You’re debating over hiring an interior designer, but before you officially make that decision, you want to see who’s out there and what they can offer. 

And you’re doing exactly what you should right now – you’re doing your research!  

Choosing a designer to work with isn’t the type of decision you make on a whim. You’re looking to partner up with someone that is helping you create your dream space. It’s an intimate and personal affair, one that you need to be mindful of. And if that requires taking a little extra time to find the right fit – so be it!   

As much as you’re taking the time to find the right interior designer, they put that same care and attention into selecting the right products for you! And because of our selection and the quality we offer, we’ve had many interior designers come through our doors at McElheran’s Furniture + Design. For as long as we’ve been around (since 1994) we’ve worked with some of the best designers in the area because we all have the same goal: to help you create the best possible living space in your home. 

We haven’t worked with all of these designers in this article, but we’ve seen their impressive work on various projects throughout Edmonton. And this will give you a comprehensive look at who’s out there and what kind of work they can do for you. We’ve looked at Houzz reviews, Google and Facebook reviews, experience, reputation, and recognition in the design community to determine the top 10 designers in Edmonton (in no particular order).
