Behind the Scenes | Hiring a Designer
We love working with and designing for our clients, but design is not the only thing we bring to our projects. There are several important ways that interior designers are beneficial when remodeling or redecorating a space.
1. We Can Help You Get Your Money’s Worth
More often than not, when clients first come to us, they don’t have a good idea of what a new space will cost. Part of our value is that we can advise where to put your money so that you end up with a well-designed and well-built project. For example, if a client has a budget, we want to ensure that they are spending on quality pieces that will stand the test of time, rather than spreading their money over a wider array of things that are less expensive and lesser quality. In some instances, this means that the scope of work will need to scale back or get broken into phases. For us, quality is of utmost importance and a new space won’t last without it.
2. We Can Save You Money
Yes, you read that correctly! One of the ways in which we can help a client save is to eliminate unnecessary buying. It happens to everyone – for example, you see a great piece of furniture in a store and think, “I have to have this.” Once it gets home, the color is wrong, it’s too big or too small for the room, or maybe it just looks out of place. In these circumstances, the furniture piece that doesn’t work often gets replaced, and the person ends up spending more than they would have if it was done correctly the first time. We work with our clients to define an overall design aesthetic and ensure functionality. When designing a space, it is important that all of the components coordinate and are appropriately scaled, regardless of whether we’re working on a furniture project or a remodel. Designs that are executed cohesively look good and function well from the start.
3. We Do The Work So You Can Focus On Your Life
Another part of why designers are so valuable to bring onto a project, aside from providing great design ideas, is so that clients don’t have to deal with the minutia that comes with a construction or décor project. We, along with our contractor and architect team, deal with the coordination it takes to make our projects run more smoothly. For décor projects, we take care of procuring furniture and décor pieces, scheduling deliveries, and managing installations. We look after the details so our clients have fewer interruptions in their daily lives for the duration of their project. Interior designers are also beneficial because we narrow down design options from the start. For example, if anyone has ever shopped at a tile showroom, you know it can be an overwhelming experience. Having a designer present limited options for you that we know will work in a space helps streamline the process.
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 that 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.
