While most homeowners will hire a professional roofer or plumber, when it comes to interior decorating many people think, "Why should I spend money when I can do it?" The answer is that an interior decorator can actually save you money, not to mention time. Professional painters and decorators are equipped with the right set of tools and knowledge that an average does not usually have. Also, redecorating the house can be a very laborious job that would require extra manpower and tools. Here are the reasons why you should hire a professional interior decorator.
Interior decorators help you put your creative stamp in your home by dealing with decorating, furnishing, and space issues, often in unique ways. Choose an interior decorator whose projects are not only appealing, but have proven practical to build and live in as well. Interior decorating is not just "having an eye" for color or recognizing quality furniture. It is an extensive discipline that encompasses many specialized areas of expertise, including colors and how they relate to one another, patterns and how they relate to one another, human perception of space, depth, and texture, compatibility of furniture styles, effective space utilization, specialized painting and stenciling techniques and wide variety of possible window treatments and much more. Interior decorators also have spent years finding the best professional interior design resources. A professional painter and decorator have already dug up the best sources for everything from upholstery services to marble pedestals. Interior decorators can save you money in furnishings and other home decorating supplies. Depending on the scope of your project, you may be able to get some or all of an interior decorator's services for free. While it varies from decorator to decorator and job to job, interior decorators usually get most of their compensation through commissions or discounts they negotiate with vendors of products and services. In other words, most of their compensation comes from suppliers, not from you. In many cases, it is also necessary for the decorator to charge a consulting fee. This is usually assessed on an hourly basis or as a flat fee. Always ask about charges and payments before hiring a painter or decorator.
