There are more and more options out there for you to get a custom designed room from a professional, in easier ways than you can imagine. One of the most interesting ways is sometimes referred to as, Interior Design In A Box. It allows individuals to work with a designer or decorator in a whole new way. Have any doubts on why working with a designer is at all worth doing? I highly suggest you read ‘Why Hire A Designer‘ and you’ll quickly understand all that we do for you.
With design in a box, you essentially share all of your needs and wants with a designer. You then allow them to provide you with their choices and recommendations in a neat little box. It is then up to you, the client, to complete the work. This means you do the ordering, painting, and installing. It’s more like working with a decorator who makes the choices and lets you do the hard work. Don’t forget there is a difference between a designer and a decorator.
As with everything, I could never qualify this as being right or wrong for anyone. It totally depends on your wants, needs, and financial capabilities. I’ll break it down, and you can decide for yourself.
This is potentially one of the cheapest ways to work with a designer. You are paying for the bare minimum, and are still getting a beautifully designed room.
You’ve been able to share your tastes, and receive a room that was hand-picked by a professional. The idea’s may come in a box, but the end results are entirely customized to suit you.
Stick To Budget
Part of the charm is that everything picked is going to keep you within your budget. Unless you start to go off track, you shouldn’t be doing any extra spending.
More Work For You
One of the great parts about working with a designer is that they do all of the work for you. All you have to do is sit back and say yes or no. However when decorating a room in this way, you’re going to have to do the ordering, checking in, picking up, painting, and putting out of all fires. There are always fires.
Not So Unique
You should no doubt be getting a great looking room in the end, but it is not exactly one of a kid. Projects done in this way tend to be much more cookie cutter. So if this is not for you, I’d really think about making this very clear, or going in a different direction.
Not So Personal
Having that personal one on one experience with a designer is nicer than you may realize. As a designer, I can gain real insight into someones taste and desires the more time I spend with them. Losing this is hard on us as well as you. It certainly changes the outcome of the finished product as well.
So what do you think about Interior Design In A Box? Crazy? Or makes perfect sense?
