One question often asked is why do I need an Interior Designer?

The simple answer is that hiring an Interior Designer can be a very wise decision as they share a purpose for everyone. Whether you are planning to redesign one small room in your home or want to redecorate the entire house. Perhaps you have no idea where to begin and just need some help in putting your ideas together or when you simply do not have the time to put schemes together due to busy day to day schedules.

An Interior Designer can and will save you money, which admittedly sounds ridiculous when you consider the additional fees that will be incurred for hiring a designer. However, when you consider that they will help you avoid mistakes which could be costly, will give you a broader sense of what is available and put schemes together that you may not have thought of or put another way, take you a little out of your comfort zone and offers an extra set of experienced eyes, that are trained to see and notice things that you may not.

A designer can keep you on budget and save you time and effort.  They know where to go for resources and for anything and everything related to your home. Just think of how much time this will save in researching products, brands and prices? we have all the information to hand and if not we will do the research for you.

Additionally, there are a wide range of products available to designers that are not available to the general public, such as curtain fabric, upholstery fabric, wallpaper, rugs and poles etc. which means the choices and the options available to you are far more vast and by culminating these resources a designer can help to make your space look more collected and pulled together.

In Interior Design business for over 20 years means making many contacts in the building trade; such as electricians, plumbers, tilers, painters and cabinet makers, all of whom do a fantastic work time and time again for clients and they are readily available and save the headache of trying to find a reliable contractor.
