Everyone wants to live in Pinterest Home
Everyone wants a home where they can feel most comfortable and be their best selves. We also can’t deny the fact that we would want our homes to be as picture-perfect as those interior pics that can be found on Pinterest. There’s something about an aesthetically pleasing interior that lightens the ambiance and makes it a place for peace not only for you but even for the people who come visit.

And we get it, hiring an Interior designer can be pricey. And while we would dream of getting that perfect space, it’s understandable to want to spend less, especially for those just starting out. So here’s the greatest question: Should you hire an interior designer?
Why do you want to hire an Interior Designer?
First off, let’s first narrow down what made you have the idea of hiring an Interior Designer! It could be any of these lines:
I want to hire an Interior Designer because…
• I don’t know my style
• I know what I like but don’t know where to start
•I have no time a bit overwhelming
• I want to make my home perfect that all of my guests will have a good time here
If you said yes to any of the lines above, let’s talk about how you can find the perfect Interior Designer. Finding the right interior designer is like finding the right massage therapist. There are key factors to consider:
Check if you like the techniques and the skills they have to incorporate in their work.
Pop on a call and see if there’s any chemistry between the both of you. Do you think they’ll be able to solve your problem or are they just showing off their works?
Most importantly, do their packages fit your style and budget for this?
It's like how a massage therapist can perfectly locate your pain points and focus on massaging them, and if they are able to do that, you know they are the right one for you. Similarly, when you can see how a designer can find the solutions to fix the problems you have and they can provide the best one possible, then they are the interior designer that will suit you best.
Still not sure whether to hire one or not? We’ve narrowed down some pros and cons for you!
