Details on ‘Interior Design in the Remodel’

[Gregg] Interior design is a critical part of the home remodeling process. It should be a fun and exciting time, not a burden because you’re making last minute decisions .The collaboration between the homeowner and interior designer should work to meet style, space, function and budget goals. The importance of this phase should not be underestimated. Working with an interior designer, you get to visualize what you’re home’s going to look like before work starts, as well as be assured your budget is met. Home remodeling without interior design is like taking a trip without an itinerary. You can expect delays, cost overruns and a lot of stress. A well developed design package includes all the materials, fixtures and finishes for your remodel, plus full color renderings with cabinet elevations, hard surfaces, tile layouts and textures. As part of our design build service, we source, check lead times, go over pricing and with client’s approval, order products. So when the building permit is issued, we can start work and the project runs smoothly.
