What Does an Interior Designer Do?
The truth is, Interior Design is an art and a science. It takes years of experience to develop the skills necessary to create magnificent home interiors that match each client’s specific needs.
There are many different types of Interior Designers, just as there are many different spaces that need to be designed. Primarily, there is commercial design (hotels, office space, etc.) and residential design (such as your home).
Here we’ll focus on Interior Design for the home.
It requires expertise to bring a room or a home together in a way that will serve you for years to come. When you work with an Interior Designer, you’re not just receiving advice, or help in choosing colors. You are working with an artist who knows how to translate your vision into tangible reality.
There are many definitions of what it means to be an Interior Designer – perhaps as many definitions as there are designers! However, all Interior Designers should share some similarities.
For example, Interior Designers should have a working knowledge of:
- Coordinating Surface Materials (countertops, backsplash, flooring, etc.)
- Fabric Selection and Design (Window Treatments, Soft Goods, and more.)
- Interior Color Scheme
- Lighting Plan
- Paint Color and Wall Coverings Selection
- Overall Plan and Scope of the Work that Needs to Be Completed
The very best Interior Decorators, such as Keely from Right at Home Interiors, have skills that extend far beyond those listed above.
In truth, the best Home Interior Designer for you is one who can listen to you, understand what you want, and make it happen. A great interior designer helps you live in your home in a comfortable, beautiful way.
When you find a combination of working technical knowledge, and powerful intangibles such as a pleasant personality, strong listening skills, and a powerful imagination, you’ve found an Interior Designer who can truly take your home to a whole new level.
Why Do I Need an Interior Designer?
A Home Interior Designer is an artist. There are so many facets to Interior Design that extend beyond selecting products. If you want a fully designed space with a beautifully laid out floor plan that creates harmony and joy in your life, you need a professional.
An expert Interior Designer, like Keely from Right at Home Interiors, helps to guide you through the process from start to finish, avoiding many pitfalls that the DIY Interior Decorator may encounter.
Some reasons you may choose to work with an interior designer are:
- You are ready for a change in style.
- You’re building a new home or remodeling and need help with interior selections.
- You know you want to redesign some or all of the rooms in your home and you want someone who can offer ideas you’ve never thought of.
- You feel that one or more rooms in your home just don’t quite “work,” but you can’t explain why.
- You want to add custom window treatments in your home.
- You have some idea of what you’re doing, but you want a professional to help you bring it all together.
- You’ve noticed the flow of your space could be improved.
- You want to create a cohesive look across one or more rooms.
- You want your home to really feel like you.
There are many other reasons why you would choose to work with an Interior Designer, but these are some of the most common.
Many Home Interior Designers also specialize in specific aspects of home design. For example, Keely’s specialty is custom window treatments and home accents. She is able to design and fabricate gorgeous pillows, bedding, drapes, valances, curtains, roman shades, and more to go with the overall design of your home. Not only will she pay close attention to every part of your project from start to finish, she will think of ways to enhance the overall look of your space in ways you would never even dream of.
When choosing your Interior Designer, it is important to consider the person along with the skills. This individual will be in the most private space in your life – your home. You want someone who has a high level of respect for you and your home, as well as someone who you feel really “gets you.” It will be a much more enjoyable experience overall if you select a Home Interior Designer you enjoy as a person as well as a professional.
What Are the Possibilities with Interior Design and Decorating?

No matter if you want one or both services, the possibilities with Interior Decorating and Design are truly endless.

All of these styles and more can be achieved with the help of a professional home stylist. Keely from Right at Home Interiors connects with your specific style to ensure that your home is designed and decorated just the way you like it.
There are many facets to Interior Design. Nearly every aspect of your home can be altered, elevated, enhanced, or highlighted to create a look that is all your own.
Here are some of the ways you can use
Interior Design in your home:
Furniture Planning and Shopping
This is sure to be one of the most enjoyable parts of your experience. Once you have a room planner as well as a shopping list, you’re off to shop! This can include shopping for furniture, art, décor, fabric, area rugs, and more.
Keely measures and considers all aspects of each room when designing a plan and a shopping list so that you know what size you need of everything. Nothing like falling in love with a certain piece of art or a sofa, only to discover that it’s the wrong size and shape!
With Keely’s expert guidance, you will feel empowered to select pieces you love that will also fit beautifully in your home. From living room design, bedroom design, kitchen design, and more, Keely will ensure that all your products are the right shape, style, and size to suit the needs of your space.
Perhaps you already have the right furniture, but the room layout needs work. Keely can help design a custom floor plan to help you create more flow in each space and from one room to another. This is a great choice if you have already carefully planned out the colors, décor, and furniture for each room, but need help with furniture rearranging in order to bring an entire room together.
It takes an expert to know which fabric is appropriate for which product. Beyond the type of fabric, there are endless prints and colors of fabric to choose from. Solids, florals, textures, modern prints, and more need to be combined in just the right way to accent the style of your room.
This is Keely’s specialty and what keeps her clients coming back to her again and again. Her knowledge of fabric ensures that you will have the right fabrics in the right places in your home to enhance its overall beauty.
Keely not only helps to select the proper fabric for your project, she custom makes your drapery, as well as your soft goods (such as your bedding, pillows, cushions, and more). When you work with Keely you will receive superior products made specifically for you.
Paint Color Consulting
Creating a paint color scheme for your home is one of the trickiest parts of the interior design process – and one clients often want to jump into first! But Keely knows that there is more that goes into painting than color selection.
She will help you navigate the complex process of coordinating your room décor, tailored window treatments, custom soft goods, and more with your paint colors. From an accent wall color to a paint color plan for your entire home, Keely can help you design a look you love.
When it comes time to apply your paint she will tell your paint professional which primer to use, how many coats to apply, and where the paint needs to stop and start. She will help you decide what sheen to choose as well (flat, satin, semi-gloss, or gloss).
Wall Covering Selection
Wallpaper is making a comeback! Just like paint color selection, a wallpaper plan takes expert knowledge and skill to be done right. Even if you’re only interested in accent wallpaper as opposed to investing in wall covering for your entire room or home, you need someone with an eye for design that can help you create a cohesive look.
When it’s time, Keely will make sure your wall is prepped correctly and that your wallpaper is expertly applied. Keely’s rich knowledge of installation techniques and attention to detail ensures that you will be happy with the finished look.
There are so many fun lighting options available. From table lamps to chandeliers, pendent lighting, decorative light sconces, floor lamps, ceiling fans, and more, Keely knows how to get the right light sources in the right places. With her design plan she lays out the right scale and placement of your lighting to ensure a balance of light across your home.
Her expertise ensures that your lighting choices reflect the style of your home, adding an important element to kitchen décor, bathroom décor, living room décor, and beyond. A lighting plan from Keely ensures that your chandeliers, pendent lights, lamps, and sconces all coordinate in your space and provide optimum light in a beautiful way.
Styling and Accessorizing
Your home décor accessories bring everything together. Keely can design custom pillows, table linens, chair cushions, or other tailored soft goods for your home. She will also help you choose area rugs, art, and other home décor pieces. When it comes time to bring all your selections into the space, Keely will hang your art, create decorative displays, and style your room to the highest level.
2. Remodeling and Renovation
This is for those who are ready to change the framework, architecture, or major fixtures in their home. Perhaps you love your nook, but your kitchen design needs a change. Maybe it’s time to replace the countertops in your bathroom. Or perhaps you’re looking to take your kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, or another space down to the studs and completely redesign it from scratch.
No matter what you’re looking to change, an Interior Designer is essential to ensure that the vision you have in your head is what you end up with as a finished product. There’s so much that goes into changing a backsplash or replacing cabinetry in your home – let alone redesigning an entire room. Measuring, taking moulding into account, knowing how big to make the hood above your stove – all these things and more need to be known before you begin construction. In short: you need a plan.
That’s where Keely comes in.
Her expertise and imagination combine to create a design plan that matches your style and ensures that your choices will actually work in your space. Keely knows that a project as complex as remodeling your kitchen or your bathroom is one that you don’t want to have to do again – so you want to do it right the first time! You need a focused, detailed plan, and Keely will help you create one. With her guidance you can undergo your renovation or remodeling project with confidence.
Material and Finishes Selection
These are your cabinets, countertops, flooring, cabinet pulls, doors, trim, appliances, sinks and faucets, and more. These products elevate the overall look and feel of your home and provide the backdrop for your home’s interior. You’re going to live with these elements the longest, so you want to make sure you’re happy with your choices. Whether building a home from scratch, or redesigning an existing room, you need to have the decoration elements planned out in advance.
Keely helps you make the right choices for your home, inspects each piece, and oversees the installation. She is involved from start to finish. Her detailed plans are designed to eliminate as many problems as possible so that your home comes together exactly as you want it with as much ease as possible.
Cabinetry and Mill-Work
Designing or redesigning your cabinetry, creating a moulding plan, or enhancing any of the architectural features of your home requires a specialist. Keely is well-connected in her industry and works with a high-level contractor to ensure that your cabinetry, mouldings, and trim are installed with a perfect finished look.
If you’re looking to add more storage to your home, Keely can design cabinetry that fits with the existing style of your space, or as part of a larger design plan. Her expert knowledge of the various types of cabinetry, hardware, and shelving gives you unlimited options. Along with this, she understands how to fit your new cabinets in your space in the most beautiful, seamless way possible.
When deciding to build all new cabinetry from scratch, the task can seem daunting. If you’re looking at an empty hole, you may not fully see how it can all come together. Keely makes sure that every element of your cabinets, shelving, and mill-work are the proper size and style so that the finished products fits your space, looks great, and makes you happy every time you see it.
