In India, hiring an interior designer is perceived to be a luxury as the general belief is that hiring a professional to look after your home/office interiors is an expensive task. Contrary to popular belief, however, these days it is very much possible to get the perfect interior designer for your residence/workplace without tweaking your budget.
In fact, hiring an interior designer is a necessity, more than anything else. The space you have is limited these days and we're sure the last thing you would want is to end up working or living in a space you constantly keep thinking - 'Could have been better!'
Here we have different reasons explaining why is hiring an interior designer important.
Why YOU SHOULD Get An Interior Designer To Design Your Home or Office:
And... we've got a cool visual guide as well at the end, which you can download for a quick reference too!
1. It is your space & They’ll make sure of it has your personality in it:
What is it that makes a home or office yours? The answer is 'reflection of your personality'. People like to live in a home that represents their personality and also gives them a sense of belongingness. Some people like decorating the walls of their office or home with paintings, others don't. Some like a house or office well-furnished while others prefer light furnishing.
We always like to customize things according to our own needs. Hiring an interior designer ensures that your home/office gets that personal touch and is a reflection of your personality. Just let your designer know what you expect, and you can leave the rest to him/her.
2. Interior Designers can visualise your house/workspace a lot better than you would:
Interior designers are experts who deal with homes and offices desings on an everyday basis. They are hence in a much better position to understand the kind of home/office you will need.
It is normal for people to get overboard with regards to expectations regarding workplace or home, but it isn't necessary that everything that you want will look good in the available space. Thus, an expert is needed to synchronise your thoughts with reality. Interior designers can visualise your house, even better than you can.
3. Do you know what style you need for your home/office?
There isn't just one interior design style you can choose from. There are in fact a lot of options available and it isn't easy to understand the overall flow of one particular style. If you simply take photographs of the styles you like and get a contractor to design the workplace/home, there are high chances that the outcome will look patched up together!
Interior Designers understand the design, aesthetics and also have the ability to blend styles seamlessly to get your dream home/office ready!
Why take the chance when an expert can do things in a much better way?
4. Balance between functionality and beauty:
Interior Designers not only understand your requirements but will also know how to blend them with functionality and create a place that truly as lives up to your expectations and doesn't fall back on the utility aspect, either.
This, especially helps when the space you have is limited. The last thing you would want in your new office/home is feeling claustrophobic!
5. You need an expert for many things, Why not your home or office?
A Science teacher cannot teach English as well as an English teacher can. It's quite obvious that an expert performs a task in the best possible way, that is why he/she is an expert!
Even, we ourselves would often want to go to a hair stylist for our hair, or prefer a trained professional to service our appliances and automobiles, then why not hire a pro for our home or office?
We hire experts for many things, why not for something as important as a place to live or work?
6. Saves Time…. And wait for it… MONEY!
YES! Hiring an interior designer leads to saving time and MONEY! Think about it closely, if you do not hire a designer, you'll have to run after contractors and labourers, will have to look after the paint job, ask for numerous quotes, haggle and so on. But, once you hire a designer, all these responsibilities will be taken care of by him/her! It will cost you money, since the designer is an expert who would charge a fee for his/her service, but still, it will eventually save you money.
An expert designer helps you saves on unwanted expense over the material, rejections, rework, etc. And you wouldn't need to bother missing out on work due to your new home/office project. An expert interior designer can be relied upon, simply tell all your expectations to him/her and wait for your dream home or office to unveil before your own eyes!
7. Better Resale!
A home/office, designed by an expert will be perfect from a lot of aspects. Be it space utilisation, paint, quality of finish, and so on.
And if you ever plan to buy a new house/office, your current home/workplace will have a better resale value! When compared with houses/offices that haven't been perfectly designed, your house would stand out and attract better deals.
8. It is VERY EASY to find a PERFECT Interior Designer for your home or office:
If you think hiring an interior designer is a time-consuming, difficult process - you are wrong.
