With all the options out there, it can be overwhelming to know how to start selecting furnishings for your dream home. An experienced designer can help lead you through this process. Furniture plans and a realistic budget are important first steps. A designer’s relationships with “To the Trade Only” vendors provide options that you may not have access to. A designer’s expertise in the elements and principles of design will create beautiful rooms that look and feel cohesive.
1. We Help You to Create a Plan for Your Vision
Start with a plan! Your answers to questions about how you use your rooms along with your current furnishings are the input needed to develop furniture plans that make sense for your family. We review images together to develop an understanding of your style preferences, whether you have a clear vision for your aesthetic, or if you need assistance finding your “style”.
2. We Help You to Develop a Realistic Budget
Once the quantity and types of pieces needed to furnish your room are identified, a realistic budget allowance can be developed. Custom furnishings are not inexpensive, but they are a good investment in your home. Many other furnishings look great, but will not stand up to the demands of an active family. Designers understand how furniture should be constructed to withstand consistent daily use. Interior Designers have access to quality furnishings and can help you understand when to save and when to splurge.
3. We Have Access to Products You Don’t
With so many options out there, it can be difficult to know where to start. Interior Designers have access to quality furnishings that will fit your budget, your design style and your lifestyle. Designers also have access to “To the Trade Only” lines that you would not be able to purchase otherwise. These lines allow designers to curate furnishings and fabrics that are unique to you!
4. We Know How to Pull It All Together
A beautiful room consists of individual pieces properly scaled and balanced, to both one another and the room they inhabit. When working with a designer, you can rely on his or her knowledge, experience, and expertise to help you to achieve your design goals. A room should not be a collection of your favorite pieces, but rather a curated combination of frames, finishes and textures that together express your style. The details matter!
Working with a designer can remove the stress from furnishing your home, and you can be as involved in the decision-making process as you would like to be. The result is a long-term relationship with a professional who understands your family, your home and your style.
