The Role of an Interior Designer

Why hire an Interior Designer? Why is this service worth the investment?

Interior Designers possess the skills for spacial design which includes composition, scale, and proportion along with a knowledge of building systems, materials, and detailing. Our experience also brings with it the knowledge of interior detailing and finishes, familiarity with furniture, fixtures and equipment and are skilled at using color, fabrics, textures and lighting. The most important goal is to ensure a safe environment for clients and to incorporate not only aesthetics, but to ensure all building codes are adhered to as well as proper spatial ergonomics. The organization, conceptual design and extensive experience of project management makes the design service valuable for any interior project.
