Moodboards (or inspiration boards) are an easy way to show your clients your ideas before getting into the nitty gritty details.
Creating moodboards doesn’t take long. As a rule of thumb, you should present your clients with several moodboards so they can choose the one they like best.
Moodboards can be created using free collage tools such as Canva. They should include the room’s color scheme, materials, textures, and key furniture and decor items.
The layout of a moodboard plays a big role in the way your client views and understands your ideas, so make sure it flows properly and isn’t overly cluttered.
Remember, this will be the first time your client will have an idea of what you have in mind for their future space, making it an important step in your interior design presentation.
We’re going to be honest with you.
Hand-drawn sketches are becoming less and less popular in the interior design industry, being replaced by advanced interior design rendering software (more on that later).
However, there is still some value in hand-drawn sketches, but only if you’re planning on offering your clients a 3D rendering as well.
Sketches can be very impressive, demonstrating skill and attention to detail. If you want to hook your client from the get-go, you can even come up with a quick sketch during your consultation.
If your drawing skills are mediocre at best, don’t bother with this interior design presentation technique. But if you’re confident you can deliver a quick sketch that will help sell your design, then there is no harm in producing one.
This is how you seal the deal.
No interior design presentation is complete without a good 3D rendering of the space you’ve designed.
Although it takes more time than any other presentation technique, it is worth it to close the sale. Plus, 3D renderings can be easily modified should your clients want to make changes.
Renderings help your clients understand exactly what their space will look like so there isn’t any confusion or misunderstandings down the line.
They’ll save both of you time and frustration in the long run.
To create high-quality renderings, you’ll need a professional design software, and you’ll need the right skills to use it to its full potential. Many companies offer interior design software training so you can excel at creating beautiful designs and renderings.
