So, you think you want to hire a designer?  Well, Luxe Interiors is the perfect place to start.  And, so that you feel entirely comfortable with the process, allow us to disprove those misconceptions, explain what we need from you and walk you through the basics of hiring a designer.

Misconception #1:  It will cost you more to hire a designer.

The truth is, it can actually be more cost effective.  It is our job to stay within your budget and keep the project on track.  We have a trove of sources at our fingertips, hitting every price point and style.  We can tell you where to spend, where to save and most importantly, we will keep you from making a rash decision that eventually leads to regret.

Misconception #2:  We don’t care what you want.

This is a collaboration.  If you aren’t happy, we haven’t done our job.  We have no intention of railroading your ideas for the sake of our own.  We are simply here to guide your vision.  We value your wishes and have the knowledge and skill to make them come true.

As the client, I think its vitally important that you be prepared.  So, take these steps to get ready for your first meeting.

Know your needs:  how do you envision the room?

Having a basic wishlist enables you to get everything you want.  Knowing what you need as far as comfort, storage, and function is key.  Don’t hesitate to rip pictures out of magazines, grab paint colors that inspire you, pull together artwork that you love.  These are the stepping stones to building a look and the better we understand you, the better we succeed.

Know your budget.

Be honest with your designer when you talk about budget.  Just because you give a figure doesn’t mean that’s what needs to be spent.  It sets a parameter and allows us to get to work sourcing pieces that will fit within that guideline.  There is nothing worse than falling in love with a design that is wildly out of your range.  So trust in our ability to be kind to your pocketbook.  We are in the business of customer satisfaction and we work hard to make sure your investment is exactly what you hoped it would be.

As designers at Luxe Interiors, we can offer you this:

Training.  Schooling and years of on the job experience have taught us to know what works and what doesn’t.  We understand lighting, color, space and scale.  All the things that are key to making your room look and feel the way it was meant to.  All of this to save you headaches, money and regret.

Ease.  No one has the time or desire to handle the multiple phone calls that will happen between contractors, subs, customer service representatives and other vendors.  But we do.  That’s what we do.  Your project will flow with ease.  And even with all the backstage chaos, you will be left to think the execution was flawless.  We are magicians.

Planning.  Without a plan, there is disappointment.  It is our job to be very detailed.  Adhering to a budget, mastering the functionality of the room, and executing the vision is what we are always prepared to do.  This allows us to get you everything you need while eliminating any surprises that may get in the way.

Reliable sources and contacts.  We have cultivated trusting relationships with vendors, contractors, subs, and beyond.  We know who to call and where to get what you need.  We take the guesswork out of the entire project, leaving you feeling confident and in control.
