A developer’s main responsibility is to build and sell. It is at this point where we are asked to come in to wrap up the project into a package that appeals to the greatest number of potential buyers. Therefore, it is important to fully understand the project and the customers. A show unit has only a moment or two upon the prospective buyer entering to make an impression. At this point, they decide whether it is worth their while to look around or to just move one.
Understanding the demographics of the buyer and their lifestyle assists greatly in the overall design concept provided for this type of project. Today’s urban buyers are particularly attracted to purchasing due to the show flat’s overall look and feel. Thus, it is wise to renovate a unit within the budgetary constraints of the buyer and utilizing the renovation budget to the max to create a home where everyone wants to live.
Common Considerations of Show Units Interior Design
Properties are most appealing by square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms. Thus, initial space planning and structural space allocation is important to maximize the appropriate space for regular living. Often, bedrooms are constructed too small for an effective use of space and can then seem as a deterrent to the sales process. Proper thought must be put in to design according to space restrictions. So, home office, music rooms, libraries or just additional storage space should be incorporated into the design concept to give buyers a realistic understanding how their family can best utilize the space. Limiting the need to make structural changes to the show unit in terms of extension or wall modification is advised as buyers don’t want the costly burden of structural changes even before considering the interior design renovation.
Things to take note of while doing Show Units are –
Working closely with developer / architects from the construction design phases is important but often overlooked
Allocating a realistic budget that meets to design appeal but also the buyers expected renovation budget is vital to creating a show unit that is sellable
Limited the use of vibrant colours within the expensive portion of the renovation is advised as neutral colours are more appealing to the greatest number of potential buyers yet punching up the design concept with less expensive home furnishing and accessories
Be fully prepared, organized and efficient is essential for show room renovations. Deadlines are tight in the segment and meeting the clients design expectation and timeline is a must
An effective communication line is very important as show units tend to have many people and departments involved and the communication needs to be established clearly
