It is crucial to think about the totality of the design before thinking about its parts. This means, that you have to visualise the final result of the design and what do you want to achieve, before making any decision or purchase.
Most people buy items without thinking about the total picture. Once the homeowners place these items or furniture together in their space, they realise that the result of their room was not the one they were looking for.
This visualisation of the final design is quite complicated if you are not a professional. An interior designer can visualise your space and guide you through the process. We even have tools to show our clients their final designs with 3D images of their space. Every room detail and piece of furniture would be measured, planned and carefully chosen to work beautifully together.
That is why hiring an interior designer can save you money avoiding costly mistakes.
Interior designers are constantly in contact with vendors and therefore we have trade discounts that we can share with you.
These discounts can vary between projects and stores, but they are sometimes up to 40%. It is important to have in mind that this discount usually covers the designer’s fee. Therefore, you end up paying much less for the interior design services than what you thought.
Not only you are going to save money on the products you purchase for your home, but you also receive special treatment from vendors in terms of deliveries, returns, and any unexpected situation you may have.
You maybe didn’t think about it because you are not planning on selling your home. However, it is always a good move to increase the value of your property, either if you are selling it or not.
An interior designer helps you create a beautiful home for you to live right now. At the same time, if you want to sell your property in the future, it will happen faster and for the very best price.
Interior designers maximise the potential of your home.
Take a look at this home extension in North London to see an example of how we can highly increase the value of your property.
We always start every project with a brief of your needs, requirements, timing and budget. It is really important for us to know how much do you want to spend on your project. We always plan the whole design according to your needs.
Interior designers know which pieces are more expensive, and with which ones you can save some money. We discuss the options with our clients and try to get the perfect parity for them.
You don’t need to have a huge budget in order to create a beautiful and functional design. Take a look at this project as an example of a reduced budget well invest. We always create balance in your budget and the design.
Time is very precious these days. A designer in charge of your interior design project can save you a lot of it.
As interior designers, we check everything that you may or may not thought about to create the perfect interior for you. Different layout possibilities, measurements, materials and finishes based in your preferences. Furniture selection, lead times, stock, pricing, durability… those are some of the things an interior designer always have into account.
Design is about thousands of details behind the scenes that take a lot of time. Time that you can spend doing what you love while we are doing what we love the most as well.
Designers come with a budgeting and planning mind to help you don’t go over budget. It is super easy to go over price in any interior design project. Even if you try to plan everything beforehand, there are always changes and situations that make the budget go up.
In order to avoid this, we always create a product list showing all the items included in the proposed design. This list shows everything you need to purchase and the total price of it.
You have a better understanding of the total cost and you can decide where to spend the money better. It is important to keep track of everything, from materials to finishing touches so you can know exactly where your money is going.
Interior designers have an important role in working closely with engineers and architects. If you are doing a renovation or an extension in your property it would be worth it an interior designer’s help.
The designer looks at different elements of the house before they are finished. We put everything together in our minds and create a cohesive design for your home. For instance, if a light needs to be placed above the dining table, it is important to know beforehand where the dining table goes. The same with doors, or even corridors.
With this final design in mind, we can think about how the space and the furniture will work together. The lighting plan, positioning of furniture, cupboards, doors… Designers think about any element as a whole, to ensure that the final design has the maximum potential. All the little details need to be thought in advance. That is going to save you money and headaches avoiding future inconveniences.
Interior designers not only have relationships with vendors and stores. We are always working closely with builders, electricians, carpenters and all types of subcontractors.
Working with these tradesmen for years, we trust our experience with them and their professionalism. We can happily recommend these professional workers to our clients and we are sure that they can do a much better job than anyone you may research and find on your own.
We have clients that came to us after a bad experience and they didn’t want to risk their properties and their money again. The contacts of an interior designer are valuable because we know them and we know how they work.
If you have any item in your home that you would want to keep, show it to your interior designer. When assessing your design plan, we will have into account those pieces that you want to include in the design.
This can also save you money because you are integrating those existing items into your design, and therefore you won’t need to buy new ones.
We can look at the pieces that you already own and figure out what it is that you can keep or edit. The designer has the professional training to give you the great look you are searching for. We know how to reutilise your items, matching them with new pieces and cohesively integrating everything into the new design.
