Advantages of Hiring an Interior Designer - 7 Reasons Why

Most people believe that interior designers spend all day day picking out pretty things, but in reality, we do SO much more for you than that!

Today I’m going to take you through the top obvious and not-so-obvious advantages of having an interior designer on your team.

1. Skills & Expertise

When you hire an interior designer, you’re not just getting someone who knows how to make a space look pretty. You’re getting a curated design center personalized to you who is backed by deep knowledge of our industry - the best materials for longevity, the most efficient path to your dream home, when to save vs. when to splurge, etc.

They also attend conferences, trade shows, and continuous education seminars and classes to keep armed with the most up-to-date skills and knowledge, along with the latest in furniture, decor trends and products.

2. Effective Project Management

Renovations tend to come with unforeseen hiccups, but having an experienced interior designer managing your project is a time and money saving asset. Their experience and creative problem solving skills helps avoid costly mistakes and keep the timeline on schedule.

At 940 Interiors we also act as our clients liaison- overseeing the project, manage tradesmen, order/receive, handle returns or anything that may come damage and track products. We also send out weekly project status emails. Our goal is to take the stress off you, so you can do what you do best.

3. Finding Reliable Professionals

With any great design, you’ll need a design plan and a team to execute it. Working in the industry we’ve gathered our inner circle of the skilled and trusted professionals that help carry out this plan. These tradesmen, craftsmen, vendors etc. - are people we’ve worked with before and trust to bring your dream to life.

The best part? You don’t have to search for these great folks yourself!

4. Time-Saving Benefits

Work, kids, life in general…you have so much extra time, right?  Taking on a renovation or other design project can be overwhelming. The interior design knowledge, project management and network of trusted professionals all adds up to time SAVED for you.

Letting a designer take this off your plate and do the “heavy lifting” keeps you from having to leave work every day to receive deliveries and oversee installations, or spend weeks (months, even) assembling a team. This allows you to relax, watch it all come together and have the most efficient path to your dream home.

5. Cost-Savings Advantages

And speaking of saving time, an interior designer can also help save you from additional cost. Yes, you read that right. Contrary to what you may think, not hiring an interior designer can be expensive, as you may make certain decisions that involve additional costs or make big mistakes and spending even more money to correct them.

In addition to saving your from additional cost, an interior designer can also help you figure out your investment level of your project if you are unsure. They will not only save you time but keep you on budget.

6. Enhanced Living Spaces

The amount of time spent in our homes is significant. Your home should welcome you each day, tell your unique story and ultimately be your own personal oasis. Brining in an interior designer will improve and enhance the space both in function and aesthetic. It will also significantly improve ones quality of life by elevating pain points and creating inner peace along the way. Yes, please!

7. Well Expressed Personal Style

Now, let’s talk about the actual design of your home. While you may love you neighbors home(and/or the latest issue of House Beautiful) I guessing you probably don’t want it to look exactly like theirs. You have you own personality and lifestyle, it should reflect who you are and how you live in the space.

At 940 Interiors, we get to know you on a personal level. We’ll help you refine your aesthetic and what’s meaningful and inspiring to you to create a space that in unique.

Hiring an interior designer is an investment, but as you can see there are many benefits associated with this decision. You can be confident that your home will look its best so you can feel your best and could be the best investment you can make for yourself.
