Many consumers are somewhat intimidated by the thought of hiring an interior designer. They worry they’ll lose control of the design, or the budget, and that the finished room may not be to their liking.
But here are some points you may not have thought of:
- Hiring a designer can help you to avoid costly mistakes that will not only help you save money in the long run, but can increase the value and marketability of your home.
- A designer can give an unbiased assessment of your situation, and can help to determine what items can be repurposed or donated.
- A designer can be critical in spending available dollars most effectively.
- A designer can keep you on budget and save you time and effort. A designer knows where to go for resources for everything related to your home. This will save you endless amounts of time researching products, brands and prices. A designer will have all this readily on hand, and should he or she not, will spend the time researching so that you don’t have to.
- A designer can be a key professional in the planning stages for a new home or renovation. Designers are trained to think about things that may be overlooked. A space plan should be done while the home is still in the blueprint stage so lighting and electrical can be planned for, such as in-floor plugs if your furniture will float in a room. Sometimes just adding a short length to a wall will allow a piece of furniture to fit that would not otherwise work.
- A designer is a professional with a trained eye that can automatically tell you if there is something wrong or right with a space.
