“Incredible interior design doesn’t happen by chance.”
If you are thinking about renovating or moving house, the idea of hiring a designer may have crossed your mind. Here are the good reasons it did...
1. Save Money
It may sound implausible to think paying someone to design for you would save you money but there are some key ways this is true and also a good investment longterm.
“Hiring a designer can help you to avoid costly mistakes that will not only help you save money but can increase the value of your home.” Michelle Cortizo
Buying quality pieces that will last, and getting some price savings passed on when dealing with a designer can save you money. Getting the right choices can help boost buyer appeal when you are selling and set your home apart from the competition.
Take it directly from a client -
"Ann-Louise took all the stress out of making all those expensive and numerous decisions. I'm quite sure I saved much more than what her fees were because there were no mistakes!"
2. Budgeting and Planning
"A designer can keep you on budget and save you time and effort. A designer knows where to go for resources for everything related to your home. This will save you endless amounts of time researching products, brands and prices. A designer will have all this readily on hand, and should he or she not, will spend the time researching so that you don’t have to." Cortizo
If you’re on a tight budget, a designer is going to know how to get the best value out of what you can spend and keep you on track.
3. The Unique Factor
There are things available to designers that are not available to the general public in terms of connections, resources and general merchandise. By culminating these resources designers and taking inspiration from their research of you, your style and space, a designer will make your space look more collected, unique and pulled together. If cookie cutter/off the rack is not what you are after, this is the reason to hire an expert.
4. Save time
Most people wish they could have more of these two biggies: time and money. Just like hiring a designer will benefit you financially, a designer will also save you time. Huge! A designer already has a trained sense of what needs to be done and when it needs to be done, and they’ll be able to anticipate any obstacles that may come up. They know the order in which to organise deliveries, tradespeople, lead times for ordering things - especially big items like furniture which often have 6-8 week waits.
In a nutshell
When you work with a designer:
- You are more likely to meet your budget.
- You are much less likely to make expensive mistakes.
- You have an expert working with you, someone who will make sure the end result is exactly what you were hoping for.
- You will save time, headaches, and money.
