Time and time again we hear “we really need help with our home but we can’t afford an interior designer”. We at K&L Interiors are here to debunk the myth that the average person can’t afford an interior designer. Here are a few reasons why it’s not true and how working with us can actually SAVE you money.
1.We can work on one room at a time
More often than not, clients have several projects that they need design help with and in order to make it financially feasible we spread them out over time. Creating an overall budget, plan and timeline allows for a cohesive design which is wallet friendly!
2. We work with existing furniture, accessories and more permanent design elements
You don’t always have to start from scratch or take a room down to the studs to end up with a beautiful space. We work with you to decide what can be used as-is, repurposed or revamped. Whether it’s relocating a chair from the guest bedroom with new fabric on it, refinishing an existing table or putting up a fresh coat of paint on the walls, we can incorporate your existing pieces in the design to make it more affordable.
3. We can save you money
Yes, you read that correctly! This happens in a couple of different ways. The first is that we can help you eliminate unnecessary buying. It happens to everyone, you see a great piece of furniture in a store and think “I have to have this!” Once you get it home, the color is all wrong, it’s too big or too small, or maybe it just looks out of place no matter where you put it. With K&L Interiors, we can work with you to define your overall design style and coordinate all of the purchases so they fit with the design of the space and have a specific function. Second, as interior designers we received a trade only discount which we pass along to you! Most of our trade purchases give you 20% off of retail value.
4. We provide value to your home
Whether it is through personal value or resale value, you can expect to get back what you put in to your home. The personal value of having a space transformed with added function and style is money well spent. This could be a space that was previously unused and we turn into functional, valuable real estate, or a drab space that wasn’t enjoyable to be in and is now a fun, exciting place for you and your family. If you are planning to sell in the near or distant future K&L interiors always takes into consideration the type of design we implement and how it can affect the dollar value of your home.
We know that whether you are planning to build a new home, remodel your existing home or freshen up the décor, it’s a big decision. Working with K&L Interiors will be the best one you make and we don’t take it for granted. We pride ourselves on creating a pleasurable experience for our clients which in turn makes happy clients.
