Time to Design

What does this mean?

Your designer will now start the design process. After gathering all the information from your first consultation & site visit, it is time to design. Your design will be based on your wishlist, lifestyle, & budget.

What happens?
  • Detailed floor plan
  • 2020 Rendering (3-D drawing)
  • Cost Estimate (based on your product preferences & budget)
  • Hand drawings (sometimes) to showcase more detail

*These designs are not final. They are rough draft ideas based on your previous meetings & can be changed to make your dream space come true.

Finalize & Order Product

Step #01234567890

Finalize & Order Product

Sometimes scheduling a third consultation to finalize product selection is a must. We want your new space to be exactly how you want it!

Final Product Selections:
  • Your final decision on cabinetry, countertops, flooring, etc.
  • Placing a deposit to order your materials.
  • Signature stating ready to order items.
Ordering Product:

After we receive a deposit, our designer will order your materials. They will then directly contact your contractors & schedule the necessary installations. Allowing you to stay at ease & stress free during the design process.

*Keep in mind, that there will be an additional charge for any changes made on materials after they have been ordered.

The Installation Phase

Step #01234567890

The Installation Phase

Now reality hits & your dream space is under construction! We offer project management for clients who are not working directly with their contractor. For an extra fee, your designer will be checking in at the job site throughout this phase. They do this to ensure your contractors and subcontractors (plumbers, tile contractors, etc.) are installing your product correctly based on what you discussed in your previous appointments.

Tips During The Kitchen Construction Phase:
  • Create a makeshift kitchen in a different room or your house with: microwave, toaster oven, toaster, & refrigerator.
  • Plan simple means or enjoy a lot of t.v. dinners.
  • Use paper plates & disposable utensils.

*Plan for the remodel to take longer than expected. For example, if given an ETA of 2 months plan on 3 or 4. Contractors & product supply isn’t always in the hands of your designers.
