The Number One Reason You Need to Hire an Interior Designer

Interior Designer - Krista standing in front of new build home in NW Calgary.

Why should you hire an interior designer? Here comes our shameless plug, right? Not this time. We’re not going to plug our services and technical knowhow in this blog – much. You wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t know you need a designer, so we’re just going to talk to you and make you fall in love with us. We’re not vain – confident in our service offering, but not vain. We simply know a well-kept secret. Come in close and we’ll whisper it to you… When you truly care for people, they reciprocate those feelings. We know, it’s not earthshattering news on the face of it. But it’s a skill we’ve developed to be able to listen hard to our clients and understand their mode of operations. It’s the most important ingredient in our interior design recipe.

Krista has had a love affair with interior design for over 20 years and she’s not bored yet!

She eats, drinks, and dreams design and she’s imparted that passion to all of us at KHD. When you’re tired of looking at yet another tile sample, we are there to narrow your selections and keep you excited about the vision and possibilities. If you’re unsure about a path to take, we’ve already been down that trail, scouted it for you, and come back with the straightest route meant for you. We facilitate your love story with your home because there is nothing more important to us than being there to help you through this invigorating process.

Above all else, we care about you. We don’t just learn your family’s names to keep you all straight in our mind (including your pets – yes, even your hamster). We get to know you as a whole person with goals, aspirations, and dreams. We are just as excited about your milestones being realized as you are to share your news. Your pride is our pride as your children serenade us with their classical piano pieces. Our hearts grow with each moment of joy you experience. Because of this authentic love for you, we can delve into your psyche and create a nest that represents who you are now and where you are going. Very likely in ways you never thought could be expressed through physical form and space.

Interior designers handle the details so you can enjoy the beauty of the process.

Of course we must still deal with the technical and logistical answer to the question of why you should hire an interior designer. Interior design is not simply selecting patterns, paint chips and furniture. It is a gigantic undertaking of trade quotes, construction budgets, and timelines. Though you may have an eye for design and a truly breathtaking vision, the reality of the massive amount of organization and finer details can drain the fun out of the creative process for many. Unless all facets of the design process bring you satisfaction (like they do us) your priority should be to focus on ensuring you are smashing your personal life goals and creating lasting memories. Interior designers are a delicate balance of creative and hyper-organized individuals, so we delight in creating order out of chaos.

Think of our team as confidants whom you allow into your life and home. We do not take that privilege lightly. With respect for your privacy, belongings, budget, and time, we are there to help you grow and nestle into the life you want. We take the worry out of if the exquisite lighting fixtures will arrive before the electrician is scheduled on site to install them. Our transparent and knowledgeable process eliminates deviations in budget due to timeline errors. We are ready to be your collaborators and allies in this, one of the largest endeavours a homeowner can embark. We recognize these are just words typed up on a screen and this is entirely impersonal. We’re much better in person or over a Zoom chat where we can connect in a meaningful way. Let’s talk about why Krista Hermanson Design & Construction should be your interior designer for your next renovation project.
