Why use an Interior Designer?
Updated: Nov 3, 2020
I am often asked why should someone choose to use an interior designer, rather than do the design themselves. With the boom of home renovation reality TV, many people believe that tackling the design of their project is something they can do to save themselves money, however, this can turn into a costly mistake. Here are some key reasons why it does pay to consult a qualified interior designer.
Yes, I know it sounds strange, but paying an interior designer will save you costs by avoiding costly mistakes such as purchasing the wrong size furniture, incorrect colour schemes that will require a full repaint and clashing tiles. Getting a design that works will also increase the value of your home, so it’s a win-win situation.
Budget and Planning
Interior designers will keep you on budget by sourcing suitable products that meet your needs and budgets as well as ensuring the scale of works is kept within scope, to not blow your budget. An Interior designer can also easily find cost saving options for you.
Interior designers have access to items and services that are not available to the general public, such as trade discounts, special offers, and limited stock items. Ensuring they are able to access exclusive products at the best prices.
Interior designers know many people in the industry through a strong network so they can recommend suitable tradespeople and suppliers to ensure that your project is successful. They can also hunt down specific items you desire through their network of suppliers.
Interior designers have been schooled in the industry, often across a number of different fields and are able to tell you immediately if something is not right, rather than wasting hours trying to pinpoint the problem. Interior design is a delicate balance of the design elements and having a trained eye on the job will ensure that you get the ultimate results.
