What Does A Residential Interior Design Do?
We broke down a quick step by step answer to give you the full scoop.
1. They help give guidance and lead you through different design processes
We like to think of interior designers as your guide on your new epic adventure. This can be any type of adventure or project, from remodeling, building something new, or rearranging and redecorating a space.
An interior designer will tell you where you need to start and what steps you’ll take together as a team to get the finished product. They are trained in multiple areas to educate you on different decisions that will need to be made and why you’ll go through the process in the order that you do.
2. They help to create a functional, livable space
Residential designers are not only thinking about style, they are also thinking with functionality in mind. Your main residential space is somewhere you use every single day, so they want to make sure that it fits your lifestyle needs.
Do you have a big family or have a lot of friends? They’ll think about making enough seating and a large enough area for all to gather.
You have kids that can easily destroy nice things? They’re going to think about washable fabrics and easily cleanable surfaces for tables and chairs. You get the idea?
3. They introduce you to new concepts, and help bring your style ideas together
(This is the extra fun part — residential designers are going to help you piece together the style you’re going for. They’ll create a look you love and that’s unique to you. The same way you could go to a clothing stylist and they may suggest a different cut blouse or different color of shoes, they’ll help bring in new ideas as well that will compliment your overall vision for what you want.
And if you don’t know what style you want? They are the best place to start in giving you guidance and direction to find it.
You can rest easy that your designer will take good care of you. This is what they do on a day to day basis, so they know what needs to be done, and how to best execute your project.
