1. Guidance- Buying a new home and deciding on furnishings can be an overwhelming process. There are so many decisions to make especially in the “New Build” process. Designers are trained on form and function. They can determine if a sofa is too small or too large for a space. They can guide you through paint colors while considering how much natural lighting you have in a space.
2. Budgeting- Did you know designers could save you money? Designers have trade secrets and resources that could allow you big savings. Designers also have industry relationships with contractors, builders, and makers. They can help you avoid making the mistake of buying something that really doesn’t work in your space. Designers also work as project managers so they can manage your overall budget. They are conscious of areas where you may be able to save money.
3. Vision- Designers conceptualize your design. A designer may ask for inspiration photos or for things that inspire you to gain clarity on who you are. They are always seeking to learn who their clients are, so the space reflects the client.
4.Relationships-Designers and clients spent a lot of time together, so it’s and its no surprise that long-term relationships are built. In doing so, you’re sure to gain a viable partnership as your life changes and your family grows. It’s very common for clients to move from one house to the next one, while utilizing the same designer.
5. Project Management- Hiring contractors can be scary. Designers can help vet contractors and ensure installations are conforming to the design.
