The biggest benefit of DIY interior design is typically the cost. While most DIY designers don���t have wholesale licenses to get discounts on textiles and other furnishings, the money they save by not paying a professional designer���s fees can buy, for example, job lots at tile, fabric and carpet warehouses. Even a small materials budget can go farther when the homeowner sources the supplies himself.
Because DIY interior design is done on the homeowner���s schedule, design plans can grow and change quickly. For instance, if a homeowner decides on a custom tile job, he can delay renovations while he takes tile installation classes at a home improvement center.
