Our initial consultation involves a detailed discussion with at least two of our professional designers (uniquely selected based on the scope of your project) to review your personal plans and ideas for your renovation. We assess the scope of your project, establish the parameters of the work involved, and provide you with design suggestions or general guidance. We will take notes during this discussion and provide you with a written summary. The meeting usually lasts, on average, two hours.
($120.00 for smaller scale projects with one professional designer)
Design Plans and Chronological Schedule
This service involves creating a step by step design plan, or chronological schedule, that will help keep your renovation moving in an efficient manner. Once the plan has been generated you may take the plan and execute it on your own or you may choose to work with us and our professional team to complete the work.
Fee: To be determined after Design Consultation (see above)
Kitchen and Bathroom Designs
Our team can create a floor plan and rendering fit for selected cabinetry companies to follow and build. Your visions are translated into 3D virtual images that allow you to see your project as if in "real life". These real life images include all cabinet styles, colours, countertops and appliances. These drawings are also beneficial to your contractor or sub-trades such as plumbers and electricians. We are on-site to make sure the electrical and plumbing elements are properly placed before cabinetry is installed. A kitchen and/or bathroom renovation can be a very expensive and a long term commitment - be sure to get it right the first time!
Estimated Fee: $20.00 per linear foot of cabinetry - average $1200.00
Lighting and Plumbing Specifications and Renderings
Our talented designers and decorators can work with you to source all mechanical elements that appeal to your sense of style and needs. These items include plumbing and/or lighting fixtures, as well as, appliances. We provide spec sheets and pictures of every item sourced and will present this to you in a labelled binder. It saves time and money to have these specified before the plumber and electrician are on-site. We can recommend and work with our trusted electricians and plumbers to ensure a guaranteed result.
Fee: $50.00 per hour
Sourcing Design Items and Creating Mood Boards
This is an exciting time in any project! Design and decor items include flooring, tile, paint, wallpaper, lighting, fabrics, window coverings, furniture and accessories. With the clients style in mind our designers get to work creating a mood board of design elements to help you pick your decor elements. Taking the time to put everything together on a mood board or creating floor plans, furniture plans and colour sample boards will ensure you only do this once. Getting it right the first time saves you time and money and a lot of unnecessary stress. This service provides you with a detailed board and binder of all sourced items.
Fee: $50.00 per hour
Note: average price is around a $1.00 per square foot of renovated space
Shopping for Decor Items
We all live very busy lives and most of us do not have the time to shop for items that will make our house feel more like a home. Our team of designers and decorators will be happy to do this for you - we love it! It is our greatest passion! After an initial meeting to discuss your style, personality and unique needs we will be off and running to find those pieces that are just right for you.
Fee: $50.00 per hour and 5% sourcing fee
Note: There are signigicant "trade discounts" when shopping with a designer - anywhere from 10-25% off retail which helps off set the cost of the designer fee.
