As interior design professionals, it is our goal to simplify and streamline the design and construction process, making your investment in a trained expert well worth it. Here are reasons why hiring an interior designer is a good idea.
SAVING TIME. Time is a precious resource. A designer has a trained sense of what needs to be done and when, and will be able to anticipate any obstacles that may come up.
SAVING MONEY. This may seem counter-intuitive since 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 enable you to make design decisions that will increase the value of your home. 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.
PROFESSIONAL ASSESSMENT AND EXPERTISE. An interior designer is a trained professional who is experienced in the art and science of interior architecture and design. A good interior designer will carefully consider form and function, while creating a space with the unique needs and preferences of the end user in mind. A trained pair of eyes will see things you are guaranteed to miss and will have a plenty of experiences and past projects to reference when making decisions.
QUALIFIED LIASON. A good designer is a liaison between the client and the architect, contractor, structural engineers, plumber, electrician and other trades. Interior designer understands the language of the design and construction industry and will help you make informed decisions and communicate well with all those involved on the project.
RESOURCES AND CONTACTS. Being immersed in the design and construction industry, a designer is indispensable in having access to pre-qualified and trusted trade professional and go-to materials and resources. Interior designer also has access and knowledge of products that are not accessible to the general public.
WOW FACTOR! A good interior designer has spent considerable amount of time immersed in the industry, learning technical and product knowledge, industry standards, art principles, and design trends. A good designer is a creative thinker, problem solver and has an innate sense of style that allows them to make thought out decisions with regards to the aesthetics and functionality of the space. Successful design professional will have a combination of training, expertise and an innate understanding of design principles that will result in an end product that is as visually stunning as it is functional.
