Deciding the interior and different kind of designs for your home is an art, and let’s face it not all of us are good at art. However, we certainly like to look at it either way. It is also difficult in deciding what room should have what kind of furniture and most importantly the placing of things seems like an exhaustion. So, to steer away from this hassle, people mostly hire an interior designer. There are many interior designers of course, but one can’t keep on changing the milieu, there is a need for finding a trusted interior designer.
Some people might ask why there is an issue of trust while finding a or any interior designer for that matter. The problem is some interior designers just get the work off their heads, since there is a tag and a status quo for getting your house setup by an interior designer so, most people don’t judge their work but still they are not satisfied with their work after some time.
Unlike any other job, people do the work and people get satisfied with their work. But in the case of an interior designer, the customer needs to be satisfied for a long time. And yes, it is not an easy job for the hirer to select the perfect interior designer, here are some tips for the finders;
Do the best of 3 tricks. Always interview 3 best interior designers who are most talked in the town. And select the one which reads your mind.
Compare the final designs of the three interior designers, compare the amount of time and budget they tell you and then select the interior designer.
Check the previous work of the interior designer. Most interior designers carry around a catalog of their own work with them. You can also ask for their signature styling suggestions as well.
Take your time and make the interior designer understand your needs and view. Always keep a limited budget. Since interior designers keep the reputation of charging high fees, so always keep the budget first, this will let them know what to suggest to you in the first place.
Also, always state the time and duration you want the home to be completed in. Ask the interior designer that how many people of team will he/she bring with her/him, and keep an eye on the team members as well. Also,
- Ask the interior designer if he/she is allergic to the dog or the cat if you have.
- You can also ask about previous client’s testimonials.
- You can ask where he/she has completed its interior designer degree.
Remember, no matter what suggestions you get always give a regard to your gut.
