‘Design for Hire’ program uses interior design for a good cause

Are you a fan of interior design? Can you spend hours watching D.I.Y. television? Are you embarking on a kitchen or bath remodel and need a little design guidance?

The American Society of Interior Designers Arizona North Chapter announces their annual “Design for Hire” public awareness/fundraising program through April 2016.

This exciting program is designed to help homeowners and design aficionados who have not worked with a professional Interior Designer previously but always wanted to, according to a press release. For the modest fee of $75 per hour (maximum 2 hours), the public is matched with an ASID Interior Designer.

Consumers who register are matched with a particular Designer based on location, project specifications and other parameters. The ASID Designers who participate in the program donate their consultation time. The fees collected are directed back to the organization for student design scholarships and educational programs that help further the profession of interior design, the release stated.

This event offers a way for homeowners to learn how designers provide a difference in their homes and lifestyle through their in-depth knowledge of space planning, products, materials and finishes, not to mention their ability to plan, schedule, execute and manage projects from start to finish.

To sign up e-mail info@azn.asid.org to sign up for “Design for Hire” and be matched with an ASID Designer. Or, visit www.asidaznorth.org.
