We ran across this infographic by In Style Modern analyzing the benefits of hiring an interior designer, versus the benefits of redesigning a home for yourself. According to the photo below, some of the main advantages of DIY are flexibility to change, easy plan adjustments, budget control, family time, trying out new experiences and of course, satisfaction for doing things for yourself. On the other hand, if you do decide to hire an interior designer, you can just sit back, relax and watch a person with an expertise do the rest. An interior designer has the ability to envision a full picture, has plenty of contacts in the industry (which leads to efficiency) and makes use of state-of-the-art methods for planning a room. The infographic also presents some interesting facts. For example, did you know that 47% of Americans haven’t updated their interior decor in the last five years, while only 20% of Americans are actually happy with their home design?
