The two most common reasons remodeling projects fail to meet expectations is a lack of planning and an unrealistic budget. This causes delays and unnecessary stress but more importantly it creates missed opportunities and regrets.

Our Design and Budget Consult provides you with the detailed information you need to start your project right.

A Design and Budget consult consists of two visits. A home visit followed by a showroom visit.

At the Home Visit

The inital home visit typcially takes 60 to 90 minutes. We’ll discuss your design goals and what you like/don’t like about your current space. We’ll also answer your questions and then take accurate measurements and pictures of the existing room.

At the Showroom Visit

The showrom visit takes about 90 minutes. We’ll have your Good Better Best budget ready for you to review. We’ll discuss design and product options and customize the budget to your neeeds.

After The Design and Budget Consult

After your design and budget consult the next step is to approve your budget and pay a 5% design retainer. We will then prepare an initial 3D design for you and review it at our first design meeting. It typically takes 2-4 design meetings and 2 more home visits to finalize all the details and create your fixed price proposal.
