Why Choose Design Services?

Why Choose Design Services?

There’s a common misconception that using a designer when doing or re-doing your home is more costly than handling everything on your own. Let’s see why that is NOT true, and why design services are a key to your project’s success–and your sanity. 

In the know

Designers have extensive, specialized knowledge in their field that DIYers often lack. They

-have insight into new trends and can help design a space that will look fabulous for many years.

-are skilled at identifying layout problems and improving the function of a space.

-are trained to help homeowners think outside the box, introducing them to beautiful new, creative ideas for their interiors. 

-specialize in helping clients understand their personal design aesthetic and make decisions based on a plan.

-have access to trade-only resources and reliable contractors.

Tapping into a designer’s wealth of knowledge and contacts will save not only time, but money as well.

Save time

Homeowners often underestimate the time needed to chase down information and products. And to find and engage builders, architects, and tradesmen. 

It takes many, many hours to 

-create a working plan for a project, large or small.

-research styles, materials and products, as well as their availability.

-take measurements, match them to needed products, and order. 

-commit to be on-site to check progress and work with installers.

For many would-be renovators, the time for these tasks is often Just Not There.

Save money

Mistakes are expensive, and a designer is the professional who helps keep mistakes to a minimum, saving the homeowner money. Not to mention the time to undo and redo. 

Not only that, but a designer is able to give wise spending advice, such as which items to save on–so that there are funds for “splurge” must-haves.

An added bonus: designers have access to trade-only discounts and wholesale pricing that can be passed on to the client.

“Let me handle that.”

And lastly, but certainly not least, a trusted designer manages the project for the homeowner–coordinating ordering and receiving, synchronizing installation schedules, and generally absorbing the inevitable headaches that come with any renovation.
