Frequently Asked Questions
Not at all! We work with whichever pieces you are thinking of keeping in your new renovation. Part of our design process is documenting which pieces would remain and playing around with how we can use it in your design scheme. These pieces act as great jumping-off points and inspiration pieces to influence the rest of the room. We will always give our advice if we feel an existing piece of yours might not work and we take extra steps to either sell or donate it for you so you still reap the benefits.
In most cases, we shy away from this. From our experience with previous clients, what tends to happen is they begin to pick apart the design and try to get certain things on their own or from people they know that look similar. This causes delays for us and even changes how the final design looks which in some cases has a negative impact on the final outcome of your design. The success of your design is the sum of its parts by using our team that we trust and can manage.
For example, if someone says their brother is a painter and will do all the painting, then we have to wait until all the walls are painted before we can install anything on it. If the client is most likely getting a great deal from their brother, then the brother would do it on their own time when they are good and ready.
This happens a lot where some people bite off more than they can chew, jumped right into the reno without a proper game plan, or just need some reassurance and guidance as they move through their renovation. If you have already started your renovation with your own team of subcontractors, we recommend our 2-hour design consultation. We will come into your home and you can pick our brains about anything you would like to discuss. This is perfect for homeowners who want to make sure they are moving in the right direction with their choices and are comfortable taking the reigns on their own project.
