You can pick out decorations for your own living room, bathroom, or bedroom, right? Most people are capable of this. However, it is probably still worth hiring an interior designer to do this decorating for you. Yes, you might pay a little more for this service, but if you can afford it, there are a lot of benefits that come with hiring an interior designer.
1. A More Functional Space
Interior designers don't just choose items that look good together. They get to know you and your needs, and then they recommend decor and furniture that will work with your lifestyle and make it more functional. For instance, maybe you always do homework on your couch. The interior designer may recommend a coffee table with a pull-up top so you can bring your notebooks closer to your face. Perhaps your kids are always getting ready for school while you're showering. The interior designer may recommend a solid shower door so you can shower with privacy while they brush their teeth.
2. A Space That Reflects Your Personality
Chances are, you can pick out certain decorations you like. But creating a space that really reflects your personality takes a little more training and experience. You also have to have a broad knowledge of what products are available in order to design a space that really reflects someone's personality. This is where interior designers really shine. They have the ability to transform a space into one that's not just beautiful but one that is suited to your own, unique definition of beauty. It will feel cohesive, lovely, and like your very own place.
3. More Unique Decor and Products
Interior designers are generally in contact with the top vendors and designers. As such, they have access to and know about decor that the average person cannot get their hands on. If you want an ottoman, for example, they can generally show you hundreds of options, whereas your local home decor stores may only have a few. Interior designers also often work with smaller creators and artists, which means they can obtain unique, one-of-a-kind pieces for your home and rooms.
Hiring an interior designer does cost more than simply buying your own furniture and decor. However, if you want a space that is functional, truly feels like "you," and incorporates some unique and handmade pieces, hiring an interior designer is the way to go. Good luck, and enjoy!
