In a down economy, should you be remodeling in San Diego?

Apr 23, 2010

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.

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.
