Why Not Just Do It Yourself?

Posted by on Sep 8, 2014 in Featured | 0 comments

“Do It Yourself” has become so popular there is not only an acronym for it (DIY) but there are businesses built around getting a project done without the assistance of a professional. Maybe this is the pioneering spirit or a budget-conscious choice, but we all know that everything comes down to time vs. money… you want something done, you’re going to spend one or the other.

So, why not do some interior redecorating, redesigning or home staging on your own? For the same reason you shouldn’t fix a water leak on your own (unless you are a plumber) or fix a broken timepiece on your own (unless you are a horologist)… just because you think you can doesn’t mean you should. Interior redesign is not about “moving furniture around”. Yes, part of your Room Refinement­™ or Resale Ready® Staging is rearranging furnishings and accessories, but the focus is on functionality. Without function, the space feels “awkward”. Without function, the room might feel “crowded”. Without function, the buyer won’t feel “at home”.

There are 10 common decorating mistakes that most people make. Even if they know what they are and have read a plethora of articles and tips on interior design, they still tend to err on several points.  Many times, DIYers do it themselves because of cost and perception… “If I hire someone to help with my interiors, it will cost more than we can afford and they will want me to invest even more into new furnishings and remodeling.”

At Élan Redesign, you know up front what the cost is and it is a flat rate. It is up to you whether you want to purchase something new, however, our goal is to provide you with a space you will love living in using what you already own.
