Posted by admin - December 19, 2014 - Designer Insights, Interior Design

Whether it’s a full renovation, changing the furniture or simply redecorating the walls, embarking on any interior design project is challenging, nerve-wracking and exciting.  If you are planning on modifying an element of your home you may be deliberating whether to save money by tackling the project yourself or to call in the professionals.

We have to admit that the latter option, having an experienced and talented interior designer work on a home décor project comes with multiple advantages.

Take a look at five reasons why hiring an interior designer would make sense.

Optimise the space and functionality of the room

An interior designer will do much more than simply make a room look pretty. They have experience in knowing how to optimise the space in a room so it appears bigger and becomes more functional.

1- A fresh set of eyes

You might have spent so many days and sleepless nights wondering if you should opt for the funky black and white wallpaper or go for a more neutral décor in the kids’ room that you are sick of the sight of wallpaper samples and palette schemes.

Hiring an interior designer will mean a fresh pair of eyes is cast over the project, which could bring a new dimension to the project.

2- A long-term investment

Interior designers are experts when it comes to crafting interiors that are going to appeal to other buyers or tenants, should you decide to sell or let out your property. With this in mind, any investment you spend now on hiring an interior designer is likely to be money well spent as a stunning living room or stylish and convenient kitchen is likely to increase the value of your home.

3- Save you time and money

Being in the interior ‘know’, a designer will know where to go to get cheaper yet good quality materials and other resources. Not only will not having to ‘shop around’ save you time and a headache, but it might also save you a significant amount of money.

4- A home with the wow factor

A proficient interior designer will have experience giving homes of all sizes, styles and designs the ‘wow’ factor.

Whether you want a more eye-catching and stunning entrance hall or want a dining room that does the talking when you invite guests over for a dinner party, a designer will be able to inject the wow factor into any and every living space.

5- A totally bespoke and unique project

You may worry that if you do hire an interior designer, your design project will lose its individuality and uniqueness. This could not be further from the truth as experienced designers are well-versed in adapting a project to their client’s desires and requirements. You might not think it but a good interior designer can help make your interior more bespoke and individual than if you didn’t hire professional help.

And there you have it, five reasons why hiring a professional, experienced and dedicated interior designer would be a worthwhile investment.
