How the Design Process works
Initial Design Consultation:
We meet with clients for an initial consultation at their location. This consultation is for the purpose of getting to know you and your preferred styles, your wish-list, project requirements, budget and timeline. This may just be a color consultation, or it may consist of taking measurements, and photos of your space for future use on your project. It may be a coaching session, where we give you guidelines on a room makeover, and making suggestions for accessories or better space planning to help you achieve a new look on your own.
This is YOUR opportunity to get feedback from a design professional on any design questions you might have with your space.
We also offer consultations by phone and email for e-design clients who live out of state or who may commute between multiple homes. For more information about E-Design services please click here.
Design Concept Development:
If after an initial discussion or meeting, you would like to hire us for your design project, we will draw up a “Letter of Agreement” which outlines the specific scope of work and design services which will be provided to you at your request.
We will then begin the design development process which may consist of a complete room makeover, a floor plan layout of a single room, a paint color scheme for an entire space or in some cases, detailed drawings for a complete remodel.
Client Design Review & Presentation:
Once the design concept is completed it will be presented for your review. You may choose to take the design concepts, floor plans and other materials provided and implement them on your own, as well as handle your own purchasing or you can hire us to do the purchasing and coordination.
This service is offered to clients that don’t have the time or desire to do their own purchasing. We will create all of your purchase orders for the design developed as well as negotiate with vendors on the best price for you. Discounts from vendors are shared with the client (i.e., if the vendor gives us a 10% discount, the client will receive ½ of this discount or 5%). Once all purchase orders are completed and budget is approved by the client the buying process starts and coordination for delivery is set up.
This service is offered to clients who are doing remodels and new builds (Phase I Construction). Contractors and sub-contractors may be supplied by the client and supervised by the designer or the client may want the designer to refer contractors. In either case, a construction timeline is prepared by the designer which outlines who does what when. The client pays the contractors directly; a portion in advance and the balance upon satisfactory completion. The client may choose to do project management themselves or may elect to have the designer supervise the trades. Either way, there will be a final walk-through between the designer and the client.
The most critical part of a design may be the delivery and installation process. You prefer to have a designer at the job site during delivery and installation. We make sure that the process goes smoothly and designate where furniture and accessories need to be placed within each space. Once everything is finished there is a final walk through between the designer and client of the new space.
