The “Puzzle Approach”
The design process can be daunting. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all of the decisions. To become immobilized. Niemann Interiors has a simple philosophy about the design process.
Envision a puzzle with 1000 or more pieces. Imagine that puzzle in a plain white box. Blank pieces. No image. We all know what to do first, right? Open the box, spill out the pieces, and find the ends and corners. Establish a frame.
A design project is like a blank puzzle. At Niemann Interiors, our goal is to guide you in finding and defining your edges and corners. To help you define your puzzle… your Design Scope. Now we fill in the pieces.
How do you want the finished puzzle to look? How do you want it to feel? How will it be used? Is it clean, uncluttered and contemporary? Is it classic, time-honored, and traditional? Is it modern, stream-lined, and industrial? Is it an unexpected and eclectic mix? Is it a Home? Resort? Restaurant? Country Club?
Suddenly, building your puzzle isn’t intimidating. It’s exuberating, collaborative and entirely user-focused. By keenly listening to you and observing the way you respond to images, samples, textures, and concepts,… by discussing your special concerns, functional needs, and of course your budget, we establish your Design Direction and apply your vision to the realities and requirements of your space.
As each design decision is made – we fit one puzzle piece to the next – the pieces transform from all white to images with color, form, and function. And the satisfying feeling of placing the last piece is enhanced by your realization that you’ve created a space that required 1000’s of decisions. You’re awed by not just the beauty of what we’ve collaboratively created but its unique functionality. Your blank space is transformed.
Your puzzle is complete.
