We love our clients and feel that being open and honest right from the start can help us create a strong, collaborative relationship and eliminate confusion. So, as you begin your design journey (yes, it really is a journey), we’ve put together some answers to commonly asked questions you may find helpful.
How long does the design process take?
It depends on the size of your project and your project requirements. Generally, six months is a good rule of thumb. Smaller projects can take as little as three months. Larger projects can take upwards of one year. For a more detailed explanation of our process, click here.
We will discuss the timeframe upfront with you before the project begins. We have options for rush service and will be happy to accommodate your needs. Rush services usually will result in higher design fees and higher product and administrative fees.
Do you offer renders only?
We believe to create a successful interior design you need more than just renders. We want to tell your brand’s full story and develop a tailor-suit concept carefully thought to provide your brand the perfect space to grow and we need more than just renders to do that.
Do you offer a discovery call?
Do you offer free on-site consultation?
Will you work with my contractor and sub-contractors?
My Contractor/Architect offers design services; why should I hire an independent Interior Designer?
Each party has interests at stake in the project, and you need someone who knows construction there to advocate on your behalf. We know what needs to be done to keep a project on time and on budget, and we enjoy helping our clients drive their projects forward to success.
How is an interior designer assigned to my project?
One of our best attributes is that you get the entire design team to work on your project. For all projects, you will have one lead designer who is your main point of contact; however, all team members are involved in the final design of your project, leading to a more creative solution with faster turn-around times.
How soon I should reach out for my new project?
Do you offer project management?
What are you design fees and is there a minimum fee?
What if I need additional help with some other odds and ends or just need to add additional scope of work?
Our designers are happy to perform additional design services outside of the project scope at an hourly rate or flat rate if you need them. Let us know what you have in mind and we can discuss your options!
Do you offer a payment plan?
Yes! A non-refundable 50% deposit is due to secure your spot on our calendar. The remaining three payments are broken up over the length of the project so that you can confidently invest in your business with ease. If you need a different payment plan, just ask!
What currency are your prices in?
They’re in US dollars or AED United Arab Emirates dirham.
Do you offer discounts or free tests?
We never run discounts and have no plans to offer free tests.
This sounds great! When can we start?
