IN OUR EFFORT TO SAVE TIME AND RESOURCES WE OFTEN SAY: "WHY SHOULD I SPEND MONEY FOR DEVELOPING A PROJECT IF I CAN PROCEED TO THE REPAIRS AND SPEND THE SAME AMOUNT OF RESOURCES IN MATERIALS AND FURNITURE?" "WHO APART FROM ME COULD POSSIBLY KNOW WHAT I REALLY NEED? "," I FEAR THAT I WILL PAY THE AMOUNT, BUT I WILL NOT LIKE THE PROJECT. "
Yes, we will find a number of reasons why it is better not to take advantage of an architect or designer. But are we right? Is that really true?
Very often, when we decide that we can handle everything by ourselves without the help of an architect or designer, we make mistakes that we need to correct later. This does not include only technical nuances but also the decoration. We could make a mistake not only while selecting the furniture and accessories but also while combining colors.
1.Experience and habits
What designers do is work that requires professional skills and habits. They draw, calculate by centimeter how much material will be needed for the walls and floors, decide what the layer of glue should be under the tiles and so on. Even if we don’t believe in the creativity of a designer, we can turn to him only for planning the space and making sketches for the workers, and that, in turn, will save us vain efforts.
2. Distribution of the budget
Naturally, any obstacle encountered in the process can be solved with sufficient resources that can undoubtedly be saved with the help of a designer's services. This is the person who can tell us the exact materials with which we can save some of our budget because not everyone likes going around in the weekend in search of the most cost-effective materials. From this point of view, a designer can advise us about the most rational way to distribute and use our budget.
3. Selection of ideas
We often like different design ideas that we have seen in magazines and on TV, and the more we look at them, the more ideas we like we start to pile for ourselves. In addition to the magazines, we like the neighbor’s idea for our bathroom design; and in the interior design shop near work, there is a great sale of accessories that we have been waiting since last month. A big mess is created that prevents us from thinking soberly and we risk making an unreasonable purchase. Choosing what we really need from all the diversity is the designer's job.
4. Beauty and aesthetics
Whichever shop we visit, the consultants will always be convinced that their merchandise is the best and most cost-effective for us at the moment. Of course, even the most experienced employee finds it difficult to imagine the concept of our interior and the atmosphere we would like to recreate in it. Without sketches and visualizations we will have to explain literally "with our fingers". Even in this case everyone perceives aesthetics and beauty in a different way. Is it really wise to trust the employees in the furniture store or those in the flooring shop ... Or is it actually better to trust a designer, the author of the project? The good designer knows how colors can be combined, how to fit the furniture and accessories and how it can all acquire good compositional consistency.
No matter how many square meters we have, they are never enough. A designer can create a comfortable and functional home from a small area. He can undoubtedly tell us how the space can be expanded visually and how we can make the best use of the space.
6. Accents and details
A good designer will create an interior that will emphasize your individuality. An interior that will match your expectations and make you feel comfortable and cozy in the new space.
7. Process control
It may not be complete, but we certainly have more control when a designer is present than when he is not. The designer and the visual design help bring order into chaos, and chaos definitely permeates through the construction site. The project is the action plan that leads us and the workers in the desired direction. Certainly not every worker is ready to carry out his work in such a way that it could look aesthetically pleasing but actually on the other hand, he prefers to work in the most comfortable and easiest manner. That is why we have a project with which we can control this process.
While trusting our senses and in our striving to save effort, time and money, it is not worth refusing professional help that will contribute to our goals. The skillful, rational approach of an architect or designer will recreate in our space our individuality and inspire the desired comfort and coziness.
