Interior designers make indoor spaces functional, safe, and beautiful by determining space requirements and selecting essential and decorative items, such as colors, lighting, and materials.

As a luxury interior designer in Claremont, California, at SARA ARNDT INTERIOR DESIGN, INC., I understand the importance of having a proficient design team for your renovation or remodel. The team you select can make or break the success of your project. With my years of experience in the industry, I have learned that there are a few essential steps you can take to ensure you hire the right team for your project.

Step 1: Gather Referrals

The first step in hiring a proficient design team is to gather referrals from friends, family, and colleagues. This will give you a starting point to work from and help you to narrow down your options. Once you have a few referrals, contact the interior designer first and ask about the team they bring to the project. This can include a general contractor, sub-contractors, and artists.

Step 2: Make Calls

After you have gathered referrals, make calls to the referred professional designers. Remember to have as much information about what you intend to construct/design as possible, including your budget. This will help you find the appropriate designer for your needs.

Step 3: Look for Experience and a Team

Look for someone who understands your needs, has experience, and has a team to undertake your project. It’s great to have someone local on-site if any issues arise and to meet contractors on-site to give directions.

Step 4: Begin with the Designer

Once you make your selection, begin with the designer creating the plan. The designer will have contracts and retainer information for you and will bring in the rest of the contractors, sub-contractors, and artists for team meetings.

Step 5: Let Go and Trust the Designer

Take a deep breath and remember you hired a design professional for a reason. Let them do their job and take excellent care of you and your project. If you can let go, you will be happier than you ever imagined. We have nearly unlimited options and choices for your project, and it’s our job to ensure you don’t make costly mistakes.

Step 6: Enjoy the Process

Finally, enjoy the process! Give all of your input and flavor so the end product feels like you. Be yourself. Be fabulous. Have a great design.

In conclusion, hiring a proficient design team is crucial in ensuring a successful renovation or remodel project. With these essential steps, you can select the right designer and team for your needs and enjoy the process of creating your dream space. As a luxury interior designer in Claremont, California, I am committed to providing my clients with the best possible design team and experience.
