Interior Creators

HL chatted to Interior Creators’ Managing Director, Renée De Waal about their new online decor service. Tell us about Interior Creators and the services you offer: Interior Creators is a hybrid between traditional interior designer services and a do-it-yourself facility. We are set to fulfil the need of the modern-day home and business owner to recreate their living or work space at an affordable cost. This will be achieved via Interior Creators’ unique Online Design Portal, backed by highly skilled, professional interior designers who will deliver easy-to-follow design blueprints, through a client consultative process. Our process of delivery is as follows: Once the client has selected a design package to suit their needs, they will gain access to the inside world of Interior Creators. The client will be provided with all the necessary guidance to take measurements and photos of each room required for a design proposal, specific to their needs. Once they have sent these items through, they will receive personalised design boards within a week; together with corresponding specification tables, listing vendors contact details and product prices. This affords the client the opportunity to be creative through do-it-yourself implementation with input from a designer. Why did you see a need for this service? After many years in the field of commercial and residential architectural interior design, I found that as time passed and the internet evolved to be a daily companion, clients’ perceptions have shifted too. As the number of sites on offer and ease of accessibility to information increases, the more informed and savvy our clients have become. With the multitude of visual aids on offer, it is not the clarity of the final picture they lack, but rather the know-how to execute their ideas with confidence and direction to avoid expensive mistakes. How do you see people reacting to an online interior design service? We are definitely moving fast. According to global online stats, Africa can only increase its presence, which will ultimately mean more of a market share for all round online purchasing. In the same way as you would shop for products online, so we offer our customers various packages to choose from. This empowers the buyer to make an informed purchasing decision before engaging with a designer, allowing you to buy and execute in accordance with your budget and in your own time. In addition to this, as with any commodity, we also offer special deals to further aid the consumer’s pocket.
