• Everybody is skilled at the interior decorating, because everybody lives somehow. Why should I charge an interior decorator?

Everybody can sew up a dropped down button onto her clothes, it does not occur to everybody after all that herself sews her costume. The interior decorating is a serious trade, which have some knacks what have to learn, the interior decorator has to constitute herself/himself continuously, it is necessary to observe the new trends, it is necessary to know the various substances, and the technologies. It is necessary to be skilled at innumerable construction industry and interior decoration trades, not talking about the other artistic and creative abilities. Really, everybody can be settling in, because everybody lives somehow. This is done by many people with good taste, with good sense, and they like even the result. But did you reflected already on it, that whether with how much it would have been possible to bring more out from it if all this would have been solved by a real specialist's help?

• Why would I entrust myself to a strange person, from where she/he would know that how I want to live, because she/he doesn’t know me?

The good work of the interior decoration is always a common creation on the basis of the mutual confidence. The customer relates his/her claims, his/her desires, his/her opportunities, the interior decorator gives an idea adding his/her vocational knowledge to it though, makes order, shows alternatives, and helps with the choice. On the other hand the definitive decision is the customer's task always.

• Certainly it is very expensive thing to entrusting an interior decorator…

Not at all. Of course, usually the planning price is found too expensive by the customers when they notice the offer first, because they think that “it is only a piece of paper”. They give a thought to it, that from this sum the couch would be able to be bought already, or that cool faucet, what was seen on one of the exhibitions. They realise later only that a good interior decorator works hard for his/her money, moreover his/her collaboration – as a result of an expert's advising – the prices of all these things may be saved in a multiple value. At this time is also valid, that the expensive one will be made of the cheap one many times, and the cheap one will be made of the expensive one.

• How can we save money if we entrust an interior decorator?

In several ways:
- If it is not necessary to purchase, and to build the things that will prove to be later unnecessary one (for example if we do not build in a door onto that place where we will never close it during the next 20 years).
- If we avoid the double shopping is originated from the wrong choice as follows (for example we do not buy that cool faucet originally, from which we realise it during a usage only, that it not too so cool, because it may not be to fit to our heating system).
- If in the required place we select a suitable substance, technology, technique, or object (for example we do not buy the advertised miracle gadget, if we may get a cheaper matching gadget with identical knowledge).
- If taking advantage of the interior decorator's contacts, we do not buy in the shop known by us, but in the place offering the same product with the most favourable conditions.
- If we avail ourselves of the preferential opportunities that certain distributors offer, but only for the interior decorators' clients.

• When is worthy to involving the interior decorator in the work?

As soon as possible. Even already the plot choice, or before an apartment purchase useful advices may be given. It is not suggested to be saving up the time for the thorough planning.
When the plan exists on paper only yet, then it is possible to think through a lot of thing yet, without the unnecessary expenses. All this may have been to the phase of the implementation with expenses already. Since everything is linked to everything, it is important, that the single designers, constructors let it not be regarded as detached specialists, but a team's part, because only the tight cooperation, the constant communication may bring the expected result.

BACK TO THE TOP


• Is it possible to order the interior decorating for a full flat only or for a smaller area of the flat too?

It is possible to order any kind of work which is connected to the interior decorating, let it be small or big one with low or high budget. It is possible to achieve the most effective result with those works of course where the full planning of the flat and the supervision of the implementation is entrusted to an interior decorator, but the smaller subtasks just as important for us.

BACK TO THE TOP


• Is it worthy with more interior decorators spectacle design to prepare, and after to select the suitable interior decorator on this basis?

Not! This application method is usual at the bigger, but not living aim projects. However this method does not make sense in the case of flats. The interior design is a confidential work. It is necessary to talk a lot many times with the customer in order that we recognise his/her claims, his/her opportunities, because we can prepare the best plan for him/her in this way. The flat is not a stage. The plan is not (only) about the sight. The spectacle design cca. due to. the second third of the logically built-up planning period. It is totally unnecessary to spend the multiple of the planning time and the money in such a way that you charge of more interior decorators in parallel time, because the interior decorators ask the payment of their work is done till then rightfully. One single idea will be realize anyway. So you may be more fruitful with the careful work of an only interior decorator is selected well.

• How shall we decide which interior decorator we entrust?

Be confident about your own intuitions and your reason. You may face a numberless interior decorator's works in journals of interior design, the internet, or you may browse on their websites (at this time on mine for example). I suggest it for you that not to look at these reference photos, drawings and descriptions so, that if you can imagine them for yourselves because they did not get ready for you. You examine it rather, what do you think about this interior decorator: whether witty, useful his/her works, can you see the expert thought and care in them, if there is something plus in his/her works, whether nice his/her working method, do you consider him/her to be an authentic specialist, if you would trust this interior decorator (in the present case me).

BACK TO THE TOP


• Why do I choose exactly you as my interior decorator?

The interior design is a confidential work. It is necessary to recognise by very many talks the customer's and his/her family members' personality, their conduct, their flat usage habits, in the interest of that let us be able to draw up the suiting variant them exactly. This may turn out only with common work, and mutual confidence. I do not want to repeat myself here, I ask you for browsing my website, and decide it, that if you can trust me, my attitude, my discretion, in my expertise, my conscience, my ideas, my perfectionism? Choose me only if you think it that yes. If you have any question please do not hesitate to ask me
here.

BACK TO THE TOP


• How important for you to follow the current fashion during your work?

As much, as it is important for my customer. I am trying to be up-to-date, I am aware of the newest trends, the new substances, and the technologies. I prepare the plans for these adequately naturally if the trend appearance is important for my customer. This makes sense if it is possible to renew the design within a relatively short time. Similarly to the dressing, the fashions change each other quickly, and the unfashionable solutions cause strange effects after the passing of a certain time. Because of this, if the interior design is wanted to longer time, I suggest a more neutral, “ageless” sight rather then.

BACK TO THE TOP


• What is your favourite style?

I design in all styles with pleasure. It is exciting in my interior decorator work, that I may hide myself into an other person's body at all times, I have to thinking by the head of somebody else, I have to see with an other person's eye, I have to feel with the heart of somebody else. The answer given to the question differs on a manner such if it concerns our own flat, and then, if our work. Myself - just as well, than my dressing – I like the plain, moderate, ageless solutions. This does not mean that I do not take with pleasure in the moods differing from this however. Indeed! During my work therefore my favourite style is always the style I may design with.

• How may somebody become an interior decorator?

The interior decorator a trade (according to the National register of education) is equal to a secondary qualification which can be obtained after a high school graduation in Hungary today. It is possible to go to a numberless, educational institution dealing with an adult training and to sit an examination nowadays. Those interior decorators who sat their examination earlier, they may also choose from more professional development opportunities, higher-level education, but today does not exist yet from it higher state training, and it is not possible to make the master's examination acknowledged by the Chamber. I suggest it before somebody would select this, let you take it into consideration, what do you think about the interior design, let you look up interior decorators who are working actively, and let you ask them about their experiences. Regarding the school choice let it not be the primary viewpoint where the school is, and how much the course costs. Look round thoroughly at more institutions before you would decide. This – although many people consider it as their hobby (too) – a serious, complex trade, requires continuous, ceaseless learning, educating. It requires not only creativity, and necessary affinity to the arts, but it also requires very much technical senses and knowledge, knowledge of mankind, humility. Although this is a fashionable trade, but less interior decorator can live yet on doing this job today, than in other countries where this trade has bigger traditions.

BACK TO THE TOP


• What are the differences between the interior decorator and the interior designer?

The differences are in the forms and in the contents of the training, and also in the qualifications. The “interior decorator” is a secondary qualification, generally it is possible to sit an examination after the accomplishment of a 2 year-course. (Unfortunately in many schools yearlong or even shorter courses exist.) The students deal with the interior decorating of flats primarily on the time of the course. The “interior designer” qualification is a state higher education degree, which is taught in universities and colleges. The students deal with community spaces, furniture planning, architecture mostly in the course of their studies and with flats in a smaller part only. The interior designer may become authorized for making of those plans to which building permits are necessary. The project comes into existence with tight cooperation of the architects, the interior designers and the interior decorators in those countries, where the visual culture is more developed, than at us. In our country – unfortunately today yet – that is the typical, that one person is entrusted only from the three specialists and to doing the work of the others is expected from him/her.

• May the interior decorator have walls pulled down?

This is a very complex question. Theoretically the architectural plan of the house is the architect's intellectual property, so to modify it could not be without his/her consent. In many cases this rule cannot be realized, and the proprietor of the house expects rightfully that the flat adapt to his/her claims. For pulling down the walls – in addition to this – there are some legal and technical conditions too. It is possible to modify constructions keeping a load, and to modify the sight of the facade in the possession of a building permit only, to these work an architect or a structural engineer may prepare the plans only. It is possible to move inner partitions (which do not carry loads) more easily, but there are some cases like that, when it is necessary, but at least it is recommended the opinion of the structural engineer (for example in case of pulling down a full partition in a block of flats, or in an old building of a tenement house etc.) The interior decorator may take a proposal for the partial, or the full demolition of the walls, but it is his/her responsibility, that let to know the borders of his/her own entitlement, and calls the customer's attention that in certain cases necessary to request companion designers into the work.

• The expense estimate is not included in the services. How is it possible to find out how much the planned work of interior design will cost?

The expense estimate professionally is a very swampy area. Today already the choice is enormous between the products and the service providers. Since it is possible to obtain tile covering for example less than 1.000.- HUF/m² and more then 100.000.- HUF/m² price, it is difficult to estimate that how much the renovation of a bathroom will cost finally. And this is true for all of the area of the interior decoration. Therefore I work reversely generally. The customer tells me how large that overall amount is, which it is possible to spend, and I recommend for him/her suitable solutions for this sum. With this solution is avoidable, that the sum of the definitive choices exceeds the estimated value or simply, let the money run out in a procession. (It is same as we are experienced on the different areas of our life.) In the section of the implementation plan being a packing-list implies actual prices already from the selected substances, objects, it is possible to reckon with them so. Independently from this, you can order any other kind of service (which is related with interior design) what does not figure in the enumeration though, but you feel that you would need it.

• Why can I see black quadrangles instead of single inscriptions meanwhile downloading the webpage, and why they disappear only after the side has completely downloaded?

You presumably use Internet Explorer 6 browser, or some earlier version of it. Unfortunately the 32 bits-transparent .png pictures which can be found on this website is displayed poorly by these browsers.
I suggest you that use the latest Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari or Opera browsers, to avoid the above mentioned mistakes.

• I wanted to print one of the pages out, but instead of some texts only black quadrangles can be visible. What should I do?

Please read the answer is given to the previous question and follow the suggestion is written there.
