First and foremost, Interior Design is much more than decorating. It goes far beyond selecting colors and finish materials. Interior Design covers many core aspects of the remodeling process and thus can be a game changer for many home owners.
Here are some of the reasons why you might consider having an Interior Designer on your remodeling project:

An experienced and talented designer will carefully listen to your needs and access your existing layout and home structure. He or she will then to come up with creative solutions to your problems and offer some new options to achieve your goals and optimize your space. Often times, those will be the options you might not even consider before.
Functionality, smooth traffic flow, better layout, and enhanced aesthetics are the main focus of every Interior Designer.

Relieve unnecessary stress associated with remodeling
Contractors will be asking you many questions to follow your guidance. If you are dealing with the contractors yourself, you will be forced to make important decisions about things you are not well informed. Having someone professional in such discussions will be very helpful. Interior Designer is the advocate for your best interests.

Besides, your Interior Designer is not affiliated with any specific store or showroom and is not trying to sell you any specific product. He or she is focused on your project, has your best interests at heart, and acts as your personal consultant from start to finish of the renovation.
Save time and money
