You've put so much time into your home to make it yours, why not take the extra step to make each room in your home pop and have people walk away with the "wow" factor? That's when it's time to call in the pros and hire an interior designer.
Is an interior designer for you? We'd like to think so! But there can be quite a stigma that attaches itself to the idea of hiring a designer for your own home. It's hard to get out of the mindset that an interior designer is just for the rich and famous. Before we go on, you need to throw that idea out. Hiring an interior designer is an option for anyone, and should be considered an option for anyone that is building a home or wanting to redecorate. You still might be hesitant and wondering why hiring an interior designer is so important and what their skills and abilities can do for you that you wouldn't be able to do for yourself. In short, it's quite a bit. They can give you more than you realize, and save you more time and energy than you might guess.
To The Point
You put so much time and energy investing in your home. Why not take the opportunity to make it shine? It might be intimidating to think about hiring a professional interior designer, but they offer a purpose to everyone out there. If decorating isn't your strongest suit, if you need help creating the vision inside of your head without breaking the bank or possibly your home, or you just don't have the time and energy to make it come to life, that's when a designer can step in. Think of it as another investment for your home. You will be adding value to the home itself and quite possibly avoiding making expensive and painful mistakes if you try to decorate or remodel yourself. If you do decide to sell your house, a beautifully decorated home can sell faster and make it stand out against its competitors on the market. The decoration and design can help potential buyers see the true potential of each space inside the home, and they can see themselves living there clearly.
Time and Money
It's so easy to go out to your favorite home goods and furniture stores and pick out and buy everything you love without thinking about it. Impulse buys are so dangerous because the fear of not getting an item in time or forgetting what you've picked out is an easy trap to fall into. How many times have you had the opportunity to decorate a new home or room and the excitement takes over more than your bank account? It happens! With an interior designer, they can help you create a plan of action for each space, create a budget and stick to it, and keep the project going and finish it on time. You don't need to worry about carving out extra time after work or on the weekends to finish your decorating. You lose the stress and responsibility of the project and end up with your perfect dream space exactly on time. You aren't spending hours walking the isles of stores or scanning through hundreds of web pages to find exactly what you want. This will be in the hands of your designer, too. Interior designers also have connections to buyers, stores, and retailers that you would not. They can get deals, pieces of furniture or decorations, and materials that you might not even know exist or be able to buy. They can also get better deals and prices with their connections, saving you money and staying on budget. Say goodbye to impulse buying and spending, too. An interior designer knows exactly what they are looking for and where to find it. You also won't be worrying about how to put down grout for your beautiful floor tile, or learning how to put up wallpaper, or learning an intricate painting technique. Your designer already knows how to do that and how to get it done properly.
Nothing left Untouched
An interior designer provides another set of eyes to your home and for your ideas. They can make suggestions on how to make your dreams work, or offer suggestions you might have never thought of before. If they are hired during the process of building your home or while you're redecorating or redoing your home, they can communicate with your architect faster and in a way you might not be able to. They can see any details of the design or build that was missed, not finished, or forgotten about, and get them taken care of without you having to worry about it. In any construction or building process, you really wouldn't be involved. Your interior designer can be without getting in the way. They can catch these mistakes and know how to communicate with your architect properly. A designer can take care of any problems that might arise during construction or while the room is being decorated, helping the project stay on schedule.
Remember, an interior designer is a professional. They've gone to school for their craft and know what they're doing. It's their job to be up to date on trends, materials, and any kind of design that goes into decorating. They can help you discover what you want and they know how to communicate with you to get exactly what you want for your space. There also won't be any surprises when the project is finished. Since they know how to communicate with you, they know how to create the image you've mapped out for them.
Investing in an interior designer is an important part of any home. It's an investment that will give you your own beautiful unique space, save you a headache and money, and give your home value it might never have had before. Don't be afraid to say YES to the opportunity of a designer. They are here and waiting to give you the home of your dreams.
