Why Hire an Interior Designer?
One thing we believe at Lisa Scheff Design’s is that everyone’s home should be a perfect, comfortable and expressive retreat where they begin and end their days. It should be a reflection of you and your family, but also be functional which is why we believe everyone needs an interior designer.
With the existence of HGTV, Home Goods, Michaels, Pinterest and a little motivation, why would anyone need to hire a designer? Because a designer isn’t just there for inspiration (although they are certainly good for it) but they are there to provide the science behind the design and make sure that you are happy with every piece, the first time. Interior design is a skill that far outreaches that of just choosing color palettes and furniture.
Hiring a designer will save you time:
Interior designers are not only formally trained, but they also have years of working experience (which everyone knows is where you really learn). We have spent literally thousands of hours researching products, finding new solutions, and building beautiful spaces. We have the ability to find products in hours what would potentially take a client weeks.
You may be thinking “it’s just a great room, I can do it.”
- What kind of rug? How big should it be?
- Where should we hang lights? How do I avoid hot spots?
- What size art should I use?
- How tall should my cocktail table be? And my end tables?
Imagine going out and choosing a sofa that you believe will be a perfect fit for your space. Once you get it home, you realize that it is blocking your door, or a walkway or the color isn’t right and it clashes with the rest of your room. What would you do? Never use that door or walkway again? Repaint the room? With a designer, you are less likely to make an expensive mistake like this.
At Lisa Scheff Designs, we provide room drawings, floor plans and design boards for each room before deciding on anything to purchase for your home. We have conversations about your views, desires, and overall desired outcome. These conversations and documents not only save you a headache but also eliminates the potential for an expensive mistake.
In addition to saving you from a costly mistake, interior designers also have access to quality products and trade-only pieces. Often times, this connection gets you high quality, custom pieces at less than retail prices.
Design World Liasion-Stress Reliever:
We’ve worked with a lot of different installers, contractors, electricians, and painters, so you don’t have to go through the process of finding one yourself. We also speak their language and, if included early enough, we can work as a team to en
sure your space is completed just the way you dreamed and we planned it would be. Leave it to us-we know what we’re doing.
Finally, we have experience solving problems. Every project, big or small, presents its challenges. No worries- we are trained and have experience coming up with solutions that work. Leave the stress to us.
We get it. Hiring a designer can be intimidating. You could be concerned about the process, whether you will agree with their ideas, or even afraid of the price tag. Don’t be afraid, reach out to us and we can explain our process and pricing.
