You've been looking at Pintrest again haven't you? And watching HGTV right? I knew it.
Okay, these are good places to start, they will give you all kinds of ideas that may or may not be right for your home. But at the end of the day, that is all they are, ideas.
When it comes down to actually doing it, how do you go from idea to done effectively? How do you tell the contractor what you want so that it turns out how you want? How do you know you will have the space to do it and it will all work out right? How do you set a reasonable budget and stick to it? How do you add all those extra details that make it so pretty without going overboard and braking the bank?
Don't worry, I am here to help you!!
You know you want/need to change things about your home but you really don't know how it could all come together? You just can’t seem to visualize it.
Maybe you have wanted to a bigger kitchen for a long time now but there are issues with the floor plan that need to be worked out and you just don't know how to configure the space properly to make the house flow. Or perhaps you feel overwhelmed by all of the many decisions and moving parts that have to be worked out to pull it off well. I know this is a lot to think about and you want to be able to just sit back and relax, I can help you do that.
E-design is an easy way to get your space professionally designed. I will work with you to make sure your plan is everything you want and need. You will receive a floor plan, 3d perspectives, elevation drawings, style boards, shopping lists, designers instructions, and more. It is everything you need to put your room together beautifully. I promise!
I will show you how you might even be able to work on your project in stages if you need to so that you can plan your budget and your time appropriately.
This is what I did in my own kitchen. The key is to have the entire project planned out ahead of time. You know, the ‘big picture’. It is then that it can be broken down into sizable chunks. Doing it this way has a lot of benefits, including the fact that it wont look choppy, but well thought out and cohesive.
Choose E-Design if you:
Want a room plan that exceeds expectations
Lack the time to create a design plan yourself
Want someone to source your products for you
Need help with the functionality of your space
Need help sorting out all the ideas from Pinterest overload
Have a tricky space you don't know how to deal with
Need floor plan documents and elevations to show your contractor
Want to see what your room will look like before you start
These are only some of the reasons e-design has become so popular.
We will schedule a discovery call where we talk generally about your project, what it entails, and if we are a good fit for each other.
I may be able to tell you at this time if your project will require additional fees beyond the pre-packaged flat fee. Sometimes I won’t know until later at which time I communicate that with you as soon as it comes to light. Many projects do not require extra fees since I have tried to include everything an average design project would entail so there would be no extra charges. Extra charges are billed by the hour.
I can also let you know if there will be a waiting period before I can start your project. I never try to take on more than I can handle at once. I put a lot of my heart and soul into each design, giving it all of the time and attention it needs. Each client is a priority and I never skimp on customer service.
Once you purchase your package you will be added to my schedule.
You will receive a confirmation email with login information in it. You will be given a temporary password that you will change to something you choose.
This is where we will conduct all of our business together.
From here, you will be able to get started right away.

Although this part of the design process is done mainly by me, I do like to work in a collaborative fashion. This allows me to freely create within your parameters, then present you with a preliminary design. You then have the option to approve all or parts of the plan, ask questions, and tell me what changes you would like me to make. Revisions and changes are normal, don’t feel bad if you have changes for me. Communication is key. Working this way helps reduce stress of the unknown and eliminates unexpected results.
This is the best part!! Watching it all come together.
Use your space plan and shopping list to purchase your items. Use your Designer’s Instructions to know how to put it all together. Use your elevations and perspectives to help you get it right.
Be sure to send me lots of pictures. Drop me a note and let me know how satisfied you are with your design.
