Hiring an interior decorator is a smart decision and it is important to understand the benefits that they can bring to your project. Many clients feel that using the services of a decorator
is strictly for the rich and famous, who are quite happy to replace existing furnishings with very expensive pieces. And yes, these clients do exist, but the majority of clients are not from trust fund families. Often, clients have design ideas of their own, but need help to pull their vision together. They simply do not have the time to execute their plan, with day to day busy schedules to deal with.
Apart from the obvious attraction of gaining a functional, attractive, comfortable and inviting home, the following outlines a list of points that you may not have yet considered:
1. DISCOUNTS & SAVINGS
It sounds strange, but hiring someone to decorate your home will save you money! Not only will it avoid costly mistakes, but the design discounts can often add up to more than the design fees, which is always good news. Decorators coordinate with the stores, contractors, architects and other trades, to complete your project on time and importantly within budget. If you have invested a fair amount of money in your home, you obviously want to present it at its best. The reality is that decorators will not only save you money, they will also eliminate many hours of frustration and stress. If you’re decorating to sell, a decorator can also boost buyer appeal and add value to your home.
2. MAKING A DESIGN PLAN & SAVING TIME
Whether you are just seeking advice, or require the job to be completed for you, the assistance of a decorator can help you avoid costly mistakes, saving you money and time. In addition, decorators know where to shop both in-store and online, and also where the savings are to be found. They also have resources available that their clients may not be aware of, or have access to. A decorator can easily assess a room or home and come up with a design plan, and put it into action. A decorator additionally offers an extra set of eyes which have been trained to see and notice deficiencies that you may not.
3. LIAISON WITH TRADES
In addition to vendor resources, interior decorators have numerous home improvement industry contacts. Using a decorator will help you find reliable painters, electricians, plumbers etc for your project. This will inevitably make the project run more smoothly and relieve stress. Decorators are trained to think about things that a client may miss. Attention to these small details is crucial. They need to be addressed before construction\renovation gets started.
4. DECORATING TO SELL
A decorator has the ability to add great value to your home. Everyone loves an esthetically pleasing picture. This in turn can increase showings and sales. Showing your home at its best can vastly reduce the amount of time it will sit on the market before being sold. Having a faster turn around will relieve the stress involved in selling your home, and provide a greater financial return - who wouldn’t want that?
5. LOOKING FABULOUS
Using a decorator can help give you the “wow” factor you’re looking for. Their training enables them to look at the space differently and develop design ideas that the client may not think of. Often, they will use accent pieces and furniture that are already owned by the client and simply set them differently, or place them in a different location. Thinking outside of the box is what decorators do consistently. Their extensive experience gives them the ability to interpret your style and know exactly what will work, and equally importantly, what will not!
6. DESIGNERS COST LESS THAN A DIVORCE LAWYER!
Sometimes a decorator is called upon to mediate on differing opinions between partners! Qualified decorators are skilled at proposing a design plan that will work effectively, whilst considering the important needs of each person. Solutions can be found and a plan developed, where all parties are satisfied.
Just a note to thank you for your amazing presentation of my listings. Not only do the properties look and feel completely modern and compelling, the owners are thrilled with the ease with which you interpret the strongest features and draw out the real beauty of their home. Often the owners of the homes that you stage have said “Wow! I don’t think I want to sell it anymore!”, but of course, the show goes on and within a very short time, not only do the properties draw exactly the target market I am aiming for, but we get real solid offers in the price band we are seeking.

Jan was referred to me by a colleague when I found myself in a pinch with a client. She was quick, easy to work with and my clients found her to be very helpful. I have since used her on a number of occasions and can happily say that each property she has staged was successfully SOLD! I would not hesitate to recommend her services...actually I already have!

We have had the pleasure to work with Jan on a few projects and we always look forward to each opportunity. Jan’s attention to detail and her creative eye for design make her a valued part of the team. She has such a wonderful & warm personality and combined with her design and decorating talent it always leads to an amazingly positive experience for everyone involved. Thank you so much Jan!

Buying a new home was daunting enough...then I had to decorate it. Well, that’s where Jan came in. We met and I had an instant connection with her. We worked approximately 8 months together. Jan is a great listener and you feel like she's fully invested in your vision for your home. She's great with colour and brings her unique flare to the project; I call it the ‘wow factor’. She spends so much time shopping and looking for what's going to fit in that perfect spot. I've been so pleased with her work I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

When I undertook my kitchen and master bathroom renovation project, I really wasn't sure where to start. My first step was to call Jan, and that was the best first step I could have taken. Jan has been a terrific resource, from recommending a top-notch contractor to providing a keen eye and good taste for colours and materials. And she's a joy to work with: personable and warm, she is also down-to-earth and direct, and her natural gift for detail manifests itself in her thoughtful design suggestions. I would definitely recommend Jan's services.
A new listing of mine needed some creative staging and, on the recommendation of a fellow realtor, I was fortunate to be introduced to Jan from Impressions Interior Decorating. The interior transformation she achieved, at short notice and in a very timely fashion, was truly amazing. Both the sellers and myself thoroughly enjoyed the experience of collaborating together with Jan and her team. Her suggestions were practical and she delivered everything she had promised. Thanks to Jan's creativity and hard work the listing sold in 3 days with 3 competing offers. The sellers were delighted and it greatly facilitated my job as the realtor. Impressive results and I've found a dynamic new stager and decorator with a personable touch to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending Jan and her team.

Jan is intuitive, approachable and artistic. Her ability to attune to my comfort range and yet propose interesting combinations of colour that I had not previously considered was much appreciated. I recommend her without reservation.

Moving into a 1,000 square foot apartment had so many challenges that we were feeling overwhelmed. With Jan’s help, we enjoyed decorating and furnishing our new home. Jan relieved all the stress, worry and confusion. We couldn’t have done it without her!
STEVE & GAYLE North Vancouver | HOUSE
A couple of years ago, my husband and I embarked on a major renovation of our home. We were feeling a little overwhelmed at the prospect of choosing paint colors, furniture, finishes, etc. Jan came highly recommended to us by a long time friend so we hired her to help us. At our first meeting with Jan our fears and concerns were put to rest. She was able to help us find our own sense of style and to come up with solutions to mine and my husband's differing opinions. She also stayed respectful of our budget. We are both very proud of our "new" home and still enjoy the compliments we get when people come over. We have since recommended Jan with confidence to other friends.
LYNNE & DOUG North Vancouver | HOUSE
Our family was in the midst of a major renovation when I consulted with Jan. She helped us make our tiling and counter choices for our bathrooms and kitchen. At this point we were entirely overwhelmed with the many choices available. Through her thoughtful and patient discussions with us, she proposed a colour palette that created an integrated and calming interior. I later asked Jan to help us choose a new exterior house colour. She was instrumental in helping us find a colour that was striking as well as in harmony with our interior colours. I will definitely work with Jan again as she brought a wonderful sense of colour, patience and humour which helped us navigate what could have been a very stressful period.
