Finding interior designers online

Print Friendly

Redecorating your home can give it a new lease of life, but planning that makeover can take a lot of effort. That’s where a good interior designer is worth their weight in gold. For a stress-free way to transform your home into the space you’ve always dreamed of, find someone who can do all of the hard work for you. 

Some interior designers specialise in certain styles while others are happy to work to all tastes, the most important thing is to choose someone with talent. Let us help you find the best of the web and hook your dream designer.

Choosing a dream designer

The British Institute of Interior Design is a fantastic resource for anyone who is considering hiring a designer. Not only does it offer practical, professional support and best practice guidelines for its designers, it also has an excellent search function for customers. Simply enter all of your criteria into its Find an Interior Designer engine and it will return a list of potential candidates for you.

For more tips on picking the right person or company, it’s worth having a read of Transedit’s guide to interior designers. It offers some useful information about the kind of things you should look for when you’re considering a candidate and suggests a few ways to get your search on the go. If you need a starter guide to the kind of things an interior designer will handle for you, Our Property has a nice, no nonsense article covering the design basics. Once you have a good idea of the kind of things to look for, finding the best person for the job is a far easier task.

The most desirable designers

Another great way to be inspired when you’re on the hunt for a good interior designer is to pay attention to some of the most prolific people online. The Telegraph has put together a list of the top 20 interior design blogs and a quick look through is sure to leave you with a good idea of whose style you like and which designers aren’t for you. Red Online has also gathered a selection of the most interesting design blogs, all of which are sure to be fascinating for anyone who is about to give their home a makeover. And, if you have the budget for it, you might want to consider Ask Men’s top 10 British interior designers.

If you’re still finding it hard to pick the perfect designer for you, a new matchmaking service could be just what you need. Redbook is a London agency that works to pair people with the right designers, architects and professionals to help them create the home they’ve always wanted. Have the difficult decision of choosing a designer taken out of your hands and be confident that your matchmaker will be able to pick just the person you’re hoping for.

Let an interior designer get to work on your home and look forward to a completely refreshed and resigned space.
