Lots of people in home décor programs have done it, so why can’t you, right? It looks so easy and manageable. We bet those thoughts crossed your mind while you watched a home DIY project that yielded amazing results. Here’s our take: Don’t do it yourself – get a professional. Not convinced? Here are 5 reasons why you should get a professional interior designer.
Interior designers have a good eye
You’ve got to hand it to the professionals: they know what they’re doing. You may have done all the research in the world to make sure that the angles were perfect, the paints were eco free and the floor plans were drawn out to scale but a designer is more experienced. Don’t be upset; they’re just a little more experienced than you to work wonders with your layout!
Interior designers are good listeners
An interior designer is paid to listen to all your concerns and queries and provide solutions so you can be reassured that they’ll do nothing else but listen and help. You, as an owner, play an integral of the entire process of decoration so it’s essential that you and the designer be on the same page.
Interior designers are aware of trends
Interior designers might as well be dubbed walking décor magazines so it’s beyond doubt that interior designers are up-to-date on the latest ideas, designs and materials. Their knowledge of the latest trends in their industry far exceeds that of a common person, so trust them.
Interior designers can work wonders with your budget
If you’re decorating on your own, you are sure to have a hard time estimating the costs of all the materials and fixtures. You might not be able to stick to your budget, even. With these professionals however, you won’t have to break into a sweat every time someone brings up cabinets, floors or walls! Interior designers will work with you and your budget to provide you with competent service and quality work. He or she will probably also present you with multiple design solutions you might have overlooked or not thought of.
Interior designers will help you avoid costly mistakes
You really don’t want to have spent a mini fortune on your pretty tiles only to find out about some major setback that your contractor covered up! Interior designers are naturally privy to foreseeable problems so you won’t have to worry about huge obstacles and dilemmas.
Hiring an experienced professional ID firm or renovation contractor ensures fewer headaches for you. Designers are an investment but their fees only represent a fraction of the overall cost of the project. I’m sure you’ve heard stories of homeowners whose DIY projects backfired because of costly mistakes, pieces of furniture that refuse to fit through the door or ghastly paint jobs that never seem to become right; make the right decisions and avoid becoming a contribution to those horror stories.
