What Does an Interior Designer Do?

Designers will ask you about your budget, tastes, interests, and requirements for a given room. Taking into consideration any building codes or safety issues, they will tie together lighting, colors, artwork, and furniture and arrange it all in a way that looks appealing and allows for flow within the room. Designers are committed to your tastes and preferences. It doesn't matter what colors or styles they prefer. They work with the information you give them to create a finished product you'll find satisfying.

Your interior designer will draw up a plan and discuss it with you. Through his or her connections, the designer can usually recommend contractors, painters, suppliers, and other professionals to find the materials required or complete any remodeling that needs to be done as part of your chosen design.

Decorator vs. Designer

The terms "interior decorator" and "interior designer" are not interchangeable. These are two different professions, and the main difference between them is the level of education.

  • Interior Decorator: Becoming a decorator doesn't require any formal training, and they are not qualified to make structural changes to your home. They focus on decorative aspects: paint, wallpaper, window treatments, and so on.
  • Interior Designer: Designers have a college degree in something like interior design or interior architecture and have passed the National Council for Interior Design Qualification exam. Because of their education and knowledge about building codes and regulations, they can work with you to complete more complicated design projects.

Cost to Hire an Interior Designer

Hiring a designer will save you a lot of time and possibly a lot of money. Designers have all the necessary tools and equipment, so you won't have to buy anything that you'll never use again. The price range for interior designers is huge, partly because different designers use different price structures. The average cost of an interior designer, including materials and labor, is $5,592, though the price can range from $450 to $20,000.

"This is going to be a long and highly affirmative review. We knew 4 years ago we would renovate. We could not find a salesman that would really listen to our needs, design ideas and requests. Both of us previously had full equipped kitchens when we married. We kept everything because we liked it all. So our kitchen was VERY crowded. Our Remodel sales man : Chris Macey, actually listened and provided what WE wanted. Finally we had a place for everything. Now everything slides out w/ quiet close. A unique special addition was the "interior bay window". A window garden perfect for flowers, fresh herbs and spices and perfect for us. We finally had enough working spaces (5) for both of us to work in the kitchen simultaneously (gasp!). Even the dog has a feeding station. we have a dedicated "coffee station." I knew this job was going to be expensive, That's OK, we got top quality everything. Our Project Manager: Martin Slusarz, contacted us the next day to arrange for a meeting to review our selections and sign a contract. He offered some design insights that enhanced the concepts we had. He suggested we move the refrigerator across the room. It worked better for the over all design. So listen some times. Our top choice of cabinet design, hardware, pluming, 60-40 Sink, Marble counter tops, new LED recessed lighting sources in ceiling and under cabinets lights w/ individual control, outside exhaust Vent system, Prime glass Back Splash and Paint. It was all covered in specific detail and it hung together well as design. The Workers: Francisco, Crew head, Jose and Adam. I am really pleased with my crew. They were pleasant, industrious, skilled in the right way to do things. I know because I have 30+ years in construction and I know what should be done. The guys were like a ballet of skilled workers. Some times they would just get going and work as a team without speaking. I would sit in the next room (holding the dogs leash) and be able to watch their progress. They would keep in touch with calls, letting me know what their arrival schedule was for that day. I would make a daily to do list of questions and process. That was reviewed and my questions were answered. I am still very impressed with my crew. The down sides: There were a few schedule glitches in the process. The special order interior Bay Window was back ordered for weeks. Martin does not start a project until all the parts are in the shop. That kept the project on hold until after the New Year. We had a place for working storage. Demo was scheduled and it took only a few hours to empty out the space. Amazing. Just stay clear and let 'em work. FYI The install worked from the top down. All the upper cabs then the floor units. Electrical and Lighting were done at the same time. Once the lower cabs were installed the marble counter man came in to measure. Then there was a day or two break waiting for the custom counter top to come in. Surprise, they called on Friday evening asking if they could install the counter top on Saturday. Two guys did the marble counter top install. Flush, level, perfect work on a Saturday morning, The bay window arrived a few days later and it was delivered and installed by a specialist from the company. It was fun to watch it go in. Then the glass back splash was extended into the bay window and that became a cost plus item. Final comments: The Job is high quality, simple clean and understated design. Now everything has a home and somehow the Kitchen seems much bigger. That still amazes me. Double the cabinet space but more room? We are really please with the whole project. It was definitely not the low bid and I am quite glad we went with top/shelf, high quality everything. My brides final comment is she wants to adopt our crew. Offer your crew morning coffee and a clean place to eat lunch. That type of simple kindness pays off. Expe..."

"We signed with OHI Design last night after months of carefully looking for the right company to do our kitchen remodel. We were just about to go with another contractor and OHI was the last one we brought in. We were blown away and it was clear they were the right fit for us. It was one of those when you know you know situations. If you re looking for a company who s mission is to grow their brand the old fashioned way (Delivering a quality experience and product with lifelong experts passionate about their craft) this is your company. I can t wait to write another glowing review upon project completion. Bottom line. If you are doing a kitchen/bath remodel; give them an opportunity. You will see what I m talking about."

"Can't say enough!! Travis and Jarred were unbelievably knowledgeable and took the time to walk us through the process that we had never experienced. End result was nothing short of spectacular! We already have a few people on our street interested in using them. From the design, to recommended fixtures and materials through the expert workmanship to the prompt minor fixes at completion, we could not have hoped for anything better. Well done Geotek- value, price and workmanship were everything we had hoped and more!"

"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."

"Having moved many times with the military and Government, we have lots of experience with movers, unfortunately, many negative experiences. I did a lot of research before booking Campbells for our local move and it was a GREAT experience. We got 3 estimates from good companies and theirs was the lowest. It's a family owned and run business, which means they care about quality and reputation more than the big commercial companies. It showed. The estimator and managers were all friendly and had great customer service. They were flexible, as our move date had to be adjusted once the closing on our new house was finalized. The movers took great care in packing our items, wrapping our furniture, as well as loading/unloading and delivering in one day for our local move. All workers were very polite and asked us questions when necessary, rather than take a guess, and patiently handled our many questions as well. They moved very heavy furniture and items with great skill and expertise. We were very impressed. The move with this company was an exceptional experience, and we would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone."
