Things to Look for When Choosing an Interior Designer

Tired of the same old home décor but don’t have the creative mindset to redesign it all yourself? Hiring a professional interior designer can help you turn your home into a beautiful living area that you’re happy to show off to guests, while catering to your personal tastes and budget.
But how do you decide who to trust with your home?

1

Recommendations

Recommendations

Ask around to see if anyone you know has hired an interior designer before and find out if they would recommend them. Also, you should ask them about the process and how they felt with the final outcome.

2

Portfolio

Portfolio

Always ask the designer for their portfolio, so you can see what they have created in the past. This way you can see their quality of work, what they are able to achieve and if they’re the right person for the job. Don’t be put off with the style as your designer will work to your brief – just because you don’t like what they have specifically created for another client, focus on the finish and quality as your brief will always be different to someone else’s.

Budget

Budget

Before getting in touch with interior designers, decide on your budget so they know what they are working with and can give you a realistic idea of what can be achieved within your interior design budget.

Caters to Your Style

Caters to Your Style

Browse online - Pinterest is great for this as you can collect some images of what you’re looking to recreate or take inspiration from. This way the designer knows exactly what you’re looking for and can tell you if the idea is feasible. It’s also a lot easier than trying to describe your vision with words. Also, you can look on Houzz for inspiration and to find professionals in your area who can help you with your interior design project.

5

Communication

Communication

Throughout the entire process, you need to be sure that there will be regular contact between you and the designer.

Without clear communication you won’t know where all your money is going or what exactly is happening to your home. Make sure you have your input and ask questions whenever you feel the need to. Also, don’t be afraid to say no to ideas you dislike – sometimes it is better for the designer to know exactly what you don’t like so they can present ideas that will match your preferred styles and themes.

6

Trust

Trust

You need to trust your interior designer, their skills and their promise to create you a beautiful home. With plenty of experience in their pocket, you may be surprised at some of the ideas you will end up liking. It’s all about you both being co-operative and open-minded.
