Renovs Benefits Our Client

The Challenges Faced By The Online Interior Design Consultancy Market

When our client started designing and furnishing her house, she stumbled upon some problems.

challnge-design

The client was designing her own house and wanted to get some professional advice. She was looking for an online platform where she could talk to a professional interior designer and get advice on what kind of centerpieces would suit the room or where to place a particular furniture piece. There are no such consulting platforms. She would have to hire a designer to get their help.

challnge-budget

There are many platforms for hiring interior designers, but they are expensive. The designer would present a full design and furnishing plan for anywhere between $200 – $1200. It was costly and not what our client wanted. She wanted to furnish her house on her own with a minimum budget, without hiring a designer.

challnge-design

Another challenge our client faced was that she was unable to filter the many interior designers on these websites based on their design style. She had a specific aesthetic in mind for each room in her house and did not know which designer would understand and share her home decor styles.

Renovs : Our Online Interior Design Consulting Solution

We developed Renovs – an online marketplace for hiring interior designers for one-on-one consultations with a minimal consultation fee.
