We believe that if designers and clients are clear about what to expect and on the same page about what the process entails, we are all likely to enjoy it a lot more. So here is how our process works:
1. The meeting
We offer a courtesy 1 hour first meeting. This is where we evaluate our compatibility, share our experiences and learn about the scope of work.
This is the information gathering phase. It is when we get into details about the project, timelines, budget and expectation. This is when we get to know you and help define goals for the project. (5 - 15% of the design process)
3. Conceptual Design
Our team formulate preliminary broad-based concepts and floor plans. Design decision about character, function, and aesthetics are presented. Including direction of color palette and space planning. (15 - 20% of the design process)
4. Design Development
This is also a creative phase. During this phase we further develop and finalize the design scheme. All furniture, fabric, finishes, fixtures, tile ans stone, hardware, and lighting are selected. We also offer 3D renders for easier visualization of the space. (25 - 30% of the design process)
5. Specifications and Drawings
Based on previous decision our team prepare the Design Drawings, specifications package and schedules that provide clear instructions to the architect and builder. (30-35% of design process)
6. Construction Administration and Furniture Installation
This is usually the most rewarding phase. All the design decisions become real as the walls are built, mechanical, electrical and lighting systems are installed; and finishes are applied. After that furniture, rugs, window treatments, art and accessories are installed.
We oversee this phase with close eyes, to ensure items are received in good condition, installed correctly, and that documents have been followed properly. (5-15% of design process)
"When my husband and I met Kitchy from KC Interior Design we thought we had won the lottery. She listened to everything and took copious notes at our first meeting. When we met again, the concepts she presented opened a whole new world of design for us. We knew we wanted to make some major changes and have a clean and modern palette. What she created with her team of professionals was life changing and we could not have been happier with our modern streamlined home. I have attached photos that will do the talking. I will say when this woman moves a wall and redesigns the layout, step aside and watch this Creative Genius! Working with Kitchy from KC Interior Design was an amazing and wonderful journey."
"There are many excellent professional interior designers but Kitchy is an OUTSTANDING one! Her creativity, decorating style and taste, professionalism, flexibility, and accommodating style are exceptional! She made my husband and my kitchen and living room remodel a huge success! We love the results of having a beautifully remodeled home of which we are very proud!
When Kitchy first met with me and I gave her my wish-list, little did I know that she would return a week later with options to resolve the problematic "too-small-kitchen" to create my dream kitchen! She produced creative plans to overcome the obstacles other decorators could not seem to overcome to my liking. With Kitchy's depth of talent, "mixed well" with her caring to satisfy the client's wishes, budget restrictions and needs, Kitchy will keep us as dedicated clients for all future projects!"
"KC Interior Design did an incredible job at my house! I had her do an interior redesign in order to list my house and she was super reliable, professional and allowed me to sell my house in short order. She did such a great job I almost decided to keep my house. : ) "
"We began planning our kitchen remodeling without a professional designer. A friend advised against it and we now advised others against major kitchen remodeling without a professional designer. We hired Kitchy (KC Interior Design) who took our rinky dink space and turned it into a kitchen that neighbors and friends compliment over and over. Walls, doors, windows, plumbing and electrical were removed and replaced. In addition to providing a competent contractor, she kept our project close to our initial budget. If you’re planning an interior home remodel, KC Interior Design should be on on top of your list of designers."
