What to Know About: Hiring an Interior Designer

April 27, 2023

Behind the Scenes, What to Know

An interior designer is a professional who specializes in the design of spaces and their furnishings. The field includes residential, commercial and hospitality design. Interior designers work with clients to create environments that are functional and aesthetically pleasing, as well as meet their needs for comfort, safety and style.

A good interior designer will help you choose furniture pieces that complement each other while also maximizing the function of your space effectively; they’ll take into account not only your personal tastes but also how you use your home.

Research and Planning

Before you hire an interior designer, it’s important to research the cost of hiring one. There are many factors that can affect the price of hiring an interior designer (including their experience and location). Many designers charge an hourly rate for their services.

At Studio Riggs, we charge flat design fees based on square footage. As a customer, I like to know exactly how much something is going to cost and I find that our clients feel the same way. Learn more about our process here.

Gathering the Right Team

Depending on the scope of your project, an interior designer may only be one member of your home improvement team. You may also need:

  • A builder or general contractor
  • An architect or landscape architect
  • An engineer
  • A surveyor

If you’ve decided to hire an interior designer, it’s important to know how to find the right person for your project. While there are many different types of designers, from artists and decorators to architects and landscape architects, each has their own specialties.

We specialize in creating spaces that encourage being together, and sourcing pieces that will go on to be future family heirlooms. Sound good? Contact us to get started.
