In a world led by Google, it’s easy to start thinking we’re able to do anything ourselves. In some ways, this is empowering and true. We can search a favorite recipe, learn how to set up a new TV, or find tips on ways to actually clean a bathtub. In many ways, however, this can make us think we can figure anything out at any time in any area of life. Suddenly, instead of hiring a trusted repairman with years of training and experience, we opt to attempt to fix our own washing machine and wind up spending much more time, money, and frustration on the project than we needed to. Sound familiar?
Interior design is no exception to this new way of thinking. Beyond being able to do an instant search and get millions of results, there are videos to watch, Instagram influencers to follow, Pinterest boards to make, and so on. So why should you hire a professional interior designer? Step away from the paint chips, tile samples, and sledge hammer and Continue Reading to find out our top three reasons why.
If you’ve been thinking, “why should I hire a professional interior design firm?”, we’ve got the answers. Here are some helpful truths:
1. Interior designers have years of training, education, internships, and/or invaluable on-the-job experience, which serves as assurance to a job well done. Imagine if you needed a doctor regarding a medical issue. Would you google for ideas on how to do complex medical procedures, attempt to do them yourself, or make an appointment with a doctor? Hopefully, you’d make an appointment to work with a professional. While you probably have a friend or cousin who loves interior design and could potentially help with your room renovation, working with a professional is a completely different experience in all of the very best ways.
2. We have access to so much more. Whether it’s exclusive vendors, incredible products, or strong relationships with service-based businesses, we’ve got it. Not to mention having access to specialized software and design programs that totally trump a Pinterest board any day. To be honest, we have access to resources that you haven’t even dreamed about yet. In fact, HHC Living started from not being able to find what we needed for our sister company, a home construction company. By forming HHC Living, we’ve never had that problem again, and can ensure you won’t either.
3. We save you time, money, and lots of frustration. We value these things and know you do, too. Rest easy. Designers are here to help you, and you can trust the job will definitely get done. We’ll help you avoid mistakes, which can be very costly and sometimes dangerous. Home renovation shows might look like a total blast, but actually re-designing a room in your own home is a whole other ballgame. Leave the designing to us and enjoy your favorite HGTV shows in your newly designed living room.
Simply put, interior designers are professionals who do this for a living; we can offer you so much more than Google, your best friend, and a whole lot of coffee when it comes to creating the home of your dreams. We know you’ve got a ton on your plate with your job, family, and other responsibilities. This is our business and we take it seriously. This is our passion; it’s what we were made to do and love doing. We get excited about things like spanish revival design and outdoor furniture. We’ll meet you at your unique vision for your home and help bring it to life, and to be honest, we love every second of it. Now isn’t that a lot better than a grumpy cousin reluctantly attempting to put in new tile in your guest bathroom, which leads to an argument, and then realizing there’s paint in your hair? We think so.
