Trendy versus trending? There is a big difference. It sounds like minor semantics, but in the world of home design, it’s important. Trendy is a moment in time. It can be here this season and gone the next. Trending, however, is taking part in a much wider and lasting movement.
When you make big decisions for your home, such as flooring or cabinetry, you don’t want to make a decision based on what is trendy. You want to make a decision by what will have lasting appeal AND work for your lifestyle and budget.
A trend expert, like the professionals at Standale Interiors, is someone who can spot patterns, designs, and colors across a wide range of industries. We look for the styles, patterns, textures, materials and colors that will have lasting impact and timeless beauty.
Is there room for trendy in our lives? Absolutely. Trendy items in our wardrobes and in our homes can provide lively updates for a season. But when making the significant investments for your home, trust the Standale professionals to bring you options that will make your home beautiful this season and many, many more to come.
Q: Can I realistically handle this remodeling project by myself?
A: If the answer is NO, here are some great reasons to consult and hire an interior designer.
So – before you dive into the project, it’s important to ask yourself one question: Realistically, can I complete this project successfully (i.e. on time and on budget) on my own? If there’s even a shred of doubt, consider consulting an interior designer for help. I can’t tell you how often customers have said, “Oh I wish I had gone with your suggestion”, meaning their results were costly and disappointing. With the help of an interior designer, you’re more likely to end up with results that actually exceed your expectations. You don’t have to be rich to hire an interior designer. Let a designer find just what you need – or didn’t know you needed – to bring your dream home to life.
Single room or entire home – expenses can quickly get out of hand. An interior designer can help you create your overall vision for the project, including schedule and budget.
Your designer is used to working on projects and has access to products, resources and people that you just don’t. Your designer will help you eliminate options that just don’t/won’t work. Choosing the wrong material or installer will be a costly and time consuming mistake.
If you questions what furniture style works best or how colors complement each other for your project,, hire an interior designer. This will result in a truly customized home – your home!
Especially if you’re in a time crunch to get your remodeling project down, hiring an interior designer could be the single best use of your dollars. They are used to schedules, permits and the order of decisions required to keep contractors moving forward on your home.
Yes, there are some project available “only to the trades”. SO if you truly want a unique look, hire an interior designer who can help you achieve a custom project.
