Day with a Designer
An easy, efficient approach to selecting your finishes.
Building and Remodeling projects involve a serious investment of money and time and it is natural to worry about making the wrong choices. After all, you’ll be living with these choices for the next 20+ years!
Maybe you’ve already selected your builder or Main Line remodeling contractor. They gave you some budget allowances and pointed you towards some showrooms, but you are feeling overwhelmed by all your choices and have no clear direction.
You’ve looked into some Interior Designers but you don’t want to sign on for full project management. You just need some help to get you headed in the right direction.
Get the guidance you need to feel confident in the finish and material selections for your remodel or new construction home.
DAY WITH A DESIGNER
We make choosing finishes simple and easy.
You won’t believe how much we can accomplish together in one day.
objective, professional expertise
When you have an Interior Designer’s help, you have someone who sees your project holistically, takes the time to know your project goals and requirements, and helps you make selections that work as a cohesive whole. You’ll get my undivided attention for a full day of collaborative decision-making. My knowledge of design principles and almost 15 years of building and remodeling expertise will inform every decision. You’ll love being able to give real-time feedback as we’re working, and see the design adjust to fit your personal taste.
It’s time to stop procrastinating and feeling overwhelmed and get your contractor those final selections he keeps asking for. How exciting will it be to start the day with nothing and end the day with tangible results? We can’t make every selection you need in one day, but you’ll have the momentum and vision to confidently move forward.
efficient decision making
Let me set an organized plan for our day of decision making so you can be efficient and not waste time in the wrong showrooms. If you come prepared to make decisions quickly, we can avoid overthinking and revisiting. Each decision informs the next, so we will make quick, concrete decisions throughout your Design Day.
some decisions on your list we can help with:
- Paint Colors
- Cabinet Hardware
- Tile and Layout
Make building material and finish selections for:
✓ Kitchen Remodels
✓ Bath Remodels
✓ New Construction
How It Works:
Step 1: Prework
We will have a meeting in your home to discuss your goals, budget, inspiration photos, and personal style. I will email you an agenda for our Design Day, and set our schedule and make appointments to optimize our time together.
Step 2: Design Day
Depending on the decisions to be made and your desired level of involvement, your Design Day will be a mixture of in person selections and emailed selections with phone/zoom conversations. Your day will consist of 3 hours in the morning, a 90 minute lunch break to recharge, and then another 3 hours in the afternoon.
Your day may include:
- Showroom Visits
- Selection time in new construction builder design center
- Emailed AutoCAD drawings of floor plans, lighting plans, tile elevations
- Emailed mood board collage to show a group of selections together visually
Step 3: Documentation
I will email you details of our selections, photos, sketches, notes, and suggestions for next steps. Specifications and showroom pricing will be sent to your contractor.
Whether you are building a new home or doing a kitchen or bath remodel, Day with a Designer is an easy and efficient approach to selecting your finishes.
