After knowing about these points a good interior designer started to design the client’s space. In recent times clients are more demanding about design because interior design resources are available on the internet/ social media site such as Pinterest, Facebook, and many others.

You have to make him understand that if he/ she implement these types of design for his/her place it won’t be comfortable at all due to space requirements.
