Hiring an interior designer or an architect to decorate your home is essential. Yes, anyone with good taste can design a home. I cannot stress "good taste" enough. Everyone seem to think that they have good taste, but not really. It’s something to think about if you haven’t already done so. Hiring an interior decorator is a smart decision if you’ve invested a good bit of money into your home and want to be able to showcase it to look its best and work at the highest efficiency.
Architects and interior designers understand how all systems of your home works including day lighting, cooling-heating etc. It might be difficult to pay for the service, but believe me, it pays off in longer run. As Benjamin Franklin said, "The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten." One of our core beliefs at Le Blue Goose is that everyone deserves to live in an incredible space that brings you comfort and joy. Your space should not only look amazing, but it should be a reflection of your personality and style, and it should function in a way that works with how you live your life. It might sound impossible, and that’s because incredible interior design does not happen by chance. Great spaces are carefully explored, planned, and curated by professionals.
Reason 1: You will save money!
Ever bought a piece of furniture that looked so good in the store, but was too big once you got it home? Ever painted three or four times trying to find the right color palette? It may seem like like an oxymoron because you’re going to have to pay the additional designer’s fee, but the truth is that hiring a designer can help you avoid costly mistakes and help you make design decisions that will increase the value of your home. And if you’re on a tight budget, a designer is going to know how to get the best value out of what you can spend. An experienced designer is used to working on a line item budget and will help you understand where every penny is going.
Reason 2: Actual Budgeting
A designer can keep you on budget and save you time and effort. A designer knows where to go for resources for everything related to your home. This will save you endless amounts of time researching products, brands and prices. A designer will have all this readily on hand, and should he or she not, will spend the time researching so that you don’t have to.
Reason 3: Professional Assessment
When you hire a trained designer, you get an immediate plan of action for your space. Professional interior designers went to school and had several apprenticeships to do what they do. A trained pair of eyes will see things you’re guaranteed to miss. Interior design is a delicate balance of art and science, and good interior designers have studied both, so they know how to put them together.
Reason 4: Liaison
A designer will be able to build “a stronger bridge between you and your architect or contractor early on and can head off design misses in your overall plan. This is crucial in managing time and money explains Cortizo. Also designers are trained to think about things we may overlook. “It’s so important that the lighting and furnishing needs are addressed before construction. If your living room sofa is floating in a the middle of the room you want to make sure you have the proper placement for floor outlets.”
Reason 5: Wow Factor.
Designers can help to give you the “wow” factor you’ve been looking for. They are trained to think differently, spatially and to see an overall picture that clients often cannot. Cortizo adds that “Thinking outside of the box is what designers do all day long.”
Reason 6: A trained eye.
“A designer is a professional with a trained eye that can automatically tell you if there is something wrong or right with a space. Having that immediate consult is a major advantage when making aesthetic decisions. It is the result of years of experience.” says Cortizo. Often times homeowners try to do it all themselves and get frustrated.
