It’s not always easy to know where to start when thinking about your renovation project. Where to find the right contractor? What materials to use? Should I make a plan? How much will it cost?... It’s normal to have those questions when starting a new project. Choosing to work with a designer will help you navigate those challenges.
Unfortunately, most of us are not born designers. It’s a profession in its own right, with guidelines, rules and best practices. A designer will be able to assist you each step of the way. Here are some of the benefits to collaborate with an interior designer. Indeed, it can help you whatever the project, whether it is a kitchen, a basement or an extension of a house.
Making the right choice can be critical, as the designer will be the guardian of your project. Make sure to be on the same page in terms of understanding your tastes (industrial, urban, retro, classic, modern…)
Also, maintaining a good communication channel is essential all along the project.
