4 Reasons Why You Need An Interior Designer
4 Reasons Why You Need An Interior DesignerYes, we know. If you wanted to design a home for free on your own, you can totally do it! There’s no promise your vision for the home will be properly executed, though. It can also be a $10,000 mistake… And we definitely don’t want that. Here’s our 4 reasons why you need to hire an interior designer when you’re renovating your home.
1 – You’re going to have better resources and contacts.Everyone knows it’s difficult to find good resources. But designers already work in the world of home improvement, so they’re going to have reliable connections that you may need. Hiring a designer will help you easily find an electrician, plumber, and/or contractor that you can trust. Designers also have access to tons of product and fabric that is not available to the general public. With these resources, an interior designer will create a space for you that looks collected and unique (instead of the big box retailer stuff everyone has in their home).
2 – You’re going to have the “Wow Factor”.Interior designers are trained to think creatively and spatially and learn to see an overall picture that clients often cannot. Thinking outside of the box is what designers do on the regular. Not only will you get a good design sense, but you’ll also get an attention to detail from proper lighting and furniture placement to fabric choices and color palette and fixture options. A professional interior designer will create custom-designed pieces to make sure everything fits perfectly and is truly special to your home. Designers can also get you certain furniture, fabric, and materials that’s trade-only and not accessible to everyone else. People notice a well-designed home. Try to do it by yourself, and you’re stuck juggling the many elements that go into designing that a designer is specifically trained to do. And when they’re done, not only will your home look beautiful and cohesive, but it’ll be well thought out and highly functional.
3 – You’re going to save a lot of your time.There are two things most people wish they could have more of: time and money. Just like hiring a designer will benefit you financially, a designer will also save you on time. 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. There’s very little guesswork to do based on their experience in repeating this process hundreds of times!
4 – You’re going to save money.Ever bought a piece of furniture that looked so good in the store, but was a too big once you got it home? Ever painted three or four times trying to find the right color palette? It may seem like like an oxymoron because you’re going to have to pay the additional designer’s fee, but the truth is that hiring a designer can help you avoid costly mistakes and help you 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.
