The interior designers are experts in taking any project irrespective of its size and turning it into the one that resembles the taste and style of the owner.
3. Interior Designing is not essential
Another question that pops up in our minds while deciding on the interior designing is that if it’s at all required? To answer the question, let’s understand about the basic ingredients of Interior Designing. An interior designer puts extensive efforts in deciding on the color theme, the furniture style & size, the upholstery, the decor and the space management.
The right mix of all the above elements sums up to the beautiful home that you had always thought of. This makes Interior Designing more of science than art. The right colors, the appropriate material & fabric of your furniture, the suitable texture are all selected by the interior designers based on your likings, lifestyle and family requirements.

4. Interior Designing can be done by self
There is no doubt that you can’t design your home yourself. The question is whether it would be the right decision or not?
Interior designers spend a lot of time studying about various aspects of designing and creativity. They are the subject matter experts when it comes to designing and making the best utilization of the available space. They are experienced, have practical knowledge of handling various projects, designing in tight schedules and negotiating with the sellers. Thus, it is always wiser to let the experts take care of designing the most valuable possession of your life.
5. A contractor can also design my house
This is the most common and grossly misunderstood notion that a contractor can be given the additional responsibility of designing the house.
A contractor is an expert in constructing buildings, understanding the material used and managing labour in a way that the project is finished in the given timelines. His knowledge of designing is as good as that of a layman. Giving this responsibility will not only bring disaster to the aesthetics of the house but will also damage the core functionality of the contractor i.e. delivering a desired structure on time.
An interior designer acts as a guide to help you meet your dream home. With the introduction of various technologies (like AI, AR & VR), it is now all the easier and required to make the best use of them while deciding your home interiors. Don’t allow others to distract you in your journey of happiness and bliss by getting a designer house you deserve.
