How does the interior design and remodeling process work?

When developing your team for a remodel or new construction, it is essential to bring in an interior designer at the initial planning stages to ensure your practical and aesthetic needs are met.

Over our 28 years in the business, Robbie Interiors has developed a step by step plan to properly turn your house into a home:

Initial Meeting

First we will meet at your home or job site to review the details, goals and budget. Blueprints are helpful, as well as magazine photos depicting rooms and styles that you like.

Letter of Agreement and Design Fees

Based on the initial meeting, we will prepare a detailed Letter of Agreement that outlines the scope of services to be performed. A preliminary Design Fee is requested before proceeding with your project.

Second Meeting

After the Letter of Agreement is accepted, a follow-up consultation takes place in your home to obtain detailed measurements and evaluation of existing conditions and furnishings. If you have blueprints of your home, we will need a copy of them at this time. Questions regarding your needs, utilization of space, and budget, are also discussed in further detail.

Design Phase

Based on prior meetings, a preliminary conceptual design scheme is presented. Various interior design elements may be presented such as floor plans, photos, sketches, furnishing ideas, fabrics, as well as samples of finishes, flooring, countertops, cabinetry, wall and window treatments, lighting and hardware to help you visualize your design plan. We also explore the function and purpose of the space to make certain we maximize its potential. Over several meetings, specific design details are discussed in greater depth.

Purchase Agreement

Once the design concept has been accepted and approved, a purchase agreement is prepared. At this time, a deposit is required to place the order with manufacturers. Robbie Interiors will follow up on all orders and coordinate / oversee all installations.

Project Management

As your design advocate Robbie Interiors will work closely with the team, of architects, general contractors, landscape designers, sub contractor and others – to help ensure your project runs smoothly. A successful collaboration amongst all parties involved — including the homeowner – will produce a beautiful end result!

Our Goal? To see your project through completion and make sure that your interior scheme exceeds your expectations!
