HOW TO CHOOSE AN INTERIOR DESIGNER
Not everyone who wants or needs an interior designer in the Tampa Bay area will immediately connect with one.
There is often a ‘build up’ period as a potential client begins the process of understanding what benefits hiring a designer might have for their home. We find that our clients often do quite a bit of research before a phone call or email is made.
These clients will visit websites of local designers. They’ll certainly speak with other friends and family who have used a design consultant. And they’ll visit local shops and showrooms to speak with people there about their suggestions for hiring a designer.
This process can take weeks or months. Clients want to establish an understanding of how a ‘client / designer’ partnership works and what the costs might be (or what a budget could be).
Also, they want to establish a trust and comfort level with a potential designer.
While there is a lot that goes into that decision making process, the time and effort that is involved is invaluable. Being comfortable with the process before hiring an interior designer and starting the work generally makes the entire process smoother and more successful so that the client ends up with the design they desire.
