Best Interior Decorators Near You

Interior Decorating Services In Your Area

Interior decorators, contrary to popular belief, are not the same as interior designers. If you are looking for someone to make a room more functional and offer recommendations about things like knocking down walls, you need a designer. However, if you need help selecting a room paint color, adding accessories like drapes and rugs, and choosing furniture, a decorator fits the bill.

When choosing an interior decorator for your home project, there are several advantages to choosing someone nearby including:

  • Knowledge of the Area: A local decorator may know more about the interior style of homes in your neighborhood, which means they can help your home stand out from the rest (particularly if you're trying to boost buyer appeal to sell).
  • Local Contacts: Decorators can be a resource if you need to hire contractors for a related service (like carpenters, flooring installers, and electricians). They may be able to recommend other local contractors which can save you money on those other services.
  • Budget-conscious: Because a decorator near you may be more familiar with your area, they also know how to maxmimize your return on investment without going overboard. They know, for example, not to make your interior so extravagant that you have to price your home way above comps in your neighborhood.

"Patty of Lux Designs was very professional and provided excellent design suggestions. I would never have thought of the rug that she suggested, as it is more modern than I am used to, but it is perfect for the room, adds some needed color, and complements the drapes she had made. "

"Katherine initially takes time to understand your needs & wants, prior to infusing her experience and design talents into suggestions and options for your consideration. She was extremely easy to work with, and kept the lines of communication open throughout the project, which is always a high priority in any home improvement project. Her contractors do beautiful work, are very helpful and considerate, and cleaned the work site daily before leaving. At the conclusion of our recreation room renovation and total furniture replacement, Katherine left us with an absolutely breathtaking room that we love. My wife and I would highly recommend Katherine to anyone considering a home improvement project that calls for interior design work. Should we plan another interior project in the future, our first phone call will be to Katherine."

"Picking out paint colors for an entire house is kore stressful than one would think. Throw in a tight time line, home renovations, a full time job, and young kids and I was overwhelmed. Laurie focused directly in on my style and helped pick out colors I am really excited about. She was easy to work with, patient with the chaos around her, and listened to what my husband and I like and don t like. I would use her again for sure. "
