Why Hire a Designer?

Interior designers are passionate about improving their clients' lives through style, comfort and concepts that are unique to the individual.  They are experts at balancing design excellence (pattern, color, texture) with functionality (space planning, organization, technical/performance requirements).  The knowledge of a professional interior designer can bring your vision to life and provide extraordinary results.
-Schumacher
An interior designer has more to offer than most people actually realize.  With years of experience in the field and a design education background, a trained professional has all of the necessary tools to make a project come together.  A designer can assist in the selection of finishes including, flooring, paint, wallcoverings, doors and hardware, plumbing fixtures and lighting; while stretching a clients budget and ensuring that the project will have a cohesive overall look and feel.  The selection of these more permanent items by a designer can save a  client from making a costly mistake themselves.
An interior designer can offer a master plan which helps guide the project from start to finish.  Keeping all parties involved on track and organized.  A designer offers beautiful and creative solutions for everyday living.  With a wealth of resources for just about any product you can imagine, an interior designer can offer a significant discount from retail for all of their products.  Most buyers assume spending their own time "shopping around" will save money, but in the long run letting a designer do the work saves both time and money.
