It’s easy to see some of the advantages of having an interior designer at your disposal for a home project. Check out our blog here for more  reasons it’s usually a good idea! But it’s also easy to say “no” to  hiring a designer, whether it seems unnecessary or too expensive. In case you’re on the fence about beginning a project, here are three times you’ll be very glad you hired a quality interior designer to help!

Choosing a design

When this part of a project seems so simple, how can an interior designer pay off? By letting you rest easy with your final decision. It’s really easy to overthink every little detail, and even when you think you’ve got what you want, are you sure it really goes with the rest of the design? Interior designers know what looks good together, and can even provide suggestions that you may have never thought of yourself. This wealth of knowledge can be your best friend and not only help you stress less about the choices you’ve made, but also make your project even more than you imagined it could be.

Remodeling

Even if you know exactly what you want your home to look like, when it’s time to remodel a space, the sheer number of decisions and tasks that go into the project can become overwhelming. When you have an interior designer by your side, you’ll have someone who can manage that task list for you. A remodel project isn’t simply picking paint and tile. If you’re making a big transformation, it could involve moving walls or making building adjustments, as well as decor elements and furniture choices. The bigger the project, the more valuable a designer becomes. They can not only help save your sanity but also help you save money by finding different ways to achieve the outcome you’re looking for!

Negotiating with Vendors

It can be a tricky business talking with different vendors to get the products and services you need for a design project. While you most certainly are a  capable person, it’s hard to know if you’re getting the best possible deal. A good interior designer will give you at least two distinct advantages. First, they will already have relationships with many vendors. This means they may get special pricing or can help lubricate communication or shipping channels if needed. Secondly, even if you choose a vendor they don’t already have a relationship with, they have a broad knowledge of products and services and will be able to help you get the best possible bang for your buck.
