How We Work

The first step in the design process is to visit our showroom and meet with a member of our professional design staff. An appointment is recommended so we can dedicate some time reviewing our product offerings and viewing a portfolio of some of our recent projects. It is a good idea to have a budget in mind and some general ideas of your wants and needs. We will also discuss the scope and time frame of your project. If you can provide us with reasonably accurate dimensions of your space, we can often generate preliminary cost estimation at no charge.

The second step is an in-home consultation. We will measure the space, and inspect for any special requirements. This is also a great opportunity to discuss any likes or dislikes of the current space.

The third step is the all-important design development stage. Your designer will implement the agreed-upon direction for design and create a preliminary scaled floor.
The fourth step and services beyond this point would include revising the floor plans, creating elevation drawings and possibly ordering materials.

The final step is upon your approval of drawings and specifications, your designer will have you complete contractual documents. These include specification of all agreed-upon products and services for your project. We will also discuss your schedule and completion of your project.

Design Fees and Retainers

Step 1 and 2 - No charge
Steps 3 through 5 - A design retainer fee is applicable for these extended services that are determined by the size and scope of your project. This fee will be credited from your contract price if you decide to proceed with the project.
