Earlier this month, I made a presentation to a civic organization sharing how working with an interior designer will save a client time AND money.
Working with a full-service interior design firm allows a client to work on everything at once. We create a cohesive plan which includes: creating a floor plan, selecting flooring, designing built-ins, choosing countertops and back splash materials, testing paints and stains, sourcing furniture, fabrics, lighting, window treatments and a myriad of decorative details. Working with an interior designer is a STREAMLINED PROCESS resulting in a whole-house cohesiveness that cannot be achieved otherwise. As a service-based firm, our relationship with a client’s budget is different than a sales based firm. Interior designers are partners in the design process. Our job is to explore ideas and provide a plan that works best for our client’s needs, lifestyle and budget.
Here is a diagram of a client’s experience before and after she hired us (this is a REAL CLIENT and her ACTUAL EXPERIENCE). Working with an interior designer simplifies the renovation process, saves time, saves money and (more importantly) saves clients from bouts of self-doubt and stressful decision-making.
