Why Hire a Professional Interior Designer?

I decided to take a break today from our Trends of 2012 event to talk about the benefits of hiring a true professional interior designer. I recently finished a design project for a client who had a personal experience in regards to the difference between someone who calls themselves a "designer" or "decorator" and working with an actual professional interior designer.

One of my clients previously had a self-proclaimed "designer" come in to give her some advice to change her previous theme she had but just wasn't in love with. All the designer said was, “Oh, well it looks like you have a good design going on, I wouldn’t change anything, looks like you have a handle on it” and left.   Hearing this from my client just made me want to cringe.  As a designer, how can you not change something when the client clearly wants something different and is not happy with there space?!  

The designer failed to see the clients needs and wants; she couldn't give any design advice because she lacked the knowledge to help.  Well, fine doesn’t cut it, especially when the client wants something different. A professional knows there is always something you can do to change the look and feel of the room and bring it to the next level. As we can see, this "designer" was clearly not a professional.

This particular client of mine does indeed have an eye for design and did a good job of bringing elements together in her home. She had a nice home before; but now she has a room perfect for her and her family, that meets all of her needs and she now LOVES it! 

It is so, so, so important when hiring a designer or even when looking for some design help to seek out a professional interior designer with a degree, experience, and a portfolio to back up their design talk. Avoid the all so common people who call themselves "designers" or "decorators" and truly are not. It takes not only education, but a certain set of skills to come into ones private home and design a room that will perfectly suite their style and needs.

Luckily, here at The Design House Interior Design we do just that! We take the time to get to know our clients in order to provide for them the best design possible.  Although we love what we do, we are a professional interior designer firm who take our jobs very seriously. Whether the problem is big or small, due to our education and skills, we find the solution and can work with almost any budget.  We make the design process simple by making sure that everything is done right the first time.  This saves our clients time, stress and money; which is what a professional interior designer does.

  If you need some interior design help whether it's accessorizing a bookcase to changing up your entire home, make sure you hire a professional firm like The Design House Interior Design.  I promise, you won't regret it!
