Your time is valuable! When it comes to a remodel, it takes a lot of time to manage the project. Interior Designers are here to make this process easier. We alleviate the time it takes to pick out the right light fixture. Smoothly run the day to day time of scheduling and managing deadlines, as well as the contractors that come in to demo and rebuild your space. We take on this task, so you are free to leave the house for the day and know things are getting taken care of. You also won’t have to spend hours and hours looking for the right fabrics and finishes for your space. There are thousands of options out there, and we can help you quickly narrow down to the right options for your design inspiration as well as the correct function for your space. Taking on this task yourself can become very overwhelming. We can guide you smoothly through these decisions so you can enjoy the process.
But, will this cost you more? I’m on a budget and designers are expensive, right? Wrong! No matter your budget, you can afford a designer. First of all, a designer can help you avoid those costly mistakes that can come up. We have done this time and time again. We are the person you can lean on to make sure you get it right the first time. We will access your situation and help you determine where to spend and where to save. We have also built relationships with contractors that give us great discounts that we can then pass on to our client. We have already done the job of vetting these contractors, so you know you have talented people working on your project. Same with your materials. Designers get trade discounts and exclusive access to products that aren’t given to the public. When you take all the discounts we can provide, even with the cost of us designing and managing your project, you still come out saving money. For instance, I had a friend that was redoing his kitchen. He went to Home Depot and picked out some premade cabinets, got a layout done, and received a quote. He came to me, because he couldn’t understand why it costs so much for cheap, premade cabinets and laminate countertops. This was maxing out his budget and he wasn’t even getting his new tile floor and opening up a wall. I knew his budget was adequate for what he wanted in his small kitchen so I passed his kitchen designs onto my cabinet maker. He came up with a beautiful custom cabinet design, that not only saved my friend some money, but got him better quality cabinets. This freed up the money he needed to knock out a wall between his kitchen and living room. It also allowed him to get a really beautiful Granite countertop. All while having a full complete kitchen design. Yes, he had to pay me for my time on his project, but he came out spending $500 less and getting everything he wanted. His kitchen turned out beautiful and I was there to help him through the whole process. Hiring a designer can pay for itself!
A designer can be your single point of contact for your whole project. We are here to speak for you. We want to keep you on budget and on schedule. If something goes wrong, you know who to call. We can take care of these issues. If the tile you chose is more expensive than you were hoping, we can find ways to negotiate to get you the look you want. Maybe that marble floor won’t work, but we know the perfect porcelain tile that looks just like marble. When we start a project in your home, it becomes our home too. We want everything to go right and stay on budget. When the project is done, we want to be proud to hand your home back to you. This industry can be overwhelming, and we are here to fight for you to get everything right!
Cohesive Plan-That “Wow” Factor
With all the options out there, it’s easy to go astray. A designer can help keep the overall look and feel of the space on track. We narrow down the choices and only present things that we know will work for you. Yes, those barstools are cool looking, but may not fit in your space. We will find you several that can work. You will still be a major part of the decision-making process. But we make this really easy on you. When it’s all said and done, your kitchen can look just as you envisioned.
Designers love what they do. And everyone I know puts their whole heart into their work. We go to sleep thinking about your project. Our clients become our friends. You can put your space in our hands with the confidence that it will become what you dreamed it to be.
