Hiring an interior designer doesn’t mean they come with a high price tag. Many people in our industry get a bad rap for being “too expensive.” The truth is you are the client and you have the ability to control the time clock. The more specific and organized you are with your intentions, the more you save. This is a great time to take advantage of a consultation to see if hiring a designer is right for you.
Did you know interior designers get wholesale pricing on furniture, lighting, flooring, window coverings and basically anything used to design your home? Designers generally take a marginal markup of goods and services and pass the rest of the savings on to you. Being able to make the right choices the first time can also be a big savings as I’m sure many of you have painted a room or bought furniture that you weren’t happy with the first time. Designers are aware of insider sales and promotions that may not be available to the general public, such as discontinued or overstock merchandise. The home improvement industry is like a secret little networking community and you need the help of an insider to help you crack the code.
Speaking of insiders, the best architects, contractors, interior designers and trades are now more available than ever and have a greater ability to work around your schedule and budget which gives you access to professionals you might not otherwise be able to afford. I’ve encountered many people that think now is the time to remodel but are confused or scared to make the commitment of hiring someone to do the work. Now is the time to take advantage of those in the industry because we can trust that they are have time to pay attention to your project along with saving you money and aggravation. Your benefit; you get professional guaranteed quality work for the best price and someone you can actually get a hold of if you have a problem. The more people you have on your team the greater chance for a smooth successful project.
