Whether you’re styling a new room, renovating an existing one, or simply hoping to bring some fresh style to your home, putting together an aesthetically pleasing space can be a challenge. That’s when some people will start to consider hiring a professional to help them out. If you’re looking at working with an interior designer, here are four questions to ask yourself first to make sure it’s the right decision for you.
What’s your style? Do you want a Scandinavian style? Industrial? Shabby chic? Mid-century modern? Your interior designer can provide guidance if you’re not sure what kind of look you’re going for, but knowing what styles you like and dislike can offer some important guidelines to make sure you end up with a finished product you’re happy with. Here are 10 interior design style quizzes to help you narrow down what you like!
What do you need help with? You can do it yourself or you can hire a full-service interior designer who will handle every step from concept to execution, but most people need something in between. Each designer has their strengths and specialties, so it’s important to know what skills you’ll need before choosing the designer. Check out these questions before you hire a designer to make sure they are the best fit for you and your project.
Are you ready to give input? It might sound appealing to hand off a room or a home to a designer and then come back to a finished space, but in actuality, you will be answering a lot of questions and making a lot of decisions. If you aren’t ready to be decisive, it might be better to DIY your decor, so you have as much time as you need to experiment.
What’s your budget? Interior designers, like most professionals, can tailor their offering to your budget — as long as you know what it is. Make sure you’re prepared with a number or range, because many designers ask for the amount in a lump sum. Need some tips on how to determine your budget? Here’s a guide that will walk you through how to maximize your decorating budget, and tips on how to stick to it.
If you’ve answered all these questions, you probably have a good idea not just of whether or not you should hire an interior designer, but of what sort of designer you should be looking for. No matter which direction you take, best of luck putting together a home or room with a look you love!
