Do I Need an Interior Designer?
We’ve all got aspirations to have a home that literally takes away the breath of whomever walks into our homes. Our Pinterest boards are filled with dreams of what our ideal décor looks like, and if we only had the time, we’d make it happen ourselves, right?
With inspiration pulled from all the newest emerging web services and sites (Pinterest and Houzz, just to name a few), many homeowners looking to revitalize their space pose one questions, “Do I really need an interior designer?” It’s definitely a valid question! One thing we know for sure – you get what you pay for with your designer. Experience, expertise and a creative eye all factor into why we believe choosing the perfect professional designer is the way to go. Beyond that, we think a few of the reasons listed below may help you make your decision and get you one step closer to your flawless space.
Keep Function in Mind
How many times have you seen a piece at a store that caught your eye immediately and you bought it on the spot, only to take it home and realize it didn’t fit? An interior designer will keep your home’s function in mind, considering the purpose for each room and selecting pieces that will supplement that function while keeping layout and spacing top of mind. I personally believe that every item I add to a client’s design has a unique function, coming together to make the room one cohesive living space. The designer you choose should always work to create a layout that will nurture your lifestyle in a harmonious way.
Expertise Goes a Long Way
Not only will an interior designer keep your space functional, but he or she will also avoid common mistakes that many without expertise can make. A great designer will know all the rules on materials, styling, sizing and colors and when it’s acceptable to break them. No more clashing metallics or textures, or furniture leaving your guests sitting at different heights across the room. Bring each room in your home together with a little expert touches here and there.
