Why a Decorator Is Right For You
The Difference Between a Decorator and a Designer
Let’s start off by explaining what the difference is between an interior decorator and an interior designer. A designer’s focus is on space planning, they make structural changes based on the psychology of room flow, acoustics, and temperature to name a few. On the other hand, we have a decorator, an expert who has the ability to create beautifully adorning rooms within your current space. A decorator can also work beside a contractor or designer to come up with stunning additional spaces in your home by breaking down walls and renovating. To clarify, a designer definitely has the ability to decorate, however, a decorator specializes in just that.
Why should you hire a decorator?
- You want a new look in your home
- Avoiding costly mistakes
- You’ve been living in your home for a long time
- Need a refresh
- Just moved in
- Want to create a charming flow throughout your home

“I’m renting… is it even worth it for me to decorate when I’m not going to stay in this space for long?”
“The secret of being happy is accepting where you are in life and making the most out of every day.”-Unknown.
There is no better time than the present to be enjoying your life, you should be living in a space that you adore. Let the decorator know that you’re renting and what the ins and outs are of the contract you have with your landlord and they will work around that to design a space which you can’t wait to show off to your friends.
“I have children and pets in the home, why would I spend the money decorating when everything will get ruined?”
