Using a Designer in a Home Remodel


When it comes to doing a remodel, you know that you need a contractor, suppliers, and workers, but what about a designer?


The benefit of working with an experienced designer is that you will get exactly what you want out of a project the first time. A designer will be thinking about the little details that might get overlooked in the big picture. And they will take into consideration how you use the space. Do you love to cook? If so, your kitchen will be different from that of someone who prefers to cater their dinner parties.


After deciding to use a designer’s help, you need to select a designer, which can be a difficult process. The first thing to consider is the level of involvement you would like your designer to have in the project. Some designers offer design-only services, meaning they will draw up the plans for the project, which clients can then take to different contractors to get estimates. Others will organize the project from beginning to end.


Finally, you should seek recommendations from friends who have had good experiences with designers, and view a designer’s portfolio before you make a decision.


Ultimately, it's up to you to decide whether or not you want to work with a designer, but it is important to make an informed decision. At the very least, it may be beneficial to consult with a designer before you begin your project. Redesigning a kitchen or bathroom can be a big investment, and you want to be happy with the result!
