If you have invested a good amount of money into your home, you may want to showcase it so it can reach its full potential. This is where an interior decorator will come in.
An interior decorator can help you no matter what your budget is and what you need to have done. Toss aside the assumption that all interior designers will be expensive and only for the famous. This is so far from the truth!
In reality, they can do a lot for you.
- Saves Money
Yes, an interior designer will charge you, but with this fee, they will be able to tell you what designs should be performed in order to give you the best return on your dollar and increase your home’s value.
If you hire an experienced interior designer in your town, there’s a good chance he/she knows where to get everything for a great price. Whether it’s a new set of pillows for the couch or flooring for the kitchen, they will be able to provide you with vendors they trust. They may also have connections that the public doesn’t know about.
Like the materials, a good interior designer will also be able to tell you about some great contractors in the area. As you may know, a good contractor is often hard to come by, and it may be hard to find someone who is licensed and insured. These contacts will save you a lot of time and headaches.
- “Wow” Factor
If you want to walk through your front door and feel as if you’re in a model home, then an interior designer is a no brainer. Designers are trained to think differently and are able to make your home “pop.”
- Help Sell
Those who plan on selling their house soon may want to get the help of an interior designer. Designer will know which changes you need to make in order to increase your home’s value. Wouldn’t it be great to invest $10,000 to make an additional $25,000 on your home sale?
- Use of Space
There’s nothing worse than walking into a room that has a lot of blank space. Even worse, it can be frustrating if you don’t know what should be in that space. Again, since designers are able to see things differently, they can make sure every square foot is used accordingly.
- The Dirty Work
Most designers are more than happy to work with contractors for you. They will be able to ask the right questions and point contractors in the right direction to make your dreams a reality. Oftentimes, if you work with a contractor, it can be hard to put your vision into words, and this is where a professional can come into play.
Those who don’t hire a designer often find themselves at the local big box store purchasing the same picture thousands of other homes have. If you want to be unique, a designer’s mind is a one of a kind and knows where to purchase those unique items that you will be sure to enjoy.
- Solve Problems
Every homeowner has the one area in the house that they just don’t like. This could be the bathroom counter or the layout of the bedroom. Regardless of what your problem is, designer will have a solution that you’re bound to love.
- Less Stress
Wouldn’t it be great to go to work, come home, relax and go to bed at night without having to worry about purchasing furniture or hiring a contractor? As you know, stress can do a lot of harm to your health, and if you have a designer to help you with most of your work, it can take a lot of weight off your shoulders.
