Discover and Integrate Your Business Mission Statement With Your Interior Design Presentation

Here are a few keys that will be extremely vital to the success of your office, especially in regards to your interior design.

Number One: Proper Discovery This aspect is totally essential to making sure that things turn out as they should. A big part of this process is asking the right questions, in order to get the right answers that contribute to getting the right results. Think of this as if you were Sherlock Holmes.

Proper discovery also answers questions such as:

Where am I right now and what current conditions do I need to deal with?
Where do I want to go and what do I want to project to my clients and customers in terms of my visual interior design presentation?
What kind of ambiance and feeling of the space do I want projected as well as perceived by my clients and customers?
What kind of aesthetic and functional aspects do I need to incorporate in order to reinforce and support my staff and employees?

Number Two: The Mission Statement You want to take the information that’s been extracted from talking about your dreams and what you want (all the things that came from the discovery process), and put them in a paragraph or two that talks about what it is you want to accomplish. We’re talking about the look, the ambience, the feel, and the emotions that you want portrayed in your environment as well as to your clients and customers.

This step is in addition to the functional aspects of a project, but it helps to hone the essence of the final end-result. You want to really refine this in a very descriptive way so that you have a yardstick, level, and plumb-bob, so to speak. It allows you to measure everything that happens from here on out to the end of the design process. So, it is very important that we get this mission statement right. It eliminates the “fluff” and a lot of things that you really don’t need to take up your time, money, or energy.

Number Three: Budget! This is definitely your “vested interest,” because you surely have a vested interest in the amount of money you want to invest in your project, office, or building. The idea is we don’t want to just merely spend your money. We want to invest it with a view toward the maximum return on your investment! And that return can happen in a lot of different ways!

Warning: You must be realistic here! Do not expect a Rolls Royce for the price of a Buick. If you are a “Rolls Royce” business in terms of quality of service and products, then by all means have a “Rolls Royce” quality presentation to your interior design.

You don’t have to do everything all at once. You can space out your investment over a 5 year, 10 year, 15 year, or 20 year span. You can pick any time span you want. This is where a master plan comes into play. It is absolutely necessary for the proper utilization of your resources.

Obviously, some things you will have to do all at once, such as certain construction phases. But, there are some things that can be postponed and added after the fact without causing a lot of disturbance, as long as these things are preplanned and accommodations have been made for them. So, in essence, you are designing incremental additions or advances into your master planning.

Master planning is the exciting part, because once you have a plan and a vision for where you want to go, you will find the money to make it happen. It’s not a prerequisite to have that money in hand right now.

Number Four: Integration The architecture and the interiors function as a hand-and-glove scenario. The interior, which includes all the backgrounds, furniture, furnishings, artwork, etc., functions as a stage setting, so to speak, for the individuals that will inhabit the space. It’s important that these elements put those individuals that are working in your business environment in the very best light. They need to be the gems highlighted against the backdrop of your business. Remember, people are one of your biggest investments. The whole environment should reinforce, support, and enhance everyone working for the company.
