Should I Hire an Interior Designer?

How do you know if hiring a designer is your best option? One of the first things you will want to do when planning a new design project is determine your priorities. Number the items below (1 – 9) in order of your priority: ___ Function ___ Service ___ Installation ___ Design ___ Quality ___ Warranty ___ Color ___ Cost ___ Convenience If any of these items are of top interest to you, using a design consultant or interior designer will give you the best value. A professional can help you make decisions and work within your budget.
