5 Interior Design Kitchen Trends To Try In 2023

Interior design kitchen trends are getting raw and real in 2023. Design concepts will become less focused on a cookie cutter perfect aesthetic, and more about functionality, technology, natural elements, and making a statement.

Check out these 5 interior design kitchen trends to refresh your clients’ homes and inspire your creativity in 2023 and beyond!

1. Colored Cabinetry

Get ready for a rainbow of cabinetry colors! Designers and homeowners are turning away from the crisp look of white cabinetry, and there is a trend toward painted cabinetry in warm, earthy tones. Tints and shades of yellow and green are especially popular right now, along with dark colors that create a moody effect. Two-tone cabinetry is also trending.

2. Eco-Friendly Materials

As climate change awareness spreads, there has been a shift toward eco-conscious kitchen design. This is especially true for materials. Quartzite, an all-natural stone that mimics the look of manufactured quartz, has recently caught on as a hot material for countertops.

The natural, handmade look of a rustic style is catching on fast, too. Designers and homeowners are using reclaimed wood for islands and butcher block countertops. Secondhand and vintage pieces are also being used as a cost-effective, eco-friendly way to create a custom design with some character.

3. Induction Cooktops

Gone are the days of the bulky countertop range. Induction cooktops are the latest kitchen appliance trend, and it looks like they are here to stay. This high-tech appliance uses magnetic currents to heat cookware.

Not only does it have a sleek and modern look, but the induction cooktop also improves safety and features superior heating capabilities. It has the potential to replace gas because it can heat food faster and save energy.

4. Floating Shelves

Floating shelves, which have been in favor for quite some time now, continue to be an attractive kitchen upgrade. They work well to achieve the open, modern look that homeowners crave for their kitchens nowadays, as they break up the blockiness of cabinetry. They’re also great for creating accent walls and showcasing unique backsplash tile.

5. It’s All About the Island

Kitchens have become an essential gathering spot in open floor plans, and islands are taking center stage. It’s becoming more and more popular to create islands that serve as focal points and conversation starters. They are often clad in a material or painted in a color that is different from the rest of the cabinetry to make them really stand out.

They are also getting bigger and longer than ever before, and can be found in multiples. It is not uncommon for a kitchen to have two islands now!

Sourcing Fabric for Interior Design Projects

Sourcing Fabric for Interior Design Projects

Ask any interior designer about the most tedious tasks of the job, and it’s likely he or she will mention ordering furniture in the reply. It can be a long process, as there are many details to specify and confirm before an order is finalized. For example, if you are ordering upholstered furniture, sourcing fabric is another task in itself. It’s important to have a solid understanding of fabric quality and attributes, as well as price point, during the selection process. With this knowledge already under your belt, you will not only cut back time spent down an upholstery rabbit hole, but you will also minimize the risk of order errors and ensure that your client is receiving the best product available for its end use. Keep reading to learn where to start when sourcing fabric for interior design projects.

Interpreting Fabric Attributes

There are millions of different fabric choices on the market, so how do you narrow it down? You can start by reviewing the attributes of fabrics you like, but only if you first understand what these attributes mean. You should be able to find them listed on the specification sheet for the fabric. Pay special attention to the following attributes and how they can affect a fabric’s performance or application:

  • Rub Count – referred to as a certain amount of “double rubs” on a specification sheet, rub count indicates how well a fabric resists damage from abrasion. Every fabric is tested by a machine that rubs against it until it becomes worn. The number of rubs that it takes to wear down the fabric are recorded. The higher the rub count, the more resistant to abrasion a fabric will be. It is best to use fabrics with high rub counts in commercial settings where fabrics will be handled frequently by a large volume of traffic.
  • Flammability – this indicates how easily a fabric will catch on fire and burn. Fabrics undergo a test where they are placed in contact with a lit cigarette and the results are recorded as an NFPA 260 classification. For furniture, there are 2 classifications: Class I and Class II. Class I is less likely to burn.
  • Colorfastness – this indicates how long a fabric swatch will hold its original color. It’s especially important to note this attribute when you are designing for an area with lots of windows or skylights. Fabrics that do have strong colorfastness will fade very quickly.
  • Break/Tear Strength – like rub count, the break and tear strength relates to durability. Minimum weights are listed in the specifications for these attributes to indicate how much weight can be placed on a swatch of the fabric before it breaks or tears.
  • Chemical Treatments – some fabrics are treated with chemicals to enhance their performance. For example, they may be treated for stain resistance, wrinkle resistance, or as a water repellent. You will want to know if a fabric has any special treatments so that you can easily determine the best application for it. If it doesn’t, you may want to have it treated to preserve the life of the fabric in its original form. For example, you probably don’t want to use a very expensive untreated fabric for a family with three active children under the age of four. For practicality, it would be wise to look at stain-resistant fabrics that can endure a little mischief by tiny hands.
  • Care & Maintenance – be sure to check how a fabric should be cleaned and maintained before ordering as well. While this might not sound like a deal-breaker, for some applications, it is. You want to avoid selecting fabrics that are hard to clean and cannot easily be wiped down, especially in commercial settings, where those cleaning and maintaining the fabrics may not always be aware of specific care instructions.

Fabrics are typically accompanied by a specification sheet with detailed information about performance, care and maintenance, flammability, and more. 

Understanding the Fabric Grading System

While some big-box stores offer a limited selection of fabric options for furniture, most companies that regularly work with design professionals have a fabric grading system in place. The grading system is a built-in tool provided by companies to you in the right direction when sourcing fabric. You can use it for estimating the price of a fabric, or as a guide to identify which fabrics will be most appropriate for your application.

There is no universal grading system, so be sure to do your research on the company from which you are ordering and clarify the system that they use. This information can usually be found on the company’s website under a “Materials” or “Fabrics” section.

That being said, there is a general rule for how most grading systems work. Each fabric is assigned a letter to indicate quality, performance, and price point. A is the lowest grade, and the letter assignments continue consecutively as the quality and price point increase. For example, a fabric with a grade of A might be an inexpensive polyester that is not very durable for heavy-duty applications, whereas a fabric with a grade of L is probably a very expensive fine leather or high-performing vinyl with stain resistance and other special treatments.

The grading system works in reverse, too. Let’s say you know what price range you need to stay within, but you aren’t sure what fabric to recommend. Identify which grades are in your client’s price range, and use that as a starting point. Some companies have an option to filter fabric choices by grade on their website, so that you can search only for offerings within your price range.

What is COM?

It would be impossible for companies to include every fabric choice on the market in their grading systems. But even if the fabric that you want to use is not graded, you may still be able to use it. Most companies offer an option for COM, which stands for “Customer’s Own Material.” This option will expand your choices significantly and allow you to create truly one-of-a-kind pieces for your clients. But it also means that there are a few extra steps involved.

Because the quality and price points can vary greatly, COM has to be quoted individually on a case-by-case basis. It must be sent in for testing and approved by the company before an order can be placed. If your client is in a hurry to receive furniture, it’s important to note that this process can extend lead times.

4 Ways to Personalize Interior Design

4 Ways to Personalize Interior Design

Let’s be honest: interior design can be an incredibly competitive industry. Competition demands that interior designers stay on top of their game when it comes to standing out and making themselves known in the design world. One of the best ways to set your brand apart is by creating unique and memorable designs that have been tailored to fit each client’s individual needs, personality, and style. Read on for a list of four ways to personalize interior design concepts and make a lasting impression with your clients!

 

1. Incorporate Custom Millwork

Customizing millwork is an effective way to personalize interior design and make a statement. Millwork often occupies a large chunk of the square footage in kitchens, living rooms, and bathrooms, so it makes sense to make it the focal point in these rooms.

The options are endless when it comes to custom millwork, making it easy to design something that has not been seen too often before. Start with the material, and you already have choices for laminate, wood, metal, and more. For wood cabinets, you can choose between paint and stain; within those categories, there are also hundreds of choices. Millwork can also be designed in different cabinetry styles, such as inset or overlay. Even after it has been produced, you can personalize millwork with custom hardware that fits your client’s individual style.

Designing custom millwork can be time consuming, so don’t hesitate to reach out to a 4Dbiz virtual assistant for support. Our assistants can spend time sourcing or provide you with shop drawings to speed up the process. They’ll help you save time and stay focused on the big picture of the design.

 

2. Choose COM Upholstery

Custom upholstery is another way to personalize a space. Most furniture manufacturers allow you to designate if you would like to use the customer’s own material (COM) for upholstered pieces. This option significantly broadens the possibilities for personalization. You can then tap into offerings from any fabric company, or you can even incorporate fabric that you or your client has personally designed.

Let’s say your client wants a silver metallic ottoman to coordinate with their modern decor. The ottoman manufacturer doesn’t offer that type of fabric, so you choose COM. All you have to do is find a fabric company that makes silver metallic fabric and send a sample to the manufacturer for testing. Once the fabric is tested and approved, the ottoman can be upholstered exactly how you and your client envisioned it.

As a 4Dbiz member, you can access a list of all your favorite fabric vendors through the online portal. Filter your search by offering to quickly display a list of all the fabric vendors. Each vendor listing contains a link to their website, so you can easily view their fabric offerings. You can also use the vendor directory to check on discounts, and to check if a particular furniture company offers an option to use COM.

 

3. Design Custom Furniture

Did you know that you can use the 4Dbiz Virtual Workroom to design and order custom furniture? Custom furniture is the perfect way to personalize interior design because it allows you the freedom to modify size, color, style, or any other element to fit in seamlessly with your concept. You can make a truly one-of-a-kind piece through custom furniture design.

You can submit a request for custom furniture online in the Virtual Workroom. We encourage you to provide as detailed of a description as possible. You can link the request to a specific client in your portal, and you will also enter shipping information for delivery when the custom piece is finished. There is an opportunity to upload concept photos, sketches, or shop drawings with your request as well. We’re dedicated to ensuring accuracy, so that your design vision comes to life just as you and your client imagined it.

 

4. It’s All In The Accessories

While furniture design is the most unique way to personalize interior design, the most cost effective way is through accessories. Spend some time getting to know your clients during initial meetings. Think about how you can incorporate little tidbits of their personalities and stories into the accessories you select for their space. For example, if you have a family-oriented client, perhaps you can create an artistic gallery wall showcasing photographs of loved ones. Or maybe your client is an avid traveler who has amassed a significant collection of souvenirs over the years. Those souvenirs just might be the perfect accessory to style living room shelves and simultaneously tell the story of your client’s global adventures!

 

Creating personalized interior design is all about storytelling and bringing your client’s dreams to life. When you’re passionate about the stories you tell, it just might help you earn recognition as a designer, too.

With an organized portal, plenty of free resources, and a team of knowledgeable virtual assistants ready to help, 4Dbiz can provide you with the support you need to make those dreams a reality!

How to calculate square footage for vinyl flooring, 4Dbiz

How To Calculate For Vinyl Flooring In 3 Steps

Follow these simple steps to determine how much vinyl flooring you will need.

When you specify a beautiful vinyl floor for your client’s project, it is important to know how to calculate for vinyl flooring square footage accurately. This will help you project the cost, and ensure that the product you are recommending is realistic for the project budget. Plus, you will prove yourself as a subject expert to your client and someone that they can trust.

Luckily, calculating the amount of vinyl floor needed for the space is relatively simple! Just follow these 3 simple steps and you will know how to measure vinyl flooring from here on out:

Step 1: Measure The Space

Time to break out your trusty tape measure. You will need the total length and total width of the space. Don’t forget to measure any closets, nooks, and crannies that will also need to be covered.

How to calculate square footage for vinyl flooring

Step 2: Calculate Square Footage

The calculation for square footage is very simple:  Length x Width = Square Footage

Take the image above as an example:

Room: 9′ x 10′ = 90 Sq. Ft.

Closet: 2′ x 5′ = 10 Sq. Ft.

Total Square Footage Needed = 100 Sq. Ft.

 

Step 3: Add Overage and Confirm Your Calculation

When ordering vinyl flooring, it is imperative to account for cuts and waste. That is why you always add overage to the order. We recommend adding a minimum of 10%. If your flooring has any kind of pattern repeat, 20% is recommended.

In the example above, we would order somewhere between 110-120 sq. ft. of flooring.

It really is that simple! However, it never hurts to check with your retailer or your installer to make sure that your measurements match up with theirs. If you’ve followed all three of these steps, you are ready to order.

The Design Purchasing Process

The Design Purchasing Process

If you’re an interior designer, you probably learned early in your career that the design process is much more involved than most people think. It starts with an initial concept, long before you even have the materials, furniture, and accessories to transform a space. What some clients don’t realize is that all of those items are ordered by an interior designer who has the skills and knowledge to accurately specify them. The design purchasing process can be overwhelming and time-consuming, especially if you are new to navigating the purchasing side of the business. However, with the right tips and tools, you can ensure that the interior design purchasing process runs smoothly and efficiently from start to finish.

 

Design Purchasing Prep

It’s a good practice to do a little prep and research on your own to finalize your selections before you reach out for a formal quote. This will save you time in the long run, and empower you with confidence to make the best decisions for your clients.

Start with Specification

As you’ve probably learned from your own experience as a designer, most finishes and furnishings require detailed specification that goes beyond choosing a color and size. Companies and manufacturers usually provide a list of specifications from which to select when placing an order. These may include elements such as:

  • Size
  • Color
  • Finish (for tile, veneers, and other finishes)
  • Handing (for appliances and potentially anything with a door)
  • Type/Location of Power Unit (for benching)
  • Adjustability (for task chairs)
  • Locking Mechanism (for hardware)
  • Color Temperature/Color Rendering Index/Wattage/Dimmability (for lighting)

It’s especially likely that you will need to provide these detailed specifications if you are working on commercial design projects. For example, when specifying benching for a corporate office, you select the color and size, but you may also need to determine the type and location of power units, height adjustability, hardware color and style, type of ganging, and more.

Make Initial Selections

It’s recommended to prepare specifications before requesting a formal quote. It will spare you and the sales representative with whom you are working from having to make several revisions that could lead to inaccuracy and error on the final quote. Do your research carefully, consider your client’s specific needs, and compare specifications for quality across different brands.

Order and Check Samples

When you’ve made some initial selections, be sure to order samples of any finishes and materials on the product. Checking a sample before ordering helps to eliminate the possibility of an unwelcome surprise upon delivery.

Seek Additional Support

However, if you still find that you need a little help with specifications, don’t hesitate to reach out to your local sales representative! They are equipped with the skills and expertise to help you make the best selections, and most are happy to work with you to provide input and share their knowledge.

4DBiz also offers access to the Member Benefits Directory and help from product specialists. Register to become a member today so that you can order samples each month, streamline the payment process, and receive discounts through wholesale and trade accounts.

Open a Trade Account

The best part about purchasing as an interior designer? The discounts! Most furniture and finish companies offer discounts to professionals in the trade, ranging from 10 to 60% off the retail price.

Discounts are a useful tool of the trade to help you earn an additional profit for your business. You can mark up the cost of the discounted items when you sell them to your client, allowing you to make money for each piece of furniture that you sell. And when you’re furnishing an entire project site, those profits can add up quickly!

The only requirements are that you complete a trade account. If you have a seller’s permit, you may also send a resale certificate with your application so that you can make purchases with sales tax exemption.

When you fill out an application, be prepared to provide the following information and answer these questions:

  • Basic company information: Name, address, years in business
  • Preferred payment method: Will you keep a credit card on file?* If the company sends invoices to collect payment, do you need net 10, 15, 30, or 60 terms?

*It’s a good idea to clarify if there is a fee to use a credit card; some companies charge between 3.5-5% of the order total.

  •  Default shipping location: Will orders typically be received at your office? Does the shipping location have a forklift, lift gate, and pallet jack on site? Do you have a preferred carrier?
  • Trade references: Most companies request that you list other references who have done business with you. Your references should be able to vouch for you and your ability to make payments on time.

Request a Formal Quote

Once you’ve selected specifications and opened a trade account, you’re ready to request a formal quote.

Who to Contact

Sales representatives from the manufacturer are a direct line to the product source. They are typically quite knowledgeable about the product they represent and can be very helpful in answering questions about the product. Some manufacturers allow you to purchase the product directly, but more often than not, they will require you to purchase through a dealer or distributor.

Distributors purchase the product directly from the manufacturer, usually at a wholesale rate. They sell to dealers, who work directly with the public. When you purchase from dealers and distributors, you can most likely expect to receive a trade discount. However, keep in mind that the cost of the products will be more than if you had purchased directly from the manufacturer. Dealers and distributors include a markup in their pricing.

What to Provide

You will save a lot of back and forth time if you anticipate and provide the information needed to generate a quote when you first reach out. It’s also a good idea to gather as much information as you can, too. Make sure to cover these points in your request:

  • Project Name
  • Quantities Needed (square footage, yardage, number of sets, etc.)
  • Shipping address
  • Delivery and installation information: are there stairs? Do you need a certificate of insurance for the delivery?
  • Inquire about lead time and shipping/delivery/installation costs up front

Bill the Client for Design Purchases

Once you have a quote, the next step is to bill the client. It’s important to receive payment from the client before you place the order, as most companies require at least a partial deposit to send the order into production. Typical markup for clients can range from 10 to 45%.

Consider what discount you were offered with your trade account, and then mark it up for the client accordingly. For example, let’s say you open a trade account and receive a 50% discount on a lounge chair. The list price, or suggested retail price, of the chair is $1000. This means that the net price – your price after the discount – is $500. You can then mark up the product by whatever percentage you feel is appropriate. A 40% markup on $500 is an additional $200. This means that you just earned $200 in profits by ordering this chair for your client.

 

Complete the Purchase

You’ve gathered your specifications and formal quote, and you’ve received payment from the client. Now you are ready to efficiently complete your purchase. While making a purchase certainly isn’t rocket science, there are a few extra steps to take when placing an order professionally.

Send a Purchase Order

Companies expect to receive a purchase order to start the process. A purchase order can be compared to an online shopping cart. It typically lists each item that you are purchasing in detail, including specifications, quantities, and price. Purchase orders can easily be generated using software such as Quickbooks, Coupa Procurement, or Xero.

Be sure to double check your purchase orders before sending them! Useful tip: Keep your purchase orders with copies of the product cut sheets and highlighted specifications. It helps to keep a record of what was selected. Then you can always return to it later for quick reference. It’s a good idea to check your purchase orders against the specifications with a fresh set of eyes to ensure that you are not overlooking any important information.

Check with your sales rep to find out where to send purchase orders. You can often email them to the rep directly, who will enter the order for you. However, some companies have a special email address or fax number that is specifically designated for orders.

If you’d like to avoid some of the hassle of navigating the purchasing world, consider becoming a 4Dbiz member. You will earn access to an extensive directory that enables you to find information for products, such as lead time and cost, in real time. You can also enlist the help of a product specialist, who will save you time by placing and tracking orders for you.

Complete Payment

After you send in your purchase order, you will most likely need to either pay in full or make a deposit to get the ball rolling for production. Some companies do send invoices after the order has been placed, but it is essential that you clarify this when placing the order.

Be sure to ask about accepted payment methods. Companies almost always accept checks or wire transfers. Most companies accept credit cards, too, but they may charge a fee between 3.5 and 5%. If this is your preferred payment method, you can request a credit card authorization form. Fill it out, email or fax it back, and make sure you receive a confirmation that it was received.

Drawing/Finish Approval

Some purchases, especially custom and upholstered pieces, require drawing or finish approval before they can be sent to production. If an approval is required for your order, expect to receive a drawing of the custom product with detailed dimensions, or a physical sample of the selected finishes in the mail. Check the drawing/finish against the specification, sign if required, and send it back to the rep or orders team.

 

Design Purchasing Follow-Up

Hooray, you’ve placed the order! However, remember that the order is not complete until it’s installed at your project site and the client is satisfied with it. There are a few more moving parts and pieces to track as the order moves from production to the installers to the project site.

Purchase Tracking, Delivery & Installation

Tracking might just be the most vital step of the entire design purchasing process. After all, it doesn’t matter that you placed an order if it never arrives! Stay on top of tracking by creating an Excel spreadsheet that details important information you’ll need to know throughout the process. Here are some suggestions for what to include:

  • Product model number
  • Quantities
  • Purchase order number
  • Order number
  • Order date
  • Payment method
  • Shipping costs: were they included? Were they billed to the client?
  • Order status: estimated time of arrival, any outstanding parts and pieces
  • Location at project site
  • Tag/spec number for the floor plan

Follow up regularly for updates on the estimated time of arrival. For local projects, check to see if the delivery carrier or installer can call you ahead of time so that you can be at the site to receive the delivery. For distant projects, check with someone at the site, such as the contractor, to ensure that it was received on time.

If you are personally checking the delivery, be sure to bring your highlighted cut sheets, order information, and any finish samples that you have. Open the box and look for any damages or scratches. Check power for lighting and appliances. Make sure that the samples and order information match what was delivered.

Tie Up Loose Ends in Design Purchasing

When you’re working on large projects, it’s expected that there are going to be a few unexpected surprises throughout the process. You may experience shipping delays, items that arrive damaged, or missed deliveries. The best solution is to anticipate these snafus and be prepared to handle them.

When you dive into it, the design purchasing process is much more involved than most people realize. It’s a big job, and it’s a lot of work for just one person. If you find that you need help with sourcing, specifications, ordering, and tracking, you might want to enlist the help of a skilled virtual assistant from 4DBiz.
