Why do I need an interior decorator/designer?
This is a question many people ask when it comes time to build their dream home, remodel an existing or simply add-on. The answer is more straight-forward than one might think.
First of all, experience and knowledge, coupled with creativity, gives an interior decorator/designer the ability to help the client in the seemingly endless, often overwhelming process of decision making. To tell the truth, the selection process can be an enjoyable experience that thoughtfully meets your desires and needs as well as creatively solves design and decorating dilemmas as they surface.
In addition, if price is an issue, oftentimes a good decorator/designer can help you save money while coming up with creative solutions. On the other hand, if you have an endless budget (I’ve never really met anyone who does ;o), it can be incredibly difficult to make selections with so many products available.
Whether you want a few suggestions or help with every decision that needs to be made; hiring an interior decorator/designer can obviously be worth the cost in the long run. The comfort of being able to bounce your ideas off a knowledgeable person that helps you come up with a creative solution is invaluable.
One more thing that will help to choose the right decorator/designer for the job is to make sure and find a good listener. As we all know, this is a skill that comes more naturally to some than others. Look for the opportunity to read more about this important skill in the next article…
