About Interior Design

Woman beginning the interior design process

Interior design is a field that is constantly changing with fashion trends and evolving styles. Because of the constant changes and shifting ideas, interior design can be confusing to an outsider. Essentially, interior design revolves around using knowledge and experience to make creative decor and style decisions based on the goals of the client. The ability to take into account building codes, inspection regulations, and the limitations of space while reading and designing blueprints is key to the design process. Another important aspect of design is the ability to network with other aspects of the design field, such as painters, electricians, fabric wholesalers, and more. Taking these different parts of the design process and combining them into the dream room that the client imagines is what makes interior design difficult for the layman.

Why Hire an Interior Designer?

Many have the idea that interior designers are only for the wealthy, that could not be further from the truth. In reality, an interior designer can save you both time and money. Hiring a professional designer can help you to avoid costly mistakes, saving you money while also increasing the value of your home. This can become a major factor when selling your home, as it can help boost the appeal of your home and give you a leg up on the competition.

In addition, many DIY interior design projects tend to drag on until the homeowner eventually gives up and settles on a room or home that they are not truly happy with. This tends to happen because amateur designers and DIYers are not familiar with the complexity of home design and fail to make a thorough plan and budget. One of the most overlooked aspects of the design process is the planning stages when the interior designer works with the clients to create the design plan and calculate the budget. The interior designer is also going to be able to act as a liaison between other aspects of the design process. A DIY designer is not going to be familiar with local professional prices and reputations when different aspects such as construction or electrical work become important to the design process. An interior designer is going to be familiar with these professionals and will be able to work in their client’s best interest.
