An interior designer can help you in many ways, avoiding costly mistakes is just one of them. The benefit of using interior designers’ services as opposed to a contractor or architect is that an interior designer starts the design with how the people living in the space will use it and then the designer creates a space that fits them perfectly. It should be both aesthetically pleasing and functional before the project can be considered a true success.
What are the 10 best reasons to hire a professional Interior Designer?
1. Save Money
It might sound strange that hiring a designer to design your home would save you money since you have the additional design fee, however, hiring us can help you avoid costly mistakes that will not only help you save money but will increase the value of your home. Especially when selling your home – interior design is essential when listing your home; a well-designed home can boost a buyer’s interest and set your home above the competition.
2. Professional Assessment
Our designers can give you a professional assessment of your situation and lead to a solid plan of action. The order of things in a design plan is crucial in determining what can be re-purposed or should be edited. This will not only affect the budget but help you to spend the money more efficiently. A designer offers an extra set of eyes but these eyes are trained to see and notice things that you may not otherwise give a second thought.
3. Budgeting and Planning
Our design team can keep you on budget and save you time and effort. Our designers know where to go for resources for everything related to your home and to the particular design of the space. This will save you endless time researching products, brands and prices. CDG has a plethora of resources readily available but if we do not, we will spend the time researching so that you do not have to.
Our designers will be able to build a stronger bridge between you and your architect or contractor early on; we can divert design misses in your overall plan. This is crucial in managing time and money. Also, we are trained to think about things that we may have overlooked. It is so important that the lighting and furnishing needs are addressed before construction, if your living room sofa is floating in the middle of the room you want to make sure you have the proper placement for floor outlets.
5. Extensive Resource Availability
There are things available to designers that are not available to the general public in terms of connections, resources and general merchandise. By culminating these resources our designers can help to make your space look more collected, unique and pulled together.
In addition to vendor resources, we have many home improvement industry contacts. We can save homeowners time and headaches trying to identify reliable, contractors, plumbers, and electricians for their projects.
7. Wow Factor
Designers can help to give you that “wow” factor that you have been looking for. They are trained to think differently, spatially, and to see an overall picture that clients often cannot. “Thinking outside of the box” is what our designers do all day, every day.
8. Home Sale
A designer can potentially add a great deal to the aesthetic appeal in your home, which in turn, can increase showings and sales. This increased appeal can speed up the amount of time your home sits on the market exponentially before it is sold. The benefit here is two-fold, a faster turn-around time, and more money in your pocket.
9. A trained eye
A designer is a professional with a trained eye that can automatically tell you if there is something wrong or right with a space. Having that immediate consult is a major advantage when making aesthetic decisions. It is the result of years of experience. Often times homeowners try to do it all themselves and get frustrated.
10. Visual story-teller
Interior design is a skill and an art that will only enhance the space and the quality of your life in the space. Hiring a professional designer for your project raises the level of experience that will make your house a home. A designer can help you tell your visual story--I can’t think of a better reason than that to hire a designer to design incredible spaces in your home!
