Interior design is about problem-solving – the best layout for your room, adequate lighting and balancing the type of lighting, selecting the best fabrics and finishes for the client’s lifestyle, planning for age or disabilities, and so much more
Hiring an interior designer will not cost as much as customers generally fear, in fact, a professional designer will often save their customer money by selecting the correct products and finishes the first time.
Professional interior designers will not impose their taste and style on you, rather the process is about clarifying your style and helping your style shine. But for this process to be successful, a client must be willing to be upfront with their likes and dislikes
Interior designers can select products in a wide range of prices, so it is important to be clear about your budget in the first meeting.
The design process should be fun and take away some of the stress many clients have when selecting finishes for an entire room or a whole house.
I always tell my clients that my job is to present options and to push them out of their comfort zone. Good interior design is always evolving, and if you stay in your comfort zone then your project can start to feel outdated very quickly. Your comfort zone is what you see every day (we covet what we know), and that’s already on its way out. So you have to select items that are new to you to end up with a project that has the longest relevant life.
A few things to consider
If you are in need of help with your design project, hiring an interior designer can help improve your space and ultimately your mood and well-being. A well-designed room is more than something you just try to make look pretty.
Hiring a pro can ensure that you get the best results that leave you feeling confident about your freshly designed room because a professional designer understands your goals. A well-designed room is interesting, it is layered, it uses color to boost mood, and it tells your story.
