Can I afford an Interior Designer?

Updated: Sep 6, 2023

When is the right time to hire an interior designer and can I afford it?

These are two questions that often come hand in hand. Often when people contact us, they need us to start asap. Luckily with our team and sister company ‘Oh my paint and Design’ and other trade contacts we can deliver amazing results in often a short deadline. Also If you are short of time, a good solution is our 3 hour design a room service.

In answer to this, in the long run can you afford not too?

Hiring us starts at £360 for a room design. This will take 3 hours of your time. Alternatively you have to think about how long it would take you to design a room independently. The reality is, it takes a huge amount of your time.

Think of all the things you need to create even a simple, small lounge space:

- Colour scheme, walls ceiling and woodwork

- Flooring and flooring types

- Sofas

- Tables

- Storage

- Lighting

- Cushions, often various styles

- Rugs

- Positioning

- Blinds

- Wall art

- Switches

- Fire place

- Media unit

- Sockets

That’s 15 things already potentially taking 15 hours at least of your time if you did this by yourself!

It’s also very easy to make mistakes that you will regret. Do you really want to spend a small fortune on choosing the wrong lights? This then becomes an extremely expensive mistake.

Think how easy it will be letting someone else make these important decisions for you. If you would like to discuss your next interiors project with us then drop us a message. We offer design packages and consultancy across Berkshire and beyond!
