As businesses shut down and people stay at home during this COVID-19 pandemic, home owners are looking to decorate but finding it a challenge when their local interior designer are not able to visit the home. Designers are scrambling to add a new service to their toolbox called Virtual Interior Design or what I know it as, eDesign. The funny thing is eDesign is not a new service, it has actually been around for several years. If you are looking to redo your space affordably and want an easy approach to traditional interior design, then eDesign might be the right option for you.
The appeal of eDesign is that it is often quicker and easier for the client than traditional interior design because there are no in-person consultations required and fewer people involved in the project (contractors, freight, installers, etc.) And while it is quicker and cheaper, you do really need a more hands-on approach. Clients will be responsible to make their own purchases, style their own space, based on designer notes, and implement designs at their own pace and time.
Although there will always be a place and need for traditional interior design as well as an art for curated and trade only furniture, offering great design virtually is the future of interior design, one that is here to stay.
