One thing most investors will agree on is the fact that it is always desirable to hire an interior designer. Why? Because only an expert can save you from making mistakes that can cost you a fortune.
If you don’t have much experience in home décor and interior design, that you should consider hiring someone who knows how to elaborate an action plan to the smallest details and who knows where to get the best products and services and who are the best contractors. Investors will advise you on buying or investing in a property, but the interior designer knows exactly what and where to look and where to find the most suitable prices. Occasionally, he will see the potential of old furniture and suggest its renovation instead of buying the new one. You can always expect new solutions that will sometimes break the rules, but brighten up your home.
Recently, interior design services have become very popular, sometimes even necessary. People have come to understand the importance of hiring a professional for space planning to make it more functional and comfortable. The interior designer creates an artistic image of the space, chooses the shape, colors, lighting and material texture. Sometimes he will make his own piece of furniture and decorations, but will also suggest buying already made furniture and equipment.

His role lies not only in the visual improvement of the interior, but also in the optimization and matching all the aspects of decoraton in order to make the interior suitable for use and meet all the needs for which it was intended in the first place.

All design elements are arranged in series, starting from visual ones (color, light, shape), tactile (surface, volume, textures) to acoustic ones (noise, echo…). An experienced interior designer has an aesthetic, practical and technical understanding of all these elements.
Every interior designer must also consider one important element – people who will use the space and how they respond to different design elements, not only individually, but also as a group (for example, when receiving guests).
The designer must have a wide technical knowledge of the objects and material used in interior desigin: furniture, lighting, floor and wall coverings, wall decorations, garnishings, curtains, tools, equipment, etc. In addition, he must be familiar with different decorating styles, art and architecture, as well as their historical values.

What does an interior designer really do?
It is very important to understand that the interior designer helps you in creating an artistic image of interior décor based on your ideas and requirements. You should be able to describe those concepts as precisely as possible to your designer, so he could help you with the realization: arrange the space properly, decide what to emphasize, choose comfortable furniture, highlight the most important details and hide the imperfections of the space.
