The Design Process

The first step of the design process is the initial Consultation, which takes place at the client’s location and consists of a question and answer session. Our designers will inquire about what the client wants done. We inquire about such things as color, fabric, furniture styles as well as how you want the space to feel and function when it’s completed. We will also discuss who will be using the space including children, the elderly, persons with health issues or physical disabilities, pets, etc. The answers to these questions help us to tailor the space to fit the specific needs of the user. Finally, we will take measurements and photographs of the space in addition to looking at other areas of the home, office or facility to get an idea of the client’s style and create continuity throughout the space. This initial meeting usually lasts up to two hours.

Following our interview, our designers will take the information we gathered and begin putting together a design scheme for your home or business. We then set up a second meeting for the presentation. This consists of a floorplan, colors, furnishings, fabrics, finishes, window treatments, etc. to give you a clear picture of how we will transform your space. We will also present you with an estimate for the work and make recommendations as to the best way to proceed. If there is anything you don’t like, we will make changes to suite your preferences until you are pleased with the design.
Once the client signs off on the design and budget, we collect the deposit and begin the ordering and production process. We have a solid process in place to control and track our projects so that we can meet our expected deadlines. If any issues arise, they are addressed immediately. Our staff is always accessible and responsive to our clients. We pride ourselves on maintaining quality and completing projects within the projected time frame.

The final stage in the process is the installation. If the space requires painting, flooring, tile, etc. we will set up a separate date for this prior to the final installation. For the final installation, we will set up a date that is convenient with you and our design team will place furniture, hang window treatments, hang art, accessorize, etc. to achieve the desired look and feel.
