Hiring a professional interior decorator or drapery expert to project-manage your new window treatment installation makes sense. Here are 5 ways it pays to hire a pro.


1. Saves time (and money)!

Why take the equivalent of Interior Design 101, when an expert can fast track you through the steps involved in making a window treatment choice that will work with your existing space?

All you need to do is meet the design expert in your home, show them your tearsheets indicating the type of style you prefer, and they can get to work explaining options suited to your space and budget.

This will save you hours of legwork and research.


2. Professional assessment and measurements

If you need help narrowing down design ideas, or want an honest assessment of the feasibility of incorporating a specific window treatment in your home, an expert can help. With their years of experience, they can weigh in with expertise gleaned on the job.

They also take the guesswork and fuss out of measurements so the project is done right, the first time.


3. Budget and planning expertise

Familiarity with products, manufacturers and installation, means that an expert can direct you to options within your project budget, and, once the project has started, keep it on track from a time and budget perspective.

Your decorator/drapery expert can also schedule your installation to minimize disruption and inconvenience. If it’s part of a larger home redecorating project, they can schedule it to fit the larger project timeline for efficiency and convenience.


4. Professional resources

Professional decorators have insider knowledge of online resources and design tools that non-decorators cannot access. They shop at designer showrooms open only to professionals, and can pull from thousands of fabric samples unavailable to those not working in the industry.


5. Liaison with contractors and vendors

Finally, minimize potential confusion and miscommunication by leaving the management of contractors and vendors to your expert. Managing projects is what they do all day, and familiarity with technical language and keeping all the cogs moving is what they do best!

In short, hiring a pro is the way to go. Then relax, knowing your project is on track, on budget and guaranteed to please.
