DDL: Do You Really Need An Interior Designer?

Do you really need an interior designer? This is a common question when everyday people renovate or build new homes. But the answer, from our side, is a resounding yes. Don’t believe us? Check out these five reasons why we think a designer is an essential part of the process!

Design doesn’t happen by chance

You may feel like you have a good eye for design, but without the know-how, connections and access to products and finishes, the process of designing a dream interior can be a long and complicated one. And it certainly does not happen by chance. A qualified designer has all the ability and industry experience to make your dreams a reality. A seasoned professional will not only help you pull off a look, but will keep things straight, tell you what will and won’t work and give you a realistic approach to what you can do to make your space feel amazing.

You’re going to save money

Designers are some of the most connected individuals in the industry. They’ve been around and can help to give you bang for your bucks! Ever fallen in love with a bed in a store and then realised it doesn’t fit into your bedroom? Or perhaps you’ve chosen a paint colour based on a swatch from the shop, but when you put it on your walls, it fails to impress! These are common rookie mistakes that can cost you time and money. However, a professional designer will be ‘in the know’ and help you avoid these pitfalls. As a result, you’ll save time and money in the long run!

You’ll gain professional input

Designers come with a wealth of knowledge and can help you pull off some amazing designs, professionally. If you’ve ever tried to DIY something at home and fallen short, then you know the value of calling in an expert! Therefore, when you hire a trained designer, you get an immediate action plan and a way forward to achieve your goals. Professional interior designers went to school and had several apprenticeships to do what they do. A trained pair of eyes will also see things you’re guaranteed to miss.

You’ll gain access to other professionals

Designers often work with broad teams and suppliers. They usually know the best brands and what will work best in certain spaces. When you hire a trained designer, you’re also gaining access to their entire network. They will be able to direct you to the right people for every job and will be able to guide you along the way. The entire decision process thus becomes to much simpler with a pro on your side to help vet suppliers and tick off the boxes.

Make a statement

At some point in life, we all think we have impeccable style. But if we are not able to pull off a certain look, we can easily miss the ball completely. A pro designer will be able to achieve the desired effect with ease. After all, that is what you’re paying them for. So, if you want to make a statement in your next project, a qualified designer is there to help you create that wow factor.
