How can I decide Design styles without being much confused?

Before starting the Design phases, the client has the freedom to choose the styles & change the styles when the first 3D work is submitted by us in case you want something different & even when not liked the given ones.

It is challenging to change the styles when work starts on-site as it changes the entire design theme & this may bring sudden weird variations in the places we execute.

What is the difference between Design & Decoration?

These are the two different words. Designing helps & controls the details of the products. Designers are aware of the sustainability of the structure & the products, technical & legal parts for the ongoing site work & at the time of the site completion.

Decoration does involve the add-on to the existing aesthetics of the site & the structure of the site. Like, draperies, accessories, look & feel of the new materials with the existing materials of the site.
