Q What are the top 10 reasons why you should hire an interior decorator?

1. Save Money—It might sound strange to say that hiring someone to decorate your home would save you money since you have the additional fee of the designer. However, the truth of the matter is hiring a decorator can help you to avoid costly mistakes that will not only help you save money but can increase the value of your home.

2. Professional Assessment—A decorator can give you a professional assessment of your situation, which will lead to a solid plan of action. The order of things in a design plan is key in determining what can be repurposed or should be edited. This will not only affect the budget but help you to spend it more efficiently. A designer offers an extra set of eyes, but these eyes are trained to see and notice things that you may not.

3. Budgeting and Planning—A designer can keep you with your budget and save you time and effort. A designer knows where to go for resources for everything related to your home. This will save you endless amounts of time researching products, brands, and prices. A designer will have all of this readily on hand and for whatever is not readily available will spend the time researching so that you don’t have to.

4. Liaison—A decorator will be able to build a stronger bridge between you and your architect or contractor early on and can head off design misses in your overall plan. This is crucial in managing time and money. Also, decorators are trained to think about things we as consumers may overlook. It’s so important that the lighting and furnishing needs are addressed before construction. For example, if your living room sofa is floating in the middle of the room, you want to make sure you have the proper placement for floor outlets.

5. Wide Availability of Resources—There are things available to decorators that are not available to the general public in terms of connections, resources, and general merchandise. By culminating these resources, decorators can help to make your space look more collected, unique and pulled together.

6. Contacts—In addition to vendor resources, designers have many home improvement industry contacts. They can save homeowners time and headaches trying to identify reliable, contractors, plumbers, and electricians for their projects.

7. WOW Factor—Home decorators can help to give you the “WOW” factor you’ve been looking for. They are trained to think differently, know how to analyze a room spatially, and see an overall picture that clients often cannot. Thinking outside of the box is what decorators do all day long.

8. Home Sale—A decorator can potentially add a great deal to the aesthetic of your home, which in turn can increase showings and sales. This increased appeal can exponentially speed up the amount of time your home sits on the market before it is sold. The benefit here is two-fold: a faster turnaround time and more money in your pocket.

9. A Trained Eye—A decorator is a professional with a trained eye who can automatically tell you if there is something wrong or right with a space. Having that immediate consult is a major advantage when making aesthetic decisions. It is the result of years of experience.

10. Visual Storyteller—Interior decorating is a skill and an art that will only enhance the space and the quality of your life in the space. Hiring a pro raises the level of that experience and makes your house a home. A designer can help you tell your visual story.
