Do You Think Using An Interior Designer Will Be Too Expensive?

Please Stop This Right Now!

More than anything else, interior design is a service.  We pay for all kinds of services to make our lives better.  Yet why do we feel a service that can make our largest asset be the best it can be, is too expensive?

Medium Dress 2 Two Major Misconceptions About Hiring An Interior Designer

Our Project Is Too Small

Our design firm does not look for “projects” and therefore none are too small or too large.  We want to have you as a client and build a long term relationship.  Our home’s needs change just as rapidly as our lives do.  Today you may need advice to be confident about a paint color selection.  Tomorrow your bathroom may need some tweaking.  Later you may move into a new house that works differently from your previous home.  Sometimes you may just want a quick re styling of the space you have.  Start considering an interior designer as service that evolves with you.  Make the call, have the first conversation and see how flexible a good designer can be.

Designers Fees Are Too Expensive

Really?  Have you asked or are you just assuming?  Most firms, like ours, have hourly rates that are the same for every client in every budget.  We love nothing more than to chat with you and be given the opportunity to show you what we can accomplish together in the number of hours you want to allocate to each project.   For the cost of a nice dinner, and a bottle of wine, you could start working with your new, lifelong designer pretty quickly.



The Role Of Interior Design


Every one of us lives in some kind of structure we call home.  Every house is unique.  Different sizes, architectures, and in various locations.  However, all are similar in their roles of being our personal sanctuaries.  We will eat, sleep, work, play, laugh and cry in these structures.  Good design is about working with what we have and making it fit our needs.



Notice this quote does not say anything about money being the key to great design.  Do you know how much money is needed for a good interior design…enough and that is a different number for each of us.  For the best outcome, be honest with your designer about your budget, realistic about expectations and heed the advice you are paying for.

    1. Some firms are expensive. But it’s just like clothing….being creative and working within each of our comfort zones is how we can be successful. Everyone has a budget…they are simply different.
