This series is a bit of a glimpse ‘behind the curtain’ of what being an Interior Designer is actually like. What if I told you that there are frequently years between designing projects on paper and when they’re built and usable? In this instant gratification world, it may seem absurd how long projects may take to come to life, but when they do, no matter the time they took, they are always so exciting to see!

This week I got to see images from one of the first projects I worked on at NKB, a restroom and break room renovation. You might remember this project as it was a topic I blogged on a few years ago; a unisex multi-person restroom (check it out if you haven’t seen it – here!). When designing projects, we always make sure the selections we’re making aren’t too “trendy” and will last the test of time because of the time it takes to build projects.

Breakroom renovation from concept…
…to completion!

Things like this are often one of the biggest misconceptions about the life of an  Interior Designer. A common misconception is that we pick the most trendy, hip things just because we can. But I feel that a project is successful when it is a clean design, fitting seamlessly into the surroundings, and has just the little pops of trends to make it feel current.

Interior Designers at NKB work to make our projects beautiful the day they’re designed, the day they’re built, and well into the future.
