You may be asking yourself, “Why should I hire an Interior Designer?” Understanding the time, preparation, and behind-the-scenes details that go into planning the design of a new space or simply the fact that you’ve grown tired of your current one plays a vital part in the decision-making process. It may be more of what you don’t know that ensures a smooth design experience.
With the ability to apply your style to the proportions of your desired space, Interior Designers offer a huge range of knowledge when it comes to planning, regulations, and budgeting.
Interior designing is not just a job, but an art.
Must-haves in interior design include creativity, vision, passion, and excellent taste. Beyond that, an interior designer must have good communication and management skills and knowledge of the latest trends, furniture, and material, too. If you are considering renovating your home, then the decision about interior decor is a step you cannot skip.
Learn why hiring a design professional will save you money, time, and maybe most importantly, headaches and stress in the long run:
1. Wide range of resources and contacts.
An Interior Designer can offer you access to their strong vendor relationships where you can benefit from high-quality products and experience, otherwise unavailable. In addition to sourcing and procuring materials and appliances, we’re able to streamline the logistics process, which is a critical step to ensure your project remains on schedule and avoids costly delays. At Designs by Duchess, our in-house Interior Designers have an extensive network of trade specialists and vendors, where we collaborate and iron out all the material aspects necessary for your new home transformation.
2. Unique and creative décor.
Interior Designers have access to trade-only resources, like furniture suppliers and tradespeople which means your project will be finished sooner and to a higher level than you can achieve on your own. We look beyond our local stores in Houston or Sugar Land.
3. Budget optimization.
When you’re trying to stay within your budget, accurately assessing quantity, quality, and pricing is a necessary aspect of any interior design project. An Interior Designer is well-versed in each of these areas. We’re able to advise you on quality control, areas where you can splurge, and where to cut back helping you save money and maximize your budget. For example, investing in a high-quality sofa with durable fabric will save you from having to replace your sofa every three years. Instead, you could spend less on your coffee and end tables, which likely won’t suffer as much use.
4. Expert in color and materials.
By hiring an interior designer, the confusion of which paint color to choose, what kind of sofa to buy, or what size rug all disappears. We know what is trendy and what works best for your home. This is not something you should have to be concerned with. It’s like having to take your car to the mechanic. Let the professionals do what they do if it’s not your area of expertise.
5. Problem solvers.
Beyond an artistic eye and creative vision, an Interior Designer is a trained professional who can provide you with confidence in the practicality of your design concept, while communicating with contractors to work around any complicated mechanics of your renovation. Understanding the same renovation terminology as contractors is necessary to ensure an organized approach to any potential changes throughout your project. This benefit is particularly helpful when trying to figure out solutions that you may not have known were possible. A professional Interior Designer will understand how to navigate any changes in your project so that if unforeseen issues do arise, they can work with the correct parties involved to remain on schedule and ensure your design scheme is executed as planned.
6. Add value to your home.
During a renovation or remodel, an interior designer will guide you on the best areas to invest your money that will give you more bang for your buck. When it comes to cabinetry, this is a good place to indulge wherever you can. Consider your new cabinetry as a long-term investment. If you invest in quality cabinetry and maintain the hardware properly, it’ll likely last you at least 20 years.
7. Saves you money, time, and stress.
No wasting time on research! Without an interior designer, you’re left to research products, brands, and prices on your own. If you’re on a tight timeline, an experienced interior designer will be able to help you get the best deal for your money quickly. Our expertise at Designs by Duchess ensures every piece will make sense in the space, and your home will have a seemingly uncomplicated style. This takes the pressure off you.
8. Your Style Is Refined.
When deciding to hire an interior designer, you can rest assured that your home will not end up looking like a carbon copy of what you saw in Rooms to Go. We want to promise you that this will not happen! Every interior designer has their own flair, but your vision is our main concern. A great designer knows how to take your interests and ideas and turn them into something fabulous. Your style will be evident throughout your home consistently and pleasantly.
Whatever dream you have for your home, Designs by Duchess can make it a reality! If you live in the Houston, Sugar Land, or Pearland area, contact us today for professional advice, and invaluable insight. With our help, your home will be transformed into the perfect space for you.
