Reasons to Consider a Professional Designer for Your On Your Auckland Home's Next Interior Decorating Project

When one is considering a new look for an existing room the question always arises;

"Do I need to hire an interior designer for my new project?"

This depends on you and on your available free time, patience, creativity (or lack thereof), resources available to you (or not aware of), your interest in making all the decisions and much more...

Here are some guidelines to help you decide if you should hire a professional.

You might want to hire a professional interior designer if...

  • You have little or no free time to coordinate and shop for home decor items.
  • You feel completely overwhelmed by the number of choices available.
  • You need help with space planning, lighting design, kitchen layouts, or bathroom renovations.
  • You want someone else to deal with the hassles of ordering, shipping, coordinating, and installing.
  • You want to have quality work done but don't have your own list of reliable workmen, installers, and resources.
  • You've tried to decorate your home and have purchased a few nice items, but really need help pulling it all together.
  • You want a cohesive colour scheme and design that can be carried throughout your home.
  • You think you have pretty good taste, but would like to move up a few notches in style.
  • You've torn out photos of rooms you like, but are unsure of how to coordinate some of the elements.
  • You and your partner can't seem to agree on anything for your home.
  • You've found a gorgeous sofa in a decorating magazine, but it's available "to the trade" only.
  • You want some custom designed furniture, cabinetry, fireplaces, built-ins, murals, faux finishes, etc and don't know where to start looking to help you with this all.
  • You don't know what new products, fabrics, or appliances are available that might be perfect for your house.
  • Your bonus finally came through and you want something new, something different, something fabulous.
  • You have a new job and now need to upgrade your home for corporate entertaining.
  • Your home is from a particular period, has a specific style, or has an unusual design and you need assistance in selecting appropriate furnishings.
  • You're tired of buying things 'here and there' without an overall plan.
  • You're very creative but don't know where to start with your current decorating project.
  • You'd like more choices in fabrics, flooring, and furniture than are available in local stores.
  • You've never seen a source for the look you really want for your home.
  • You're planning to build a new home and are wondering if any interior specifications should be changed before work begins.
  • You've seen the "perfect" room in a decorator showhouse and would like to hire an interior designer to help you move that look into your place.
  • If any of the points above hit a cord, then it's a good decision to consider an Interior Designer to become involved with your Auckland home...
  • Interior decorators help you put your look and personality in your home by dealing with space, design, and furnishings. Ask for a portfolio of before and after previous designs. Choose an interior decorator whose projects are not only appealing to your taste, but have proven practical to build and live in as well. (This is where I find both my architecture background and having built (with my husband) our 532m2 house pays off)
  • If you're too busy to shop around, want to make some major changes or if you simply feel like you need some advice, then I encourage you to contact me, Kristina Cope - Home Interior Designer to help you get the results you're after. I am able to save you money by using my sources of discount furniture and accessories.
  • Interior decorating is not just "having an eye" for colour or recognising quality furniture. It is an extensive discipline that encompasses many specialised areas of expertise that take many years of experience to develop.
  • How Much Do Interior Designers and Decorators Charge?
  • While it varies from decorator to decorator, and job to job, decorators usually get most of their compensation through commissions or discounts they negotiate with vendors of products and services. In other words, most of their compensation comes from suppliers, not from you. In many cases, it is also necessary for the decorator to charge a consulting fee. This is usually assessed on an hourly basis or as a flat fee. Always ask about charges and payments before hiring a decorator.
  • Pick the Right Professional:
  • Whose past projects look good to you. Who listens well and designs around your wishes rather than their personal sense of style. Who has done jobs that are similar in scale and budget to yours. Who has experience working with any specialized materials or treatments you are considering for your project.
  • Interior decorators help you put your creative stamp in your home by dealing with decorating, furnishing, and space issues, often in unique ways.
  • Choose an interior decorator whose projects are not only appealing, but have proven practical to build and live in as well.
