Long Island Decorators

Decorators specialize in creating spaces in homes and offices that reflect the needs and desires of their clients. Decorators will work with a client to determine how a space will be used and how the client would like the space to look at feel once the decorator has completed their task. Decorators will use furniture and other items to decorate the space the client wants. Many decorators work with contractors in case a space needs structural changes to carry out the client’s wishes. Finding the right decorator to suit the client’s wishes can be challenging. Decorators often offer consultations to give potential clients a preview of the decorator’s ideas and costs involved. Decorators may specialize in commercial or residential spaces and will often have portfolios of their previous work for potential clients to look over.
