Interior designers are degreed and licensed professionals who make your home more functional and beautiful. If your home could use more space, better traffic flow, or an additional room, an interior designer is your answer.
They save you money. Interior designers can buy appliances, furnishings, and more from “to the trade” vendors. While they charge for their time and/or add a mark up to each item you agree to, you’ll pay about the same for unique wow-factor results as you would for big-box, off-the-shelf items.
They save you time. The interior designer learns your lifestyle, personal preferences and space concerns. They know the latest products and design solutions, and do the research so you don’t have to.
They help you prevent mistakes. An interior design is like a symphony – every detail should compliment everything else in utility and beauty. Designers give you what you want, but they also expand your tastes.
They have resources. Many design solutions must be customized, so designers have their own go-to teams of contractors, upholsterers, artisans and craftspeople.
Most designers offer a free consultation to help you decide if you’ll work well together. Contact the American Society of Interior Designers for more information.
