Every interior design will tell you that one of the most common questions they are asked is 'why pay a designer when I can design just as well myself?'... Why use an Interior Designer? There are many people capable of decorating their homes to their desired effect, but if you want the complete finished home with the real wow factor, call in the experts. The following are some of the reasons why. 1. So many people have absolutely no idea of where to buy the furniture they desire and spend days, if not weeks and months searching for it. These boring shopping trips have even been known to cause a few divorces! 2. An experienced Interior Designer will have had years of training in his or her desired field, most of them covering all aspects of the design industry. They will have also had many years of practical experience of designing, organising, co-ordinating and project managing it entirely. 3. Sadly so many builders, plumbers and electricians are not capable of dealing with the jobs they are quoting for. An Interior Designer has eliminated the bad guys! 4. Experience also brings years of dealing with committed contractors who would advise on lighting schemes, plumbing requirements and if required, necessary building works. 5. Probably one of the better reasons for employing a designer, is the fact that they can save you money in the long run. Designers have access to all the best furniture, carpet, fabric houses, lighting engineers and suppliers in the world.
