Interior Design Services

Your kitchen and bathrooms can be (re)designed and organized to support your household’s lifestyle.

The approach taken for each Renovation or New Build is based upon the Design | Build mindset, which considers the project as a whole.  It combines the planning and design, with the estimating and scheduling of your project. 

Design Service Options

Every household has different needs, and each homeowner will have their individual set of priorities.
We tailor the design service options to suit.

Design Management Process

The Design | Build approach helps capture the time that can be lost in a traditional design-bid-build structure.  We ensure the products you’re drawn to are suitable to your lifestyle, within your budget, and will be available when we’ll need them.

1. Introduction

I. Contact

Fill out the Introductory Contact Form (below), or email [email protected]

I’ll respond with some follow-up questions, and initial phonecall arrangement options.

II. Phonecall

During this initial phonecall, I collect details of your project.  You tell me about your household and lifestyle.

III. Interaction

To expediate the initial steps of the design process, you can send preliminary measurements of your space (typically just the kitchen, at this point).  A worksheet is available to help guide you through collecting your own measurements. The dimensions will all be personally confirmed.

Alternatively, I can come to your home initially, to collect the measurements. 

2. Discovery

I. Design Proposal

I email you a detailed preliminary Design Proposal, tailored to your needs, along with a request for a retainer (this amount depends on your package).

II. Collaboration

I create the existing footprint of your space (typically the kitchen, in particular), and come to confirm my dimensions in your home.  We discuss preliminary plans, and a general direction for your renovation.

3. Space Planning

I. Kitchen and/or Bathroom Layout Options

Typically 3-5 Preliminary Layout Options, depending on your priorities, and the possibilities of the space. This is where much time is spent exploring household and lifestyle patterns and needs.

II. Selection Sheet and Budget

I provide a line-itemized budget for all selections to be made for your renovation.  You receive the Supplier Registry.

4. Design Development

I. Sourcing (aka Shopping)

Online browsing allows homeowners to become familiar with materials.  Virtual tours of supplier’s showrooms are convenient and arrangements are made to visit showrooms when required.

II. Design Scheme Concepts

Product, material and finish options are explored.

III. Finalize Floorplan

Utility service locations are determined  and your cabinet layout is finalized.  

Design Selections
Showroom Visits

This is when the process can start to differ based on your individual needs.
My role from this point on depends on the Design Services required.

5. Documentation

I. Tradespeople

For Design Packages B & C, we bring in the tradespeople to provide estimates.

II. Project Estimate

We firm up your budget and update the project estimate. 

III. Ordering & Scheduling

The construction and installations are scheduled.  We order products and materials.  

6. Construction

I. Site Preparation & Demolition

The home is prepared for the kitchen renovation, and the demolition and removal of existing takes place.

II. Rough-ins

Products and materials start to arrive and utility services are roughed-in.  I meet tradespeople onsite to ensure directions are clear.

III. Installation & Finishing

I make periodic jobsite visits, and monitor that tasks are done to product specifications.

eDesign Efficiency

There is slight modification to the typical method of learning about your household lifestyle, habits and family interaction.  eDesign is an efficient approach that can be implemented if/when suitable, and/or more convenient for you.   It simply allows for a level of virtual interaction, in the earliest stage, via a combination of phone/video calls and digital document sharing.

Time

Effective process maximizes productivity.  Sometimes it just saves some time and gas!

Money

Sometimes less sourcing time is required when online searches are possible.  Most suppliers’ websites list pricing so budgeting can be monitored.

Convenience

Space planning, design, and shopping is all possible online, initially.  Even as the project progresses, the system is designed to operate digitally.

Health

Although distancing measures are no longer enforced, sometimes communicating digitally is just handy!  Zoom calls are convenient and efficient.
