Do I need an Interior Architect?

The best way to decide if an architect or designer is right for your space is to look at some of the work they have completed in the past to see if their style and taste matches your desired outcome.  Quick internet searches can help, but the best way to really vet an interior architect is to visit some of the commercial and retail spaces they have been a part of designing to really get to know their personality and style.

Like a lot of things in life, once you’ve found an architect you love that you think can really help turn your space into a productive haven for your employees or a tantalizing shopping experience for your customers, you may be surprised by the price tag that comes along with the services they provide.  Interior architects can often charge a surprising amount for their services.  In many cases, it may seem like you have no other option than paying that fee because you need the drawings in order to get your project started.  The reality is you may have another option available to you that can save you a lot of money and still provide you with the detailed engineering drawings to work from.

Interior space planners can accomplish the same tasks as an architect at a fraction of the price.  At Carolina Services Inc. we have a dedicated team that can help you with your space planning and design project.  Our team specializes in commercial interior design and we can combine our expertise and experience with your initial vision for your new space.  We then can design everything we’ve agreed upon using the same software that architects and engineers use giving you everything you need to move forward.

An added benefit of working with our space planning team is that when you need to make changes or adjustments we can approve those changes quickly and easily in-house.  This means we can help your project stay on budget and on its timeline for completion.  For more information on how our space planning team can save you time and money, visit our website to learn more about Carolina Services’ space planning and design team.
