There may be things that you have not considered and when you want professional services, you go to the professionals for help. So, we want to help you be equipped to answer the question, “why use an interior designer?”
First and foremost, they will save you money, and who does not love that. They will also save you time, eliminate headaches, and create a space that is uniquely you.
Designers are available for everyone, many think that the cost of a designer is too expensive, but that is a misconception. Knowing they will save you money, should have your interest, but how do they do this?
An Interior Designer understands your wishes, the flow of the space, how to combine fabrics and architectural finishes and how furniture placement matters for the function of the space, is insurance you won’t have to replace items. You want to enjoy your space right away, not having to “fix” your mistakes if you mess up sofas, sinks, bathtubs, tiles or appliances. Those are where the costs can become expensive for you.
You have your dream collection of photos for your space, but now what. Interior designers have the resources you dream of at their fingertips. They know which lines are best for you and your budget, where you can save to free up your budget to spend elsewhere on those statement pieces. This also avoids you spending as you go, since a designer sets the scene and thus the plan and strategy for all your purchases.
We know how to achieve your dream space with your budget. There is a tremendous amount of decisions to make and a designer can steer you towards the right finishes, fixtures, furniture and materials that are right for you. Often when you are looking at tiles you may fall in love with one that is out of your budget but decide to go for it, then next it happens again with fixtures. Designers keep selections and options from the start in your budget range so you can safely fall in love knowing they have you covered.
At the start of any interior design you are full of excitement and enthusiasm, but as the project goes on you start to lose steam. Interior Designers keep the excitement the whole way through, this is our passion, so we will motivate you and reduce the time it would take if you did it on your own, avoiding the loss of steam. Making the process as enjoyable as the end result.
With money saved, let’s add saving time and how we do that.
