Want your own award-worthy design?
Every good design project should begin with getting acquainted. Before we can create a unique design plan for you, we want to get to know you and understand your needs, desires and expectations. Your home should reflect your unique personality and taste.
Design is about collaboration and, from our initial meeting through the final phase of your project, communication is key. Our design process is flexible and tailored to your needs. Some of our clients know exactly what they want and we help them accomplish it. Other clients prefer to be guided through the process.
Typically, the process will involve the following steps:
- We will provide an initial 30 minute consultation at your home at no cost. Any additional time spent is billed at a per hour rate.
- Following the initial consultation, a formal design proposal will be presented for your approval. Once accepted and signed, a design retainer is paid to initiate the process.
- After taking a series of careful measurements and photos of your space, we begin to formulate the conceptual designs along with listings of possible materials and finishes for your project. We will meet to discuss the options and revisit the original ideas and expectations to make sure every possible detail is included.
- When a final design is agreed upon, we will provide the final documents and specifications to both you and the general contractor on your project.
At your request, we will provide referrals to come of our area’s most experienced contractors and craftspeople, with whom we have personally worked and who have a proven track record of completing projects on time, on budget, and with exceptional quality.
The time frame for completion of your project will be dependent upon the timeliness with which decisions are made and the overall scope of the project. We will be in communication throughout the duration of the project, always available to address any questions that arise.
