When it comes to designing the interior of your home or office, hiring an interior designer can be an absolute game-changer. An experienced and skilled interior designer can transform any space into a beautiful and functional environment that perfectly reflects your personal taste and style. However, not all interior designers are created equal, and choosing the right one can be a daunting task. There are certain qualities and characteristics that you should look for in an interior designer to ensure that you receive the best possible service and results. In this blog post, we'll explore some of the key qualities to look for in an interior designer to help you make an informed decision and achieve the space of your dreams.


Well-connected


Our projects—whether residential or commercial— take a village to complete! There are so many facets and details to interior design, so it is important that your interior designer is well-connected and has established good relationships with their vendors so that you, the client can sit back, and enjoy the vision coming to life. It is also important that your designer knows multiple people in every category needed, for example: if your designer only knows one electrician, and that electrician gets booked out for months, or gets sick, it can delay the project for weeks or even months. It helps to have established relationships with several professionals in every facet of what we do.


Kind


Keeping track and managing all of the details of the design can be challenging when there are delays, or things don’t go exactly as planned. It is important that your designer has the ability to keep a level head through it all and is able to maintain relationships with their vendors and with you when things don’t go according to plan. It is also important that your designer can remain respectful to you, when your vision doesn’t quite align with theirs and adjustments need to be made.


Transparent


Transparency is crucial in any professional relationship, but it is especially important in the trade industry. Design professionals must be transparent with their clients about their services, pricing, and timelines to build trust and establish a good working relationship. Clients rely on trade professionals to provide accurate information and expertise to complete a project or fix a problem, and dishonesty or lack of transparency can result in costly mistakes, misunderstandings, and damaged reputations. By being upfront and honest about their work and services, designers can ensure that their clients are satisfied and trust in their ability to complete the job effectively and efficiently.
