One of our core beliefs is that our homes are a reflection of ourselves and our state of mind. Of course, our homes should look amazing, but most importantly, they must feel like the perfect fit for our day to day activities. The truth is that it’s easier said than done. In the end, a well designed space encompasses a conglomeration of elements and principles that must be orchestrated cohesively.
Hiring a full-service Interior Designer may sound intimidating, especially in an era where e-design is readily available at the tip of your fingers. The truth is a full-service Interior Designer will guide you through the design process from the moment you sign your lease or (mortgage) up until the day of your move.
What are the top 6 benefits of hiring a designer?
1. Get a space that’s uniquely you
Working with an Interior Designer will give you the opportunity to live in a space that feels uniquely yours – your personal sanctuary. Our role is to uncover your voice, and most importantly, to create a living environment that aligns with the lifestyle you wish to embrace. We offer novel things, one-of-a-kind interiors, and craftsmanship you won’t find online.
2.Get your time back
Building a new home or even refreshing a room can often feel like a second gig if you’re doing it alone. Working with an Interior Designer can save you time as we know what needs to be done; which vendors need to be brought in to the project; and how to phase out the project accordingly. This perk alone will reduce the need for guesswork, which could take you longer and cost more as you move through the design process aimlessly.
3. Get more than just ‘furniture’
New furniture makes a space feel fresh and alive, but it’s often a ‘quick’ solution to the problem. As trained Interior Designers, we take on a holistic approach considering multiple factors such as the existing space, overall design concept, spatial layout & lighting, plumbing, millwork, wall and floor finishes, furnishings, and much more. To say the least, furniture sourcing is often a 10% of our design process.
4. Get resources that are unavailable to the public
The internet has made home resources much more available to the public in the last decade, and services like Pinterest, instagram and Houzz spawn lookalike interiors, lacking personality. On the other hand, we bring to the table innovative brands and vendors not available to the general public. To say the least, our connections with trade vendors will make it easy to find trustworthy electricians, plumbers, millworkers, and workrooms.
5.Work with a qualified Liaison
We act as a Project Manager as we coordinate all communication between the client, contractor, architect, consultants, and vendors. We know the key elements that must be coordinated accordingly so all trades can execute seamlessly. For instance, deciding on the type of chandelier for a particular area may seem like a small decision in the grand scheme of things, but it’s a major decision that may impact construction. For instance, if the intent is to hang a chandelier heavier than 40 lbs, additional blocking must be added and coordinated early during the construction phase. Small things like these could easily fall through the cracks if an expert is not in charge.
6. Get procurement and installation handled for you
The difference between an E-Designer vs. a full-service Interior Designer is the level of support clients receive. With full-service Designers, clients are guaranteed 100% support from the Design team throughout the entire process. For instance, not only we source all the elements that makes up the design (i.e. tiling, flooring, paint, wall finishes, furniture, plumbing), but we also handle the procurement process from the point of purchase up until delivery and on-site installation.
