Full Service Remodeling and Interior Design is Changing

Times they are a Changing in Interior Design and Remodeling

I was recently asked to be the expert regarding “full service remodeling and interior design” as part of a panel of designers presenting to the Interior Design Business Practice Class at Canada College. With experience comes a wonderfully unique vantage point and I was excited to weigh in on the hot topics in our industry today. Much has changed and I have been there to see it first-hand as it has.

Then and Now – Material Choices for Interior Design and Remodeling

In preparation for this class, I began to think about what the business was like when I started my business and how it has changed. Thirty years ago, one could very easily be a generalist. That is to say, the training for designers applied to every designer, and the need to be a specialist was not as great. Only  basic knowledge in the following areas was required:

  1. Flooring materials
  2. Lighting
  3. Appliances
  4. Plumbing fixtures
  5. Windows and doors
  6. Cabinets
  7. Wall finishes
  8. Electronics

Now, however, it is really important to specialize on one particular area, as all of these have become so complex that anyone of these could be a an area of expertise in and of itself. This is the reason that I have aligned myself with some of the best specialist in the industry. They stay focused on what they do know best, leaving me time to do what I do best. And together, we create stunning interiors. After all, it is all about providing the best for the client.
