The result of a beautiful space that is balanced in design and practical in function does not happen by chance. It is accomplished through careful exploration and planning by design professionals. For some, the idea of hiring a professional interior designer might seem intimidating or even unnecessary. This could be because you are unclear about the process of working with a designer, the potential costs or what knowledge and help they actually bring to a design project that’s in your space.
No matter the industry, if you scout a professional you’re going to get the results of a trained, qualified professional. And when it comes to your personal space, you do not want to risk not getting it right. Interior designers help you envision your room more clearly and see through a lens you may not be look through on a regular basis. Here are a few things that Interior Designer’s see and you don’t.
Scale And Proportion
Ever bought a piece of furniture that looked great in the store, but was too big once you got it home? If you’re on a tight budget, a designer is going to know how to get the best value out of what you can spend and will make sure it fits and flows in your space.
Remember the time you had to paint your room three or four times before you found the right color palette? A trained pair of eyes will help you select a delicate balance of color hues that evokes the tone you want to convey in your space.
The Space As A Whole
Designers don’t just navigate furniture options one piece at a time, rather they know how the entire space as a whole will work. For example, proper outlet placement is going to depend on how you want your furniture placed. Issues like these need to be brought up to architects, contractors and building owners at the beginning, not the end of a project. Having the foresight before you start the project is essential.
Having continuous flow from room to room is not as easy as it sounds. With endless possibilities available, creating a natural flow that looks effortless requires strict aesthetic decisions.
