Why use an interior designer? The short answer is that great design doesn’t happen by accident. Here are the top reasons to work with a designer – and the evidence, in before and after photos!

A designer can save you time and money. Before we begin a project, I discuss lifestyle and design style with our clients, and how the space will be used. We then develop the project and the client’s budget, setting realistic expectations together.

A designer is trained in space planning, thinking through the details that homeowners may overlook. Design Connection, Inc. prepares AutoCAD or 3-D drawings based on our client’s ideas and lifestyle. Our clients have an accurate picture of how each piece will function within the space.

A designer has access to resources. Design Connection, Inc. maintains an extensive sample library from hundreds of design resources and manufacturers. We save our clients time, and make it easy to review selections and options.

The Results are Worth It!

Working with a certified, professional interior designer is the best way to ensure a smooth project, a defined budget and beautiful results!

From Blah Bathroom to Personal Spa

Design Connection, Inc. transformed this outdated bathroom into a serene oasis. We played up the natural light by using a palette of soothing whites and grays for walls, tiles and cabinetry.



From Tired to Transitional Elegance: Refined Kitchen

The wood molding and cabinets with the soffit between them gave this kitchen a choppy look. We reconfigured the space with rich wood floors and extended the white cabinetry to the ceiling for an open and spacious kitchen, complete with ample dining space!



From Dowdy to Distinctive: Upscale Dining Room

This old-fashioned dining room was showing its age. With Arlene’s trained eye, Design Connection, Inc. gave this space a makeover with sleek, updated finishes and a gorgeous color palette of grays and blues.
