I have long term decorating plans but don’t have all the money right now. Can you still help?
When you are decorating your home we recognize that many projects need to be staged for affordability and convenience. Since we are a small company dedicated to our customers, we can devise a long term decorating plan that will keep your initial costs low while still accomplishing your goals today. With our planning, we can help you avoid the add-on look of a poorly designed piecemeal project. Visit our Portfolio for a sneak preview of our beautiful interiors.
How can an interior designer benefit me?
An interior designer can help you in many ways. Avoiding costly mistakes is just one of them. The benefit to the client using an interior designer’s services as opposed to a contractor or architect is that an interior designer starts the design with how the people who live in the space use it and works out from there to make the space fit them. It should be both beautiful and functional to be a successful project.
Please see our Why Use a Designer? page for a list of some common design mistakes that we can help you avoid.
Can I really afford to hire an interior designer?
Sensible Chic makes hiring the design help you need affordable in two ways; Since we are a small and efficient company focusing in San Diego, we can offer hands-on service at reasonable rates compared to large organizations with high overhead. Secondly, Sensible Chic does not mark up the cost of contractor labor, furniture or fixtures! Our clients pay only for our design time and work product; tools that you can use to continue your design efforts. To learn more specifics about our process and how we work, click here.

Why should I choose Sensible Chic?
Like you, we have grown tired of poor communication and lack of professionalism from people we have hired to do a job. Interior design is largely a referral business. Accordingly, we regard our customers’ satisfaction in the highest regard.
What distinguishes me from the competition: honest communication about issues that arise so they can be resolved before they become a problem, attention to detail, personalization of the space to be what the client wants and needs and to meet their goals; creative use of materials (great look for lower cost), I treat the client’s money as if it were my own to help them get the most bang for their buck. I don’t mark-up contractor labor or work exclusively with one product line; I sell my expertise so I can provide an unbiased analysis of what is best for the client.
