There is a common misconception that hiring an interior designer is an expensive, luxury service when in fact, it can save you money in the long run!
An interior designer is on-hand throughout the entire design process to provide support and ensure you don’t make any costly mistakes, ultimately saving you time and money.
5 Ways an interior designer can pay for itself!
1. Managing Budget
It can be difficult to know where best to spend your money and interior designers will be able to smartly work within your budget to create the perfect design, especially if your budget is small. Having worked on lots of projects, we are able to recommend where is best to spend and when to save.
2. Time saving
You can spend hours searching for the items for your dream home. Hiring an interior designer takes out all the headache and allows us to take over. An interior designer has all the time and resources to create your perfect design and assist throughout the whole design process. We can coordinate everything from the vendors and deliveries whilst being on hand to any questions that you have.
3. Property Value Increase
Whilst many homeowners become influenced by the current trend of the moment, most interior designers agree that implementing a timeless style is the key to ensuring you will love your design in years to come. When it comes to selling your home in the future, it is known that a well-designed property can increase your home’s value. According to Victoria Harvey, a well-designed home can increase your property value between 7.5 – 12.5%.
4. You will benefit from Trade discounts.
As professionals, interior designers have access to trade only discounts; these can sometimes be as much as 20% at popular high-street shops. When applying discounts for all design items including furniture, accessories, lighting and flooring…. this can quickly begin to add up. Often you will find that the discount amount will cover much of the designer fee, saving you a great deal of money and time.
5. Using Reliable and Trusted Services.
It can be difficult to find good contacts that you can trust. Interior Designers work on many projects so have all the connections that you will need, including electricians, builders and plumbers. Using your interior designer to help source contractors ensures that the professionals you are hiring are reliable, trustworthy and will install at the highest quality, avoiding any costly mistakes and ultimately saving time and money.
