Elizabeth Leahy joins once more to talk about the role that interior design plays in real estate.

Today I’m joined once more by interior designer Elizabeth Leahy to talk about the role of interior design in the real estate business. 

In the previous video (which you can find here), we talked a little about what type of services she provides, how interior design helps homeowners, and what common mistakes builders and homeowners commonly make when it comes to interior design. 

This time, we’ll dive deeper into the finer points of interior design. Once again, here’s an outline of our conversation, with timestamps so that you can skip around to the section(s) that interest you most:

0:40—The two immutable truths of interior design: proportion and scale 
2:04—Which current trends are long-lasting and which aren’t? 
3:08—What’s the best material for countertops?
4:41—The difference between quartz and quartzite 
6:41—Elizabeth’s recommendations for those looking to upgrade their flooring
7:41—The cost of luxury vinyl tile compared to regular hardwood
8:25—What does it cost to hire someone like Elizabeth?
9:50—Wrapping things up 

If you’d like to reach out to Elizabeth about a project, send her an email to elizabeth@leahyinteriordesign.com, visit her website, or give her a call at (858) 229-2861.

If you have any other real estate-related questions for me in the meantime, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
