Why you need an Interior Designer, and what to expect

Interior Design Advice

We’ve all seen the TV shows that renovate a property almost instantaneously. Without the magic of television, the reality is quite different and there are plenty of pitfalls for the unwary.

For results that will last for years, work with an experienced interior designer and choose a specialist renovator with a reputation for great workmanship and attention to detail. This makes good economic sense, and the best news is you don’t need a Hollywood budget to do it.

The benefits of working with an Interior Designer

An interior designer is a professional with a trained eye, the experience to know whether there’s something wrong or right with a space, and importantly the best way to fix it. Talking through your project with an interior design specialist provides peace of mind and can save you time and money.

Transforming your home can be complex

An experienced interior designer sees the big picture and understands how to avoid common design mistakes. They are across things you may overlook, like how doors open, the best cabinetry options, lighting solutions and the placement of power points.

They will work with you from concept to completion of the project, delivering a result that flows throughout the property, coordinating and complementing the features you wish to retain or incorporate.

Draw on years of experience

At SilQ Interiors, our in-house interior designers are based in Perth. They understand the local market and know all the tricks of the trade. They’re your first point of contact and there to guide you through the process, advise you on where to focus your budget and provide you with original design ideas.

Adding value through innovative design

Creating a new bathroom or kitchen improves liveability and can add value to your home. Because these rooms are central to our lifestyle and comfort it’s not surprising that they are the most popular bathroom renovations. Working with an experienced designer allows you to maximise the space that you have, build in innovative space or time saving features that compliment your lifestyle.

The process

Many renovators list stress as the worse aspect of any project. Negotiating with builders, dealing with onsite trades and even picking out the right tiles, cabinetry and tap-ware is time consuming and daunting.

The SilQ interior design team will work with you to identify all of your must haves. They will talk you through the latest trends and discuss the options. Once you’ve agreed the design and budget, they will produce drawings, provide a quote, prepare plans and help you through any council approvals process. They can also assist you to dress the room to maximise the visual impact and functionality once the structural work is complete.
