We are here for you. I cannot stress this enough! We want to get to know who you are, your dream for your home, how you want to use your space, and how best we can make it feel like home. With our knowledge in composition, color theory, and functionality we know how to make a space feel open and inviting! Whether that means completely redesigning the space or simple finish and furnishing suggestions, we will work with you and your budget. From space planning and conceptual drawings to mood boards and samples, we want to convey our vision clearly so that dreaming up the possibilities for your new space feels like an exciting collaboration! We also know specific questions to ask the contractor and are trained to speak the language of construction, so nothing will be lost in translation and we can communicate with you in a way that makes sense!
We do the logistical stuff so you don’t have to
We make your life easier! We do all of the hard work up front, so that once construction starts everything can go as smoothly as possible. Not only will we handle all of the sourcing, deliveries, and scheduling but we also put together a final design folder for your reference. This includes all of your drawings, renderings, photos, and spec sheets…basically your dream home in a folder. The reason we’re so specific when it comes to drawings and specifications is because the more detailed we are with our drawings in the beginning the less confusion there is when it comes time to install. So kick back, relax and know that we’ve got this!

We save you time and well, time is money!
Hiring a designer to work up a set of drawings before you hire a contractor will allow the contractor to prepare a bid faster and more accurately. When it comes to the world of construction little misunderstandings can be costly! Know that when you hire a designer it’s our job to ensure our documents and drawings are as clear and accurate as possible to the construction team. We know what the contractor wants to see in a set of drawings and specifications and can communicate directly with them if any questions arise, ensuring nothing gets lost in translation, saving you time and money!
So you’ve decided it’s a good idea to hire a designer, but are nervous on how to budget for one! Well, Designers usually work on either an hourly basis or a fixed rate. Designers will give you an estimate on how many hours they think your project will take and you can work together from there to find what’s possible for your budget. Hiring a designer doesn’t have to be scary! We are here to guide you and make you feel more at ease and taken care of through your remodeling process. I can tell you with 100% confidence that hiring us early on in the planning stages of your next remodel will save you time, money, and most importantly your sanity!
