If you know how to do the labor yourself and you have a pretty good idea of what you want the finished project to look like, it may seem unnecessary to hire a designer.

“There are just so many other options that people don't even consider,” she said. “A lot of people, if they were to flip this home, would probably do a standard white shaker cabinets with a gray tile because they think that's what's going to appeal the most to people. But people actually like to see something unique.”
