Design Tip: A Few Words from Mike Holmes About Interior Designers

“Adding an interior designer to the job can help streamline the build and save money!” Mike Holmes

Most people think that us designers are just involved in the project to make things look nice. However, we bring a lot more to the table than that.

An interior designer doesn’t just advise you on paint colours and furniture selections. They can also assist you with planning out your space and choosing materials.
