THE DESIGN PROCESS


DESIGN CONSULTATION

The design consultation enables us to get to know you and your project needs, budget and timeline. Our initial meeting will usually be at the client site or via skype for our online customers. It is geared towards helping us better understand your space and how we can incorporate your needs and wants in the design. It may consist of gathering measurements and acquiring photos of your space.

DESIGN CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT

After the initial consultation/meeting, if you wish to proceed with our services, we will work on your scope of work as discussed.  We will then start work on developing the design for the project. This may include, but is not limited to preliminary drawings, coming up with a color scheme for your space or working on a floor plan layout.

CLIENT DESIGN REVIEW

Once the design concept is completed it will be either emailed to you for your review or we shall set up an appointment to go through it with you for approval. If you prefer to take us on to complete and execute your design we will be delighted to do so, or you may choose at this point to implement the design on your own.

QUOTE/ESTIMATE FOR PROJECT

If you choose for us to carry out your design, we will work out a detailed quote for you including material and labor cost for the project. We will then provide you with an estimated timeline for your project. We will go through the quote and timeline with you and once they are approved and signed off, we can then start off with your project.

SHOPPING AND INSTALLATION

Based on the design drawn up for you, if you wish for us to pick out products that we believe would suit and look great in your space, you can hire us for this service. You would provide us with a shopping budget and we would source products within your budget. Once these items are approved, we can go ahead and order the products for you and arrange shipment and also be present for the install.

TESTIMONIALS

OUR HAPPY CUSTOMERS


“Michelle’s design expertise was invaluable as my husband and I prepared to list our home. Throughout the staging process, Michelle listened attentively to our needs and came up with a plan that would showcase our home in the best possible light. I especially appreciated her ability to repurpose our existing furniture pieces and artwork. Any additional items were acquired with our budget in mind. The final product exceeded our expectations. We were proud to show our home to potential buyers. In the end, we had had multiple offers over a day period and our home sold very quickly. Having Michelle on board without question helped us to achieve our desired outcome.”

“I visited Design with Confidence to discuss a kitchen update. Michelle had many good ideas and also had the contacts to schedule and carry out the work which was a plus for me. She recommended samples for all the materials and took care of purchasing them and having them available when required which worked out very well. She knows what goes together and seeks your input for what you like. The finished kitchen looks great and I have had many compliments on it. I found the process of getting a final estimate to match my budget a bit drawn out and thus the timeline we had set was delayed and the communication about the delays not clearly explained at the outset. Michelle was ever patient and upbeat throughout the process!”

“Thanks to Michelle, I have the kitchen of my dreams. She presented different possibilities but didn’t push her ideas. Working with her was a great experience.”

“Had an old family chair that was up for repair. Someone in New West sent me to D with C and had my chair fixed and in good working order again, and looking great. Enjoyed the first experience, took a second chair back to Michelle’s business and they took care of me again, just like the first time.”

“We hired Design with Confidence to help us with our complete condo renovation in February 2015. After talking with us, Michelle helped us to develop an overall design theme based on our tastes. Through her connections in the industry she provided us with an excellent contractor, trades people and material suppliers. We benefitted from her excellent design and decorating advice throughout the project. Her excellent product knowledge and familiarity with good local suppliers saved us weeks of research and shopping time. She was forthright in letting us know which of our ideas wouldn’t work with our overall theme and presenting us with alternatives. We are very satisfied with the end result and will be happy in our renovated condo for years to come. We continue to get nothing but positive comments from friends and family members when they see it for the first time. We would happily recommend Design with Confidence to anyone who is considering a major renovation to their home. Cathy and Jerry“
