Have you finally decided to refresh your home? Maybe you’ve just moved into your new apartment or your new house, but you don’t have the time nor the energy, or perhaps you just don’t know where to start? Your easiest solution would probably be to seek professional help. But how do you pick the right one?
Define Your Renovation Needs
To make the right choice and find a the right professional to renovate or redecorate your home, you must first assess your short and medium-term needs. Do you want to refresh your décor, reorganize your space or do you need structural changes like removing a wall, ceiling, windows etc.? The answer will help you determine the type of professional assistance you need.
Choosing Between an Interior Decorator or an Interior Designer
Before you start searching for ideas on the Internet or elsewhere, you must decide if you need the help of an Interior Decorator or an Interior Designer. For lots of people, the difference between the two is unclear.
An Interior Decorator will help you spruce up a room by replacing or moving your furniture, accessorizing or choosing new wallpaper or paint colour. They can also help optimize the use of space.
An Interior Designer is professionally trained to make radical changes to your home while also being able to help with decoration. Major changes require a more substantial budget, but an Interior Designer, just like an architect, can design plans, usually in 3D, allowing to better visualize the project. They also have some expertise in project management and will be able to plan the renovations with all workers involved.
Now you know! You just need to figure out the extent of your renovation or decoration project and call the professional that will best suit your needs.
