Benefits of hiring a Professional Interior Designer & Decorator
Updated: Aug 17, 2019
Designing a home is a very personal venture. Homeowners who would like to create a beautiful interior search and look for sources of inspiration in magazines, websites, showrooms and stylish furniture stores; however creating a cohesive, beautiful and functional design which pulls the room together can be a daunting and time-consuming task for the average homeowner. Unless they previously hired an interior designer, very few understand how designers work and believe it’s too expensive to hire one and are not aware of the many advantages.
Beautiful interiors don’t have to cost the earth. A designer can work within a reasonable specified budget and save you money along the way by providing quality items that will last, using specific fabrics and, materials to suit your tasks, family and lifestyle. It takes skills and a trained eye to know where to spend generously and where to save big to create a space that looks tailored and complete. Some designers share part of the trade discounts with their clients which would help underwrite the design fees saving you money across the board.
Maybe you have a good idea of what you like and all you need is help in making some decisions. If you don’t have the budget to re-decorate the entire house, a designer can still work with you, spacing the project in different stages.
Designers constantly work with a skilled team of artisans and trades they trust. Their reputation highly depends on the workmanship of the trades they use; therefore you are most likely to end up with superior quality products.
Designers are knowledgeable on products and where to source them, they have a vast database of suppliers to source unique materials, furniture and furnishings exclusively available to the trade that you may have never heard of or seen. No need to spend all your weekends in furniture centres looking for that elusive perfect piece!
A well designed and decorated home can make a huge difference come to sale day. A beautiful decorated and presented property will appeal to more buyers which in turn can speed up the sale of the property making it stand out from competition and increase the price due to higher demand.
THE RESULT OF A BEAUTIFUL , UNIQUE AND CONSIDERED SPACE
A home provides a canvas in which the designer can illustrate who the owners are, making sure the client achieves the look they want reflecting their lifestyle, stories and their travels as well as making sure it functions beautifully. Hiring an interior designer/decorator guarantees a beautifully executed project, perfectly scaled furniture, a seamless flow of colour, and effective use of pattern and accessories arranged in the most appealing of ways. Since every space is different, many factors are taken in consideration when designing a space.
Two or three hours with a professional can get you right on track, assist you with colour choices, solve many of your problems immediately and ensure you are not making costly mistakes.
