5 Ways an Interior Decorator Will Actually Save You Money
From questionable artists swishing around fabric swatches to old ladies making your home look rigid and staged, there have always been certain myths about interior designers that have made the rounds amongst homeowners.
One of the biggest misconceptions about interior design is that it costs too much – and with South Africa being in its second recession in the last 9 years, renovating your home might not seem like the best investment.
That’s actually not the case at all. Hiring an interior decorator can actually be a way to save you money, time and a whole lot of stress! So, here are five ways that hiring a decorator may be one of the best decisions you ever make!
- We help you avoid costly mistakes
- We know how to budget
- Insider pricing is our middle game
- We know how to recycle
- We add value to your property
The design world is rife with stories of well-meaning people who decided to “save” money and forgo professional design advice but ended up with a costly disaster instead. Getting things done correctly from the start will not only save you time but will also save you big bucks! It means that you won’t waste money on materials and supplies that could have gone towards something much, much better from the start!
Planning and budgeting to redecorate your home can be stressful. It’s something that is sometimes better left to a professional. Interior decorators have specialised tools and systems to help them make the most of a variety of budgets and time frames, keeping unexpected costs at bay. We also keep you on a budget because we have resources for every type of finish, fixture, and furnishing. We have the know how to mix high- and low-end products to make your space beautiful while keeping your wallet intact.
Professional interior decorators have developed many contacts over the years, and this can often mean discounted rates for you. Designers work with contractors for just about everything, from backyards to tile work and cabinetry. Since they work together frequently, they often get better rates than a new customer. Apart from saving you money, we also know which contractors are best suited to your needs, and when they are available to oversee your project.
Hiring an interior decorator doesn’t mean that you have to purchase all new pieces for your home. Interior decorators are skilled at repurposing and reusing the things that you already have. Rather than redo all of your cabinets, buy a brand new dining room set, or pull out your flooring, designers can help you come up with affordable solutions that will bring a fresh look utilising some of the things you already have.
Perhaps the most important reason you should be hiring an interior decorator is that our expertise is an investment in your property. While we design spaces as unique and individual as the people who live in them, we also know that when you thoughtfully design a space and capitalise on the best of your home’s architecture, character, and style, it cannot help but raise the market value.
