If you are unsure about your own style or how you want your home to look, or if you only know what you like (or don’t like) when you see it, it may be worthwhile using an interior designer.
An interior designer can work with you to develop your own style and then give you inspiration and ideas about the design direction for a room. Designers are talented at taking what is going on in your mind and transforming it into a beautiful and unified room design that you not only like the look of, but also feels like you.
If you want your completed design project to feel cohesive, stylish, interesting and represent who you are, then an interior designer can help you achieve this. They have the design skills and knowledge about materials and techniques that can not only give your project that special feel, but can save you money in the long run. They can avoid you making design blunders or questionable impulse buys and can advise on the re-use of items you already have. For example, sanding and polishing an existing floor or re-upholstering furniture to transform it.

Interior design is a misunderstood profession that is frequently lumped in with interior stylists, interior decorators, and soft furnishings suppliers. While they frequently include those services, interior designers do so much more.
They collaborate closely with architects, building contractors, and suppliers to ensure that a space is designed to the client’s specifications while also meeting current health and safety regulations. While they focus on the creative aspects of a project, such as paint colours, mood boards, space planning, and product sourcing, they also focus on the more analytical aspects of a renovation, such as budget breakdowns, detailed technical drawings, feasibility studies, and project coordination.
They are best positioned when they work collaboratively as part of a larger team of contractors and architects to ensure that all aspects of the building and interior are planned cohesively. Their role is frequently integrated into the entire project timeline, from the first fix design stages of planning lighting and socket locations to ensure they fit with desired furniture layouts, all the way through to supplier coordination and installation oversight.
We recommend bringing in an interior designer as soon as possible before the project begins. This ensures that we have enough time together to cover all bases thoroughly and avoids costly mistakes. Interior designers are frequently mistaken for only specialising in surface-level design (things like furniture and colour schemes). We also provide space planning and room layouts, which have an impact on the lighting, electrical, and plumbing positions and must be planned prior to the first fix stage of a renovation.
