: This is a really good question! There are three main reasons:. - The first and most important reason is to ensure the needs of the client/person who will be using this room, and adjust design decisions accordingly. What's more, accommodating for this person's wants and needs will make them happy. Remember that one satisfied customer gives back twenty other satisfied customers or referrals--this should be incentive enough! - Secondly, by picking fixtures appropriate for the task at hand, you'll also show attention to detail. The result will be an aesthetically pleasing space with all it's functionality hammered out beforehand and present throughout (i.e., light switches in conveniently accessible places).
