Our Top 6 Reasons why you should hire an interior designer and how we can relate
1. Save Money
— Avoid costly mistakes
— Take advantage of our buying power
2. Professional, Honest Advice
— We are looking at your home with fresh eyes
— We will be straight up honest with our assessment
— We will will help you focus – so many of our clients are all over the place with a laundry list way bigger than their budget
3. We help clients figure out what they need/want by probing and asking questions about things they never thought about.
— Example: Reworking a client’s original plan – Altered the plan from the architect and builder to make a significant difference to the way the family functioned and their lifestyle.
— Saving Our Clients Time and Effort
— Our clients are professional working folk – no time to make their homes comfortable and beautiful.
— We do all the dirty work – and there is a lot of it.
— Our resource list is much more in depth and varied than any client would have access to.
— Vetting, professional reliable contractors in every category
— Artisans for custom creations – Our carpenter who added circular trim to flat doors for a show house we did – check out the blog post on this. Other projects include a custom 116” long sofa table with a beautiful fretwork design and then lacquered in a gloss navy blue as well as a custom designed nightstand with beautiful woodwork to house a CPAP machine and all the accessories that go with it. There are awful options in the marketplace that would never work with a high end design with a beautiful headboard and linens.
— Specialty manufacturers for custom furnishings, art, rugs, lighting etc.
5. A “WOW” Personal Design
— We aren’t afraid to try new things and think outside of the box – so we take this burden off of our clients. – COLOR
— We have the skills to work with textures, colors, patterns – to mix antiques with modern, to work in a room spatially that our clients aren’t trained to do.
— We create renderings to give our clients a beautiful, realistic visual of their new spaces.
6. Return on Your Investment & Resale
— Hi-Lo Design and encouraging investing in those things that need to last.
— Not designing for the short term but the long term (our personal style).
