Interior Designers in Dallas Texas -By Foran Interior Design

What four traits do the best interior designers in Dallas have in common?

1. Design talent and experienced – Interior Designers Dallas Texas

Nothing is more important than talent in the design field. Talent is not something you learn.  It is something you are born with and grows with design experience. An experienced interior designer knows what materials are best for every use.  For example, what type of leather will hold up best for heavy usage, or what fabrics will fade with southern exposure?

An experienced professional designer will have seen many different situations and be able to advise you on the best solution for your unique problem. This not only comes from talent but also from experience in handling various issues.

 2. Good Communication

After asking many questions, the designer will be able to tell what you like as well as what you dislike.  They will know whether you want traditional, transitional, modern, or mid-century.

The best interior designers will ask questions about your dreams and needs.  They will not just talk about their style.

An expert designer will design around you and your family.  They will ask how you will be using the space. They will pick fabrics and colors that are the ones you love.

3. Hire a design expert

Expertise is significant in the design field.  For example, you must know proper spacing when planning a floor plan or space. You must know whether you have room for a buffet in your dining room and still have enough space to pull out your dining room chairs. Another important thing for a professional is what furniture companies are of the best quality and value.  

These are just a few examples of an expert’s expertise. Every job is different and has unique challenges that require knowledge in the design field.

Expertise is something you gain from experience and education. The field of interior design is constantly changing, and a professional must keep up to date with new ideas and materials. Professional members of ASID must attend continuing education classes as part of their membership.

4. Pay Attention to the Details

Getting all the details right takes a certain kind of person.  Somebody who wants to do things the right way.  Somebody who cares about each project as if it was their own.  You must be thinking about how each decision affects another.  The best designers must be right-brain and left-brain thinkers.

An experienced interior designer can see the room as it will be.  They can see the room as you have imagined it.

In summary, four things will help you choose the right designer.

You will want to hire someone who has talent and experience.

Hire someone who is a good listener as well as a great communicator.

Hire someone who is a design expert.

You will want to hire someone who pays close attention to detail.
