Benefits of Hiring an Interior Designer!
All of the heart and soul is poured into the ‘home project.’ Hiring an interior designer-stylist helps save energy and resources, and as an extension of that, it helps with wise expenditure, so we can focus on our personal satisfaction at every step of the creative process.
Here are some of the best advantages of working with one:
Remember that popular phrase, ‘Don’t be penny wise and pound foolish?’ It means that in an effort to save our pennies, we may – without realising – cut corners on quality. Then, we might end up spending more money, just to fix a problem we wouldn’t be dealing with, if we’d invested in a one-time (or one-shot, long-term spend) at the outset. Facing the dilemmas that come with this, can end up being a far more expensive endeavour, than the consultancy fee of a professional.
FRESH PERSPECTIVES ON COMBINING TIMELESS TRENDS
Sometimes, we’re too ‘into it,’ for too long. It doesn’t strike us that we’re circling around the same ideas without any innovative breakthroughs. A professional brings a ‘fresh pair of eyes’ – in every sense of the phrase. All they need is a clear-cut brief. Then, they work to pick the best combination of current trends and timeless styles that suits the brief – but with a clean, neutral approach.
DIFFERENT PEOPLE LIKING DIFFERENT THINGS? NO PROBLEM!
Everyone should get all the space they need for expressing their style. How can this be achieved, in the actual physical space and the boundaries that we may have to work with?
An interior designer-stylist will figure out the happy-harmony formula where each distinct style carries itself beautifully, no one feels like they’re the one getting the raw deal, and everything makes sense, when it comes together at the end.
ACCESS TO UNIQUE, RECLUSIVE STUFF
We visit family or friends at their place. We see something truly special, and our first reaction is, “where did you get that??” If they don’t have the knack for it themselves, chances are high that a professional helped them find it. We can learn alot from what a professional shares about their network of favourite brands, vendors, and in many cases, the very artist, sculptor, craftsperson of a piece, directly.
A PROFESSIONAL KNOWS WHEN TO STOP
At the end of the day, for a genuine interior designer-stylist who really loves their craft, it’s not just about a cool remuneration. They WILL have our best short and long-term interests in mind. They WILL want the personal satisfaction of knowing they handed over a space that looks like the clients’ dream come true. At ground level – pun intended, maybe! – one of the most crucial steps to achieve this, is to draw a firm, clear line over what makes the shortlist, and what doesn’t.
FUNCTIONALITY ISN’T FORGOTTEN
At every step, the efforts of a professional will be like a gentle reminder that it’s not enough for a space to look beautiful – it also has to feel that way. This is achieved when functionality and product design maintain a graceful priority over all else.
CREATIVE COURAGE TO TRY SOMETHING NEW
It’s not really the best habit to be putting words in someone’s mouth, but don’t we all appreciate it when an overwhelming project is at hand! It’s like a weight lifted off our heads. An experienced interior designer-stylist is able to express what makes their clients ‘tick.’ They’re able to respectfully hand-hold their clients through the process of stepping out of a well-established comfort zone; and are able to help them see the positive delights waiting for them just outside of that zone.
A WHOLESOME RELATIONSHIP BASED ON TRUST & SHARING
Our home reflects our life journeys and shifting horizons; our personal growth and development. Once we have a mutually positive experience with an interior designer-stylist over one home project, well, the search for a trustworthy support system pretty much stops. We begin to look forward to what else they can bring to the table in support of our evolving visions for the future.
