Are you looking for interior design in St. Louis? Interior design is a combination of creative art and science. The two together enhance the interior of a house or any type of building to reach a healthier and a more visually attractive environment. 

Interior Design + Designers

An interior designer does the research, plans, coordinates, and supervises the interior design projects. Interior design is a multidimensional profession that includes abstract development, space design, site inspection, programming, communication with the investors of the project, research, construction administration, and the implementation of the decided upon design.

Types of Designs

There is certainly a lot of interior design companies in St. Louis to choose from.

Let’s look below at some of the different types of designs to help choose which design is best for your home. Many people choose to design just their living room because that is where they spend most of their family time and gathering with friends and on holidays. That in return will help you decide which design is right for your needs.

  • Modern style
  • Transitional style
  • Midcentury style
  • Contemporary style
  • Traditional style
  • Farmhouse style

The six styles listed above are some of the most common home designs. However, you are not limited to those six. Other designs include Hollywood glam, vintage, tropical, Victorian, rustic, Mediterranean, and several other designs. A good interior designer can create any look you like for your home, including a combination of styles.

Designer Styles + Ideas

Once you have decided to redo the interior of your home, you must decide on a design.

There are several different types of designs (see list above). If you are having trouble deciding or simply do not have an eye for interior design, then you’re in luck.

Designers specialize in which throw pillow goes best with what accent rug, calming a chaotic floor plan, what is currently trending and/or evergreen, which tile floor will go best with your cabinetry, how to gain space in a small area such as a child’s bedroom or play area, the best light fixtures, how to give the illusion of a sunken living room, how to get the most room out of a small bathroom and just about anything else you can think of.

You must have trust in your designer; let them know what you would like and the two of you can work together.
