Design Fee Breakdown

When building a new home, or remodeling an existing, many clients do not realize the importance of an interior designer in completing a well-rounded construction team. A professional designer can ensure that you will not make costly mistakes and can recommend valuable resources that can save you hours of legwork. For your new construction or re-construction project, I will work with your architect, contractor and/or kitchen designer to specify finishes, fixtures, and details to create a beautiful interior. I will suggest showrooms where I have a professional relationship and we will help make selections. To ensure an easy allowance and billing process, these showrooms will bill your contractor directly. While I will be available for questions and for site walk-throughs, the contractor will continue to be in charge of all ordering and installation. During this process, I would suggest that we set up weekly meetings on a specific day and time. The process could take at least 12 weeks, depending upon the scope of your project. It is important to remember that some custom items have a lead time of 10-12 weeks; this makes prompt decisions of paramount importance as to not delay the project. We will review the following checklist to assess your design needs:

  • Exterior: roofing, stone, brick, stucco, clad, paint, stain, windows and casements
  • Cabinetry: kitchen, bathrooms, laundry
  • Doors: exterior, interior, garage
  • Stairways
  • Fireplaces: stone, wood, fireboxes
  • Flooring: wood, stone, tile
  • Tile, stone and decorative material for kitchens, bathrooms, laundry, entry, exterior, or any other space
  • Interior trim and all casework for each space, including built-ins
  • Paint and wall finishes
  • Hardware: Knobs, pulls, hinges
  • Lighting: interior and exterior
  • Appliances
  • Plumbing: kitchens, bathrooms, laundry
  • Carpet
  • Media/AV/Security
  • Furniture space plans

Working drawings will be prepared by your architect, kitchen designer and carpenter. I will sketch concept drawings to be interpreted by the carpenter and artists who will prepare specific working drawings. I look forward to providing creative design ideas that result in detailed, unique and very special spaces.
