Creating finish boards is a great way to visually explain an upcoming interior design project to employees. They can keep team members in the loop by quickly communicating renovation or new building plans. In this post, we’re sharing how to develop finish boards in six easy steps.

  1. Our interior design team starts by meeting with an organization to determine the look and feel they’d like to have in their new space.
  2. Next, they discuss maintenance to identify the durability and care needed. Based on the client’s feedback, they will direct them towards certain materials. For example, they might recommend a specific paint finish, flooring or wall protection based on the client’s needs.
  3. Then, they build a design scheme for the space.
  4. Now, finishes are selected based on how they will complement the new or existing furniture.
  5. At this point, they give companies the option to make edits and then, begin working through the approval process.
  6. Once items have been chosen, a board with samples of all the finishes is assembled. This can be done digitally with photos or by incorporating actual, tangible samples. For many clients, our design team creates an electronic plan with a legend to illustrate where various finishes will be in the space.

No matter how the information is presented, finish boards allow clients to get a feel for the entire project. This can help companies create buy-in among their team and get staff members excited about an upcoming transformation.
