The Top Benefits Of Hiring An Interior Designer – by Design Specialist Kaitlyn Downs, as featured in the Materials Market article by Minuca Elena HERE

Have you ever wondered what are the benefits of hiring an interior designer? Some people that have never bought a home think that an interior designer is just a glorified furniture shop assistant and they don’t see the value in paying for these services.

We often deal with customers that have just bought a new home and are struggling to renovate everything themselves.

Your new home could be new for you but at the same time, the house or the flat that you just bought may be an older build and in serious need of renovation. It’s common knowledge that properties that aren’t in great shape are cheaper than new ones.

In addition to the lower price, the main advantage is that you can renovate and choose everything according to your taste, starting from the floor tiles, to the paint colours, to the position of the electric sockets and the lights.

Still, it’s not an easy job to handle the renovation of a home. You have to deal with construction workers, choices of materials, and not knowing which suppliers offer the best quality-price rapport.

You may think that the construction workers are the professionals but the reality is that they only execute what the client wants, and if you don’t have clear requirements for them then the renovation will be very time-consuming and nerve-wracking.

In such a situation, it’s best to hire a professional. At first thought, you may not see the benefits of hiring an interior designer.

That is why we decided to ask Minuca Elena to reach out to 40 interior designers and decorators and ask them the following question:

What are the top three benefits of hiring an interior designer when renovating your home?

An experienced interior designer can be an invaluable tool to maximize the potential of your project, here are our three top benefits to hiring an interior designer for your next project.

1. Save time and money

A designer will work with you to develop a clear budget for your project, which is integral prior to the commencement of any project. Experienced designers also have industry contacts and can pass trade discounts onto clients where applicable.

Designers can also double as project managers who will create a clear schedule for the project, subsequently saving unnecessary delays at project commencement.

2. Developing a cohesive style for the project

Couples can have very different views for how they want their project to look, and having an objective third party can be vital to the success of the project.

A design expert can take multiple style preferences and create a consistent look that is aesthetically and functionally pleasing to the whole family.

3. Thinking outside the box

Interior designers excel at creative thinking and coming up with alternate solutions that you may not have thought of yourself.

Through years of experience, they have the ability to push the envelope with the design so that the end result is a unique representation of you.
