Why You Should Hire An Interior Designer

Albert Hadley says;

“….the designer must be able to see – make a concentrated effort to absorb the essence of the project. Seeing is a very difficult thing to do. Most people “look” at a lot of thing but never “see” anything. Looking is emotional; seeing is an intellectual process.”

Few things in life are as enriching as creating a warm haven for your family. Partnering with a caring, experienced designer lets you focus on your overarching vision while ensuring that the process runs smoothly and the details are thought out in advance.   It is your home, where your memories will be made, and you want to be able to enjoy the creative process instead of being stressed by constant decisions and deadlines.  An interior designer provides a blend of technical problem solving skills and creativity, providing you with support, making your life easier, creating a home that is everything you dreamed of, and helping you to save money in the process!


Below are some of the key  services an interior designer can provide:

Space planning – helping you determine the best placement of your furniture after careful research into your lifestyle and the way you would like each room to function.  This advance planning will help avoid costly change orders.  A designer will take into consideration scale, proportion, balance and composition when planning your spaces.

Material and finish selection and coordination – narrowing down selections for everything from your flooring to your cabinet hardware, ensuring that all of the components are well thought out and work together to create a whole that is more than the sum of its parts, and then communicating the decisions to the builder and subcontractors.

Color selection – analyzing the interplay of light in the rooms at different times of the day;  color theory and understanding your color preferences will also enter into color selection.  The environment in which the house will be located also plays a large role in your color scheme.

Designer resources –you will enjoy the advantage of carefully nurtured relationships with the finest artisans who will add custom elements to your home. If you hire an experienced designer you will also have access to furniture and fabric sources that have been developed from years traveling to markets in the US and abroad.

Fine art, rug and custom accessory selection and placement – the finishing touches!

Management of delivery & installation and standing behind the products – this service will make the final hectic days of your process much less stressful for you.  At Home on the Range we even make the beds and install the towels!


In conclusion:

An interior designer is a professional who is qualified to ensure that the finishes and furnishings in your home stand the test of time. Interior designers bring a passion for good design and a creative flair to your project.   Using a designer helps you avoid costly mistakes and, more importantly, helps you to create a home you will enjoy with family and friend for years to come!
