I AM BUILDING A NEW HOME, I HAVE HIRED AN ARCHITECT AND A BUILDER, BUT THE ARCHITECT HAS SUGGESTED I HIRE AN INTERIOR DESIGNER. WHY DO I NEED AN INTERIOR DESIGNER IF I HAVE AN ARCHITECT?
Architects work with clients to design structures and oversee the building process, ensuring that the plans are executed properly. The architect is responsible for the structural integrity of the home.
Interior designers meet with the client and the architect to integrate the building’s structural features with the interior elements of the home to enhance the way the client will use the space. They are professionally trained in space planning and consider the homeowners’ personalities, special needs, entertaining style, color palettes, passions, and a host of other factors to bring the interior to life in a way that is welcoming, functional, and aesthetically pleasing. It is up to the designer to translate the client’s lifestyle and family needs into a well-designed and executed interior.
