Interior designers love to make spaces beautiful, but did you know that we do more than just that? We also relieve your stress by managing and coordinating all details, orders and contractors that will be working in your home. It is like being the conductor for a symphony; everything is beautifully orchestrated.
1. Interior Designers Can Get You Below-Market Prices
By using designer recommended vendors, I am able to purchase products below-retail prices and pass the savings on to you. Many times by utilizing me to purchase your products, you will also save on shipping costs as well.
For example, one client wanted a custom console table for her living area, and we were able to get it shipped at half the cost and in less than six weeks. She was very happy. :)
2. Interior Designers Keep Your Project Efficient
Through my coordinating of all products and services, projects run smoothly. By allowing me to order all products that will be used in your project, whether it is marble for the bathroom countertop or the custom order banquette for your eating area, and the use of professional contractors that work with me regularly, a project runs seamlessly due to constant communication. Attention to detail is not an add-on item for your project.
3. Interior Designers Help You Avoid Expensive Mistakes
Project management is a huge part of interior design. When products arrive on site, I am present for the installation. This allows me to look for defects, answer questions and relieve stress for the homeowner.
I once had a client who had previously had a terrible experience with custom window treatment installation. When she hired me I was there for the installation and worked with an experienced installer; no problems that day.
4. Interior Designers Help Protect Your Timeline
As an interior designer an important part of my job is to help you avoid costly mistakes. Any design project is an investment, and I want you to get the most value for your money. However, your time is also highly valuable. So, by allowing me to guide you through each decision, you will save both time and money.
5. Interior Designers Solve Problems Creatively
During almost every design project at least one problem will always arise. This is where I come in; my job is to solve that problem so that you don't have to. Many homeowners have a very busy lifestyle and it is difficult for them to find time during the day to contact vendors or contractors about an issue. They would much rather the interior designer do it for them.
Problem: the sofa is back-ordered 12 weeks.
Solution: I am able to find it with a different vendor.
6. Interior Designers Style One-of-a-Kind Unique Spaces
Everyone is different. Every space deserves to represent you and the life you live. I love helping clients tell their story. Listening to you and helping see your vision for your space through to completion is one of the exciting benefits of being an interior designer. Each room I design has an artistic elegance and uniqueness all its own.
7. Interior Designers Create Functional Spaces for Your Lifestyle
Many of my clients are Empty Nesters. I help them utilize their newfound space in a way that represents their current lifestyle. It is all about you and how you live. Your daily life is the most important piece in the designing of a new space.
8. Interior Designers Let You Maintain a Normal Life During a Project
By allowing me to manage your design project from start to finish you are able to go about your normal daily routine. This means that you will not have to be home to meet the painter or during the installation of cabinets. It allows you the freedom of living your life and maintaining a daily routine.
9. Interior Designers Give You Peace of Mind from Start to Finish
By hiring an interior designer you will have the benefit of peace of mind. It insures there is someone who is looking out for your best interests and always has your back. An interior designer provides a seamless transition from your old space into your new one.
Designing a new room for any client is always exciting. It has challenges and involves problem solving skills that allow me to use my strengths every day. But most of all, it allows me to meet the most wonderful people and bring a small amount of joy into their lives by creating a new space just for them. It is the best job ever!
