The sad thing is people splashing money on items/Reno’s that don’t work but they never have money to engage the services of an interior designer. There is too much reality show going on and everyone thinks they can do better by themselves...as seen on TV. The amount of poorly designed and styled spaces is overwhelming, I’ve seen it all as a real estate agent ...

@Dana I couldn't agree more. People I know are building a house, mortgaging themselves till retirement, picking every fixing, fitting, furniture themselves. When they told me how overwhelming the process was, I gently suggested an interior designer to look over their choices (after all, I myself like many different things but very few actually go together in a cohesive way or fit the space). But like you've observed, because it costs money, they chose not to engage one.

In my opinion, it should be the other way round: because it costs so much money already, spend the little bit extra to engage an interior designer to get it right.
