Is Interior Design Worth Paying For?

Submitted by Home & Garden Advices

Deciding whether interior design is worth paying for is a moot point – it all depends on your affordable budget, your determination to get things exactly as you want them, the complexity of the job, and the exact services being offered by the designer.

Nevertheless, the short and easy answer for most of us mere financial mortals is a resounding “no”. That’s because we can do it ourselves by a few searches on the internet some colour swatches and finding a few pictures in interior magazines etc., that we’d  like to emulate – and which have a good “fit” with the overall feel of the property. Then it’s simply a matter of either getting the work done to your design brief by an interior decorator – or doing this yourself, picking up the right cheap dining table and chairs, beds, wardrobes and sofa in the sofas sale and hey presto!

But of course, some interior designers work through this whole process with you – and can buy in expert services more expertly and far more cheaply than you’ll ever be able to. So you see, there’s no easy answer.

Of course, no-one else can really decide these things for you – it’s too personal an issue and far too individual. But on the whole, I’d still say it’s not quite worth it – for most of the people most of the time. Others would disagree.

Overall, the best advice is to decide on an overall theme, look and colour scheme – with pictures and design layouts of what you have in mind – and try not to veer too much from your (or the designer’s…) original vision for the place.

Good luck.

You need to purchase a crib, changing table and dressers to start out with. The furniture you choose should be made with sturdy materials. There are two ways to check for guidelines on furniture safety. The United States Consumer Products Safety Commission can provide you with safety guidelines on things such as the bars on cribs. The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association certifies that all furniture passes their safety standards.
