It happens so often...our clients actually apologize for not being able to design or decorate their own homes. For some reason, they feel like they should be able to pull it all together, and the call we eventually get is generally the raising of the white flag, the “I give up. I’m sorry. I can’t do it myself.” My response is always the same. “I don’t know what you do for a living yet, but I’m pretty sure I can’t do it.”
Your home is most likely your biggest investment. Creating an environment within your home that comforts you and makes you happy often takes a keen eye, a skilled plan and the help of a variety of qualified professionals, including an interior design team. A good design team can create and execute the dream home that’s living inside your head, making it a reflection of you and your personal style. Although hiring a designer is an investment, it also can save you money, by making sure you avoid costly mistakes and ultimately, through wise design decisions, increasing the value of your home.
Experienced designers don’t just think outside the box, they turn the box into something else entirely! A design team can help you navigate through a complicated remodel, saving you time and money by being a liaison between you and your hired contractors and vendors. With their vision and professional resources, they can create a space that is unique only to you.
Before hiring a designer, do your research and find someone whose portfolio reflects your own taste and vision. Meet with two or three and find the one that just “clicks” with you. Trust in your designer can make the experience enjoyable for everyone and the end result often reflects the fun you had with the process!
