DESIGNERS CAN BRING CREATIVE IDEAS TO THE ENTIRE PROJECT For instance, many home renovations include more than one bathroom to overhaul and as a designer I can suggest the same tile for a couple of bathrooms to save on cost. I then have them installed in a different pattern for each bathroom to create two different looks. Same thing goes for hardware, faucets, vanities, lighting etc.
TOO MANY CHOICES! Most people find it difficult and overwhelming to select backsplash tile for their kitchen. There are hundreds of tiles to select from and many ways to install them. In an average reno project, you may have to select between fifty to one hundred products and this process can be time consuming. Designers take that off your plate and select everything for your home and bring it right to you.
DESIGNERS HAVE A WEALTH OF PRODUCTS AVAILABLE TO THEM They also have resources that the general public may not have access to. They work in the world of renovation and building on a daily basis and can foresee costly mistakes. They help you select the right product for each application and look for ways to stretch your budget.
STRESS DOING A RENOVATION, AS A COUPLE OR ON YOUR OWN Let’s face it, it’s a big deal to renovate your home. I have seen homeowners double the size of their home and the everyday stress of a renovation can take a toll if you don’t have a designer helping to ease the burden. Having a designer give you advice on where to spend and save money will make the process easier. Some couples also find it very difficult to agree on products and design choices and an unbiased opinion can help offer a fresh perspective. – Jacklynn Little, www.jacklynnlittleinteriors.com
