Whether you are getting a home ready to put on the market or just trying to make a big splash in the new year with a fresh new look, redecorating and remodeling a home can be an exciting yet stressful time.
Juggling the duties of planning and executing designs, picking and choosing décor elements like paint, flooring and furniture as well as staying within budget is a tough job for anyone.
It may be time to call in back up. Bringing in an interior designer to help with your redecorating or remodeling can bring your plans to life. And doing so may actually save you money.
Whether you have a vivid master plan or have no idea where to start, the right interior designer could be your guardian angel.
Provides structure and planning
A skilled interior designer doesn’t just offer advice on colors and styles of furniture, fabric, or tile. They can help develop your vision in a manner that brings order to all aspects of redesign and renovation. They can help keep your project(s) on track and within budget.
Additionally, your designer can anticipate problems before they occur and help avoid decisions that lead to unnecessary costs. This is where the most competent designers shine for their clients. They’ve acquired the experience of working with good and bad trades. Therefore, they know what to ask, what to look for, and when to change course if needed.
A trained set of eyes
You may have your own ideas and design concepts. However, your scope may be limited because you haven’t seen all possible concepts for your space.
You can use an interior designer to bounce ideas off of or help improve your current design ideas. Beyond that, an interior designer isn’t just an extra set of eyes; they bring their own project management background, creative perspective and, a wealth of experiences that allows them to envision opportunities previously unseen.
It saves money (no, really)
The concept of bringing in a professional and saving money at the same time is rightfully head-scratching. But, hear us out! Tackling designing and remodeling on your own opens you up for costly design, décor and decorating mistakes. These mistakes can cost time and money to replace or repair and, for you sellers out there, can affect your cost basis and selling price.
With an interior designer providing direction, insight and overseeing the process, they can help ensure that mistakes are minimized and trades are delivering their services on time and in a professional manner. Interior designers may also have shortcuts, money-saving tips and recommendations from years of expertise.
Boosts appeal to buyers and neighbors
Owning a home with interior schemes that have been influenced by a professional designer will distinguish your property – especially important for sellers. The feedback from prospective buyers during Open House season – and reduced days on market – will affirm your decision to partner with an interior designer.
