Prostir86 conducted a poll asking the question: “What is your first thought when you hear the word ‘designer’?”. The most popular answers are as the following: a designer is an artist, a designer means creativity and activity in combination, a designer is associated with a comfortable house, a designer means creativity, style and fantasy, a designer is his IDEAS. The first thing people imagine about a professional designer is something like a pretty interior image. It is strange that no one imagines constant repairs, installation work or endless drawings, but that is exactly what designers do – they bring to life the dreams of people thanks to their knowledge, experience and talent.
Top 5 arguments
Why it is not enough to have a good taste to be a designer
1. Developing an idea
An interior designer is your personal psychologist, who can help you realize the most daring ideas in life. Even if you have read a lot of information before repairing, traveled a lot, or seen interesting interior design, the designer has to deal with it every day. The perception of any material goes through the lens of visual outlook, and then the artist as accumulate new ideas. You need to have the skils, the desire and the awareness of your choice to be a true designer.
2. Designer’s foresight
The designer always knows how to properly combine ergonomics, functionality and aesthetics in a particular project. The skills of space organization and the professional foresight help to create an interior that can withstand changes over time (durability of materials, growing up of children, the emergence of new technology).
3. Design and experience
The designer executes a complete package of drawings, which is one of the hardest parts of the job. This requires knowledge of construction processes and ability to work in professional computer programs. By the way, the designer will help you to calculate your budget before the repairing begins. He will tell you what you need but what you don’t need to save money on.
4. Creating harmony
A designer is your guide to the modern world. He is always in trend because he knows which things will never lose relevance. The perfect project is well thought and suits your lifestyle. Harmony is created only when properly executed design meets all ergonomic, moral and aesthetic requirements of the customer.

5. The project implementation process
A designer knows what materials to choose and where to find them, as well as how to get discounts that will save your money. When it comes to a selection of decoration materials or furniture, a designer will ease the problem of choice because he will know exactly what you need.
Designing and implementing a project is hard work. Even if you have a great taste, the lack of experience you have as a designer will turn the repair into a complete mess. Everyone has to do their own business, and the amount of work a designer does сonceals many unprecedented problems that cannot be solved without the help of a specialist, but there are even more small tasks that also have something to do with.
Why do you need a designer if your taste is so good?
“Perhaps this is the most popular question.” In general, we ourselves know everything so why do we invite a designer? “Or” Draw us a plan of sockets, and then we ourselves … “. A professional designer has a complex attiude to work. I will briefly describe the process. The first thing is getting to know each other, finding mutual understanding and prioritizing. The second is to develop a unique and individual concept of interior design specifically for you.The third is the preparation of technical documentation, in which everything is taken into account and foreseen, starting with functionality and ending with expediency. And the last is a competent implementation of the project without omissions and mistakes. If you decide to repair premises on your own , then you must aware the whole number of processes up to the organization of construction. Often, people who are already tired and exhausted at the last stage are calling and literally screaming for help. I consciously refuse to do this work because there is nothing worse than correcting others’ mistakes. And it is so “sweet” to hear them complaining that they most of all they want to go through this nightmare called “repair!!!”. I spend all my life on the construction sites, I have to admit that I enjoy this process. So in conclusion – do not complicate your life, trust the experts who know their business! “
