Decorative Interior Painting in Kenilworth
Home Stagers are part of the Real-Estate industry (not the decorating industry as many assume). Their primary focus is to make your home as appealing and desirable to potential buyers as possible. A fast sale for top dollar is the motivator and inspiration behind their decorating choices. Homes are striped of their personality. Belongings are carefully edited and minimized.
You will see this service offered by some Home Stagers. It is similar to Home Staging To Sell except for home owners personality will be encouraged in the decor not stripped away. This service is also similar to Interior Decorating except there is greater emphasis placed on the editing of the space.
Decorative interior painting in Kenilworth usually has an in-depth expertise in window treatments, textiles, colour, paint, wall-coverings, furnishings and antiques. Many Interior decorators liken them-self to an artist. Their canvas is your empty room; their artistic medium is paint, fabric, furnishings, carpeting, wall papers, accessories and art.
If you are redecorating your space for your own enjoyment and plan on sticking primarily to surface design (rather than architecture modifications) then they are the ones to call.
Generally speaking though, an Interior Designer is a person who specializes in designing architectural interiors and their furnishings. Although it evolved from interior decoration it is a much more involved discipline requiring a sound knowledge of architecture, product design, drafting, CAD, commercial (contract) design, building codes and other regulatory requirements. Most Interior Designers, in the residential industry, are also Interior Decorators and as such offer all of the services an Interior Decorator offers. The educational requirements for membership in these and other trade affiliations can be quite comprehensive requiring a 3-4 year degree from a recognized design school, followed by a 3 year apprenticeship and finally the writing and passing of a qualifying exam (much like law students who are required to write the bar exam).
