What is the Interior Design Process?
Step 1. Get In Touch.
In our first point of contact via phone or email we will schedule in an initial consultation of approximately 90 minutes to discuss the project. Before our meeting we will send you a list of useful things you can prepare to bring to the meeting.
Step 2. Initial Consultation.
Our designers will meet you onsite to discuss the interior design project. At this initial consultation we listen carefully to your requirements and take note of your priorities, budget and time frames. We will take a look at the entire footprint of the space and work with you to understand the scope of the project and what you are looking to achieve. We will also do a measure up for accurate detailed drawings and spacial planning to assist in the development of the concept and brief.
Step 3. Estimate.
Following our initial consultation we will prepare and email you a Project Proposal and Estimate for Design services.
Step 4. Design Brief & Concept Development.
On accepting our quotation we will arrange another meeting with you to review the brief, scope of work and budget. From here we will start developing ideas and refine the overall concept for the project. Our interior design team will prepare a detailed design proposal that is practical and within budget. It will include conceptual ideas and details such as materials, colours, finishes, spacial planning and flow.
Step 5. Design Sketches
Where required our team will provide you with a selection of designs and alternatives that meet your brief. We can discuss with you any further ideas and refine the final details that will be outlined in the detailed documentation.
Step 5. Sourcing & Scheduling.
Based on the agreed design sketches our team will begin the process of sourcing and documenting the finishes, fixtures and furnishings within the agreed budget and timing for the project. We will secure quotes, pricing, lead time and delivery details from our extensive supplier network.
Step 6. Detailed Drawings.
For internal spaces such as kitchens, bathrooms, wet areas or any other detailed elements for construction we will undertake the detailed drawings and schedule all of the selections for construction. We can work with your tradesmen or help you find licensed local trades for the project.
Step 6. Installation.
We will arrange for all items to be delivered to site and work with you and the trades to manage the project right through to completion.
