1.) Style – Does their style fit yours? If you had a chance to flip through their portfolio you can notice whether or not their style fits your own or whether they can deliver on your needs.  Take time to discuss what you want and make sure their suggestions fit your palate.

2.) Personal Attention – If your designer is not taking time to listen to you and hear your suggestions or responses to their suggestions, you might want to keep looking.  It takes time to understand how to make a room uniquely you, and if your interior designer isn’t doing that, show them the door.

3.) Word of Mouth Marketing – It may be over-used, but people generally trust what other people have to say about you first. Find references and call them to determine if their level of work meets your needs.

4.) Reputable Websites – Is their website up to date? Can you view pictures of some of their work on their website, and is their contact information listed online? Quality websites are like a waiting room for your business and a poorly designed one might scare you away.

5.) Portfolio – Look through their portfolio.  If you can see the quality of work represented in their portfolio they may be a match for you.  If they don’t have one, it might be a sign to run.

6.) Years in Business – How long have they been in business?  We are not suggesting to stay away from newly-formed businesses, but experience can be key in understanding your style needs.

7.) Professionalism – How a designer presents themselves can often also be a deciding factor for your search for the perfect one.  Make sure you are comfortable with your designer so that speaking with them is never difficult or intimidating.

8.) Easy to Contact – Though you had to have been in contact with them to get to this step, do they answer the phones when you call?  How long does it take for them to get back to you, and how difficult is it for you to contact them online?  You deserve personalized attention and someone to answer your call when you need them.
