The custom home building process is stressful and involves hundreds, if not thousands, of decisions. For the lucky few who know themselves and know their style to the “t”, they may be able to make all the decisions without too much time spent thinking and second guessing – for the rest of us, we might be overwhelmed and second guess ourselves every step of the way.
Luckily, there are people who specialize in design and decision making. Interior designers are instrumental in transforming a house into a home. In the custom home building process, interior designers are there to help keep a cohesive theme or style throughout the home as well as give suggestions and recommendations along the way.
Picture the kitchen, which style of tiles would you like for the backsplash, what color, what size? Does that go with the countertops you have selected? Are the cabinets in the same design family and functionality? What kind of floor pattern would you like? Do all of these different things flow together and work? Just in those few decisions, there are several millions, literally millions, combinations and options. Imagine needing to make decisions like that in every room in a house – it can get exhausting and overwhelming real quick. An interior designer will establish what you like and help narrow those millions into a few options for you to decide.
Some builders have in-house interior designers who are readily available to help with the design. Interior designers don’t just help with the physical house design, they also help with the furniture and items inside each room. From selecting couches and beds, to little accents throughout the home, they are there to help ensure a beautiful home that you can’t wait to come home to every day!
In the long run, hiring and using an interior designer is sure to save you money. A great interior designer will ensure that each room is the correct color, all the elements of the room flow nicely and fit the space, and that you don’t have to go back and redo things until you get it right. Odds are, no matter what your budget for design, an interior designer will ensure that your dollar goes as far as possible to bring the space together.
For most people, when they walk into a house for the first time, they don’t notice how each wall is laid out or how perfect and optimized the floorplan is – they notice how the house looks and feels. The look and feel comes from a beautifully designed space with elements that work together to create a work of art. The interior designers job is to make the space beautiful and usable – why wouldn’t you bring them in for your custom home?!
