Working in Synergy with Your Designer

If you’re thinking of updating a room in your home it can be difficult to go it alone. There are so many possibilities it can seem overwhelming. In these situations, bringing in an artistic and educated opinion can be crucial.

An Interior Designer will help you create a space that makes sense, within your budget.

How can an Interior Designer help you?

Interior Designers can help narrow your focus based on your personal style, your budget, and the room in question. They can also provide in depth knowledge of product quality, construction and purpose. Don’t forget that your designer can also give you creative solutions to your design dilemmas.

Don’t know where to start?

Even if you’re unsure of what you’d like to do with your home, do some research. Gather photos from magazines and websites of designs you admire so your designer can get an idea of your style. Even a piece of sculpture or artwork can provide enough inspiration to design an entire space.

Are you on the same page?

It is important to give your designer a clear picture of what you’re looking for. Speak your mind and make sure they are listening. Designer and client relationships sometimes fall through due to lack of communication. If a designer prepares a presentation for you and there are things you dislike, make sure you speak up! Chances are they have prepared a few other options for you. Remember that your designer is working with your best interest at heart.  Don’t feel guilty if you don’t like something — all they want is for you to love your space.


Clear communication will result in a beautiful design and a space you’ll be proud to call your own! Click here to schedule an appointment with a designer at Today’s Home.

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, I now follow in the footsteps of my grandparents and Today’s Home founders Audrey and Sig Lenchner and my parents Jeff and Jill Lenchner. It didn't take long for me to realize home design is in my blood. After graduating from The University of Pittsburgh with a BA in Business Administration I lived in New York City where I worked as the Wholesale Marketing Coordinator for jewelry designer David Yurman. I started my career at Today’s Home in the summer of 2015.
