Here’s why hiring the right interior design team is beyond WORTH IT!

Hiring an interior designer can be a tough decision – we’re sure you have lots of questions. Maybe you’re asking… “Why should I hire an interior designer rather than DIY-ing my project?” Or “What value will I get from hiring a designer? Will I get my money’s worth?” We are going back to the basics in today’s blog and answering these fundamental questions… hopefully making you more comfortable and confident to make an informed decision about hiring our interior design team. 

The first reason you should hire a designer? We will save you TIME and MONEY… the things all of us want more of, right? Here at EED, our design team puts our clients in control of where their budget dollars get spent. For example, if you want to spring for high quality flooring and lavish light fixtures, we can help tone down/manage other areas of your budget to ensure the upgrades that are most important to you are feasible. Plus, designers can help avoid costly mistakes by catching errors early-on in the planning, design, or install phases. We have an eye for detail, and it comes in handy for catching problems early on in your projects, or even preventing problems ahead of time.

Designers can save you time as well, simply because you won’t have to come up with all the ideas, make all the selections, and ensure it all gets done following a timeline. Your designers will know what needs to happen, when it needs to happen, and how best to accomplish the task at hand. At the end of the day, your time is money, and we are here to help preserve that!

Another reason to hire a designer from EED is to gain access to our people and our prices. As designers, we get exclusive discounts – not only on furniture, but also on services, and some finish products such as paint, hardware, tile, etc. By hiring a design team, we are happy to share these discounts with you, to help you get the most bang for your buck! 

We also have a very expansive list of contacts because we work so closely with other trade-related professionals in the design industry. Our list includes painters, tilers, wallpaper installers, landscapers, realtors – the list goes on and on! We are happy to share these resources with our clients to help ensure your project will get done the way you envisioned in a timely, professional, and cost-efficient manner. 

Another reason to hire Elizabeth Erin Designs is that we are nationwide! All of our meetings can be done virtually and we can send fabric samples to your home so you know exactly what you’re getting. We have vendors and white glove delivery service across the country!

Are you a visual person? Do you find yourself gravitating more towards pictures and graphs rather than words or numbers? This is another HUGE reasons to hire a design team. At EED, our design team not only curates a personalized design for each of our clients, but we also offer 3D renderings as part of some of our packages. 3D renderings can help you visualize what your space will look like post-design and help you ensure you are getting what you want.

If you are worried about the cost of interior design, just remember you will gain all of that investment back in value when you go to sell your home. You’ll probably manage to sell your home faster and for more money in the long run, because your home will have a cohesive and elevated feel that will entice home buyers to purchase. Bonus points if you have your home professionally staged by a home stager!

Hiring a design team can give you a more pleasant experience of your overall process – let us take away the stresses and unwanted headaches! Designers bring a set of fresh eyes and can give ideas you may have never thought of. This can help your home be more functional and work better on an everyday basis for you and your family. 

If nothing else, hiring an interior designer provides you a professional, trained, and educated opinion on your project. If you find yourself doubting your design skills and knowledge about trends or what will look cohesive, this is what we specialize in!
