What does an interior designer do?
A good design professional such as myself will hone your style down to its very essence and be able to choose a functional layout that feels natural to you. I can be involved as much or as little as you desire. Many clients who hire me — particularly those who are remodeling — have a good sense of how the room should look and what products they should use. Often clients will insist that I use the products already present in the house. Other times a designer will need to start from scratch — especially if this is a newly purchased or just-built home. I will need to figure out exactly what you need, which includes organizing rooms, laying tile, picking carpeting and colors, and finding furniture to complement it all. Sometimes that means I will have to recruit help from other San Antonio, TX home professionals to help create the perfect look for your renovation.
Ask yourself what you want your space to become and what it will be used for. Figure out the extent of what you need help with, what your must-haves are and what your budget is. Interior design services can add up fast, so be up front with a potential design firm or individual from the beginning. Also, pick a home decorator that fits your style. Browse through the portfolios of different home design firms and decide if you would live in those houses. Just because you like something doesn’t mean you could live in it. There's a big difference
