Service begins with a free consultation at your home. We will discuss your likes and dislikes, the style and purpose of your needs. Discussion of how to covey this through the renovation process and choosing specify room materials that will meet your design and budget will follow. I feel this is a crucial step to developing a client-designer relationship. Amongst the many things to learn from the interview stage, is the taking of measurements and pictures of your space to fully understand and make reference to throughout the design process. Consultation usually takes one hour or less and appointment time is available M-F from 10 am-8 pm. After the interview stage, a quote will be mailed to you. Upon approval, a retainer is then collected and research begins.
Phase One (Beginning of service) – Michelle will do research and create a visual display of the design for your space, including all sample materials: fabric paint chips, floor and wall coverings, appliances, kitchen cabinet door fronts, faucets, hardware and tiles.
Phase Two (Finalization of design plan) – Michelle will create three designs for you to choose from and will include three consultations to allow for editing and changes.
Phase Three (Project management) – Pictures of the renovation will be taken at every step and e-mailed to you so that you will be informed at different stages and can be actively involved in work done as the project progresses.
All jobs are managed by Michelle personally. She will oversee the construction process and manage the project effectively from beginning to end. This includes research, organization of work flow and communication with vendors, following up with suppliers and ensuring quality workmanship. She will also be responsible for delegating every aspect of the project such as site checks and scheduling of all subcontracting and vendor work and installations. This is meant to keep you worry free throughout the design and installation process. Your project will flow smoothly without the typical frustrations and headaches.
