In the established design industry, the career is serious business. It takes years to master the art of interior design. It is complex, calculated and practical. A design professional is often part creator, part project manager and sometimes even part therapist, helping homeowners to determine their dream design and bring it to life while helping them to breathe through the complexities from start to finish. Design professionals have learned over the years to wear many hats to benefit their clients.
Here are some of the top reasons for entrusting your project, whether it’s big or small, to a design professional.
Design professionals can help you determine which of your goals are realistic for your project and warn you of potential issues before any work or buying begins. This ensures that your plans are achievable within the budget you’ve set.
Each designer may have a unique way of doing things, but ultimately an experienced professional will have a tried-and-true method that will help guide the project and make sure nothing gets missed.
That said, while professional design can prevent expensive errors, it is still a luxury. But it’s one that can be considered an investment in the enjoyment of your home.
An experienced professional will know how to properly communicate your design vision to the relevant tradespeople and suppliers, with detailed drawings, documentation, and follow-ups to make sure your design dreams don’t get lost in translation.
Whether you’re moving walls or ordering furniture, you might find it tough to picture in your mind exactly how things will fit and look.
Proper drawings will ensure that the pieces come together in the right way, and in good proportions, so you don’t have to return items and start again.
Designers may look at hundreds of stone samples, fabrics or plumbing fixtures before showing the best three or four choices to their clients.
With every project, not everything goes according to plan. Things come up that require quick reactions. Designers are there on hand to make the crucial decisions on the spot so you can focus on life’s more important things.
Clients often tell me, “I never would have pictured that piece or color in my home, but now that I see it, it’s perfect.”
While some designers specialize in full-service offerings, others will tackle smaller one-off jobs like helping you pick paint colors, find the right furniture, select materials or simply plan a space.
Of course, with different offerings comes different fee structures, which is something you’ll have to discuss with your design professional.
Clients may find it hard to take risks, and that makes sense. Nobody wants to gamble with hard-earned money and lose. However, it’s important to take at least some design risks to find the dazzling, show-stopping moment that makes a project feel as though it was worth undertaking in the first place.
With all this in mind, results will be more spectacular than you ever could have imagined.
