What does an interior designer do?


A good design professional will hone your style down to its very essence and be able to choose a functional layout that feels natural to you. Interior design companies can be involved as much or as little as the client desires. Many clients who hire an interior decorator — particularly those who are remodeling — have a good sense of how the room should look and what products they should use. Often clients will insist that interior decorators use the products already present in the house. Other times a designer will need to start from scratch — especially if this is a newly purchased or just-built home. An interior design company will need to figure out exactly what the client needs, which includes organizing rooms, laying tile, picking carpeting and colors, and finding furniture to complement it all. Sometimes that means he or she will have to recruit help from other Palo Alto, CA home professionals to help create the perfect look for your renovation.

Do your research before meeting with an interior designer or decorator. Ask yourself what you want your space to become and what it will be used for. Figure out the extent of what you need help with, what your must-haves are and what your budget is. Interior design services can add up fast, so be up front with a potential design firm or individual from the beginning. Also, pick a home decorator that fits your style. Browse through the portfolios of different home design firms and decide if you would live in those houses. Just because you like something doesn’t mean you could live in it. There's a big difference!

Questions to ask when you meet with a interior designers:


  • Can you give me a referral? (It makes a big difference to talk with a client who's worked with the designer before.)
  • Can I see your design portfolio?
  • When will the home renovation be done?
  • Do you charge an hourly rate or a flat rate, or use the cost-plus method or a mixed method?
