The infographic describes ten considerations to make before hiring an interior designer for the first time. This can be a daunting experience since many homeowners will only do it once or twice in their lives.
The 10 tips before hiring an interior decorator include researching designers and styles as well as browsing online galleries and designer portfolios to narrow down your options. Once you find a shortlist of local interior design companies to work with, book a consultation with a clear, firm budget in mind.
When you meet your interior designer for the initial consultation, ensure they completely understand your tastes and style preferences. Describe what you want and what you need based on how the space is used and discuss the financial side. Ask about pricing structures, costs, and the time until completion. Listen to the expert and tell them your budget. They will offer solutions for your design needs.
Knowing where your budget is going can really help with choosing cheaper materials or furniture alternatives. You should receive final approval on all the design choices before commitment.
