1. Save money and time

It might sound strange that hiring someone to decorate your home would save you money since you have the additional fee of the designer, however hiring a designer can help you to avoid costly mistakes that will not only help you save money but can increase the value of your home.


Ever bought a piece of furniture online, that was too big once you got it home or the quality wasn’t what you expected? Ever painted a room a few different times and still don’t love it? We believe if you do it right the first time, you won’t have to do it again.


Your designer will help you to plan, organize and coordinate every step of your design project, while minimizing the chances of any errors or mishaps happening along the way. This can ultimately prevent costly mistakes, while also giving you the exact result you have been aiming for.

2. Space Planning

One of the most common problems we run into when we get into a clients home is inappropriately sized and location of furniture. Most people have too small of furniture or too large of furniture, therefore space planning is one of the most important reasons to hire a designer.

3. Wide Availability of Resources

There is a world of furniture, fabrics and accessories that are available “to the trade” only, which is a huge reason to hire a designer to finish your space. There are things available to designers that are not available to the general public in terms of connections, resources, and general merchandise. By culminating these resources designers can help to make your space look more collected, unique, and pulled together. We also pass on some of our savings to our clients that we receive with our trade only suppliers, so not only are you getting the best quality of furniture but you are also saving money.

4. Problem Solving

If you have moved into a new home or about to remodel your current one, now would be the best time to bring in a designer so that everything from color/paint selection to furniture can be appropriately selected to reflect your style. Also, we design each rooms in its entirety instead of piecing the room together which usually results in a less than satisfactory outcome.

5. Budget and Planning

A designer can keep you on budget and save you time and effort. A designer knows where to go for resources for everything related to your home and will help you prioritize where to spend the budget to give you the most out of your house transformation. This will save you endless amounts of time researching products, brands, and prices.

    It got me when you said that having a designer will save us money because we can avoid costly mistakes in the process. My sister should definitely hire one instead of doing things on her own for her new apartment. It would actually be the best idea for her budget, because she already spent most of her savings in buying that property this year.
