  • The designer never visits your home or space which means that some elements might not be addressed to. 
  • The styling will fall on you, if it is not detailed displayed in visuals
  • Project relays on the client to measure the space. Has to be right.
  • Hiring local contractors and workers usually falls on the client
  • Assembly and arrangement of furniture is on you

The above Pro’s and Con’s can, of course, vary depending on the services that the virtual interior designer is providing. Some might be more focused on decoration, and some might have broader services that even include connecting you to the right contractor.

Now I am curious what do you guys think of these types of services? Would you encourage other interior designers to follow? 

I look forward to discussing this with you :)
