So why do I need an interior decorator?
The difference is the professionality and the expertise. A good interior decorator knows exactly which furniture you have at home: which shop, which brand, and so forth. He is always up to date with all the trends in the world. Apart from that, a professional interior decorator also had a good and thorough education at an academy. Interior is his expertise, so you can easily assume that a professional interior decorator knows more about interior and furniture than someone with a full-time job in let's say the IT or business management for example. On top of that, a professional interior decorator has much more experience on the area of relocation, design, rebuilding a house, etc., so that he has an idea on what's at play. Have you thought of the fact that a good piece of design furniture can take 8 weeks or more to arrive after you've placed the order? An interior decorator doesn't only know his job well and knows what's going on in the world of furniture, but he can also guide you well during the entire process: coordinating a whole relocation or rebuild of your house, which is also something that requires a lot of attention. This can cause lots of stress to many people!
So, what's the value an interior decorator ads for you?
The difference between an interior decorator and a DIY-er is that the former NEVER does anything at random. There's no such thing. Nothing is allowed to chance. Every decision an interior decorator makes, is based on a reason. A good interior decorator doesn't only know how to feel what a client wants (even if he says he doesn't know what he wants), he can also creatively arrange your interior that it gives your home exactly your own signature, so that no one will ever forget your home. We don't just paint your ceiling black or put a cubist Picasso painting of $25000000 in your hall (well, we can). That's one way of having an unforgettable interior, but it's much more difficult to make a weighed choice that matches exactly with what the client actually really wants. After all, most people don't like black ceilings and don't have 25 million dollars at spare for a painting from which they don't know what it actually is...
OK, so how do we find a good interior decorator?
A good interior decorator can be recognized by his portfolio. A good interior decorator doesn't wait for his customers, but makes sure he's always on the move! Every possibility to gain experience and knowledge, he will grab to keep improving: designing furniture, experimenting with colors, or thinking about own designs. Not only does he keep his eyes open, he also wants to become a better interior decorator: semper progrediens (always progressing), like they call it in Latin. His ambitions must be higher than that of others, which doesn't only drives him to be better, but also in worse times, he will be finding ways to get ideas to fascinate and inspire people. He also has to be different than the rest: how do you give more value to your services? How do you make something that's better than decorator B?
Does deocration-ideas.com also give interior advice?
Yes, we do: interior advice in all types, shapes & sizes! We have already given all kinds of advice for buying interior: small buys, but also whole arrangements and rebuilds! We have contacts with the best furniture, fabric and other deco suppliers. We also design furniture ourselves or change interiors radically. The only thing we don't do is breaking walls. Why not? Because you need a construction engineer for that. Of course we'll know how to tell him what needs to be done, but changes to a construction belongs to the expertise of an engineer. So, we'll never say that we can't help you: doesn't exist!
And what does interior advice cost?
Wowow! Wait! Have you already been standing still at the fact that redecorating your home is a very big intervention? A re-arrangement can easily cost a few dozens of man-hours of labour! If you really want to do a good rebuild, the costs can easily amount to $20000 or more! A shop that wants to redo its interior sounds like something simple, but still, this shop had to close for over a month before they could re-open again(!) Interior advice isn't only about some simple tips, but more about a total package of tailored specially for you to eventually make radical changes to your interior! You can find free tips & advice everywhere, just like on this website or in our newsletter. Usually, an intake will cost you nothing (as your wishes will only be discussed), but further, it'll depend on the project. Are we talking about an intire home? Or is it only some advice for when you go shopping? For $50 an hour you can usually find a reasonable interior decorator with tailored advice. Good interior decorators will usually ask more, and the famous ones will usually ask twice as much. Or more. From these thousands of dollars, these few hundred dollars for a well laid-out advice by an expert, will just be a fraction of the whole operation!
Yes, I know: you're used to free advice, indeed.
