HOW WE WORK AND HOW TO WORK WITH A PROFESSIONAL INTERIOR DESIGNER
Before contacting us or any other interior designer, take some time to think about what you want, what you need & what is the ultimate end result.
No matter where we start, these are some very important questions to consider regarding your project:
- For whom is the space being designed and what activities will take place there?
- How long do you plan to occupy the space?
- What is your time frame?
- What is your budget?
- How do you want your space to feel and what image do you want to project?
- What is the approximate square footage of the space to be designed?
At this point, you may feel overwhelmed, but please don't worry.
We at Boulevard Interiors will lead you through the design process. We strongly encourage you to start and keep an idea book of images you like (printed materials and digital.) The more information you provide, the more successful we, the designers, will be in meeting your needs and expectations. From entire home design to individual room, we are here to help you create the space of your dreams.
We look forward to assisting you in each & every step of your design project, from beginning to end. Our goal is to create a home that’s uniquely yours and reflects your personal taste and style and we cannot wait to get started! Here is an overview of how the process works.
STEP 1: CONSULTATION
Call or email us! It’s that simple. During our initial consultation, we will discuss the scope of your project, learn more about your design space and goal. We will introduce you to our company & how we work, including the desired budget, the design process, our fees, and any other questions or concerns you may have.
STEP 2: SURVEY & AGREEMENT
Once we have determined that we would like to work together, we'll plan to meet at your home or office to assess your current state and discuss what changes and additions you’d like to do.
If your project is a full home renovation or new construction, we will also schedule a meeting with the architectural team or your builder. We normally discuss the plans, the colors and finishes.
In addition, it is always important to take into account your lifestyle and activities that we need to take into account to create a space that not only looks beautiful but also enhances the way you and your family live.
Once we fully understand the scope of the project, we will provide you with an estimate of the number of hours that will be required to design your home
STEP 3: DESIGN, PLAN & PRESENTATION
We work on and present a custom design plan for your home utilizing photos, floorplans, drawings, fabric, paint, flooring samples and any other materials. Remember, this is the time to make changes and tweaks until we arrive at the design plan that works for you! After these final changes, the final design plan is approved and we move to the next stage!
STEP 4: IMPLEMENTATION
CONSTRUCTION, INSTALLATIONS & ACCESSORIZING
Upon the approval of the design, we order all of the furnishings and materials, and construction activities commence. From painting and flooring installation to custom window treatments, we manage the process, so you don’t have to! We work with the installers and contractors and stay in communication daily to ensure superb workmanship and timely completion of the project. For that final touch, we will add art and accessories to complete the transformation. It is the most exciting part of the project!
