Interior design is a creative field which encompasses all aspects of the design process. Most people assume you pick wall colors and accessories for a living, this could not be further from the truth. A designer has to be knowledgeable in all aspects, from building codes (yay to living in FL), to electricity, space planning, all this while maintaining a healthy and aesthetically pleasing space for a client. A designer also serves as a consultant when you’d like to just make small renovations yourself and need a little direction. Hiring a designer can not only provide you with the peace of mind of working with a professional team, prevent you from making costly mistakes, and raise the market value of your home should you choose to sell. In any creative field you will find professionals who have a niche, a specific client they attract, naturally you should hire someone according to your vision for the space.
