6 Reasons Why You Should Hire an Interior Designer

Last week we talked about the mental benefits of a home refurbishment and why is it important to start a project during the pandemic with its multiply lockdowns. Since COVID hit, we are all looking for new hobbies and distractions from the world, and many of us have started DIY projects, from banana bread baking to home renovation.

With the popularity of short 1-minute long home renovation TikTok videos, it is tempting to go on Amazon and order everything you need for a complete make-over. However, if you are planning a bigger project, before you hop on the bandwagon of DIY projects, you may consider hiring an interior designer. Here are our reasons why:

1. Costly mistakes

Interior designers can help you avoid mistakes that can cost you a fortune. They have a high understanding of room layouts, and they are trained to see what furniture can fit into your interior and how. Interior designers also know the best places to shop for interior items, so you don't have to settle for something you don't really like but was easy to find, designers can source pieces fitting to your personal style. An expert also knows if an item is really worth its price tag, so you don't lose money on something less worth it.

3. Personality, please!

If you look around in your home and don't feel homey, you should start thinking about a refurbishment. Sometimes, our taste can change over time, and the interior you once loved no longer reflects your taste, style, or personality. Interior designers can help to bring out the most of your home, involving you in every aspect of choosing the right colours, furniture and lighting. For example, our design team always considers our clients' taste and opinions to create unique but fitting homes in West London.

The eye of a designer is trained to see what you can't. They are professionals who know how to utilize every inch of your interior and make it functional yet aesthetically pleasing. When you decide the room's function, the designer can bring the most out of it with the future role in mind. They can pick the lighting and decoration or even design the furniture that fits the function.

5. Advanced knowledge

There is a common misconception that interior designers are only responsible for choosing the right wall colour with matching furniture. Interior designers work closely with architects to design the interior space and have experience within the construction field. Their main purpose is to redesign your home with function and style in mind. They consider floorplans, the shapes of the room and walls, and every inch of your home.
