Why You Should Hire an Interior Designer

In having a home renovation (or even a home construction), many people ask if hiring an interior designer would be a good idea.


The answer to this question will primarily rely on you if you think your money will be worth all the advantages of hiring an interior designer can give you. A common misconception about interior designers is that they should only be hired by the rich celebrities, but the truth is, if you think about what they can do for you and your home, you can actually gain something important.


To help you arrive at a decision, here are some of the good reasons you should hire an interior designer for your next home renovation project:


  • An interior designer isn’t only there to help you design your home and make it more beautiful, they know which designs and which pieces can actually add value to your home.


  • Interior designers can help you maintain your budget while choosing materials up to the very last home decor. If you do it alone, there’s always a risk that you will go overboard and over your budget and be enticed by something that’s not on your initial plan.


  • Interior designers know where to find the pieces you are looking for; you don’t have to waste time, money, and effort going around the city to find the decorative piece you’re dreaming to have.


  • Interior designers have connections and have the power to give you access to one-of-a-kind items you may not readily find even in the biggest furniture shops in the city.


  • When you have an interior designer, you have someone to give you an impartial opinion and useful information about every material you choose for your home. They can tell you the weaknesses and flaws of something you want to purchase for your home so you know upfront what to expect. You won’t always get that honesty from salespeople when you buy the items yourself.

Differences Between an Architect and an Interior Designer

If this is the first time you will have your home renovated, there are so many things you have to familiarize yourself with. Knowing the basics of the home makeover that you are planning to have can help you avoid possible scams and will prepare you for what to expect during the actual renovation.


One of the things homeowners are usually confused about is the difference between an architect and an interior designer. Yes, you hear about them from the home renovation company, but what do they really do? Do you really need them for your home makeover?


An architect is responsible for the appearance, construction, and structure of your home. They design the appearance of the actual home – where each room should be, the area each room should take. Their job mainly revolves around the actual construction and appearance of your building (home) From ceilings to the exterior walls of your home.


An interior designer, on the other hand, is responsible for the look and appearance of the details of your home – they decide on the light fixtures, cabinets, furniture items – even down to the drapes that will enhance the look of your home. Seasoned interior designers won’t only make your home more beautiful, some of them will also choose home items that are multi-functional to make sure that you get the value for your money.


Both professionals play an essential role in ensuring that your home is not only well built but is also beautiful in its interior and exterior – from the roof to the faucets. The job of an architect and the duty of an interior design go hand in hand.


Which One Should You Hire?


Reliable architects and interior designers can save you from a lot of errors when you hire them because they should be able to help you in making the home design of your dreams come to life – the architect assuring that your home is well built and the interior designer ensuring that every item indoor will be in keeping with the design you have in mind.
