Affordable Interior Design: Hiring a Designer on a Budget
By the Vevano Home Team
February 18, 2022
Hiring an interior designer on top of the expense of a major renovation can feel overwhelming—especially when the average cost of an interior designer can be 20%+ of your budget!
In recent years, several online interior design services have started offering low, fixed rates, but many of these services only provide decorating and room staging services—they can’t help with complex remodeling projects.
That’s where Vevano Home comes in.
Not only do we offer all the trappings of other interior design companies—3D renderings, concept boards, expert design insight, and more—but 100% of your design retainer can go toward product purchases.
That’s right: you essentially get free interior design services when you purchase products through a Vevano Home designer.
Here’s everything you need to know about Vevano’s expert affordable interior design services.
Some interior designers offer only basic services or charge extra for more exhaustive plans and advice. At Vevano Home, you get the complete package and additional support covered by the same low designer retainer. Our designers go above and beyond to make your remodel dreams come to life! Here’s everything you will get with your design package.
Three-Person Design Team
You don’t just get one designer when you work with Vevano Home—you get three! Your design team includes a lead expert interior designer, a project coordinator, and an architectural drafter. Each team member has years of professional experience and are skilled at both the aesthetic and technical aspects of interior design.
Visual Concept Boards
Our designers pull colors swatches, flooring samples, furniture, fixtures, and more into a comprehensive digital concept board so you can begin to see how the design will come together.
Once you’ve chosen a design style based on your concept boards, your designer will create a 3D rendering to show you what your room will look like once it’s completed. This helps you not only see how the design elements will come together, but also envision how the layout and flow of the room will work in the space you have. Furniture pieces, lighting, appliances, flooring, cabinets, and other decor are all included in your 3D rendering. Many online 3D renderings can only show new decor and furniture or smaller installations, whereas our 3D renderings can show brand new cabinets and other major installations and room renovations.
These drawings are almost always included at an additional price. But with Vevano Home, your designer will draw up detailed floor plans and elevations that are helpful for contractors and prevent fewer mistakes during installation, all included in your retainer fee.
We want to make sure that when your remodel is completed and that it meets all your expectations and dreams. That’s why we offer unlimited design revisions. You work with your Vevano Home designer until your design is exactly where you want it to be.
One of the most enjoyable parts of your home remodel can also be one of the most overwhelming–shopping for furniture, fixtures, and other materials. Your designer makes this part of your project easy by putting together product lists and placing orders to make sure you have all the pieces for your project when you need them. They take care of all the calculations, negotiations, and coordination to save you time and money!
Virtual Project Support
Though we don’t offer installation services, we do provide product support from start to finish. We will answer all the questions installers or contractors you work with may have to make sure your design is executed properly.
How Vevano Designers Can Save You Money
- Free Design Services: Remember that you can get your design services absolutely free when you deduct the cost of products you purchase for your renovation from the design retainer.
- Fewer Costly Mistakes: On average, home renovation experts suggest reserving 10% of your design budget to cover unexpected mistakes. Since Vevano Home designers provide all the detailed specifications and floor plan information your installers will need, it’s unlikely that you’ll run into complications or mistakes as your design comes together so you can allocate more of your budget to top quality products and materials instead.
- Budget Management: With all the expenses and pieces of remodels, it’s easy to lose sight of your initial budget and project scope. With expert product and material knowledge plus outstanding organizational skills, Vevano Home designers help you find the products that keep you within your budget without sacrificing product quality.
- Increased Home Value: With a lot of advice and DIY tutorials on home renovations available on the internet, it can seem easy to design the interior of your home by yourself. But what happens when things don’t go as planned? The value of your home could suffer! Vevano Home designers have the expertise to make sure that all your home improvement efforts result in a space that increases your home’s value by avoiding short-lived trends, clunky space flows, and materials that just don’t hold up.
