As an interior designer, creativity is essential to success. However, it’s not always easy to tap into that well of inspiration and come up with fresh and exciting designs. That’s why it’s important to prepare yourself to enter into the creative zone.
One way to do this is by using prompts, so we have created an expertly curated guide that offers 100 creative and thought-provoking prompts that cover all the key aspects of design conceptualization.
The guide is divided into four main categories:
- Function and Purpose – the prompts encourage you to think about the main function of the space and how to incorporate them into the design
- Aesthetic and Style – the questions prompt you to consider the overall aesthetic of the space and how to incorporate it into the design
- Emotion and Atmosphere – these prompts ask you to think about how the design can evoke specific emotions and atmosphere for the user
- Budget and Practicality – these prompt you to think about how the design can be both beautiful and cost-effective
But it’s not just about coming up with new ideas; it’s also important to critically analyze your design concept to ensure that it reflects your personal or brand’s style and meets the specific needs of your client. That’s why our guide also includes prompts for reviewing your design concept, identifying your personal style and narrative, and even how to get into the creative zone.
To get the most out of these prompts, it’s important to approach them with an open mind and a willingness to experiment. For example, if the prompt is “What if you flipped the traditional layout of the space?” don’t dismiss the idea out of hand, consider how it could be applied to your current project and what benefits it might bring.
Another tip is to use the prompts as a starting point for further research and exploration. For example, if the prompt is “How can you use light to create a specific atmosphere in the space?” take some time to research different lighting techniques and consider how they might be incorporated into your design.
Finally, don’t be afraid to combine prompts or adapt them to suit your specific project. The prompts are there to inspire and challenge your thinking, so feel free to use them in any way that works best for you.
This guide offers a comprehensive and practical approach to design conceptualisation. It provides a wide range of prompts to inspire and challenge your thinking and covers all key aspects of design conceptualization.
By using these prompts and incorporating the tips we’ve provided, you’ll be well on your way to creating designs that are both beautiful and functional, that reflect your personal or brand’s style and that evokes specific emotions and atmosphere.
