7 Reasons Why You Should Hire an Interior Designer

At Studio Elle Marie, we believe your home design project is A Simply Beautiful Start - a place where you will make memories for years to come, a place that will be a reflection of who you are.

There's a false stigma that hiring an Interior Designer is only for the elite, but times are changing and Interior Designers are accessible for all! Designers are a sort of jack-of-all trades as they space plan, select finishes, design cabinetry, and liaise with contractors!

Keep reading as we break down the top 7 reasons to hire an Interior Designer!

1. You're going to save money.

You're paying for an additional service, yet you're saving money? Hear us out!

Hiring a designer can help you avoid costly mistakes! Have you ever purchased a piece of furniture that looked so good in the store, but was too big once you got it home? Ever had to choose 3 different paint colors because none of them were just right? Your designer will help you plan and coordinate every step of the design process which will help in minimizing the chances of any errors along the way.

2. You're going to save time (and stress!).

You probably have a job, or a family, or just a million things already on your to-do list so your home renovation just continues to get pushed to the bottom of that list. When you finally get to that item on your to-do, you barely have time in the day to sit down and figure out exactly what it is that you want for your home project, let alone time to go and get lost in a showroom filled with a million samples.

A designer will do all the heavy lifting for you, all while collaborating with you!

3. We help you stick to your budget.

Ahh, the budget! A designer will help you understand how far your budget can go. Sometimes, it is better to choose one space instead of spreading your budget thin throughout several spaces - leaving them all looking slightly incomplete. A designer will help you decide the best move for you.

They will design within the constraints of your budget, but will be sure to leave you with a space you've only dreamed of! Designers can also source materials at better prices, allowing your budget to stretch even further!

4. We increase your property's value.

A designer is a trained professional, they will create harmony between all spaces, exterior and interior which in turn, will add a significant appeal to your home.

Specifically here at Studio Elle Marie, why? Our Lead Designer, Michelle, is also a real estate agent! She knows the ins and outs of the market which she uses as she designs a home.

5. A trained eye.

With a professional, no detail is overlooked. A designer knows what to look for and will notice things that others are guaranteed to miss. A designer knows that a cohesive home is made of small vignettes throughout.

6. We know how to liaise.

Strong communication between all professionals during a home project is crucial. Architects, contractors, and landscaping architects may not be on the same page so it is important to have a good Interior Designer who can liaise between all to ensure everything is moving forward smoothly and everyone is on the same page. This will help prevent any mistakes moving forward, saving time and money.

7. Your dreams will come to life.

Everyone has a picture in their head and many, many pinned images on Pinterest of how they want their home to look, but translating those ideas into your space can be quite daunting. Sometimes it may not even be the actual design that you like, but the feeling it creates. Wait, what?! Now you have to create a feeling?!

Through conversations and consultations, a designer will be able to understand what it is you like about these spaces and how to create that into your home by designing a space that is livable and comfortable for your family.

Here at Studio Elle Marie, our services are tailored to our clients. Inquire here for your upcoming project! If our services listed here just don't seem right or you're confused on which is right for your upcoming project, send us an e-mail and we will gladly help you decide what's best!
