What's the difference between Interior Designers and Interior Decorators?
There is a difference between the terms interior designer and interior decorator. Interior designers design functional spaces with an understanding of the likes, wants, and behavior of the people who will be using it. Interior decorators are those who furnish a space taking the aesthetics into account such as fabrics, color, etc. Interior decorating is part of what interior designers do, but interior designers are also equipped to recommend structural changes such as the removal or addition of walls, doorways, windows etc., though they don't conduct those changes themselves unless they also hold a state contractors license. The barrier to entry to become an interior designer is usually much greater than to be a decorator and interior designers usually can demonstrate college or design school degrees, and industry accreditations.
While there is no state license or other legal standard for interior designers, there is a voluntary designation of CID (Certified Interior Designer) which is applied for and earned by passing an exam on building codes and systems specific to California.
What is the value to finding an interior designer?
In the digital age, there is a growing number of online computer imaging tools that let the average consumer see and compare different choices in colors, fabrics, materials, fixtures and more. But there are also lots of medical websites that list symptoms, yet we all agree that a real diagnosis and solution should come from an actual doctor and we wouldn't undertake a certain course of treatment and the expense for it based only on something we saw online. Similarly, interior designers provide value that computer imaging tools can't. They have spent years learning, living and breathing design, material properties, and judging performance after installation for previous clients. For example, a consumer can pick among colors and finishes of a coffee table online, but a designer will be able to also consider the consumer's lifestyle based on previous experience such as knowing that if they have children, a particular shiny finish will be hard to keep clean of fingerprints. Or there's more to fabric selection than just color and texture. Perhaps flame retardant qualities should be a priority in a house of smokers, or new carpets not made with off-gassing chemicals for a house of the chemically sensitive client or just those who are super health conscious. Interior designers have run across these problems and solutions before for previous clients.
Interior Designers Save You Money
Technology allows consumers to do more and more design elements themselves that previously they would have hired a designer for. This might let a consumer believe that they are saving money by not hiring an interior designer, yet interior designers save you money. For example, while a consumer can use a retailer's website to mix and match color and fabric choices on a couch, a designer will know of many more options available than the consumer can possibly know, thus they are able to provide greater satisfaction in the long run and items that perform better. So it costs you more to try to go it alone when you end up dissatisfied in just a few years and spend all over again to replace items because you didn't like it as much as you could have, or due to poor performance, or with a home remodel that could have provided a bigger resale price with a designer's input, reaping tens of thousands of dollars more upon the sale.
Interior designers often get steep discounts on furnishings not available to the consumer due to special manufacturer relationships or greater purchasing volume.

When choosing which interior designer to hire, ask the right questions about their experience, education, range of services, and credentials before deciding:
• How long have the interior designers been in business?
• How many interior design projects have they done specifically in San Bernardino County?
• What is their experience doing projects similar to yours? (Such as size of home, value of home, residential interior designers versus commercial interior designers, etc.)
• Can the interior designers give you names and numbers of clients you can call as references? (All interior designers bearing The Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have already had their client references called by our research staff so you don't have to.)
• Do they charge for an estimate? If so, how is that amount calculated?
• What is their hourly rate and will they be able to give you an estimate of the finished project total cost? (Important because cheap interior designers only appear to be so with a lower hourly rate but might take much longer and end up being more costly than a more experienced interior designer with a slightly higher hourly rate)
• Do they have a particular specialty you should know about?
• Can they show you proof of active liability insurance, and if sending employees to your property, workers comp insurance for your protection? (All interior designers bearing The Prime Buyer's Report—TOP 10 symbol have already had proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)
• Do they use interior design software that will let you visualize your space as an aid in making choices?
• What school(s) did the interior designer go to and what degrees do they hold?
• How many clients do they typically handle at one time and so what will be their availability to you?
• Who will be your point of contact at their company on an on-going basis, the owner or an employee?
• If they recommend structural changes, do they have a state contractor's license to do the work themselves? If not, who is responsible for hiring and managing a contractor, you or the interior designer? If it's the designer, what is the name of that company they would be using?
• Do they have any special relationships with distributors or manufacturers?
• What kinds of samples do the interior designers have available for you to see?
• How will they show you examples of their previous interior design projects?
