It’s no secret to anyone living in the US that Americans work hard. If you’ve ever spent time abroad then you know that the average American spends a few more hours a week at work than people in other countries around the world. While there are certainly some countries out there that are comparable, most recent studies have found that Americans work more than any other nationality of people around the world, albeit by small numbers compared to countries like Germany. Still, the main point here is that Americans work a great deal, and that particular point isn’t really up for debate. While you might feel that working less is good for your health and helps you maintain your relationships, the fact remains that those feelings likely aren’t enough to keep you from working at least 45 hours a week if you’re American.
There are lots of consequences of working these kinds of hours, and not all of them are bad. For example, it’s certainly a good thing to have a healthy work ethic. It helps to give you a purpose in the world, and working tends to be good for your health. However, there are some definite downsides as well, and a lack of time to do other things is chief among them. It’s this lack of time that helps explain why so many Americans hire housekeepers to take care of chores around their home and to do their cleaning. It’s also why large numbers of homeowners in the US are hiring a residential decorator.
Residential decorator is just another term for interior designer, and it refers to people who have made their profession by decorating and designing the interiors of people’s homes. Most Americans like to have a home that looks and feels great. They like this both because it makes it more enjoyable to spend time at home and also because it improves the look of their home when guests visit. Of course, since the average American is spending more than forty hours per week at work it shouldn’t come as a surprise that many of them simply can’t find the time to decorate and design the interior of their home. Unless they’re single and they don’t have any other social obligations, people simply don’t have the time it takes to really make a home pop.
When you hire a residential interior designer you’re hiring someone that takes care of the entire process. That means they sit down and consult with you about what you’re looking to achieve, they visit the store to purchase all of the things you’re going to need, they check back with you to see if you still want what you both originally agreed on, and then they take care of all of the manual labor. This could mean knocking down walls, repainting walls, taking out counters and replacing them, moving furniture around, switching out the flooring, and so much more. It’s a huge amount of work that can take weeks to finish. The amount of time such projects can take is just another reason why busy Americans hire outside help for the job.
