There are obvious benefits to hiring a professional interior decorator – a beautifully furnished space, for one – but there are numerous other reasons to work with an Orlando interior designer that you may not have considered. These include:
Avoiding Costly Mistakes
When you try to design a space yourself, especially if you’re starting from the ground up with a new build or large-scale renovation project, there are hundreds of decisions to make, dozens of materials to select, and a lot of critical measurements to take. That’s a big load to manage, particularly for those who haven’t done it before. When you work with a professional designer, you benefit from a whole team of experts who take care of all the not-so-glamorous behind-the-scenes tasks you don’t want to be involved with and who help you in making the important decisions that will ultimately shape your final design. We ensure that all of your selections work together and are appropriate for your space and the chosen application. All of this ensures that you don’t waste money having to redo work or repurchase expensive materials.
Maximizing Every Dollar
As noted above, we are interior design pros at maximizing your budget and making sure that every penny is spent wisely. We’ll make recommendations for spending – and saving – where it counts, while ensuring you end up with finishes and furnishings that are durable, high quality, and aesthetically pleasing.
Not Wasting Time
Depending on the project and your preferences, we can either make every selection on your behalf with minimal involvement or we can serve as a guide to aid you in making decisions that we know will give you the home of your dreams. Regardless of how much or how little you wish to be involved, our expertise saves you time, and time is money when working with builders, contractors, and fabricators. We create comprehensive project timelines and are always working many steps ahead to keep your project moving. You also benefit from our long-standing industry relationships which often mean shorter turnaround times and faster completion of your interior design project.
One of the greatest benefits in working with a designer is gaining access to trade-only goods. This can include furniture and upholstery manufacturers, fabrics, artwork, and more that are available at prices a regular retail consumer can’t get. These products are much higher quality than what’s available at traditional furniture stores or fabric shops. Having access to these resources also ensures your space is unique and truly looks and feels custom. Is there anything better than having a home filled with beautiful one-of-a-kind items?
If you’re not actively involved in the design world, it can be hard to keep track of what’s “in.” Often times, by the time a trend has reached traditional retail outlets, it has become ubiquitous and even on the verge of being out of style. While we’re always champions for creating a space you love regardless of trends, no one wants to invest money into furniture and accessories only for them to be considered dated the following year. Rely on our experience and expertise to help you invest in the perfect blend of timeless pieces and on-trend items that will result in a space you can enjoy for many years.
Seeing the Big Picture
Many people have a hard time visualizing something they can’t see. It takes a keen eye to be able to look at disparate items and know how they’ll all work together in a space. We’ve been doing this for 30 years and have the ability to look at your home, your existing furnishings, and mentally scroll through the thousands of products in our vendor catalogs and know how to blend everything into a cohesive design plan.
Making the Process Enjoyable
Investing in your home and designing new spaces should be fun. But for those who try to go it alone, it can be stressful, overwhelming, and costly. In the very worst cases, it can be a major regret that requires you to spend even more money to hire someone to fix your mistakes. When you work with a professional, the process is actually pleasant. Rather than being bogged down with decisions, we have fun visiting showrooms and showing you curated selections. You get to enjoy the best parts of design while leaving the headaches to us. We also push you a little outside of your comfort zone which always leads to a better end result. It’s often the unexpected choices or the ones you may have been hesitant about that end up being a favorite when the space is complete.
