Why you should considering hiring an Interior Designer for your next project
So you've made the decision to start a new home project or even to move and need to fully redesign a space or e a whole house? Where do you begin? Will you make the right choices? Will the decisions be long lasting? Where should I invest and where can I save some money?
These are all questions Interior Designers can help with and hopefully make the process more enjoyable for you!
Reason 1: It will save you Time
Sourcing and researching furniture options, paint colours, space savers and small decor items can be very time consuming and of course overwhelming. Interior Designers will have a myriad of options ready at their fingertips and if they don't they will know how to easily source these items for you. A designer already has a trained sense of what needs to be done and when it needs to be done, and they’ll be able to anticipate any obstacles that may come up.
Reason 2: You will have someone qualified to bounce ideas of
Apart from the overwhelming aspects of interior design sometimes you just need a sounding board who will not only listen but understand your needs from what you are describing and come up with a solution you may not have thought of. Interior Design is a qualification and comes with expertise and experience that we don't expect every client to have. Let us help you get to where you would like your space to be. When you hire a trained designer, you get an immediate plan of action for your space. Professional interior designers went to school and had several apprenticeships to do what they do.
A trained pair of eyes will see things you’re guaranteed to miss. Interior design is a delicate balance of art and science, and good interior designers have studied both, so they know how to put them together. If you want to learn more about what makes an interior designer an interior designer
Reason 3: They have contacts in the wider construction industry
A good designer will know how to speak the language when it comes to architects, contractors, and building owners. This is crucial in managing time and money. Strong communication between the interior design and the lighting, furnishing and architecture is absolutely key.
For example, proper outlet placement is going to depend on how you want your furniture placed. These types of issues should be addressed before any construction, and an interior designer will know exactly which issues need to be brought up.
Reason 4: It will give your home an additional 'WOW' factor
Interior designers are trained to think creatively and spatially. Thinking outside of the box when it comes to home decor is what designers do on the regular. You'll get attention to detail from proper lighting and furniture placement to fabric choices and colour palette and fixture options.
Designers can also get you furniture, fabric, and materials that are trade-only and not accessible to everyone else and when they’re done, not only will your home look beautiful and cohesive, but it’ll be well thought out and highly functional.
Reason 5: You will save money
Yes this seems strange but depending on project size can be very true. Furniture especially can look great in a shop or online but how will it look in your home- will there be enough space? Does it match and work with the items I already own?
Hiring a professional can help avoid costly mistakes and help make design decisions that will increase the value of your home.
And if you’re on a tight budget, a designer is going to know how to get the best value out of what you can spend. An experienced designer is used to working on a line item budget and will help you understand where every penny is going.
