Can You Really Get a Room Design Online You’ll Love?
The answer is YES! You can get a room design online you’ll love with a smart interior decorator who uses the power of the internet plus the human touch of a designer. That’s the secret.
Thousands of clients from celebrities to your next door neighbor can’t be wrong. Havenly, Laurel + Wolf, The Decorist and Homepolish are a few of the national online companies invested in providing interior decor solutions. If you’ve never used an interior decorator before or you aren’t sure about how to go about hiring one, this is an affordable way to get some expert design help.
In fact I think design online makes the process of discovering how you want your home to look easier.
Think of it this way. Filling out a questionnaire online forces you to really think about what’s important to you. What colors you like, what favorite pieces you want to keep and what styles appeal to your life style. As a bonus, when you provide this kind of detail for your designer, they have a chance to hear what you’re saying without distractions.
Too often when a designer walks into a space they think about what THEY would do to the space. Yes you’re hiring them for their expert opinion, but let’s not exclude your input as the homeowner. With the collaborative nature of virtual design, you’re truly a part of the design process along with your designer.
If you’re a home investor or property manager, you probably have specific budget needs, timelines and schedules to keep in mind.
Online interior design gives you a chance to give your input on budget from the very beginning. Because all the decisions, products, plans and finishes are stored online in a project account created specifically for you it also gives you an element of collaboration that may get lost in the traditional design process. With virtual design you’re more involved than ever
