5 Things to Consider Before Hiring a Decorator for Your Home Office

As we start the first chapter of a brand new year, you may find yourself thinking about a fresh start. There are few things as exciting as a blank design canvas, the opportunity to overhaul an entire space is one that you should never be afraid of or intimidated by. There are, however, times where we need to ask for a little help to truly see our wildest interior dreams brought to life. Here are 5 things to consider before hiring a decorator to overhaul your home office.

  • Is Your Budget Set?

More often than not, interior design project costs can get a little carried away if you aren’t keeping a close eye on them. It is so easy to sneak a few extra décor items in under the radar, for this reason it is important that you decide on a budget and strictly stick to it. My advice would be to have both a realistic budget as well as an optimistic budget. Your realistic budget is often quite a bit higher, this budget should account for as many seemingly unforeseeable costs as possible. This way you can aim for your optimistic figure but simultaneously make sure you stick to the realistic amount at least.

  • Do You Know Your Interior Design Style?

Whilst interior decorators can advise you on the best way to utilize your available design space, you need to remember that they are not psychic or mind-readers. You need to have selected a few examples of what message you want to convey in your home office environment and then build onto that message from there. Knowing what design style you want your office to have is as important as selecting the office equipment that makes sure it operates effectively.

  • Do You Know Your Timeframe For The Project?

You always need to make sure that your ideal timeframe is properly communicated to your decorator before you break ground on the project. They are, after all, the professionals here with the most amount of experience in this industry. They will be able to tell you if you’re being realistic or not. PureModern will assist with all of your home office dreams and make them a reality for you.

  •  Do You Have Your Questions Prepared?

Before you meet with any potential new decorators, you need to make sure you have your list of questions nailed down. Find out what services they offer, what qualifications they have, how long they have worked in the design industry, and anything else you may want to know about them. Take a few photos of design inspirations that appeal to you, that way they can tell you if they will be able to assist you. It is important that you are straight-forward and honest, your decorator needs to know exactly what look you are trying to achieve.

  • Have You Chosen The Right Decorator?

Make sure you see examples of their work beforehand. Look online for examples of their past projects as well as reviews of their services. You need to know if they are known for sticking to budgets and timelines or not. A good interior decorator will have access to a wealth of resources for their projects that extends beyond their direct input, like good contractors and reliable furniture and décor suppliers.
