5 Reasons why you should hire an Interior Designer

Categories: Interiors

Creating a home that fully reflects your personality and lifestyle isn’t the easiest thing to do. That’s why at Bespoke Living AIC we have an integrated Interior Design service dedicated to providing beautiful interior schemes. Many of our clients have big ambitions for the architecture of their home but aren’t able to execute the interior to it’s full potential, often resulting in a home that they aren’t completely satisfied with.

We’ve compiled our top reasons why you should consider including our interior design service within your design package.

Reason #1 to Hire an Interior Designer: You’re going to save money

Ever bought a piece of furniture that looked great in the shop, but was too big once you got it home? Or painted three or four times trying to find the perfect colour palette but something still wasn’t right? It may seem like an oxymoron because you’re going to have to pay the additional designer’s fee, but the fact is that hiring a designer can help you avoid costly mistakes and in the long run will help you make design decisions that will increase the value of your home.

If you’re on a tight budget, our interior designer is going to know how to get the best value out of what you can spend. We are used to sticking to a budget and will provide an item specification document so that you can understand where every penny is going.

We have developed a strong relationship with our trusted suppliers and have trade accounts meaning we are entitled to exclusive trade discounts. If you decide to procure your items through us, we are able to pass on some of this discount, therefore resulting in you saving money on the majority of the furniture, fixture and fittings for your project.

Reason #2 to Hire an Interior Designer: You’re going to save time

We thought it would make sense to start off with the two things most people wish they could have more of: time and money. Just like hiring a designer will benefit you financially, we will also save you on time. As an interior designer already has a trained sense of what needs to be done and when it needs to be done, they’ll be able to anticipate any obstacles that may come up throughout the design and construction process. We will be on hand throughout your project, ensuring that every detail is meticulously planned and every item is ordered in time to prevent delays along the line.

Reason #3 to Hire an Interior Designer: You’ll have a point of contact

We know how to communicate effectively when it comes to liaising with contractors and tradespeople. This is crucial in managing time and money. Creating a strong flow between the interior design and the lighting, furnishing, and architecture is absolutely key to a well balanced scheme.

For example, planning socket and light switch placement is going to depend on the furniture placement and space planning. At Bespoke Living, we will explore the viable options of furniture layouts and discuss your preferences before creating the M&E plans to ensure that these issues are addressed prior to construction commencing on site.

Reason #4 to Hire an Interior Designer: You’re going to have better resources and contacts

Everyone knows it’s difficult to find good contacts, but we have a number of reliable connections that you may need throughout your home renovation project. If you are based in South Wales, we have our very own construction team that has previously worked on a variety of high end residential projects. Alternatively, if you live elsewhere in the UK, we may be able to suggest some contractors that we have worked with on previous projects. We also suggest asking neighbours and friends and family if they’ve had positive experience with a contractor for a referral.

We are fully qualified with extensive interior design experience across the residential sector and we understand how to create a functional space that is also stylish. Over the years we have developed great relationships with our suppliers and have access to a vast array of products and fabrics that are not available to the general public. With these resources, we will create a space for you that looks cohesive and unique (instead of the standard “off the shelf” items that everyone has in their home).

During our previous projects, we have worked with many brands and have developed special relationships with Our Partners. We can source a variety of furniture, fabric, and materials that are trade-only and not available to the public.

Guests notice a well-designed home. Try to do it by yourself, and you’re faced with juggling the many elements that go into designing, it can become overwhelming and force you to make poor design choices. We are used to dealing with these issues and can ensure that once we have completed the design, not only will your home look beautiful and cohesive, but it’ll be well thought out and highly functional.

Reason #5 to Hire an Interior Designer: You’re going to achieve that wow factor

You are completely one of a kind – and that’s how your home ought to be, too. At Bespoke Living, we are trained to think creatively and spatially, envisioning an overall picture of the interior space that clients often cannot. Thinking outside of the box when it comes to home decoration is what designers do on a regular basis. Not only will you get a great design direction, but you’ll also have several options for all aspects of your interior, from the perfect lighting and furniture placement to fabric choices and colour palette options. Our Interior Design team will create an interior that is custom designed to suit you and your lifestyle, resulting in a truly special space to call home.
