How Choose Interior Designer

How To Choose An Interior Designer

If you’re planning to tackle a renovation, remodeling, or redecoration project, choosing an interior designer can be one of the most important choices you’ll make.

If you’re like most people, it will be less about finding an award winning interior designer than it will be about finding someone who is right for you and your project.

The process of interior design is very personal and intimate, and it’s essential that you find someone who understands what you want, what you need, and what’s most important to you.

Below are criteria for choosing an interior designer.

Communication
Good communication can be the key to a successful interior design project. At Production & Design, Inc, we pride ourselves on timely, honest communication. If the project encounters a snag, we will reach out to you to resolve it, sooner rather than later. If we have a difference of opinion, we’ll give you candid feedback. Every step of the way, we’ll keep open minds and open lines of communication.

Education
Education is part of what separates interior decorators from interior designers, and it serves as the cornerstone for interior design fundamentals such as balance, color, space, light, form, lines, focal points, and more. Linda Sue Shirkey, owner of Production & Design, Inc, has an Associate Degree in Interior Design from Arapahoe Community College and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Colorado.

Experience
When it comes to interior design, experience counts. While education is important, there’s no substitute for “real world” experience. We have more than 30 years experience in interior design, so we know how to manage tradespeople, supervise projects, and meet or exceed client expectations.

Resources
When you hire an interior design firm, you’re tapping into all of its resources, including retailers that offer discounts, talented tradespeople, and more. Because we’ve been providing interior design services in the Denver metro area since 1986, we have a strong network of people and companies. We’re happy to share those resources with you when we manage your project.

Types Of Projects
Most interior designers have certain types of projects they specialize in, and it’s wise to work with someone whose “wheelhouse” includes your type of project. We specialize in all aspects of residential interior design, including remodeling kitchens and bathrooms.

Interior Design Style
Many people are under the mistaken impression that they need to hire an interior designer who focuses on the design style they favor. That style might be modern, art deco, minimalist, traditional, transitional, or eclectic. We believe that experience with one specific style isn’t as important as the ability to help clients identify, articulate, and bring to life their own unique visions.

Good Fit – Believe, Like, Trust
Because the design process is so personal, people usually choose an interior designer based on whether they think the designer will be a good fit for them. We often think of this as BLT – believe, like, and trust. We’re pleased to offer a free interior design consultation so we can talk about your project, share ideas, and discuss our approach. From there, you can determine if we’re a good fit for you and your project!
