Hiring an interior designer is often overlooked when buying or designing your own place. Here at LOFT, we firmly believe that professionally designing your home is not only a work of art, but a necessity, to fully utilise the space you’ve invested so much effort in. Below are some of the main reasons why an Interior Designer’s input is worth every cent spent.
1. Save Money
Strange as it might sound, a designer can help you to steer away from costly choices that will you save money and more importantly, increase the value of your home. A designer helps you coordinate your home to give you a harmonious experience, and to buy or design furniture that is proportionate to the space while sticking to your budget.
2. Economise on Time
Apart from being economical with your money, interior designers can help you be economical with time. You may not know how structural decisions can influence the installation of mechanical systems, options for new materials or cheaper technologies that could be more appropriate than what you are familiar with. Figuring out such issues takes a considerable amount of time and a designer will have this information and contacts at the ready for you.
A designer will be able to build a sturdier bridge between you and your architect, eliminating any design misses in your general plan. This is a crucial aspect that ties in to managing money and time. Moreover, designers are competent in considering things you might not have thought of. It’s also imperative that lighting and furnishing requirements are addressed prior to construction.
4. A wide availability of Resources and Contacts
There are things available to designers that are not available to the general public in terms of connections, resources and general merchandise. By capping these resources, designers can help make your space look more unruffled, distinctive and stylish. Besides vendor resources, designers have many home improvement industry connections, saving homeowners time and headaches trying to find dependable, contractors, plumbers and electricians for their ventures.
5. Increase your property value
Accentuate your home by adding a great deal to the aesthetic side of it, which in turn increases viewings and sales. This growth in appeal can exponentially accelerate the amount of time your home sits on the market before it is sold. A good designer will have a knack for turning your home into a place for potential resale in the near or distant future. If you are going to sell your home in a few years, you want it designed for a potential deal to be closed. You would need striking images to help sell your home and a designer would know the specific ways to enhance your home for such photography.
Designers are proficient in thinking differently spatially, and can see an overall picture that clients usually cannot, since thinking outside the box comes second nature to them. Whether you have no idea where or how to begin to decorate your home or need help tying pieces together, LOFT can help you out. You must debunk the idea that interior designers are only there for the well-off who have an abundance of money to spare, because the reality is, that they save you time and money.
