Whether you’re just moving in or redecorating your home, the process of creating a look you’ll love can be extremely intimidating. There are so many details to keep in mind, including lighting, space, color, pattern, texture, and functionality. Where does one even begin?
If you are overwhelmed by this process, but worry that getting professional help from a designer is far outside your budget, think again. You can find help with virtual interior design services at a variety of price points – which means you’ll definitely be able to find one that fits into your budget. Here’s the lowdown.
When you sign up with one of these services, like Havenly, they typically begin with the acquisition of facts, details, and preferences from clients. Usually, you will take a style quiz, to help the designers understand what kind of look you’re going for, and then you’ll submit information about the measurements of your room, the placement of windows, the amount of light, and the existing furniture you intend to keep in the room. Some of these services provide apps that allow you to photograph or scan rooms, which takes care of the measurements for you.
After that, you’ll receive a design plan that will outline how you can arrange and decorate your space. Most services’ prices allow clients to request a limited amount of adjustments or revisions in order to get exactly what you want, and some provide the furniture and décor so you can directly purchase everything you’ll need.
These services come in a wide variety of pricing, which means even the most limited budget can afford a little design help. Pottery Barn offers the cheapest service: free! Or you can spend up to several hundred dollars through other services like Modsy.
The Pros & Cons
While it’s true that virtual design services, such as Spacejoy, don’t have the same level of one-on-one interaction and attention to detail that a traditional designer would offer, they are likely going to revolutionize the interior design industry thanks to the quality of service and accessible pricing that makes it possible for anyone to get a little help with their interior design needs. They feature top-notch professional designers and are invested in client satisfaction.
