It's All in the Details - 5 Reasons You Should Use a Designer
Updated: Nov 9, 2022
They say a picture is worth a thousand words....this one nailed it! Proper planning and design can save you valuable time and money. A good designer is like a great chef.....utilizing the ingredients and taste preferences that are tried and true, but also not afraid to go outside of the box to create the extraordinary. While creativity is key in the presentation; if your personal tastes aren't met, the end product won't truly be satisfying. By collaborating with suppliers and the various trades throughout the construction process, this ensures all the 1 million + 1 details are covered and helps your experience be pleasant and hassle-free.
#1 - Strategic planning
Specifications and designs are created to elevate your existing floorplan or provide new spaces suitable to your lifestyle and budget. A designer is able to best visualize the space, maximize its potential and translate your visions into a unified cohesive plan. Detailed renderings, floor plans and specifications provide the necessary resources for carpenters and other trades to proceed with their work and avoid costly mistakes. This will keep the trades on track, and avoid cost overages that can occur from constant changes in the field or disconnect with the design and actual cost to build.
#2 - Curated spaces
While some of the current trends may appeal to you, it is important to make your space unique and relevant to your lifestyle. By incorporating timeless classic design flavored with elements relevant to your personal tastes will provide the perfect bespoke interior or exterior space. This will help you avoid trendy selections that can quickly become tired or dated....or look just like your neighbor's house!

#3 - Simplify the process
"When you're overwhelmed, the answer is always.......GET RID OF SOMETHING. LOTS OF SOMETHINGS." – Courtney Carver, author of Be More With Less
When faced with the many decisions involved in a renovation or new construction project, it can leave you feeling overwhelmed and anxious. The investment in a designer will streamline the process and help you navigate through the entire process with ease. From 3-D visualization to product selections, a designer can consult with you and coordinate all the nuances of the construction process.
#4 - Function and beauty
" Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful." - William Morris
You've seen those houses that look more like a museum than a home....you just don't feel like you can put your feet up (and probably shouldn't!) Wouldn't you rather enjoy the rooms in your house than preserve them? Popular floorplans today eschew the traditional formal Living Rm and Dining Rm in favor of more open floor plans that interconnect Great Rm with Eat-in Kitchen and Breakfast Nook. With more openness, creative storage solutions are a must. While A HOME IS MEANT TO BE LIVED IN, a hodgepodge of clutter is about as appealing as the stoic museum motif. These are just a few examples to illustrate how effectively combining both beauty and function, your home will become your haven.
#5 - Go with the FLOW
Visual harmony is paramount to make a space pleasing to the eye. Continuity, scale, texture, pattern and color are just a few of the many elements necessary to make one space flow easily to the next....in both exterior and interior applications. The interconnectedness of spaces and finishes make it imperative that your design and appointments visually connect. Like a puzzle, you know when something doesn't fit.
"Details make perfection, and perfection is not a detail."
- Leonardo Da Vinci
