How to Choose the Right Interior Designer?

With so many interior designers on the market, it's hard to know if you're choosing the right one for you. Panacche is here to help make the decision a little less daunting by preparing you with these easy-to-follow steps.

Determine Your Project

First, determine the type of project you'd like an interior designer to work on. You'll want a clear idea of what the project entails, so you can find a designer best suited for the job.

If you can, identify your personal style, which will also help narrow down the choice pool. If you're unsure which direction to take a certain project, find someone willing to work with you to pinpoint which style works best for you.

Ask The Right Questions

When it comes to meeting with a designer for a consultation, don't shy away from asking any questions you may have. If you need to, prepare your questions ahead of time and get specific.

We suggest asking questions about a designer's preferences, availability, work process, problem-solving and budget. Their responses and the way they respond will help you get a feel for if their work and communication style matches what you need.

Set a Budget

Speaking of a budget, what you're willing to spend on a designer will help narrow down your search. Interior design expenses have extreme ranges, so keep an open mind to varying costs. You'll be surprised to find out how far your money can go when you choose a service like Panacche.

Look At Their Previous Work

Is experience something that's important to you? Get some background on your designer's experiences by taking a look at their previous work. A designer's portfolio will show you if their past finished products align with your vision. An education or certification can also be a plus when searching for a knowledgeable designer.

Panacche's team of industry-vetted designers are some of the best in the business. Put your mind at ease knowing you can trust the process from experienced professionals.

If you're open to working with someone with less experience, you can find some great talent in up-and-coming designers. This could also be a way to save on your budget while helping out a new business, but keep in mind even those starting out deserve fair pay and the same respect as anyone else.
