Professional Help

Not all designers charge an arm and a leg for their services. Designers know where and how to get the best bargains. They also know who to go to, to get furniture refinished inexpensively so investing in a professional designer may be a wise move especially if home projects are new to you.

Designers work with clients in numerous ways.
  • Hourly or daily fee

  • Project fee

  • For a cut of the mark up designer can buy furniture at "to the trade" prices and resell them to you at a mark up or profit.

  • Word of mouth is commonly the best way to find a good designer. You can also check your yellow pages or visit the Internet interior designer directory.

You should also meet with at least two good designer or architects for two very good reasons. You will want to see if they can give you a plan that meets your needs and wants. If they cannot understand what you are looking for why should hire them.

You need to determine if you are compatible. You need to be able to get along with the designer so that both of you can list and discuss suggestions and changes without becoming agitated.
