5 Misconceptions every homeowner has about hiring an interior designer

Your home is your sanctuary – a place of retreat at the end of a long day. But what if your space isn’t making your life easier?
Just as a therapist can help organize head space, an interior designer can make your home work for you.
1. Designers are too expensive.
“We always ask about a customer’s budget and find out what they’re comfortable spending before we even get started,”
Our design team does everything it can to work within a customer’s desired price range, offering design payment plans and budgeting assistance. “Some opt to do design updates in phases, over the course of six months or a year. Others make changes one room at a time. Either way, we make sure it’s affordable and worth every rupee.
2. A designer won’t respect my opinion or ideas.
A good designer knows her stuff, but she also knows her limits. “I always say ‘It’s not about me, I don’t have to live here,’”
Interior designers use universal layout and design principles to guide homeowners in making the best use of space. Designers often use existing pieces in a home to complement a new layout and fresh furniture. “Some pieces are a part of who you are, and it’s important to honor and showcase them, whether it’s your grandma’s cedar chest or your mother’s rocking chair!
3. Retail design services are limited and amateur.
When you hire a designer, you want to get more than 30 minutes and two or three abstract sentences about Feng Shui.
“We have the resources and connections to offer full-fledged design services,”. “We can talk window treatments, flooring, anything our customer needs. We’re there from start to finish.”

4. I don’t need a designer to do what I can do myself. I’ve watched HGTV!
From Beverly Hills dream home scouting trips to urban loft renovations, design reality shows are a whirlwind of reclaimed barn wood and trendy color palettes.
“It’s very difficult for a consumer to take lessons from TV shows and apply them to their own space, but I do this every day; it’s my profession and I live in this world, “A designer can take your dreams and ideas and turn them into reality, with less frustration than if you attempted to do it all yourself.

5. Design is just for show – it’s unnecessary.
Design might not save your life, but it might save your spirit – and isn’t that the same thing, really?
“A home is so much more than a house, and the way it’s designed matters,”
“No one wants to come home to a place that makes them unhappy or doesn’t make sense.”
 “Function is a huge part – it can bring comfort and peace to a space that a family can enjoy using. When people feel comfortable in their home, it can change everything about the flow of life.”

An Idea

Hello all,

This is my first blog and am already excited to write here !!

Being an interior designer I have always wanted a unique design an interesting concept for my  interiors to look attractive and for that I play with different colors, textures and lighting to define a particular space.

I have realized a GREAT design should be classic and timeless.
Because a timeless interior, never goes out of style.

 I think a home should be emotive, the place where you retreat to recharge, it should always look chic. One must also not overdo trends, there can be too much of a good thing. Your home is there to say how happy you are and comfortable you are, not how much money you have.
