Who in their right mind would want to hire an interior designer?

Why you should hire and Interior Designer
Do not hire this interior designer

Thinking of hiring an interior designer? All you’ll get is a black-clad freakishly skinny dictator that waltzes into your home with a vision of medieval-Florence-meets-Space-Odyssey to slap some eau-de-nil chalk paint on the cat and turn your once-cozy-but-dull Victorian semi into an explosion in a swatch factory. Interior designers help you say goodbye to your bank balance and hello to the guffaws of your friends as they tour your new monstrosity (we’re talking about your house, by the way).

It doesn’t have to be like this. In fact, 99.95% of the time, it’s never like this. And that’s because every good interior designer has you and your style at the heart of everything they do. Because, although they know and love design, interior designers love happy clients best of all. Happy clients are how interior designers make a name for themselves. Happy clients are how interior designers stretch their own artistry.

So, interior designers have an ulterior motive. They want to exercise their skill, knowledge and artistry to create something that you’ll love and that you’ll love to live with every day. Because it’s not about their style - it’s about yours. Even if you don’t yet know your style. (Newsflash; they’ll help you find it.)

They know things that you don’t

It’s not just that good interior designers are skilled and trained in the big things like ergonomics, spatial concepts, colour dynamics, building structure, safety codes, and the technicalities of refurbs. It’s the small things that can make a difference - the right height at which to hang your kiddy’s art for the fullest impact; the right window treatment to cut down the noise from that busy road outside; the right spotlighting to accentuate that crazy-weird mask you love so much, the one you bought on your honeymoon in Tanzania.

They know it’s about you, not them

Your interior designer is really a people person. They get to know you and what you like, what you hate and what’s important to you. They’ll find out how you want to use your space - home, office, hotel - whatever.

They’ll be able to put together and express just what it is you’re aiming for and be able to work with you and guide you, but without taking over. Whether you want luxury but with a lived-in boho quality, a zingy 1950s Miami vibe or a just-this-side-of-twee cottage rose feel, they’ll use their skill to help you express yourself.

They see things you can’t

Because of their in-house knowledge, your friendly neighbourhood interior designer will pick up on things that you might have overlooked. For example, if you’re having wooden flooring fitting, your interior designer will make sure that your skirting boards are fitted after the floor, to hide expansion gaps and avoid the need for beading.

It’s cost effective

If you want to create a space to live or work in that’s just right for you, then interior design is an investment. Yes, it appears as an extra cost now, but in the long term (and short term) it’s very often extremely cost effective.

Firstly, you won’t be making any painful and pricey mistakes as you forge ahead on your own; secondly, your interior designer will often obtain materials and expertise at industry cost (which makes it cheaper than if you’d sourced it yourself) and thirdly, a damn good design will give your space the wow factor which will increase your home’s value if you ever want to sell up.

It’s a fact. Research has shown that having an interior designer work their magic significantly boosts potential buyer appeal.

We admit we’re a bit biased. We have over 60 years experience in the flooring industry, so we’ve met and worked alongside many interior designers over the years and we’re super impressed with the work they do and how pleased our clients have been with them.

If help with interior design is something that you’re looking for, we’d be pleased to recommend one of our excellent designers that we’ve have the pleasure of working with.
