The first meeting consists of discussing the client’s ideas, determining the direction and scope of the project, as well as setting a budget. If we proceed with a design plan, a Letter of Agreement is provided and the next appointment is scheduled. Measurements and photos will be taken at this time to aid in the design process.
Design Plan and Selection
This is studio time where all aspects of the design plan are addressed. During this time frame, any construction plans, floor plans and other drawings are completed, as well as obtaining any necessary quotes from contractors. Selections are made for surfaces, finishes, colors, furnishings, window treatments, art, accessories, and any other materials that may be necessary. This phase usually is completed within two or three weeks at which time the second appointment with the client is scheduled.
The second appointment is where the design plan, selections, quotes, and schedule are presented for the client’s approval. It is typically more beneficial have the presentation at the job site to ensure all selections work well with the existing surroundings and any additional measurements can be taken. A deposit is required at this time to put the plan in action. While we are on target with selections most of the time, this is where any changes will be made. Your satisfaction is our priority!
Order and Production
After approval of the design plan and selections, the project goes into production. Materials are ordered and contractors, if necessary, are scheduled.
Many installations take place in a single day while others are a gradual process, especially in remodeling projects. Please be assured that we will do our best to keep things on schedule – we are happy to take that pressure off of the client! Once installations are complete, the final payment is collected and photographs are taken. The client may now enjoy their newly designed space that is uniquely their own!
