The Top 5 Reasons to Use an Interior Designer
What are the top 5 reasons to use an Interior Designer?
By Eleanor Goddard
Using the services of an Interior Designer was once thought of as only being for the rich and famous, but with more home owners than ever caring about the look and feel of their homes it has become something more and more people are choosing to do. But what it is that makes them decide to take this leap of faith to decide to use an Interior Designer?
1. Nice or WOW
So you love your home and want to give it a refresh – are you simply looking for a result that is OK, or do you want your friends and family to walk into your home and say “WOW!”. Unless you are trained, experienced and have a flair for design it is extremely unlikely that you will be able to achieve the same results as a designer would for you. Buying random things you like and putting them together in a room rarely works well, if you are lucky it might be nice enough. An interior designer, however, knows how to unlock the true potential of the space and will plan the best possible design for you and the way that you want to live your life – that’s the difference that creates the WOW!
2. Save money
This might sound counter intuitive but a good interior designer will ensure that you avoid any costly mistakes. With their knowledge of the market place they will be able to secure products and services that you didn’t even know existed that may well save you both money and time.
3. Reduce the stress
Some people may love spending hours on pinterest or pouring through pattern books, but most people are busy and feel slightly overwhelmed at the thought of trying to make all the choices.
An interior designer will know their pattern library inside out and will be able to quickly signpost to you the styles that will be suitable for you and will then be able to build a cohesive scheme around your preferred choices.
You also won’t have to spend hours deliberating “does this go, or not?” as your designer will know instantly and can provide you with that reassurance.
4. Practical as well as beautiful
You might only be thinking about how your new room will look when you are choosing the décor, but when you pull down the blinds you may well be wishing you had explored the option to ingrate a bit of tech and have a motorised blind.
Using an interior designer will mean that you are aware of all of the options out there and they will be the one responsible for ensuring that it all works well at a practical level as well as looking fabulous!
5. To keep the peace
Most of the time several people are involved in the decision making process and they don’t always agree! An interior designer will be able to find common group amongst all the parties involved ensuring that everyone is happy and a decision can be made.
6. To increase the value of your home
Ok, so if we haven’t yet convinced you that using an Interior Designer this probably will. It could be argued that having a well designed interior might not actually increase the valuation per square metre of a property – but it will definitely increase the buyer appeal should it be placed on the market, and lots of buyers after the same property will inevitably push up the sale price.
However, if you aren’t planning on selling your home it will mean you value your home more – and what is more important than that?
