When we live in beautiful, well-lit, functional spaces, we have stronger immune systems, more peace, more happiness, and less stress. Cultivating tranquility, ease, well-being and a reflective sense of self through the design of your home can be truly transformative.
In order to curate a well designed home you have options. You can hire a big name interior design firm (if they’ll take on a furnishing-only job), a smaller Interior Designer or Interior Decorator, or you can do it yourself using a combination of online and high street stores. It’s important to engage the services of professionals with expertise in the area you need.
Option 1: Big Name Interior Design Firm
Big name interior design firms are usually engaged during the design process of an architectural build to design the interior space. This includes internal wall layout, joinery, finishes, fixtures, and fittings. These firms are less likely to take on pure furnishing jobs as it is not their core business.
Option 2: Independent Interior Designer
Independent interior designers are also engaged during the design process of an architectural build to design the interior space. They may take on pure furnishing jobs if they are looking for more work. These professionals usually charge on an hourly basis, making it difficult to keep a lid on the cost of their services.
Option 3: Interior Decorator
If you only need aesthetic help, an interior decorator or home decor stylist might be the solution you need. This professional helps with selecting a style, choosing wallpaper, paint, and furnishings, picking window treatments, and choosing lighting and accessories. Structural work is usually complete before an interior decorator comes on board. They also charge on an hourly basis, making it difficult to keep a lid on the cost of their services.
Option 4: Do-It-Yourself
Furnishing your home yourself requires a lot of time, effort, and perhaps some trial and error. This option requires proper budgeting and planning, as well as the ability to devise an appropriate design scheme for your home, plan your layout, manage your budget, and visualize how the pieces will work together. You will also need to know where to go to find the most suitable pieces, which can take a lot of time.
