How to Know When It’s Time To Start Working with A Designer

Making the decision to invest in interior design services is big, and it can sometimes be hard to know when is the right time to start exploring a partnership. Don’t stress! Below I’ve listed some ways you can know when it’s time to start working with a designer!

1.) You know you want to make a design change in your home, but you’re not sure where or how to start. 

Maybe you can spend hours getting lost in furniture and decor stores, but you aren’t sure how to implement any of those items into your own space. Or perhaps your Pinterest boards are full of beautiful ideas, but you’re not sure how to turn all that inspiration into action. Working with a designer will help you narrow down the options and determine the best way to move forward to bring your unique vision to life on a timeline that works for you!

2. ) You probably could do it yourself, but you don’t have the time or energy.

Maybe the idea of  putting together a cohesive design for your home doesn’t stress you out, but you simply don’t have the time or mental energy to devote to it right now. That’s okay too! You can partner with your designer and share how you want your home to feel, and let them take over from there.

3.) You are ready to invest in design and product to create the space of your dreams. 

We recognize that working with a designer can be a significant investment, and truthfully, it is not an area where you want to cut corners.  When it’s time to work with a designer, you will have a good idea of where you want to splurge versus where you would like to be conservative. Your designer can work with you to ensure you get the home of your dreams within the budget you want.
