An additional benefit of working with an interior designer, is exposure to a plethora of products the public doesn’t have access to in retail shops. If you just need a second opinion, designers can offer you consultation services at an hourly rate. For the kitten-caboodle, a full service designer can help with space planning, finish selection, furniture selection, window treatments, hardware etc. etc. … Plus the same goes for interior designers, the good ones still have work but they are open to projects they may not have had time for a year ago. Please feel free to contact me to set up a meeting to discuss your design needs.
In a down economy, should you be remodeling in San Diego?
As a way to cope with the current real estate and financial situation many, in San Diego and country-wide, are turning to “nesting”. The thought is “let’s make our home a haven” – the place we vacation every day. Whether that is your motivation or you have just been wanting to redo a room in your home, now is the time. With the San Diego market as it is, the best contractors/vendors still have business but are considering jobs of all sizes, and you don’t have to wait months or even years anymore.
With any project there is a laundry list of decisions to make, for some this can be daunting. An interior designer guides you through these decisions and keeps the entire project in mind with every decision – often times you lose this working with contractors, who make unilateral decisions rather than always keeping the whole in mind.
