When it comes to your home, you want everything to be perfect. From the color of the walls to the placement of the furniture, every detail matters.
Are you feeling overwhelmed with the idea of redesigning your home? Do you think it will be too expensive, or take up too much of your time?
Relax – interior design doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. In fact, there are a number of reasons why hiring an interior designer is a wise decision.
If you're unsure of how to achieve your vision, or simply don't have the time to put everything together, hiring an interior designer can be a great opportunity to get exactly what you want without investing a lot of your time into it.
Let’s look at some of the top reasons to hire an interior designer.
12 Best Reasons to Hire an Interior Designer Now
1. Seeing the big picture.
Part of an interior designer’s skills is seeing the grand idea before knowing everything that goes into the design. Developing a plan is of utmost importance so that the outcome is achieved. Working with a designer allows you to see the vision before making any purchases which can alleviate the fear of “what if I don’t like it scenario.”
2. Being obsessed with the details.
Not only do designers see the forest through the trees (big picture), but we see how every leaf on every branch of every tree adds to the forest. This means we know that details matter. Every element in the space should have a specific purpose, that adds to the space and the overall feeling being generated within the room. Details make the whole design come together.
3. You'll save (a lot of) time.
If you’re busy with work, kids, or life in general, taking on a renovation or other design project can be overwhelming. Let a designer take this off your plate and do the “heavy lifting” while you relax and watch it all come together. You still get to approve every item, but you don’t have to spend hours and hours searching for the perfect item.
4. Making the process fun!
Instead of worrying about how everything is going to look together, we make it easy and fun for you to be in control of what is going in your home. We make our suggestions (I personally write detailed reasoning behind each item) and you are free to accept or decline anything. When we reveal a design, it’s a curated selection, made especially for you. It’s like a visual gift bag of beautiful home finds just for you.
5. Staying on budget.
When designer’s are given a budget, it’s our duty to stick by it. Every once in a while I’ll have a client who wants to keep a tight budget, but is willing to go above it for one-of-a-kind pieces. Working with a designer can help you two fold: keeping your budget in check, but also having access to opportunities for family heirloom pieces. We are here to find what items will provide you the most value over the long-term.
6. Creating more functional spaces.
If you’re considering an overhaul of a room, creating a new furniture layout can be one way to increase the functionality of your space. We don’t just add things into a room to make it pretty, but we want you to be able to use your home in an effortless way.
7. Relieving pain points.
Sometimes there are things that just drive us crazy in our homes! Maybe is old carpet on the stairs or maybe it’s a wall that's preventing the open concept feel. Whatever “it” is, we are here to remove that pain point and discover a new way to enjoy your home more fully.
8. Unique design solutions.
Are you feeling stuck? If so, this is one of the best reasons to hire a designer. I love getting creative to develop unique ideas that work for a client's home. Pinterest is great for overall designs, but not everything is specially designed for your home. Your home has intricacies and nuances that will need custom solutions. Working with a designer can help you get the style you want for your specific needs.
9. Pressing the easy button.
Most people don’t always consider all the time and work that goes into what designers call the "procurement process". This includes ordering, receiving, verifying, possibly returning/re-ordering, scheduling, and final delivery and set-up in your home. Press the easy button, and let us do all that behind the scenes. You’ll save yourself a lot of frustration and time.
10. Styled like a pro.
If you want a home that is picture perfect, it helps to have a designer style it for you. This is the staging process where we are putting all the items together in the space, and finding its perfect final resting spot in your home. You get the styled look without lifting a finger.
11. The "WOW!" factor
Elevate your space to something greater than you can imagine. I love putting in the “Wow” factor into clients’ homes. For me, I get the greatest feeling when I see tears of joy swelling in my client's eyes when they see their home for the first time. Creating a sense of awe in someone's home our driving purpose.
12. Invigorating your soul.
As a holistic designer, I don’t just want your home to be beautiful or function better. I want you to feel recharged by your home on a soul-depth level. By incorporating elements that speak to the unique, amazing person you are, your inner beauty will be reflected in the home that surrounds you. You'll be enjoying your home for many years to come because it is an expression of who you are.
A professional interior designer will work with you to create a space that reflects your unique style and meets your functional needs. But interior designers can do so much more than that!
In addition to helping you choose the right furniture and accessories, a holistic designer can elevate your space in a way that will lift your spirit by being around the items, colors, textures and elements that provide deeper meaning and connection for you.
With their expertise, you can be confident that your home will look its best so you can feel your best.
So what are you waiting for?
If you're ready to take your space (and maybe your life!) to the next level, hiring an interior designer could be the best investment you can make for yourself.
