Having a picturesque, magazine ready home is both incredible and attainable. For some, it’s a matter of finding pieces and decor that are low-maintenance and can easily be kept organized. Our award-winning Milwaukee interior designers have tons of great ideas to transform the spaces in your home and work to bring warmth and style mixed with function. Here are a few things to consider before you get started working with a designer at our Milwaukee furniture store showroom.
Determine your style
It’s not easy for most people to articulate, or say in words, what their personal style is. A great way to show the designer what types of things you like is by compiling a book or binder of magazine clippings, fabrics, photos, or other design inspirations that catch your eye. By doing this, a designer can more easily grasp the look you are going for and can better serve you. If they’re working from scratch, it’s more difficult for them to pinpoint pieces that you’ll like. The goal of the designer is to create a space you love, so seeing other things you love will make the process easier for both of you!
Be open to change
Part of a designer’s job is to make a space functional. If, when they enter your home, a designer feels that spaces aren’t being utilized to their full potential, they may suggest a room swap or re-purpose. The best thing to do is be open and willing to embrace the change. In the end it’s your decision, but the designer brings to the table a lot of experience and knowledge. After all, they’re trying to make life easier for you!
Look for inspiration everywhere
In addition to making a book of things you love, it’s a good idea to look for inspiration everywhere you go. Maybe you love the comfy sectional at your best friend’s house, or the light fixtures at the trendy boutique in the city. Whatever the case may be, it helps both you and the designer to visualize real-life applications of design elements.
