What’s your style? Are you fascinated by modern farmhouse, captivated by the classics, motivated by mid-mod, or charmed by shabby chic? Perhaps you’ve spent the better part of the last few years discovering your home decor identity only to realize that now—faced with fresh and bare walls to call your own—you haven’t a clue how to go about putting your personality into your personal space. As the saying (from one of America’s best loved 1980s films) goes, “Who you gonna call?”
When you need a keen eye and precise guidance, the value of a professional interior designer cannot be overstated. Interior designers typically spend years educating themselves and honing their own creative je ne sais quoi. But if the thought of hiring a professional makes you balk, “What if I’m not a millionaire?,” have no fear: the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) can help! For the discerning Minnesotan with design in mind, solutions abound (across numerous budgets) when you work with a designer at ASID.
So, you may wonder, “When I work with an ASID designer, what do I get?”
Experience, on a number of levels, in any combination of styles. Because of the incredible support, opportunities, career growth, and educational investments ASID offers to its members, you can be sure there is a designer for you who knows exactly how to deliver your dream. ASID designers have passed rigorous professional scrutiny and met exhaustive industry standards.
Health and safety are always front and center. ASID’s designers understand codes, standards, regulations, and any other information necessary to foster health and well-being on any project—whether it’s remodeling or new construction entirely.
Cost-effectiveness is always considered. Far from loyal to the almighty dollar, ASID designers are loyal to your dream. It is their mission to get it done within your budget, and as such, you can expect guidance, professional insights, and collaborative compassion that identifies solutions that are on time, on budget, and prioritize your needs.
Connections, darling! ASID designers come with an impressive Rolodex (do the kids know what that means anymore?) of sources, partners, and collaborators nationwide. Less middlemen means less time in project-limbo. Solutions aren’t just clever, they can even be quick!
Project management that would make your boss jealous. Because of the incredible opportunities and training afforded to every designer at ASID—regardless of their career stage—you can expect the designer you work with to be ultra-savvy when it comes to planning, scheduling, managing, and executing your project from start to finish.
There’s a slogan at ASID that we think is the right note to end on: “Design Impacts Lives.”
When it comes down to it, hiring an ASID designer is more than hiring a professional. You’re hiring an artist to seize your vision and make it real. Their experience helps cut through chaos, avoid expensive setbacks, and finally—at long last—see yourself in your space.
