Our stages of the design process allow clients to customize their design services with us to follow the budget and project timeline. No matter the project, every client works through these stages of the design to complete their projects from start to finish. Since we work through an a la carte approach, not every client will go through all six stages, depending on how much design involvement is needed. However, each stage is designed to cater to the client so the project is completed the best way possible. Here is a breakdown of our stages of the design:
The Acuity Questionnaire Form
Initial questionnaire to build client portfolio. Questions are geared to help designers understand your needs and desires for the spaces involved. We will go over the evaluation of your space, discuss design style and goals, and general project information such as location, room type, etc. Every client completes stage I when the form is completed and the initial consultation is complete.
30 Min Virtual Consultation with Designer
Through a free consultation, we understand the spaces involved and set intentional goals. We formulate some recommendations and discuss design strategies that can be implemented immediately. We will discuss the space(s), design and decor styles, quick on-the-go tips, and the overall Designs By Des design process.
1:1 Proposal Discussion
Through a follow-up meeting, we discuss the new design for the spaces involved and how much involvement is needed from the designer. You get to see the vision through concepts that bring solutions to current spaces. We will discuss the mood board, investment, and timeline, and review the next stage for design implementation.
Mood Boards: Building the Visual Design: Establish the decor strategy for the project. It is meant to create the vibe and overall energy the project will bring through a visual collage.
2D Concept Boards : Graphically Staging in 2D: Concept Boards are designed for a client to see a design strategy in one view. It is not to scale and is only for conceptual purposes.
E-Design : Space Configuration: 3D model built to scale that portrays the furniture spacing, layout, and finish selections for final specification.
In this phase, we write out the specification to match the design and client budget. Once approved, we will work with our vendors to get the material inspected, tracked, and delivered to your home for installation.
We also offer shopping consultations for local clients based per hour. Through the shopping phase, we work with local and national retailers, resellers, thrifting finds, auction finds, and even manufacturers to get the lowest price possible to maximize the client’s budget.
The whole goal is to make the shopping portion of the design streamlined.
In-Person Assembly and Staging
Seeing the design come to life is the most rewarding part! A full reveal of the design is installed in the home. An option that is offered to clients who are willing to go the whole way, we offer a complimentary photoshoot package of your design to celebrate you taking on this journey of self-care and development. It all starts at home.
Within all of our design stages, we believe in solving all of our design challenges through visuals that tells the project’s story. Our menu allows for different levels of deliverables depending on the scope and client. All of our designs are done in house to eliminate any project delays and missed communication
Our design deliverables are the most realistic you will get to seeing your design in real time. Each option is designed to match your design and decor style while taking the second guessing away. We will explore interior design concepts that provide the best solutions to your needs while sticking to your budget. It is our specialty!
The E-Design and 3D Modeling option is our fan favorite. Through BIM modeling, we are able to build your space to scale to allow us to create renderings of various views at various time of day. We will explore textures, color schemes, spatial layouts, styles, lighting, and more.
Architectural drawings such as shaded floor plans, 3D perspectives and elevations are a great way to see project details at a construction level. Our renovation and addition services allow us to create detailed drawings for our trade professionals to fully understand our designs.
Mood boards are our quickest way to convey decor and design concepts. All of our mood boards are curated and sourced to allow us to provide inspiration to our subscribers and followers. You can check out our boards on our Like2KnowIt storefront and our shopping tab (coming soon).
