How to Pick the Best Interior Design Company in Overland Park

The decision to re-design your home in Overland Park, KS leads to an even bigger decision in deciding which interior designer to hire. You may be asking yourself “how do I go about choosing a premier interior designer that will match my style, budget and provide quality workmanship”? When you hire an interior designer, it requires careful thought and consideration. Above and beyond your style, the function and organization of your home and lifestyle needs to be taken into consideration. You need a professional interior designer who can bring it all together to create a beautiful and functional space you will love. This is an important project you will be investing in and you need it to be done right with the perfect vision, highest quality of products and workmanship to last a lifetime.

Review Past Interior Design Projects in Your Area

Research is the key to making the right decision to hire the best interior designers. It is important to review a designer’s portfolio of other homes in the Overland Park area and surrounding communities to get an idea of the designs they have created and if those designs appeal to you.

As you find the interior designers creating beautiful spaces aligned with the look and feel you are seeking, bookmark them and the spaces that appeal to you so that you can reference them when you meet with the designers. When you meet with the interior designers, keep in mind you are interviewing them so make sure they have a personality and vision to match your own as well as ensuring their portfolio is something you LOVE before you hire an interior designer.

What to Look For When Reviewing Interior Designer Portfolios

When reviewing a portfolio, you might see something like this Hearth Room Remodel designed with modern furniture with clean lines.  Do you love the pops of color against soft natural colors in this room?  The placement of furniture and the use of color here give a light, open and airy feel to this space.

The ottomans used are more than just design elements; they also serve as an organizational function, keeping the space clean and neat yet practical.  This room could be a perfect place to gather with your family and friends and would be easy to maintain.  The best interior designers can pull all the necessary elements together with the building or room structure you have to work with and create a beautiful space for you to enjoy.

While looking for that perfect interior designer, examine the before and after pictures in their portfolio and determine if they have the skills and vision you are seeking. Are the room designs up-to-date and do they fit in with the local area? Most importantly, do you love what you see?

    Don’t just take our word for it!

    “We recently built our first new home and wanted to make sure the flow of colors, design style and furniture were cohesive throughout the house. We met with Arlene and took a leap of faith to work with her and her team. The Design Connection team helped us choose paint colors, lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures, tile, floor color, carpeting, and furniture for the main living area. They also provided design help with cabinetry and our wine cellar as well as many other elements that needed to be coordinated with the builder. We are delighted with our new home and have received many compliments from our guests. We appreciate all the guidance, suggestions, and assistance Design Connection provided.”
