How Hiring An Interior Designer Can Save You Money

I know what you are thinking: how can I save money in hiring

an interior designer when I can do it by myself?

There is a lot of preconceived ideas about hiring an interior designer. The first one is that most people think that hiring an interior designer will cost a lot of money and it is only for wealthy people. Another misconception is about projects: interior designers only work on big projects, large remodels with huge budget! And most important there is something nobody think about: interior designers can save you money! How? You save time, you get access to discounts, you avoid costly mistakes, they also help you to reuse what you have and finally you increase the value of your home! So, let’s see in details how you can save money in hiring an interior designer whatever the size of your project (from a two hour In Home Consultation to a full remodel).

PS: I hope you will not mind me using the "she" throughout the article. Of course, your interior designer could be a "he"! No offence to the male interior designers! They are so talented too!

1# Working with an interior designer saves you time and time is money! So, you can go to work, your project is on good hands! Your interior designer will manage your budget, follow the project and make sure that everything will be deliver on time, and much more! You don't have to shop (and spend hours and hours) all around the places to find the perfect tile for the bathroom and become quickly overwhelmed by the huge choice of tiles! But she also save you from headache and eventually from dispute in your couple regarding the design, the project, the choices! Trust me, you don’t want to argue during days and you don't want your project to become a nightmare! Your interior designer brings an external eye, she is the third party consultant who helps you making the right decision and it makes your life easier!

2# Working with an interior designer give you access to “trade only” resources for furniture, fabrics, custom cabinets etc. She will give you the best price for those exclusive offers. And, because your interior designer knows her manufacturers and the quality of the product, she can order everything for you, get you valuable discounts and again make your life easier. Your interior designer also gives you access to her best contractors, painters, upholstery companies, suppliers etc…Professionals you can trust for the quality of their service!

3# An important one, your interior designer will save you from making disastrous and costly mistakes. How? she helps you make the right decision! Let say you want to design by yourself your bathroom, why not? And you fall in love with this beautiful tile for the bathtub, you ask your contractor to install it and then you realise that it doesn’t match with the rest of the bathroom! You have two choices: live with it or redo it and pay again for another tile, labor…Don't laugh, this happens more than you think, trust me! But with your interior designer, this would not happen. She is able to see the big picture of the room, but also all the details and she makes sure that everything will match together! She has an eye for it!

4# Another important point is to be able to reuse or recycle what you already have! For example, you move in a new home, not the same size (larger, smaller whatever) and you cannot afford to change all your existing furniture but how to reuse it and make it feel like new? Your interior designer will help you rearrange your interior with what you already have and add some new pieces (table, pillows, curtains, a new rug, table lamp etc.). The options are infinite and she knows how to recycle, transform a piece! That is the magic of interior design: create a new space with a mix of old and new! By the way that will help you save a lot of money again!

5# And finally, your interior designer helps you add value to your home! How? Simple, your house will be perfectly designed, decorated, eye candy! Everyone loves a beautiful home, well organised, and aesthetically pleasant. So, the value of your home will increase and therefore you will be able to sale it faster (if you still want to sale your home after your interior designer remodels it!).

Thus, as you have seen, working with an interior designer makes you save money. She makes your life easier in the design process, she saves you time, she takes away the stress from you, she rearranges what you have, shops for you, and takes care of your project. But the most important is she will design the perfect place for you with your memories, your lifestyle. She creates your nest, your home sweet home and this is the most valuable aspect of her job!

Book now your In Home Consultation and I will help you save money and create the perfect place for you!
