I get asked all the time, “Why should I hire an Interior Designer?” and I find myself giving far too many reasons. In the end I have concluded that there are 5 reasons hiring an Interior Designer or Decorator is a good thing. So read through this and you decide whether or not it’s time to work with a decorator or designer. If you still want more, see ‘Benefits of Hiring an Interior Designer‘ to learn how to find the right designer.
1. Beautiful Place that Represents You
The most obvious reason is that you get yourself a beautiful place that is both functional and screams YOU. It should be visually pleasing, and should work in the best possible way for you and your family.
Everything from the furniture layout, to the color choices, to the accent pieces on your mantle, they are all well thought out and work together cohesively in the space. Every detail, line, and feature, affects the overall outcome of the space. Your home can now be something you’re proud to show off, as well as and live in.
2. Cost Effective
It may be shocking for you to hear this, but hiring a decorator or designer can actually save you money in the long run. Really. I swear! After all it is our job to keep you on track with a budget you have set, and we do everything we can to ensure this happens. When you’re doing it on your own you tend to spend money on pieces that are just a total waste of money.
I do everything in my power to prevent those costly mistakes that most people make. These mistakes would otherwise cost you money in the long run. It’s so easy to buy the wrong piece and get stuck with it. Or you buy something that you just have to replace because it simply won’t last long enough. These are easy mistakes that a designer or decorator know how to avoid, and we do.
How long can someone go on despising their space, furniture, layout, or just have a plain lack of interest. Think about it. You have probably been thinking for years, “I should do something to make this place nicer”, and yet you’ve barely made a dent. Well your decorator will get it done rather quickly. There is no reason why it needs to take that long to do anything.
Don’t like dealing with the issues that comes up? You don’t have to, we do. The designer is the one who negotiates, yells, or bargains with the customer service rep. You don’t even have to hear about it if you don’t want to. We do all of the boring and difficult leg work, you just say yes or no. Easy right?
4. Greater Resources
We have a large deal of resources at our disposal. With these greater resources you get more options of furniture and decor pieces. This includes pieces that you would otherwise have a hard time finding yourself. This also means you’re more likely to get something that is unique. Meaning you won’t be seeing it at 10 other friends homes.
More resources also means we have more connections with pieces that are cheaper. So when you end up spending too much on that sofa and upholstery, we could have gotten it for you at a much cheaper rate. Maybe even a sofa that you would have liked a little more.
5. It Will Actually Get Done
As I stated earlier, you have probably been putting off the effort of making your home a nice place to live. As with most things that take energy or time, it’s easy to come up with excuses as to why you can just do it later. Well hiring a professional will cause you to get it done now. Imagine, in less than a month you could have the place you have been dreaming about for years. This to me is the most important reason of all. Don’t you want a place you’re proud of? Sure you do. We all do.
