Why DIY Needs Great Design

Think your DIY project doesn't need design?  Think again.

When it comes to remodeling and home improvement projects, there are lots of great reasons for "doing it ourselves" -- to save money, express our creativity, and to turn our personal visions into reality.   Design can help DIY-ers achieve all 3 goals.  Here's how:

  • DIY is all about getting great results without spending a lot of dollars.  In fact, the REALLY great DIY projects make it look like you’ve spent $500 instead of $50.  Good instructions—especially when it comes to design—increase the likelihood that you’ll reach that level of greatness, and enjoy stunning results.
  • Yes, you’re proud to be a DIY-er.  BUT—you don’t really want your projects to shout “Amateur!”—right?  Instead, your ultimate goal is to create DIY projects that look as professional as possible.  That’s where interior design comes in—as the smartest first step any DIY-er can take.                                    
  • The best DIY-ers know that  even when we have a detailed vision of our dream room or space, turning that vision into reality can be uber-challenging.  That's why a great set of instructions--the type of detailed instructions that are included as part of a professional interior design consultation, or, as part of an Out of the Box Room Design space plan--can make the difference between success and failure on just about every level:  sticking to a budget, meeting deadlines, and even fitting space requirements.
