This is the first of four posts about why you need an interior designer. I want to dispel the myths that Interior Design is only for those with celebrity status. If you are planning a home refurbishment or renovation project then using an interior designer is a great investment and will take a lot of the stress out if your project.

“Where do I start?” There are thousands of choices and what feels like endless decisions to make when starting an interior project. There are over 500 shades of grey and that’s just one hue. A single fabric house can have over 30,000 different fabrics to choose from. Then there’s a mind-boggling choice of styles and layout options. The overwhelming number of possibilities can be bewildering – this may result in inertia and we may decide not to start the project at all.

We are so familiar with our surroundings that we can’t see the wood for the trees. We are so used to our spaces that it can be very difficult to imagine them in any other way. Often our ideas and creativity are stifled by what we know and what is familiar. An interior designer will bring fresh perspective and creativity to your project. They have no preconceptions or self-imposed limitations about what can be achieved in the space.

Design choices are infinite. A professional designer will guide you the myriad of options – they will take you by the hand and show you the way. An interior designer will apply their understanding of the elements and principles of design and work with the age and character of your property to achieve an outstanding result. In addition by getting to know you personally you will get the inspiring space you always wanted. An interior designer will help you overcome the bewilderment and finally come home to the space you’ve always dreamed about.
