Should I hire an interior designer?

~written by Tien Frogget

If you’ve thought at all about redesigning your home or even just one of the rooms in your house, you might be wondering whether or not it’s worth it to hire an interior designer.

You might be looking at colors and styles that you like, thinking, “I could to that! I don’t need a designer.”

At first glance, it might seem easy. But the truth is, if you haven’t done any design before or know some of the basic principles of design, you’re probably going to quickly realize that it’s a lot more difficult than you might think.

You may decide on a color scheme and style, but then realize as you are shopping that actually finding what you want can be tricky. Or you might find what you want but it costs three times what you can afford.

After weeks of searching, you finally bring home various elements that you like, only to discover that they don’t all fit together in a room or they don’t look as good together as you thought. Then you realize you’ve spent way more money than you originally intended and have to spend more trying to return that couch that is just three inches too long and search for something else.

A good interior designer can take all of the hassle and guesswork out of the process, and streamline it for you. They are going to make sure that the end result is an interior that you not just like, but LOVE.

They will:
  • Ask you questions about what you like and what you want in order to come up with something that is the perfect fit for your own personal style.
  • Be the bridge between you and the design world, able to use all of their expertise and knowledge to best serve you.
  • Bring your project together on time and on budget! Interior designers know where to go to find the best styles and furniture that will fit the design perfectly and get them for the designer’s price – not the retail that you would be paying in store! This typically means that you will get a lot more bang for your buck.
  • Do all of the hard work for you – you get to sit back and relax and spend your time doing what you want to do.
  • Create a design that is perfect for you!
