Most of our design services begin with a 2-hour design consultation. Our 2-hour design consultation is a working consultation that can be a one-time service or the starting point for additional services. What do we mean when we say that this is a working consultation? It means that we are going to spend 2 hours with you coming up with a design plan for your space. Whether you intend to do the design work yourself or retain us to do it for you, we always start things off with a consultation.
We realize that not everyone needs or requires full-service design. We also understand that some people have a vision for their space but need some help with pulling all their ideas together. That’s why we offer this service as a stand-alone service. Of course, we have additional services should you need further guidance and/or help. Our main goal is to get you past the pinning to Pinterest phase to finally creating the home of your dreams.
So, what will we discuss during the consultation? We’ll discuss many things such as:
- Who we are and how we work
- The scope of your project. What challenges or dilemmas are you struggling with?
- The goals and vision you have for your space
- Your taste and design style (likes and dislikes)
- Your lifestyle
Once we’ve finished learning more about you and your project, we’ll provide you with assist you with:
- Determining your style
- We’ll help you determine the right paint color for your space
- Space planning & furniture layout
- We’ll assist you with selecting furnishings for your space
- We will revisit the budget topic and help you come up with a realistic budget for your project
- Window treatment ideas
- Artwork & accessory selections
- Lighting ideas
- Styling tips
- Lastly, we will answer any questions you may have
During the consultation, you are encouraged to take notes. Once the consultation is complete, we will briefly summarize what we discussed. This ensures that we leave you with a solid plan to complete your project.
If after the consultation you still feel like you need additional design assistance, you’ll have the option to move on to one of our other design services. Don’t worry, we’ll help you choose the service that will be best for your situation.
The fee for our consultation is $325, which is due at the time of service. We gladly accept check or money order for our consultation service.
