When the film industry portray an “interior designer” images of Martin Short as Franck Eggelhoffer, the neurotic designer from Father of the Bride II come to mind. Designers’ are often portrayed as people who are egocentric, expensive and who spend their day going around say “darling” and throwing cushions around. This description could not be further from the truth. A qualified interior designer is a mine of information, contacts and your money saver. They are your co-ordinator, designer, creative thinker and budget controller. Certainly not terms generally seen as associated with the profession.
It has been shown that people make up their minds within seconds of seeing a property as too whether they wish to purchase it. An instant emotional attachment will mean that the buyer will over look any other defect however if the appeal is missing they will only identify with the negatives of the property. It is important that when you are selling your home that you look at it from the eyes of a prospective buyer. As you are emotionally attached to your home it is often better to have someone without any connection with the home to critically analyse it. The obvious only become obvious once it is pointed out for eg, weeds growing in the pavers of the driveway, the old favourite chair that has seen better days being on display when you enter the front door.
