You might have hired a painter, plumber, or renovator several times during your history of home ownership. But how many times have you hired a decorator?

For many homeowners, hiring a decorator is a first time experience. That’s what makes knowing how to choose the right one so challenging.

Here’s a tip: Clip photos from magazines of rooms that match the “look and style” you want. Pay particular attention to desired colours, decor, accents, furnishings, and themes.

Then, when meeting with a prospective decorator, see if there’s anything in his or her portfolio that matches your clippings. If there is, then you’ll have a good indication that he or she can pull off the look you want.

By reviewing what a designer has done in the past through their blogs, professional portfolios, or 3rd party review sites you can match the style you are looking for to a professional who can make it happen.
