Heilig-Meyers: How We Work
Come Prepared! Here’s How.
When it comes to your initial meeting with our interior decorator, a little preparation can go a long way. Before you get together, identify some of your style preferences and set goals regarding the functionality of your living space, your budget and your time frame.
Do some research by exploring designs and fine furniture online, in magazines and in books. Save appealing furniture pictures in a file. You can also tour model homes to generate new ideas for designs and color schemes, taking photos of the furniture along the way. Other design issues to consider:
- Decide how the living spaces you’re focusing on will be used. Get input from your entire family up front to ensure everyone’s needs are met.
- Prioritize your projects by focusing on the spaces that are most important to you.
Choose the best decorator for you.
All of Heilig-Meyers decorating team have proven talent, successful portfolios and professional credentials. They pride themselves on making the design process more enjoyable for you.
They also have these things in common:
- good listening skills

But, each designer also has a unique style, approach and personality. What matters most is that you select the right one for your design needs and someone with whom you are comfortable. A relaxed, open relationship with your interior designer is essential. You should feel completely at ease asking questions, making suggestions and communicating the end results you’re looking for.
