Are you wondering why you should consider hiring an Interior Designer when you decide to embark on a kitchen renovation? Are you worried about whether or not this is going to turn out like you envisioned? Are you confused about how to even begin the project? These are just a few of the concerns our clients have...there are a million little details in a kitchen renovation and YES hiring an Interior Designer will make it so much easier!


It starts with a phone call - YOU call us. We discuss your project, get a feel of what you have in mind, we LISTEN to your goals and ideas then we set our first appointment. After our initial call we'll email you a detailed questionnaire for you to fill out. It helps you get clear, provides "food for thought" and gives us a better understanding of your wants, needs, lifestyle and DREAMS. We also suggest that you look at our website and our Houzz page. Here you'll find lots of great ideas + you'll get to know us a bit. Please take time to put together an Idea Book so we can see what you like as well as what you don't like!


Next up - the Pow Wow at your home! Be prepared to share your "wish list" with us. Chances are, you've been saving or clipping pictures from magazines or the internet illustrating your design preferences for some time now. Plus if you've done your homework you'll have a Houzz Idea Book to share with us. We'll chat about the entire kitchen project from your perspective, offer some unique suggestions and ask about your budget. This is our "get to know each other" meeting. Plan on spending about 1.5 hours with us. We ask that all the decision makers attend this meeting. Then we go back to the studio, review our notes and figure out a budget for our design fee.



Next - we meet at your home again to discuss the Letter of Agreement. Once you have read it, asked questions and feel comfortable with the conditions you sign it and give us a deposit to start the project. We will take the guesswork out of your kitchen project, from measuring your space, to introducing you to the latest and greatest new products, to taking you to amazing showrooms, to selecting all the materials, to meeting with our incredible team which includes a general contractor and all the sub contractors that are involved in a kitchen renovation. After everything is selected we'll layout the space and provide drawings so you can visualize the final product. The general contractor will put together all the numbers then provide a proposal with the cost of the renovation. You will sign a construction contract directly with him but we'll be there to go over every detail. We partner with you guiding you through the decision making and design process, as well as offering support including project management throughout the entire process. As experienced professionals we transform your vision into reality.
