Angie's List Report: Should you hire an interior designer?

When it comes time to spruce up your home, adding new artwork or furniture may be the perfect way to breathe fresh life into your home decor, but there is a lot more you could do.

Interior designers can help take the guess work out of a project by allowing you to see what your new space can look like before any work is even done, just as Joyce Elizabeth Tranchida did for her client.

"We came in as designers and we helped him create this style by creating a 3D model that he could see exactly what it was going to look like when it was complete and he was able to see it in augmented reality," Tranchida said.

Interior designers are often able to find creative ways to solve any issues by means that are unique to you and your space.

"We also hired a carpenter to come in and build this beautiful bookshelf behind me to separate the two spaces because, as you can see, it's a very open studio and he wanted to create a space for living a space for sleeping, dining and office and there needs to be some separation but still leave it open," Tranchida said.

While hiring an interior designer may be more of a process than simply updating your wall color and some throw pillows, the overall process can be fairly simple. For more tips: AngiesList.com
