Do you know the difference between residential design and commercial interior design? Residential designs normally deal with homes while commercial interior designs are related to hotels, restaurants, banks, hospitals, schools and shopping malls etc.
As per Rocco Basile a well-known property consultant there is a clear-cut distinction between residential design and commercial design. Residential interior design normally gives more importance to welcoming people and giving more spaces. On the other hand, commercial design generally deals more with functionality with an objective of financial gain. Whether it is hotel or any small shop the designing should be done in such a way that it can create more revenue to the organization. Therefore, scope of work in commercial design is much more than any residential design area.
How commercial interior designer actually work?
According to Rocco Basile commercial interior designer first of all must understand the business concept of the organization. Therefore, he can prioritize various components and their functionalities without compromising with the aesthetic part. Let us take example of any hotel, where they need to accommodate few guests to maximize their profit. Therefore, in order to impress their guests, they will design for spacious rooms with lavish bathrooms with some better views so that guests may really like it. There must be various amenities like spas, gyms, pools, bars and restaurants etc.
Keeping in view the available space he will try to create a beautiful space to meet various requirements of business, which will attract more customers and at the same time there is ease in conducting the business.
Usually, most of the commercial interior designers know very well how to utilize the place very effectively and at the same time maintaining beauty of the surrounding. They are really trained to create various facilities within the available space so that people can move around in safe manner and at the same time the business activities are also done properly.
They work in tandem with other contractors and manufacturers to make structural changes, floor lighting, ceiling design, location of windows and various materials to be used effectively. They will also select right kind of material and also make proper budget for the project.
The actual work of commercial interior designer will start after the construction work is completed. Then he will transform the area into a place, which will be presentable, customer friendly and conducive for running the business activities. He will also involve in various decoration process and will select various items for decorating the place which should not only complement the business, but also the surrounding décor. He will also choose the color, furniture and fabric. Also, decide about any artwork if that can promote the business.
If the commercial interior designer is a talented person then he can transform any failing business into a booming success. Therefore, before starting his activity he will discuss in detail with various people of the organization so that he can conceptualize the design that everyone will love.
