Do you feel that your house needs change? You cannot move out and do not want, but you still would like to improve your living space. An interior decorator or interior designer can help you. We will advise you how to choose between them.
Are you thinking about transforming your housing? You go through your home and break your head over how to create a new look? You may want to consider the services of the interior designer or decorator. However, you can try and improve living space on your own. But you run the risk that you will not like the end result, eg. a bona fide buying of an expensive piece of furniture, can often results in situation that it will not fit the rest of the interior. If you want perfect results, choose a specialist. There are more than enough on the market. However, it is difficult to find the right one that suits you.
Do you know what you want?
Choose an expert according to your actual needs. If you are thinking about a major transformation of your housing and at the same time needs are changing such as you expect addition to the family or your children have long grown up, select a residential designer. He will be able to give your new space utilization and simultaneously deal with all the possible problems that the modification entails. But you must count on a greater investment. Probably is waiting for you the purchase of furniture, accessories, new plants, possibly painting the walls and other treatment. Residential designer has full knowledge and is able to create not only attractive, but also functional space that can meet your needs. In a well-designed space, people feel very comfortable.
On the contrary residential decorator does not perform major changes and generally works with a limited budget. But it is not a rule, the interior can be completely transformed cheaply and conversely also added for the big money. If you want to make your home look better, but do not intend to carry out fundamental changes, invite a residential decorator. Residential decorator only tunes interior, consolidates his style and he breathes new life. The result is a nice and pleasant space. Residential decorator does not address the issues of interior features. His knowledge is limited and not nearly as complex as a residential designer.
An example might be purchase of a new carpet. Residential decorator will be interested in its color, pattern, shape and style, simply aesthetic properties. On the contrary, residential designer will look much more extensively on the carpet. Obviously going to think about its appearance, but in addition will address how the carpet is maintained, if desired handle stress and how to dampen noise and vibration. Designer correctly also considering flammability of the materials or about whether it is suitable for allergic and does not carry static electricity.
Who is who?
Residential decorator and designer creates spaces that meet aesthetic requirements. Both can work in design studios as well as independent, yet their work is different. Residential decorator specializing in interior details and understands residential fabrics, can find the ideal curtains. They can also advise you on home accessories. But decorator is not able to fundamentally transform the interior or modify it according to the specific needs eg. for a handicapped person.
On the contrary residential designer can create from the utterly hopeless and desperate space a comfortable place where you feel good and you will not be afraid to use it. The designer is able to customize the space according to individual needs and able to adapt to their requirements. He can propose kindergarten as well as dental office, so that they are truly functional, while nice to look at. Designer’s work is therefore more complex and sophisticated.
How to find the right one?
In the US, it is often necessary for this job a license, which is granted based on completed education in the field of interior design.
At first glance, it is not possible to discern a genuine specialist from the enthusiastic amateur. Everyone can have his design studio and create interiors. Choosing a quality specialist is not at all simple. There are many designers and decorators on the market, who have expertise in the field of interior design obtained from universities, private schools and academies. Equally, there are people who are who consider themselves good for designers after one weekend course. When choosing a designer, however, do not consider only his diplomas and certificates. Paradoxically, even a person who has less theoretical knowledge, can create a great space. Crucial is an experience, a good ability to focus on market and fashion trends and the ability to communicate with the customer.
If you’re thinking about changing your interior, you should dedicate to the selection of designer or decorator some time. Let them show the results of their work and ask for references. Under no circumstances should you attempt to decide rashly, and even if you get when “unique” offer that will expire tomorrow. You are changing your living space, so you need someone who will fully concentrate and listen to you. You can directly delete design studios which paint everything from the desk and their staff do not consider important to talk to you about your imagination. If they need room size and budget, forget about them. The result of their work may be an interior that is nice to look at, but inconvenient to your needs.
Follow your feelings and intuition. If you feel that you understand the specialist and see that this designer or decorator listens to you, you are at the right address. In any case, they should not force their ideas and convince you, that you simply must have what is currently “in”, even if you do not like it. You are hiring a designer or decorator to give life to your ideas and create space for your needs.
