Let’s face it, planning a home renovation, remodel, or addition can be stressful. There are millions of things to add to a list, check off the list, and for which to prepare. What colors should you use, what appliances and furniture, cabinets, tiles, or backslash? The list can go on and on. Some people wonder if they should hire an interior designer but worry that it may add too much to the budget. So today, we are going to talk about WHY hiring an interior designer for your renovation/remodel projects is the BEST way to go.
What is an interior designer? Interior design is the art and science of enhancing the interior of a building to achieve a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing environment for the people using the space. An interior designer is someone who plans, researches, coordinates, and manages such enhancement projects. Interior design is a multifaceted profession that includes conceptual development, spaceplanning, site inspections, programming, research, communicating with project stakeholders, construction management, and design execution.
Wow, so … someone who handles MOST OF YOUR PROJECT!!
That alone speaks wonders. From the start, an interior designer will work with you to pinpoint your vision and design style. You may have a vision in your head, but an interior designer will help you bring it to life. You get to enjoy your home renovation project without the headache. With product knowledge, what color schemes work best together, ways to create beauty and functionality in any room, and several other skill sets, interior designers have a trained sense of what needs doing when it comes to the design process. Designers oversee the complicated day-to-day operations of ordering items, keeping track of the budget, and directing vendors. Usually, they will anticipate any obstacles that may come up, offering distinct design solutions as alternatives.
How many of you would like to increase the value of your home? We would say, all. While renovations, remodeling, or adding additional space will increase the value of your home, so will hiring an interior designer. By working with an interior designer, you learn what aspects of the design can impact property value more than others, and they will guide you towards choices that will remain competitive in the market.
By hiring an interior designer, you are more likely to SAVE MONEY. We bet that was not a thought you had. Cortland Design put it best ‘Embarking on a new home renovation project can be an exhilarating adventure. Knowing how to create the right color scheme or select furniture that will fit your space can be challenging and costly if not done well. Designers ensure you get the best value for the home improvement dollars you spend and will help you understand where the money is going.’ Could you imagine the new sofa you purchased for thousands of dollars to go into your beautiful new living room didn’t fit or took up too much of your new space? What if the farm-style kitchen table that took five people to carry in the house and weeks to get didn’t match your new backsplash. These mistakes can cost tons of money. Having help from a professional will eliminate costly errors, not to mention avoiding the heartbreaks of items not working.
