What Is An Interior Designer?

Simply put, an interior designer is someone with an education and background in interior design who plans and orchestrates your vision of a room layout. An interior designer can take your ideas and turn them into beautiful realities, no matter how rough or polished.

While many people may only be concerned with the price or quality of a sofa, an interior designer will focus more on the overall look of your room with your furniture. A designer will ensure that your sectional compliments your other furniture and the color scheme of the room.

Designers can match furniture by colors or help you match colors and patterns on custom furniture designs that will guarantee that your space is both stylish and unique. In addition, designers will help you match accessories such as side tables, ottomans, coffee tables, table lamps, floor lamps, and more.  

If you don’t have the time or energy to put a room design together, an interior designer can take care of that for you and help you find a room design you will love. Designers have the training and skills necessary to create a floor plan for your space to help you get the room of your dreams.

What Does An Interior Designer Do?

An interior designer’s job is to think of all the little things that the average renter or homeowner may overlook. You may not be thinking about the foot traffic patterns and lighting levels in your room, but your designer will.

Designers have a massive amount of knowledge on room layout, color theory, furniture style, design trends, and mood lighting, and they will use all of that knowledge to create a space that you will be proud to call your own.

At Furniture Fair, our designers offer complimentary in-home design consultations to anyone buying furniture from our showroom. A design consultation lets the designer visit, take measurements, collect color swatch samples, and give an overall evaluation to your space so they can help you plan for the best design.

Once the designer has a plan for your space, they will show you a digital mockup to better visualize where your furniture will go and what your new room will look like. After you give final approval, the designer will put in your order and then visit your home on delivery day to ensure that your room matches the design.

How Can An Interior Designer Benefit You?

Interior designers can help you save both time and money, and here’s how. When you buy your furniture by the piece or from multiple sources, you risk accidentally getting furniture with contrasting styles.

An interior designer keeps track of the bigger picture and ensures that you aren’t spending any unnecessary money or time on furniture or accessories that won’t work within your space. When you create a plan with an interior designer, you can prevent the potential to overspend on unnecessary items.

How Can I Schedule An Interior Designer For My Home?

Are you interested in having an interior designer create a plan for your living room, bedroom, dining area, or other living space? At Furniture Fair, the process is as simple as visiting one of our showrooms located throughout the Cincinnati, Dayton, and Louisville areas.

After visiting, speak with a salesperson or a designer and tell them that you are interested in meeting with an interior design specialist. Meeting with a designer in-store lets you and your designer familiarize yourself with the style and look you are going for while checking out products you might want in your space.

Alternatively, you can schedule an appointment online or by phone to find a good time to meet with them and start planning your new space. If you have an idea of the design style you are looking for, visual references such as photo examples and photos of furniture you already own are excellent for helping you and your designer get on the same page.
