The 7 Key Benefits of Using an Interior Designer When Relocating Homes 

Aug 31, 2023 | Corporate, Private

Here at Claymore Thistle, we are driven to make relocating homes a smooth and enjoyable process for each and every client.  Continually thinking outside the box on how to bring valuable support to our clients unearthed our newest partnership with online Interior Design firm, Designbx. Kerena Berry, Director and Head Designer at Designbx shares the insightful benefits of using an interior designer when relocating, and how their expertise can transform your new home into a personalised and harmonious haven.

From packing and organising to finding a new place to call home, the process involves numerous decisions that can significantly impact your living environment. This is where an interior designer who specialises in relocations and product sourcing can become an invaluable asset. Let’s share how. 


1. Save Time and Reduce Stress:

Relocating is a time-consuming and stressful process. Investing in an interior designer can alleviate much of that burden by taking over the responsibility of designing your new home. Interior designers possess a deep understanding of design principles, space planning, colour schemes, materials, and trends. They hold the knowledge, experience, and resources to efficiently manage the entire design process, from conceptualisation to implementation. By entrusting the design to a professional, you can focus on other crucial aspects of the move, knowing that your new space will be beautifully designed and ready for you to settle into on arrival.

2. Tailored Design Solutions:

Interior designers are experts in creating functional and aesthetically pleasing spaces. When relocating, they can assess your new home’s layout, architectural elements, and personal style to develop a tailored design plan. They will consider your functional needs, preferences, and lifestyle, incorporating them into a cohesive design that reflects your unique personality. With an eye for detail and an understanding of design principles, interior designers can optimise your space and create a harmonious ambience throughout.

3. Cost-Effective Choices:

Contrary to popular belief, hiring an interior designer will more than likely save you money. With their industry connections, they can source materials, furniture, and accessories at discounted rates, which won’t be accessible to the general public. Designbx utilises our established connections within the industry to provide clients with cost-effective design options from 100’s of suppliers both locally and internationally. Additionally, interior designers have extensive knowledge about various brands and will guide you towards durable and high-quality products that align with your budget. By preventing costly mistakes and ensuring a well-planned design, they can help you make wise investment choices for your new home.

4. Access to Professional Network:

Interior designers have established relationships with contractors, artisans, and suppliers within the industry. When relocating, you may need reliable professionals to handle renovations, installations, or repairs. Your designer can tap into their network and recommend trustworthy experts, saving you the hassle of searching for reputable service providers on your own. This network also grants access to exclusive resources and unique design elements that can elevate the overall aesthetic of your new home.

5. Enhanced Functionality and Space Utilisation:

Moving into a new home presents an opportunity to rethink your living space and optimise functionality. An interior designer can assess your daily routines, storage needs, and traffic flow to design spaces that are efficient and practical. They can offer creative solutions to maximise storage, suggest layout modifications, and recommend furniture placement to ensure your new home is both visually appealing and highly functional.

6. Attention to Detail: 

Interior designers pay meticulous attention to details such as lighting, texture, proportions, and spatial relationships. They consider every aspect of the design, ensuring that all elements work harmoniously together. Designbx prides itself on its commitment to detail-oriented design, creating cohesive, personalised and well-executed interiors.

7. Value Addition: 

Well-designed spaces not only enhance the quality of living but also add value to the property. Whether it’s a residential or commercial project, a professionally designed space can increase its appeal, marketability, and potential resale value. Designbx understands the importance of creating spaces that have a lasting impact and maximise the value of the client’s investment.


Relocating homes is an ideal time to reimagine your living environment and create a space that truly feels like home. By enlisting the expertise of an interior designer, you can save time, reduce stress, and benefit from their tailored design solutions. 

Their professional network and cost-effective choices can help you make the most of your budget while ensuring high-quality results. Ultimately, an interior designer can transform your new house into a personalised sanctuary that reflects your style, enhances functionality, and sets the stage for a fulfilling and comfortable living experience.

The Claymore Thistle team believe so strongly in the value of investing in Interior Design that Director and owner Leona, is designing her new home with the Designbx Team – we look forward to sharing the amazing results in a follow-up blog.
