Have you ever thought about hiring an interior designer or decorator? What stopped you? Was it the expense? Hiring an interior designer is a smart move if you’ve already invested money into your home and you want to make it look it’s best. Designers and decorators can help you when you have no idea how to begin decorating your home or office.
Interior Designers Save You Time
Hiring a designer is invaluable when you don’t have the time to spend shopping and putting it all together because of your busy schedule. Face it, your time is money and the time a designer saves you can offset the design fees.
Interior Designers Save You Money
Yes, you are paying additional money in design fees for someone else to do the research, purchasing, delivery, and installation. However, by hiring a designer who does these things on a daily basis, you can avoid costly mistakes and increase the value of your home.
Interior Designers Are Objective
Your designer will give you a professional and objective assessment of your situation. He or she is not emotionally invested in your home and they can give you a realistic idea of what you need, help you figure out what you want, plus create a plan of action that you can follow or have them execute for you. They are trained to notice and consider things that you may not.
Interior Designers Help You Budget
Your designer will help you with a realistic budget and help you stick to it. He or she knows where to go for the best pieces for your home or office and this saves you endless amounts of time. They research and find it all for you, gather it together so you can see what it will look like before you ever purchase any products. Plus, it’s a one stop shop in that you purchase everything through your designer and one place to go with any questions you may have.
Interior Designers Are Liasons
When you are working with a contractor, your designer acts as a go-between and can communicate the design plan easily. We are trained to think about the details that you might not think about until it’s too late. It’s never too early in the process to think about the lighting and the furniture placement. Even before construction begins. I have seen many homes that could have done with a floor outlet or two and after the home is built, it’s too late.
Interior Designers Have “Connections”
Your designer has connections that are not always available to the general public. They can also create custom pieces for your home that you won’t find in your neighbor’s house and they know where to go to have them made.
Not only do they have more connections, they also have access to more vendors and items than what is available in your immediate area. This ensures that your home is a one of a kind masterpiece.
Interior Designers Bring the “WOW” Factor
Your designer can help you come up with design ideas that will make your friends and neighbors jealous. We believe that the drama should be in the design and we like to think of creative solutions to each design dilemma you may have. Interior design is an art, but it is also a skill that we have learned through years of practice and one that you can take advantage of for your own home.
Interior Designers Can Help Increase Your Home’s Value
Whether this is your forever home or you plan to sell, hiring a design or decorator will help you increase the value of your home through the materials and finishes chosen specifically for your home. The furnishings chosen will increase the perceived value of your home and those potential buyers will be able to more easily see themselves living there. The emotional impact of a well-designed home is what ultimately causes someone to buy. You may even recoup most, if not all of the design fees once your home sells.
Interior Designers Help You Avoid Overwhelm & Stress
Many homeowners get frustrated because of all the choices there are when decorating their home or office. A designer can pare down the choices to help you avoid overwhelm based on what you tell them in the initial consult. Make sure to tell us what you like as well as what you don’t. These factors help us determine a design direction and the more information you give us, the better.
By hiring an interior designer or decorator, you raise the level of your experience in your home. We can take that property you invested your hard-earned money in and make it into a home that you will enjoy for years to come. We can match your home to your personality and make it functional, beautiful, and supportive of your lifestyle. It’s a win-win situation!
