Working with an Interior Designer

When you are planning a home remodeling project for your Minneapolis home, you may have plans to replace built-in features like the flooring, light fixtures, cabinetry, cabinets, and more. A general contractor may assist you with these aspects of a remodeling project, but you’ll also need to decorate the space after the construction aspect of the project has been completed.

Working with a trusted interior designer, such as one working with Tiffany Hanken Design, can help you give your revamped space the beautiful look you desire. Here are some steps that you can take to ensure that you get the most out of your experiences with an interior designer.

Interior Design Firms in Minneapolis

Hiring an interior designer is one of the best steps that you can take in achieving the decorating goals you have for your space, and you may have already started checking on various interior design firms in Minneapolis use for your project.

Learning how to set your interior design budget is an important step in the decorating process.

If you’re a resident of the Minneapolis area and need help creating the perfect room for your baby, an interior designer would be of great help in creating a nurturing and luxurious room for your little one.

Redoing the interior of your house can be an exciting undertaking. The idea of having new curtains, flooring, and wall decorations hung can heighten your enjoyment of your home. However, when you are ready to hire a decorator that specializes in interior design for Minneapolis homes, you would do well to lay some groundwork to make the project easier and more enjoyable. Establishing your budget and knowing your personal style can help you overcome two of the most common hindrances that people encounter when redecorating their homes.

When renovating a space, walls usually get all the attention. Sometimes you’ll apply a beautiful wallpaper to them; sometimes they’ll get a nice lacquer; other times walls can turn into a museum of art. But what about the ceilings? There are so many beautiful, creative ceiling treatments that often get overlooked. For this week’s article I’m reminding you of other fun options for a big renovation!

A proper lighting fixture really sets the tone for a room, and it can serve as the focal point for any space in the house. One of my favorite interior design trends right now is sculptural lighting. These unique fixtures are a mix of function (they are lights, right?) and art, with their beautiful bold shapes, unexpected combinations of materials and, sometimes, their immense size.

Sculptural lightings can range from the rough industrial look, with dark brass and bare bulbs, to elegant pieces that look more like statues than lighting. Sculptural lighting knows no limits, but here are 10 pieces I love. I hope they inspire you as much as they did me!
