How to Find the Best Home Designer

by Guy Dinay on Apr 1, 2014

One crucial way of hiring a good local designer is to contact a local chapter of ASID for names of best designers, or peruse their websites for tips, guides and referrals. Another way is to check with retailers, for example furniture or wallpaper stores, to find out if they recommend good local designers. Additionally, some furniture outlets have good designers among their staff members. Consider calling co-workers or friends and asking for recommendations. You can also contact the design section of a local university, or looking in the yellow pages. On yellow pages, there are contacts for locating designers.

After getting some names-and considering that you are working on a tight budget-you will have to inform your requirements, not only creative wise, but also financially, to your prospective designers together with any preferences you have for the task. The more the information you give, the better the house will be designed for you. This is because, if you give little information, the designer will fill some empty spaces with his or her own ideas, effectively coming up with a design that suits him or her and not you. Therefore, provide as much information as you can. 

To give you sufficient time to give enough information, set aside first information interview before settling down for any one designer. Note that each and every designer has various unique ways of performing the task, and also different fees structures. Some prefer a flat fee, others hourly fee while others prefer a percentage of purchases. Be sure to be clear on the amount to be charged, and whether deposits are necessary, how you will be billed, what you get in return, and-most importantly-the duration of time it will take the designer to complete the work.

Also ask your designer whether there are some creative ways to save some money. May be these is some associated tasks you can perform yourself, for instance laying tile or painting. Consider working with your designer on a uniform fee basis, or you can request them to come for a short time to create some sketches and give some ideas that you will apply in future.

Make sure that you are comfortable about all the arrangements, from the person to finances involved, before allowing the designer to proceed. Usually, designers have a collection with photos of the work they have done before. So, take time to look at such tasks with a very critical eye, to gauge if the appearance they come up with are similar to what you intend to create in your home. 

It is advisable to collect photos from journals and magazines of furniture and homes you like. This will give your designer somewhere to start from while creating a design that specifically suits you. Make color copies of the same, and supply the designer with some, just in case they would wish to take home, so that you remain with some copies. Refer to them from time to time, since designing is partially a process of eradicating the things that do not fit in, and focusing on the goal in mind. For further information, see the article on inspiration and information on trimmings as well as a helpful project design profile.

Wishing you all the best in your search for a great designer, and also with your project!
