A new generation of kitchen decorators says they are looking for a long-term commitment, even if they are busy on the holidays.
With the number of decorating jobs growing at a fast clip, it can be tough to keep up with demand.
But with the rise of Instagram, Facebook and the likes, there is a new generation out there, says Lisa Lutz, an independent decorator based in Ottawa, Canada.
“It is not a question of having to pick up and move every day,” she says.
“This is the generation that is more aware of social media and it’s been a big thing for us to see.”
Many of the younger decorators are in a new market segment, which they say has evolved into one that is becoming increasingly lucrative.
The trend is driven by people who want to create their own little wall in their home, Lutz says.
They’re doing it on the weekends and even in the evenings.
“We get more people calling and they are asking for wall decorating.
They are saying, ‘Can I do this on a Saturday?’ and we’re like, ‘Yes.
Do it this weekend.'”
They are not going out for the dinner party.
They don’t go to the parties.
They come home and do it for a weekend.
They’re just doing it at home,” she adds.
Some are making their own, using simple items, such as a small Christmas tree or a few candles.
The decorators have found that people are becoming more and more comfortable decorating their homes, Lutts says.
Lutz says she hopes her decorating tips will be helpful for anyone trying to make their home a little more unique, but she also hopes her tips will help her clients become more self-confident.””
I am a small business and I have had people come up to me and say, ‘How did you do that?'”
Lutz says she hopes her decorating tips will be helpful for anyone trying to make their home a little more unique, but she also hopes her tips will help her clients become more self-confident.
“I’m just trying to help them out in a way that makes them feel like they are part of the family,” she explains.
“They’re not just a guest at the party.
I’m a family member.”
A lot of the decorators that have started making their home-made decorations have also found themselves in a tough spot.
Many have had to close down their businesses.
“There are times when I feel like I’m going to lose it,” says Lutz.
“You have to do it yourself.
I have to make sure I’m in control of everything.
I can’t go out and do this every weekend.
If I am making it for someone else, they are going to want to buy it for themselves.”
Lutz recommends getting creative with how you decorate your home.
“Some people like to make a lot of noise.
Some people like the look of it,” she advises.”
For me, it is very important to create a quiet place where I can sit down and relax and have a nice meal,” she concludes.
