Q: What does an interior designer do?

While it’s true that your interior designer will help you choose fabrics and paint samples, that’s only a small part of what will be happening.

Q: Does an interior designer need to be local?

There are several excellent interior designers at the Lake of the Ozarks and businesses who can help you take your home to the next level - but you aren’t restricted to hiring locally. If you already have someone you love using where your primary residence is, or you even know of someone halfway across the country, chances are strong that they will be able to help you as well. Many interior designers work out of state, so keep your eyes open and know that distance knows no bounds.

Q: What types of education do interior designers go through?

Some of the most popular are the rigors certifications that they work through and receive.

Q: What types of software will designers use?

Interior designers are now well versed in the most modern technology for interior design. This can include AutoCAD, and other tools for space planning, codes, and so on.

Q: Does a designer have to tackle my entire home?

Whether you want a complete redesign or just a new space in one room - your designer will be able to help both large or small. Just because you aren’t building a brand new home or planning to buy all brand new furniture doesn’t mean that an interior designer can help you create your space.
