How Can An Interior Designer Help Me?

One out of every five phone calls is from homeowners needing help because they have bought some furniture pieces that look great in the store, but when they bring it home - oops it doesn’t fit or it just doesn’t look quite right.

You may think hiring an interior designer is only for the rich and famous (or someone foolish enough to toss away good money for no reason), but in reality an interior designer can save you money and time (and lots of anxiety medication).

I know, it just seems little counterintuitive, how can spending money on an interior designer save you money? Interior Designers can definitely save you money. Not to mention saving you hours of frustration and worry? Would that be a good thing?

How Can An Interior Designer Help Me? #1 Creating a Step-by-Step Action Plan

It all starts with a good plan and good advice. I know your sister might meant well when she said to buy that sculpture, but now it just stares at you all creepy like. Then there was the time when you went shopping with your best friend and she talked you into buying that rug, but geez it doesn’t even fit in the room. Or what about when you and your hubby were out shopping? He said “sure” when asked if you should get that sectional, but in reality he just wanted to make you happy. Guess what? All these items on their own might look fantastic, but when they're put together – no not so much!

By hiring an interior designer you get a fresh opinion and a new set of eyes that can tell you things you might not have even thought of before. A designer can also look at what you have and figure out what to reuse, what to toss (I know Great Aunt Milly gave you that vase, but really?), and what to add.  It is all about figuring out your style and an interior designer can help you get a step-by-step plan written specifically for each of your rooms so that every piece coordinates perfectly. Also, with a scaled layout, you’ll know exactly what will work and what will not work.

How Can An Interior Designer Help Me? #2 Exclusive Access to All The Good Stuff

Designers know where to go for resources for everything related to your home. It may be fun to run around to furniture stores or cruise around the internet, but when it comes to making the big purchase (that you will have to live with for many years), wouldn’t it be nice to know for sure that it is the right choice?  Whether it is the perfect recliner or the perfect light fixture, we have the inside track on stuff that regular ole folks don’t have access to. Also, designers keep up to date on what is trending and what is not, so you won’t make mistakes or take a big hit to your pocketbook.

How Can An Interior Designer Help Me? #3 Protecting Your Wallet

Setting a budget and sticking to the budget is one of the things that designers do best, believe it or not.  It is easy to get caught up in the moment, when you are out shopping at the big weekend sale, but if it isn’t right, it isn’t a bargain. Or more importantly, if it isn’t part of the “master plan,” then it is just a waste of both, time and money. You tell us how much you want to invest and we figure out how to get you the pulled together look you want without breaking the bank.
