The choice between going the do-it-yourself route and hiring outside experts can be a tough one in some settings, and a good example is the realm of home furnishings. Many who are making simple, low-impact upgrades to their home furnishing setup won’t require any kind of specialized interior design services; on the flip side, those engaging in larger, more detailed projects may find great value from such assistance.
At Guild Hall Home Furnishings, we’re here to help no matter what. Not only do we offer a wide range of fine home furnishings and home decor, we’re also happy to provide interior design services for all your potential needs. What are some of the major areas of value interior designers add to this process, and why might you consider one? This two-part blog series will go over several concepts.
Personalized Advice and Recommendations
You want your space to reflect your personality, and an interior designer will be able to take all of your specific wants and needs into account. Whether you have a clear idea of what you’re looking for or need some help fleshing out your vision, these professionals can offer highly personalized advice and recommendations.
This is in contrast to the limited perspective you might get from, say, visiting a home furnishing store without any specific plan in mind. While retail staff can be helpful, they likely won’t know you or your design goals as well as someone you’ve hired for the express purpose of helping with this project.
Fantastic Product Knowledge
Another major value of an interior designer is the wealth of product knowledge they bring to the table. These professionals keep up with all the latest trends in home furnishings and have likely had experience with a wide variety of products over the course of their careers.
This means they can help you find just the right piece for your needs, whether it’s a couch that’s the perfect size and shape for your living room or a dining table that fits both your aesthetic preferences and budget. Trying to do this kind of research on your own can be time-consuming and frustrating, but working with an interior designer takes all the guesswork out of it.
For instance, let’s say you’re on the hunt for a new coffee table. An interior designer will be able to tell you about all the different materials it could be made from, the pros and cons of each, and which would work best in your particular space. They might also have some great recommendations for specific products that fit what you’re looking for.
