The Art of Interior Design

We’re delighted that Design Builders showhomes always win compliments for superb architecture and top-quality craft. At recent showhomes, another expert’s work is on display, adding a ‘wow’ factor that turns a stunning house into a beautiful home.

A home should look amazing, and reflect its owners’ personality and style. A home should also match how you live your life. These principles are at the heart of good interior design.

Naturally, we love clients who have their own sense of style. If that’s you, we celebrate your style by working with you to create a home built around you. Some of our clients like the idea of bringing in an interior designer. We’re happy to recommend an expert to help you if you think this is a good way to go.

If you’ve taken a look at our recent Waikato or Bay of Plenty showhomes, you would no doubt have enjoyed the carefully considered colours, fabrics, furnishings and more. They were all chosen by an interior designer. There are some good reasons to use an interior designer.

For instance, they can save you time and money. They’re faster at coming to the right design decisions. They can help you get the best value out of your budget, and know where to spend to achieve maximum effect. In short, you can get more by spending less.

A good interior designer will see design opportunities that you might have missed. With a practised eye, they know how to bring everything together to create a coherent and cohesive effect. They can create a functional space that looks great.

The best interior designers have excellent connections. They know the right people, who can help bring it all together. They have an uncanny knack of being able to track down the right fabrics, or get hold of just the right shade of paint, or find that impossible-to-get perfect chair.

Interior designers know how to communicate with architects, contractors and clients. Having excellent communications with those responsible for lighting, furnishing, and architecture is vital. It keeps everything on track.

Qualified interior designers can see the bigger picture in an interior space. They think laterally about home decoration, and surprise and delight with ideas. When inspiration strikes, they know how to bring design to life.
