Why and when to hire an interior designer, decorator

I recently came across a great article why it makes sense to hire an interior designer or decorator.

All of us offer different services, fees, specializing in new construction and remodeling, custom window coverings and draperies, gifts and accessories, lighting, rugs, etc.

Some of the most interesting facts are that you actually safe money when hiring an interior designer.

Another great point is that an interior designer or decorator  can give you a professional assessment of your situation, that will lead to a solid plan of action. Order of things in a design plan a ski in determining what can be repurposed or should be edited. This will not only affect the budget but help you to spend it more efficiently.

Commercial and residential interior design and decorating in Knoxille and surrounding areas

Lighting makes such a huge difference in any room design and always needs to be carefully selected.  Not just for the style and finish, but also to supply the interior space with direct and indirect lighting, functional as well as mood lighting. Not only does it help to give a room depth, but it also is able to give it more dimension and character. Our two favorite lighting lines by far are Visual Comfort lighting and Currey & Company. Both companies have most unique and timeless styles and absolutely gorgous finishes.
