Online Interior Design (also known as e-Design) is an ever-growing service that provides many benefits for both the client and designer. Although some designers prefer in-person design, here at DVS, I understand that not everyone has the time for in-person meetings. Plus, online design has other advantages – it’s fast, easy, and accessible. Being able to accomplish your design goals with a click of a button while sitting in bed in your pajamas, that’s convenience at its best. If you’re ready to get great design and stay on your budget, keep reading to discover why online interior design can save you time and money.
1. You’ll Save Big on Designer Fees
This is likely where one of your biggest cost savings will come from for online design services. Designer fees typically cover their time, travel, equipment, insurance, employee expenses and much more! With e-Design, the fee is a fraction of the cost since it only covers a fraction of the designer’s expenses. Much less than what you would pay for offline design services. Plus, with our Fresh Look e-Design packages, you can decide what space you want to design starting as little as $400.
2. Quick Turn-Around
We’ve heard the saying, “Time is Money”, and waiting 6 months to a year to fix up the spare bedroom may not be ideal. Perhaps you have an Airbnb, family visiting for the holidays, or simply want your new empty nest to become a home office. In about a month’s time, with a design guide and shopping list, you can have your space completely finished.
3. Design at Your Pace
Whether you are working on one room at a time or simply want to see how to accessorize your space, e-Design is a great way to design at your own pace. Our Fresh Look e-Design package comes with a shopping list, furniture plan, and even elevations if needed to help you truly plan your purchases. Keep in mind though, that some options may go out of stock if you wait too long. The benefit here is that with a visual key from the shopping list and concept board, you already have selections made and can purchase similar pieces if they do go out of stock. This makes it easy to purchase now, later, or even when it is on sale. Plus, you can purchase items one piece or one room at a time giving you more control of your spending. It’s a win-win!
4. Try Before You Buy
3D renderings and concept boards are a key component in eDesign services. It allows you the opportunity to see your new room before you finalize your purchases. This way you can try out different pieces in the space and make changes before you buy it. With the help of your designer (such as myself), you may even have the option to schedule showroom visits and try the piece out in-person. Eliminating furniture purchase regrets.
5. Avoid Costly Mistakes
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve come across an issue where a client purchased an area rug or sofa for hundreds of dollars, only to find out, it doesn’t fit. They were left with the option of returning the item for less the delivery fee, trash it, or even donate it with little to no return on investment. With the expertise of a designer through online interior design services, you can avoid these costly mistakes. Comprehensive furniture plans with each piece drawn to scale ensures you’ll get a perfect fit right from the start. You take the guessing game out of your purchase, saving you money.
