10 Reasons for Hiring an Interior Designer
1. To Provide Solutions
Each project, large or small, presents challenges – whether it is a lack of storage, poor traffic flow, color scheme, unusual window sizes or a need to maximize light and space.
2. To Prevent Costly Mistakes
So many choices, too many options – not to mention questions concerning whether to choose one product over another. There are so many things that are hard to know unless you have encountered them dozens of times before like I have.
3. To Provide Resources
There's a world of furnishings, fabrics, case goods and accessories that are available "to the trade only." I have access to local and national manufacturers and products that are otherwise unavailable to most consumers.
4. To Help You Stay Well Connected
Design is only as good as its execution. I work with the best workrooms, carpenters and painters and have the clout to make sure that prices match the quality.
5. To Provide Guidance
I know sources well enough to edit the options and offer seasoned advice to guide you through the myriad of design choices.
6. To Provide Convenience
I save you shopping time and work on-site. In other words, I bring the "store" to you.
7. To Set Priorities
I can help allocate your "design dollars" to let you know how best to spend your money now and save future phases of your design project for later.
8. To Be Your Liaison and Advocate
I work with trade-people and manufacturers regularly and therefore have more leverage to get things repaired or replaced when necessary.
9. To Help You Work Through Opposing Tastes
I can be the third party to mediate taste and style between spouses, business partners or whomever else is involved in the decision making process.
10. To Get the Job Done
I make sure everything is completed. Often when a project drags on for months, some might be inclined to leave a few details undone if they are doing it themselves. It's my job to see that every aspect of the project is completed to your satisfaction.
