1. How do I know if I need an interior designer?
You may have little or no free time to coordinate and shop for home decor items and you feel completely overwhelmed by the number of choices available. You've torn out photos of rooms you like, but are unsure of how to coordinate some of the elements. You're very creative but don't know where to start with your current decorating project. Perhaps you’ve tried to decorate your home and have purchased a few nice items, but really need help pulling it all together. You thought decorating was supposed to be fun and this isn’t fun!
2. I’ve never worked with an interior designer before – how do they work?
There’s good news– the design process IS fun! Yes, it is a serious endeavor and can’t be undertaken without forethought. However, clients tell us time and again how easy and simple the whole design process was from start to fabulous finish. It is our mission to save you time and money by preventing the costly decorating mistakes of the past. With your own individual design plan in hand, you will have one of the most powerful tools we provide in achieving the beautiful and comfortable results you want.
Whether you need a one time design consultation, have a large project in mind or your plans are somewhere in between –Interior Reflections can help! The first step is to meet with you, ask questions and then listen. We will also take the time to introduce ourselves and let you know how our expertise can best serve you. Then we will map out a design plan for today and the future based on your needs and your budget.
You are in control regarding how involved you would like to be in the design process. Some of our clients just need direction and want our creative suggestions and ideas for their home. They prefer to do the legwork. Other clients want and understand the value of an effortless turnkey design.
With your vital input, we can develop the overall design plan and help establish a budget and time frame for the completion of your project. We have found that communication, trust and mutual respect are key ingredients in every successful designer-client relationship.
3. We are thinking of re-modeling our existing home or we may decide to build a new home. How can you help us in either event?
Before you get started with your remodeling investment, ask us to review your space planning needs, lighting design, kitchen layouts and/or bathroom renovations. Interior Reflections can recommend new products, styles, colors and designs that can enhance your project. Maybe you have some great ideas and you want to have quality work done but don't have your own list of reliable workmen, installers, and resources. Perhaps you want someone else to be responsible for ordering, shipping, coordinating, and installing.
Should you opt to build a new home, you may need professional design assistance in choosing the right colors, finishes and products that will endure for years to come. We can also help if you are thinking that any interior specifications should be changed before building begins. Interior Reflections offers 20 years of proven experience working with clients and their builders.
