Re: Re: What does an interior designer do?
Say you get to the stage where you have a drawing of how your rooms will look and the designer has picked out the fabrics, paints and furniture. Now you can either walk away and do it yourself, buying the materials yourself and hiring contractors for the hard parts or you can just tell the interior designer to organise all this.
If you choose the latter then the interior designer has to manage the contractors and find the best deals for the materials. If you are happy with this and trust the designer then that’s OK. You could get screwed if the designer is unethical and chooses materials and workers based on the commission she can earn from them rather than the best people for the job. At worst they could lie to you about prices and the quality of materials used.
