Top 10 Reasons to Work with an Interior Designer

Here are the Top 10 Reasons to Work with an Interior Designer:

1) The ability to solve problems. Whether you’re plagued by a lack of storage, a featureless room or poor traffic flow, Holly Frye of Interiors By Design is an expert in understanding color, scale, light and space – concepts that can be hard for even the most talented amateur to get right.

2) The expertise to prevent costly mistakes. Most people decorate only once or twice in a lifetime. There are lots of things that are hard to know unless you’ve encountered them dozens of times before.

3) Access to a much wider range of resources. There’s a world of fabric and furnishing designs available just “to the trade.” Not only do we have access, but we will instantly know who specializes in what you are looking for – thus saving valuable time.

4) A Rolodex worth millions. Any design is only as good as its execution, and we know the best workrooms, carpenters and painters, so we have the connections – and the clout – to make sure the job will be top-notch.

5) Guidance through the decision-making process. Perhaps the toughest aspect of decorating is selecting from the multitude of choices available. We know our sources well enough to edit down the options and offer seasoned advice to steer you through the process.

6)Better quality and longer lasting style. We won’t succumb to trends that you will tire of in no time but will create a timeless look you’ll enjoy living with for years. Instead of relying on solely off-the-rack items, we will also add custom details and paint finishes that will make your house an individual masterpiece.

7) Help with setting priorities. We will give you advice on how best to spend your money now – and plan for future phases of the decorating process. If you’re on a budget (and who isn’t?), you need us to help allocate your dollars to get the biggest bang for your buck.

8) Arbitration with your significant other. Sometimes the role of the designer is more marriage counselor than designer, but it’s an expected part of the process. If there is a disagreement about an approach, we can be the third party without vested interest.

9) The power to advocate with tradespeople, showrooms and manufacturers. We set a high standard, and because we work with these resources regularly, we have more leverage to get things repaired or replaced. Long-standing business relationships help resolve disputes in a professional manner.

10) The power to get the job done! How often have you given up halfway through a project or neglected those last few niggling details? It’s our job to follow through on every aspect of the decorating process and make sure that all the elements have been completed to your satisfaction.
