Traditional interior design services involve meeting with a designer at your home. The designer asks questions about your decorating needs, records room measurements and takes photos throughout the space. Based on this information, you receive a custom design proposal that includes a furniture plan and an inspiration board detailing colors, furnishings and accessories. With your approval, the designer oversees the design process from demolition to installation.
A more budget-friendly option, e-design works similarly to on-site design, but all work is done remotely. You provide the photos, measurements and inspiration images for your space. Some e-designers also ask you to fill out a questionnaire to better understand your design preferences. With this information, the designer sends you either by e-mail or postal service a design package, which usually includes an inspiration board, furniture plan and shopping list of items.
Niche Design Services
If your project requires attention in specific areas such as a lighting issue or a kitchen remodel, consider working with a niche designer. Along with their general design knowledge, these individuals are experts in their field thanks to continuing education and extensive experience.
More than choosing lamps, lighting design focuses on the task and ambient lighting of your space. A cohesive lighting plan specifies attractive fixtures that also provide functional lighting solutions for your design project. Kitchens and baths are often the hardest-working rooms in your house. Specialized designers focus solely on creating these spaces, which not only includes decorating but also the plumbing and electrical components that make them functional.
