Restrictions? The qualifying shades must be purchased and installed between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011, for existing homes, not new construction. The home must also be considered your principal residence.

Why hire an interior designer?

“An interior designer is professionally trained to create a functional and quality interior environment. Qualified through education, experience and examination, a professional designer can identify, research and creatively resolve issues and lead to a healthy, safe and comfortable physical environment.” -NCIDQ.

An Interior Designer will:

• Organize a space to suit its function
• Make sure that designs match
• In compliance with building and safety codes
• Manage the construction and installation of a design project
• Appropriate use of acoustical and sound design
• Select and specify fixtures, furnishings, products and materials

At least half of all states require designers to be licensed or have some kind of certification to handle complex decisions about interior spaces.
