What's your style? Most of us have no idea what style would look the best in our homes or how to create the look we are after. This takes a special kind of creative person. Yet, that does not mean that we can not do it. In fact, a decorator can help you. If you do not want them to do the full task, you can have them just design the room for you and you can complete the work to save money.
Some companies that hire decorators will test them for their knowledge and skill. If you are working with a company that employs your decorator, make sure you know if they have passed a creative test. In addition, they will need to be able to provide you with a portfolio of work to showcase their talents.
