Do You Need to Hire an Interior Designer?

  • October 20, 2015

Do you need to hire an interior designer? An age-old question often asked by those attempting to decorate their home with the latest trends and the chicest fashions. Is it necessary, though? Let’s explore the pros and cons.
 
Pros
 
Professional – Interior Designers have a knack for developing a space into a professional setting. Whether it’s the kitchen, the living room, or a bedroom, a designer has the ability to turn the space into a chic and elegant area with just the touches it needs.
 
Updated – Always up to date with the latest trends and fashions, an interior designer is sure to guide you to what’s hot and steer you away from what’s not. If you love the looks of decorated homes in magazines but can’t seem to find a way to get it done yourself, it may be worth looking into hiring an interior designer.
 
High Class Look – Those who seek the services of an interior designer are often looking to establish a high-class look to their home. From furniture to window coverings, a professional can help present you with options that will tie the room and design together while maintaining the elegance and sophistication you seek.
 
Cons
 
Expensive – While the prices for services vary depending on what you are looking for, the style you decide upon, and the qualifications of the professional, hiring an experienced interior designer can be extremely expensive. If spending a huge chunk of money on the advice for how to decorate your home is not something you are willing to dive into, consider taking on the project yourself. This could turn out to be a fun and exciting side project for you!
 
Fashion Fades – When paying for the latest trends, the fact that fashion and trends fade (and quickly!) is often overlooked. Rather than spending a fortune on furniture or pieces that could look outdated in a matter of months, take a look around for neutral and timeless ways to decorate your home. Throw in a couple items that make the look more modern or compliment a style you are going for but avoid keeping your vision too narrow so as to date your decorating prematurely.
 
Personality – Do you ever notice how homes in magazines often look the same? Sure the layout is different and pieces are unique. But overall, pictures highlighting home interiors boast many of the same features. Avoid looking like everyone else and add your own touch and personality to your home décor. Again, this could turn into a fun side project that you develop in your spare time. Make your home your own. After all, you’re the one who should feel most comfortable there!
