If you’re like many people who buy a home for sale in DC Ranch, you need to find the right interior design professional – but where do you start?
6 Steps to Finding the Right Interior Design Pro
The right interior design expert will listen to your needs, get to know your style and come up with refreshingly fantastic ideas for decorating your home – and you can use follow these six steps to find someone who’s just right.
#1. Create a Vision Board
When you start talking to interior design experts, they’ll want to know all about your style – and the best way to convey what you like is through an online vision board. You can even get some inspiration from Pinterest, where you’ll be able to collect dozens of images of styles you like.
#2. Talk to Family and Friends
Like any other service-related professional, interior design pros come with referrals. If you know someone who’s incredibly happy with his or her designer, get a name and number! If you don’t know anyone who’s used a designer, start reading reviews on Google and Yelp, which can be tremendously useful in narrowing down your list.
#3. Compare Designer Portfolios
Good interior décor pros have plenty of samples you can see online, so go through several portfolios to find quality style among the professionals you’ve been referred to (or those you’ve read good reviews about). This should narrow down your list even further.
#4. Check Credentials
See if the designers on your short list are members of local or national design organizations, and if they’ve completed any continuing education. Good designers have both a natural knack for it and plenty of education and training in layout, materials, lighting and more.
#5. Start Talking
When you get your list narrowed down to just a few professionals, start making phone calls. Set up consultations in your home if you can, where you can watch for these things:
- Does the designer listen to what you like and ask questions about your lifestyle?
- Can he or she accomplish your goals without busting your budget?
- Is he or she personable and friendly? (In other words, can you get along well? You’ll be working together for a while, and this process is supposed to be fun.)
#6. Make Your Decision
When you find an interior design pro who’s listening to your ideas and trying to find out what’s really going to make you happy, you’ve arrived – you’re going to be even more in love with your new DC Ranch home than you were when you bought it.
