Are you looking to hire a contractor or interior designer?
You might want to knock down some walls or add a window, so you may be thinking: why wouldn’t I hire a contractor first? Good question. Interior designers have building codes knowledge; they know what is structurally safe to move around or tear down. Not all contractors have design experience.
An interior designer can walk into a room, listen to your wants and needs for the space, and come up with an amazing design plan. They create your vision for you, and then they make it happen by working with contractors or electricians and so forth. A contractor will listen to what you want and carry that out for you; you must be the designer in this situation. What would you rather do: design the space yourself and hire a contractor to do the work? OR hire an interior designer to create a design for your unique style and collaborate with a contractor do complete the project?
If you hire an interior designer, the responsibilities for the project will fall on them; if you hire a contractor first, the responsibilities remain yours until a designer comes into the picture.
So, when you are thinking of redecorating or remodeling a room, ask yourself how much of the responsibility you want to have. In the end, you may end up with more responsibility than you want if you don’t hand the project over to someone with the knowledge and experience to run a successful project.
