La-Z-Boy Free Interior Design Service vs DIY Interior Design: An In-Depth Review

La-Z-Boy In-Home Design vs DIY Interior Design

At La-Z-Boy Southeast, people often ask us, “What are the benefits of Do-It-Yourself or DIY interior design?” DIY projects are savvy ways to save money and take care of chores around the house. Unfortunately, most people don’t know where to get started with interior design and the number of choices you have to make can be overwhelming.

Interior designers, on the other hand, can furnish your home for you; however, these services often come with much higher costs.

One alternative to hiring an interior designer and doing-it-yourself is working with the Free La-Z-Boy Interior Design Program. In this article, we take an in-depth look at the differences between working with La-Z-Boy and doing-it-yourself.

How Much Does La-Z-Boy & DIY Interior Design Cost?

When it comes to home projects, making the choice to do-it-yourself is usually a major money saver. However, this is not the case with interior design projects.

Taking advantage of the La-Z-Boy Interior Design Program will cost you the exact same as doing-it-yourself: you will not pay interior designer fees. You will only pay for the furniture you decide to purchase. But, you’ll get the added bonus of having the help from a professional design team.

The La-Z-Boy Interior Design Program is a free service offered to every one. This program gives you access to a degreed interior designer for free.

Whether you choose to do-it-yourself or work with the La-Z-Boy In-Home Design Program, you will save around $5,000 by not hiring an interior designer.

Working Within Your Budget

Working within your interior design budget is tough. During the process, you will see many things you’ve “got to have” when suddenly you find yourself over-budget before the room is even close to being finished.

La-Z-Boy’s professional interior designers always keep your budget in mind. They start with an in-store consultation to ask a few questions about your goals, style, and room size.

Next, your interior designer will arrange a time to visit your home to observe scale, traffic flow, and design features.

After these consultations, you will be presented with a complimentary design plan with options based around your budget.

Keeping Control of Your Interior Design Project

A lot of people choose the do-it-yourself route so they can have full control over the look and design of their room. And that’s great!
If you have an eye for design and enjoy shopping for furniture, then designing the interior of your home can be a very rewarding process.

Working with the La-Z-Boy Interior Design Program also gives you complete control of the look of your home. Our interior designers are a free resource to answer any of your questions and provide direction only if you need it.

One benefit of working with La-Z-Boy is the 3D Room Planner. This software program can quickly and easily create, redecorate, and rearrange your room digitally without any of the usual heavy lifting. This helps you get a better idea of how your newly furnished room will look.

There are no risks to working with the La-Z-Boy Interior Design Program. You’re able to make all of the final decisions for your project. Plus, you don’t have to put any money down and can walk away at anytime. We are simply here to help make the experience of furnishing your home as comfortable as possible.

The La-Z-Boy Interior Design Program has helped thousands of customers complete their interior design project on time and under budget. Our professional interior designers help you make faster decisions, narrow down overwhelming choices, and stop you from making expensive mistakes.

Furnishing Your Room With High Quality Products

Design and style are two very important factors when picking out home décor and furniture. But you also want to make sure the products you are buying are high quality.

Some furniture companies use low quality materials and build their products overseas. These products don’t stand up to everyday wear & tear and will not have a long lifespan. If you are furnishing your home on your own, be sure to check where the furniture is made and what it is made out of.

La-Z-Boy Furniture is made in the USA from the highest quality American-sourced materials. Here is where La-Z-Boy sources a few of our materials:

  • Steel: Tennessee & Alabama
  • Springs: Indiana & North Carolina
  • Foam: Mississippi
  • Hardwood Framing: Kentucky & Louisiana

Our manufacturing plants produce 8,000 pieces of furniture a day and employ more than 7,500 Americans. When you work with the La-Z-Boy In-Home Design Program, you can guarantee you’re buying some of the highest quality furniture on the market.
