Many people think that hiring an interior designer will be too expensive or that they will lose control over their project. This is not always true. The services of a qualified interior designer are crucial to avoid costly mistakes, stay within your budget, have access to better resources and, create functional spaces for working and living.
First and foremost, hiring an interior designer will help you avoid expensive mistakes such as buying disproportionate furniture, painting a room the wrong shade or hiring bad contractors. A designer offers you a set of trained eyes that see things you may not. This will positively affect your budget and help you spend it more efficiently. In addition, the average person does not always understand the order in which things should be done and this is key in interior design and construction. A designers professional assessment and guidance will give you a much more solid plan of action.
A designer will not only give you a realistic budget but they will help you stick to it. Designers have their own tested resources which save you a ton of time and effort. They have access to trade resources and general merchandise that are not readily available to the general public. They can also find a way to re purpose your old things and make them like new again. Instead of buying something new they will take an old piece that you love and breathe a new life into it. Besides vendor resources designers also have reliable home improvement industry contacts so you don’t have to spend your time trying to find reliable contractors, plumbers, electricians etc. Contractors can be pretty intimidating and clients frequently don’t want to argue or ask for more than they are given. This is where your designer comes in, they ask the right questions and make something that earlier “could not be done” possible.
Consider hiring a designer next time you’re thinking about renovating or redecorating your spaces. Yes, there is a cost involved, but a designer can not transfer their taste, sense of color, or resources to you. In the end it pays off to have someone bring your ideas to life and make your home everything you want it to be and more.
