Before you ever sign a contract with your client you are being judged. The moment he or she walks into your office the client is making judgments and assumptions based upon what they see within your office space. If you are just keeping your items in folders scattered around the floor of your living room you appear unprofessional. It is irrelevant what your business skills are because all the client sees is the sloppy side of your business. It would be a shame to lose potential business over something as minor as décor. On the other hand you also have the ability to win over new customers with your personal office design. Going back to our lawyer example you may want to have your office looking like a law library and a professional space that tells any visitors that you are a top of the line lawyer.
Preparing a space like this can be challenging on your own. After all your expertise is not in design but, there are people who can do this for you. Interior decorating services are specifically designed to help people decorate the area for each specific need. They will take your visions and apply them to the space around you. They can take that empty dull living room and transform it into a professional work space that is conducive to your job and professional in appearance to your clients. Off the top of your head you may be thinking that an interior decorator would be a waste of time and money but, it would only take one customers to pay off your professional space decorating. Once you get a space designed it will stay that way for years and the cost is very minimal. Most interior decorators do so as a side business. Most of those businesses don’t pay enough for a full time salary but, as a potential client this is a good thing for you. First of all, you can often negotiate and receive a great price on services. This is great on its own for saving money but, since the business is small you are most likely the only customer at that moment. This means that you are on the top of the priority list and your job will be finished as fast as humanly possible. No longer will you be dealing with contractors that take months to finish a job.
