Module 01

Schematic Design

Schematic design is the first stage in the interior design process. When designing for a renovation or build, this is where you explore and set the initial ideas that will resolve your project brief. This is achieved through visually ‘drafting’ your rough ideas with visual references and preliminary sketches.

In this stage you will create a visual moodboard of imagery that will reference the style and vibe of your home renovation or build project. We’ll also look at defining your budget & timeline, coordinating colour, locking in some key design details, as well as how to work with the architectural style of your home.
