Do you shy away from the idea of hiring an interior decorator because of something you’ve heard someone else say? There are a few myths surrounding this industry that keeps a lot of people from taking advantage of the services decorators provide. It’s really a shame that so many people are missing out on all the benefits these professionals have to offer simply because of a few misconceptions.

For example, when you just mention the words interior decorator many people automatically think they can’t afford to hire a professional. They assume that it’s way too expensive when in reality it can be very affordable. It all depends on your particular project, so there is no way of knowing what it would cost until you discuss the details with a professional.

Those who know how the industry works understand that decorators will work hard to find ways to accomplish your goals, while staying within your budget. Many are also willing to take on small projects that don’t require big budgets as well as the larger ones.

Before you decide you can’t afford to hire a professional decorator, give us a call to discuss the details of your project. You might be surprised at what you can afford.

Three Common Myths Surrounding Interior Decorators

While affordability is at the top of the list when discussing myths surrounding interior decorators, it’s certainly not the only one. Many homeowners hesitate to hire decorators and designers due to the following misconceptions surrounding the industry.

Here are three common myths that keep many homeowners from hiring a professional decorator:

  1. The design they create wont suit my taste and personality– Many people believe that professionals create designs to suit their own taste but it doesn’t work that way. Here at J. Design Group, it is our goal to turn your vision into a reality, not ours.
  2. My home will no longer be comfortable– Hiring a professional to decorate your home does not mean that you’ll be stuck with beautiful but very uncomfortable furniture and fabrics that you’re scared to touch. In fact, our job is to make your home both livable and beautiful.
  3. My home is too old or small to decorate professionally– This is a big misconception. You can turn any home into a gorgeous oasis no matter how old or small it is. You might be amazed at just how beautiful your home can look when you turn to a professional for help.

Our expert decorators in Miami have the training and experience needed to create the look you want. Even if you have a good eye for matching colors or choosing wall art it can be difficult to pull everything together in a way that complements each other. However, professionals have made a career out of it. Therefore, they have the knowledge and experience needed to make the right choices.

Make Working with a Decorator a Pleasant Experience

Now that you know hiring an expert can prove to be very rewarding, you need to know what you can do to make working with a decorator a pleasant experience. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that they automatically know what to do. They do have the skills and the training to do a fantastic job but what they lack is your personal information. They need to know what you’re looking for in a design.

Discuss your likes and dislikes with the decorator. Be clear about what you want and be honest about your budget. The more information you provide, the easier it will be for the professional to create the look you want. This will help to ensure the experience is a pleasant one.
