We do more than picking cushions...

There is often a big misconception about what Interior Designers do and many people are surprised to learn there is more to our job than picking colours and cushions, although that is the fun part!

Whether you are looking to re-design a single room, or you are taking on a large renovation project, hiring a professional Interior Designer might seem out of reach or just 'not worth it'. However, working with a professional Interior Designer will have a huge amount of benefits to your project, let me tell you 5 reasons why.

“Interior Designers have access to a wide range of reputable and luxury brands...”

1. We will save you money

The fee for an Interior Designer is an investment. You are investing your money into designing your dream home, and hiring an Interior Designer will help you save on that investment. How?

Firstly, we will help you avoid costly mistakes. With our knowledge and expertise, we will ensure every detail is thought about, the space is meticulously planned and you end up with a completed project that fits perfectly with your lifestyle. We even cover the smaller details, which are often thought about once the room is complete, such as 'why didn't I think about having a plug socket there?'. Say goodbye to buying multiple paint colours because you can't find the right one, or ordering furniture that doesn't fit or complement the design. We have that all in hand too. Thoughtful design, with you in mind.

Secondly, Interior Designers have access to a wide range of reputable and luxury brands, so you know your home is being designed with quality in mind. And often, these items can be purchased via an Interior Designer at trade prices, giving you even more savings!

2. We will save you time (and stress)

Your dream home doesn't have to just be a dream, we can make it a reality for you. When planning a project, it can often be overwhelming, where do you start?

Hiring an Interior Designer will take this stress away from you. Hinton House Interiors will plan your project from start to finish, so no time is wasted wondering where to start or how to start. Even our e-design packages include a detailed shopping list; so you can be confident that the everything you order will work perfectly together.

And if your project requires construction work, then no need to worry about finding the right trades, Hinton House Interiors has got that covered too. We are partnered with Hinton House Construction, a local building firm with over 20 years experience in residential and new build construction. We can work together to create your dream home and take away the stress of managing multiple trades.

3. We are trained and continue to train

When working with Hinton House Interiors you can be confident that we have undertaken some of the best training available, and continue to do so. We live and breathe interior design. Having a trained eye for detail, taking time to listen to our clients needs and over15 years of project management and property renovation experience means that you'll be getting a wealth of knowledge and experience when working with Hinton House Interiors. We are passionate about keeping up-to-date with the latest in the interior design industry, foraging new and high-end relationships to benefit our clients and undertaking regular courses for our continued professional development. We are also registered with the British Institute of Interior Design.

4. We can help increase your homes value

Perhaps you are thinking of selling your home and want to achieve the maximum price possible? Having a well designed home will help achieve this. Hinton House Interiors can work with you to update your property to ensure it stands out above the competition.

5. So when should you engage with an Interior Designer?

ASAP! It's never too early to bring an Interior Design onboard. We work alongside Architects and can help bring a new perspective to potential build options. Spatial planning is our speciality, and we can help with electrical and lighting plans. We start with the bones and design from there.

However, if you've already started your project, we can still help, no project is too small, or big!

We can't wait to get started on your project and turning your dream into reality.

Until next week...
