Reasons to Hire a Pro to Style Your Newly Renovated Space
In the design world, styling is the word used for accessorizing a finished space. One of the final layers in the design process includes selecting those accessories that best enhance and compliment your newly designed space.
Selecting those additions and carefully deciding on placement is something that can be easily overlooked in the scope of a large renovation project. Many homeowners decide that even after enlisting the help of a designer for the entire project, they want to accessorize the space themselves.
Here are some reasons why you would benefit from having a designer style your newly renovated space:
Your designer has a thorough knowledge of scale and proportion. This allows them to easily mix and match accessories knowing what items will work and what items will not. This saves you hours of time searching and returning items. Your designer can do this efficiently with a smaller amount of time.
Unlike most customers, designers have access to numerous outlets to source accessories, some retail and some trade. They will know where they can find certain items quickly and easily. Knowing just what you’re looking for is half of the battle in styling your completed space. Finding those items can be complicated.
Styling is not just about selecting the right items but knowing exactly where and how to place them in the space to create an overall cohesive look. This is something that a designer excels at. The goal of styling a completed space is to put the finishing touch on the overall design. Knowing what areas to focus on and what areas to draw the eye to it’s very important.
Creating an overall professional look is a designer’s forte. That is the reason you hire them. Enlist your designer to complete your project to the very end, adding those final details. Those small details can make or break the final look at the space.
Your designer is intimately familiar with all of the details in your design. For instance, the curved edges of a tile or the small gold trim on a lamp, because they designed the space. Your designer will be able to make selections for accessories to coordinate nicely with all of the rest of the features of your room. Your designer will know which design elements to highlight and compliment in your space that creates an entire composition.
Discuss styling and accessorizing options with your designer before your renovation so that styling items can be ready to go at the completion of your project.
