How an interior designer brings value to your house renovation
Like many people in Sydney’s eastern suburbs or elsewhere, you may be thinking about a house renovation.
How do you navigate the many possibilities and make the process easy?
Entrusting an interior designer to manage the process will save you time and effort, and your home will be one of a kind. The design cost will be recouped by these savings and the successful end result, and your house renovation process will be a pleasure.
1. An interior designer can project manage your whole house renovation, no matter how big or small the project may be. The holistic service that an interior designer can provide means they work with you from concept stage to completion. They have a network of reliable trades and suppliers, and a broad knowledge of finishes and products. They will keep the budget on track, source materials, coordinate trades, collate quotes, and oversee installation. With a professional by your side through the whole process you can be sure that your final choices will be timeless, functional and suitable for your family.
2. Have you already spent endless hours on Pinterest? An interior designer can fast-track the research. Even once you find looks and products you like aesthetically, how will they work together? The choices are endless for any house renovation, so work with an experienced interior designer to be sure the end result is a success. They will be on call for you and provide personalised advice from the beginning of your project. Their knowledge of colour, materials, the durability of products, and how spaces function is priceless, and saves you loads of research time. You will have peace of mind that your home will have a coherent look tailored to you.
3. Good design makes life easier and adds value when it’s time to sell. Interior designers have the foresight to see how spaces flow and where value lies. They will consider your home design holistically, ensuring cohesion and functionality between rooms and the best way to spend your budget. Even if you’re only renovating your kitchen! An interior designer will not only enhance your lifestyle, they will add value to your home for the long term. Real estate in Sydney’s eastern suburbs and elsewhere is competitive and to stand out, a unique design is key.
4. To see financial return immediately from your house renovation, choose an interior designer who understands sustainability. When you save energy and water, you save money. A sustainable interior designer will guide you through all the energy saving options. There is an array of factors - the design layout itself; wall and floor insulation; heating options; solar panels; rainwater tanks and water saving fixtures; reclaimed materials; vintage furniture and more. It’s worth investing in someone who has managed this process many times.
Entrusting an interior designer with your house renovation will be the best investment for your home.
