Interior DesignerDo you have a home, business, or office that is in need of a remodel – or perhaps you are starting from scratch and need an interior design plan? Have you considered using a professional Interior Designer? If not, what’s holding you back?

Would you be surprised to learn that when you hire a certified Interior Designer, you are actually making an investment that will pay you back ten-fold?  Those that have hired a designer – know exactly that.

  1. An Investment in Time: Life is busy. Whether you work outside the home or not, life is going on all around you and your time is worth money. How much time would it take you to complete your project? Three days? Thirteen days? Three months? With an interior designer, they will complete the project before you would even get started.
  2. Invest in Energy: Do you know what makes your home Energy Efficient? An Interior Designer does. Think of the money you will save in utilities alone when you seek the help of a professional designer.
  3. Knowledge Is Power: What happens when you run into a problem? You will probably reach for the yellow pages looking for subcontractors. More often than not, an interior designer will take on all those responsibilities for you. They know who to call, and they know what to do when they run into an electrical problem, a crack in the wall, or any other “uh-oh’s” that are discovered when a designing project is tackled.
  4. Creative & Focused: An experienced interior designer can save time, money, and provide the form, function, and aesthetic beauty you desire. Armed, educated, and certified to help with colors, lighting, space planning, and project management (just to name a few), interior designers work to create the optimal design for their clients. They are smart and detail oriented. Their invaluable knowledge of products and technical specifications will ultimately help clients when it’s time to make decisions about purchasing and construction.
  5. Do It Right From the Start: How many cans of paint do you have in your garage? How many rolls of wallpaper have you purchased trying to get it just right? Flooring? Furniture? Accessories? How much money are you willing to waste trying to achieve your desired interior design? When you call an interior designer, they will take out all the guesswork and get it right from start to finish without costly mistakes. Have it done right the first time.
  6. Investment in your Home: Do you think your home will sell quicker if you decorated it yourself, or if you hired an interior designer to do the job? Home Staging or making updates to floor plans to create more livable space is a huge win-win for everyone. Everyday a house sits on the market is another day of incurring costs.
  7. Investment in your Family: Building, designing, decorating all take a toll on your family. It’s not a myth that many divorces arise during these stages of transition. Having an interior designer on board will save you and your family stress and grief. That is priceless.
