A detailed description of how we will handle your project and the part you will play in the process. A must read for anyone considering a remodeling or extensive redesign project.
How do we get started?
A face to face meeting is the best way for us to get to know each other, and in our first meeting, we’ll want to listen to your ideas and look at any architectural drawings, blueprints or photos you may have. We really want to know your hopes and dreams for your design project.
What will your services cost?
We are flexible in our approach to pricing our services. We generally work on a flat fee basis and full scope projects. This fee represents a reasonable assessment of the time, materials and resources it will take to professionally complete your job, and it assures you that Tranquil Designs will complete your project on time and on budget.
The scope of work is defined and detailed in a document called a Letter of Agreement (or contract), which spells out the agreement between you, the client and Tranquil Designs.
Tranquil Designs is a full service interior decorating company. Rest assured that a qualified and experienced designer will be working closely with you on your project from beginning to end.
How involved in the process will I need to be?
You may be involved as little or as much as you like in the process. We enjoy and encourage your participation.
Do you work with other trade professionals?
We work in harmony with general contractors, electricians, painters and landscape designers, among others. This collaboration, which is called the “design/build process,” is a very cost effective way to create your “dream project”, and we encourage you to meet with us and consider this process before committing designs and ideas to paper.
How long does the process take?
The initial research and development phase varies according to the complexity of the job; however, in most cases we will make a presentation to you within about six weeks. This will include our design concept, space plans, color scheme, key fabrics and furnishings, and initial budget.
We then move into the final design phase as soon as you have made your decision. This will include all working draw ins and the final proposal which will have all the costs, item by item, on everything we will need to complete your project.
How does purchasing work?
Your completed design project includes a detailed budget. You choose what pieces you want to order and then we create a proposal that details those items and prices. After you approve and sign the proposal, and return it with your deposit check, we will order your selections and provide you with delivery timelines. Of course, we will follow this process through from start to finish.
