Redux Interior Design Firm Frequently Asked Questions


Job Specifics

How Much Will It Cost?

No job is too big or too small.  We do it all.  Because each job is different, an initial evaluation of services is required to determine the design fee.

I am concerned a designer will try to force pieces on me that I don't like.

A good professional interior designer will push a client to expand their aesthetic boundaries.  Would you want a designer to denying you the most exciting and rewarding part of interior design?  Be open to ideas and concepts.

Will It Cost A Lot?

Drawing on a professional's knowledge and experience,  a designer helps the client make informed choices and avoid costly mistakes.

I'm afraid  it will be too expensive, or that I will  get stuck with a room I won't  like.

Working with a licensed designer can save you money  by allocating resources wisely, eliminating decorating mistakes, and increasing creative thinking.

How much should I invest in my project?

Think about how you will use the space and what kind of qualities you would like.  Quality pieces that hold up and look good longer typically cost more.   A realistic budget is your best friend.   Designers have knowledge of furniture construction and can advise on the best product for the appropriate function.  A good designer will help you choose the right pieces for your job therefore saving  you time and money by providing sound interior design advice on how to allocate your resources wisely.

When do I bring in an interior designer?

The sooner the better!  If you are thinking of remodeling your home or building a new one, you should call as soon as possible.   A designer can bring knowledge and experience to the decisions made regarding space planning, electrical, plumbing, flooring, fabrics, furniture and more.



What is the difference between an interior designer and an interior decorator

Interior decorators typically focus on the decorative elements in a home, such as:  paint, furniture and decor.  Interior designers do this and more.  Registered Interior Designers have formal  training, real-world experience and continuing education.  An interior designer should have knowledge of interior architecture principals, furniture design & history, drafting skills, general building code guidelines and more.  Look for the designation "NCIDQ" or "Registered Interior Designer".  https://www.cidq.org/find-ncidq-certified-int-designer
