If you're looking to design a carefully curated residence that reflects your personality, the best way to go about it is with a reliable designer. You can explain to them what you want so that a plan is created and a budget is established at the very beginning. These professionals will see to the necessary details and bring your home to a state of perfection.

However, working with a designer may be the last thing on your mind as there is so much negativity about these professionals and the process behind what they do. This is because home décor reality shows and others have created false concepts of how interior designing works. This misinformation promotes distrust among clients and professionals, preventing the former from getting what they want. To steer you clear of these misconceptions, Stephanie Casey Interiors has debunked three of the most widely believed myths about interior design.

Myth 1: Hiring an interior designer is going to be expensive
This is not true! Some projects take weeks, and others can be completed in an hourly consultation. We offer various services, starting with an hourly consultation and other design packages with specific hours. Moreover, given our connections with décor vendors, we can pass along discounts to you!

Myth 2: I need to wait until after building or moving into my new home
Sometimes people want to “see” the finished space before they decorate it. But, imagine this, you complete a home renovation and hire an interior designer afterward, the designer selects a beautiful wallpaper for your powder room. But to hang the wallpaper, you would have to remove the sconces that had just been installed, and that would require extra time and money. When the architect, contractor or builder, and interior designer all collaborate from the beginning, you have a much easier and faster process that is more personalized to you.

Myth 3: I can do it on my own
HGTV makes DIYs look so easy! Yes, you can definitely do your interior design on your own, but it may end up costing you more and taking you five times as long! An experienced interior designer can help you select the materials and furniture that fit your budget and refer quality contractors to get your project done right the first time! They also have years of experience that will help keep your project moving forward and stay on track.
