I’ve never been a fan of interior designers if I’m honest. I always saw them as a luxury when it comes to their services – a service that people want to tell their friends about when having work done in their homes.
Well I was wrong…. I am currently working with one on a house refurbishment and it has really opened my eyes to their expertise in getting a project finished on time, on budget and most importantly giving the client exactly what they want without having to go out of their way searching for it.
An Interior designer charges a fee, something that I would never have considered paying until recently. They are not just there to help you choose a colour, an item of furniture, curtains or wallpaper. They shop around for the best value and quality for your money, something that the majority of us haven’t time to do. How many times have you painted a room in your house only to decide half way across a wall that you don’t like the colour or that it doesn’t match something in that room? I bet it has happened quiet a few times in the past. Have you ever bought the wrong size curtains for a window? Are you happy with the tiles in your bathroom, timber floors in your sitting room? We all have things we would change and regret doing in our home. Well an interior designer works with this day in day out. He or she has seen previous mistakes and made them. Have you ever bought something for your house only to see it cheaper in another store after you buy it? I know I have and a good designer will have sourced the cheapest price for you.
So here are a few points as to why you should use a good interior designer.
Individual design for your home
All products sourced for you
The keenest quotes sought on your behalf
The most important thing to most clients is price and between the time saved and the fact that your designer will get the keenest prices on your behalf they basically pay their own fees.
