How Interior Designers Collaborate with Architects (and How That Benefits Homeowners)

Spoiler alert: When it comes to large scale remodels, and new home construction projects, you probably need both.

Before starting a home construction project, homeowners often wonder whether to hire an architect or an interior designer. The answer? If you are building from the ground up or working on an extensive remodel, you’ll likely need both. 

Every home tells a story woven through the work of both architects and interior designers. In our 10+ years of design experience, the most successful new home construction and extensive remodel projects are ones where there exists a symbiotic relationship between these two professionals. As interior designers, we’ve found that collaborating with architects allows us to better complement each other’s expertise and keep your vision and preferences at the forefront. Working in harmony encourages the exchange of ideas and ensures the cohesiveness of your project.
