Deciding how to proceed with an interior design project in Port Stephens is a big deal. There's a lot riding on it.... will your colour choices work, make the space bigger, smaller, warmer, cooler? Will they work with your finishes and materials, will your flooring work? And how can you be sure?

The best thing for Port Stephens residents to do is to hire a locally based interior designer to make these decisions and deliver an end result that wows and that you'll be proud to show off. Here are 7 reasons why Port Stephens residents should a hire a local or Newcastle, NSW based interior designer...

1. Sourcing

Interior designers have the contacts and suppliers to source hard to find or unique pieces, the special ones that only the professionals can access because of the world they move within.

2. It's personal

Of course it is. And it should be. It's your space, so it should be all about you, not your designer. An interior designer for Port Stephens like Julie Evans Design knows that it's all about you - not about them.

Your interior design is deeply personal to your needs and tastes. A designer like Julie Evans' job is to listen to you and execute so that your end vision is realised and delivered.

3. Marrying form and function

An interior designer has the training and experience to marry the form or design of your space along with its function. One without the other doesn't work, and will leave you disappointed and looking for improvement. While your space needs to look great, it also has to function well and marrying these two factors is what a professional interior designer does.
