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.”
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.
