Here's a complete guide on how to prepare for your design meeting


Congratulations on scheduling your design meeting! A big step towards transforming your space into a beautiful and functional environment that meets your needs and reflects your style. We prepared this document for you to get the most out of it. 

Here is a brief breakdown of our process and where the design phase fits into it.

Our Process:

Request Your Estimate

Describe how we can help and upload pictures of your space. The more we can see, the better. Our website will redirect you to schedule a call after submitting the form.

Free Phone Consultation

During our call, we will discuss everything you have in mind for your project. We will give you a ballpark estimate and schedule a design meeting if you agree to our price range.

Design Meeting

The design meeting has two parts. First, we will schedule a date to take precise measurements and review any regulations and compliance involved. Next, our designer will plan a virtual meeting and discuss your project in depth.

Approve Design

Finally, our designer will take our measurements and your ideas to craft a design that fits your vision. We will present you with floor plans, 3-D rendering, and a firm price proposal. Once you approve, a deposit will secure your place on our schedule. 

Here are some essential tips to help you get ready:

Step 1: Collect Inspirations and Ideas

Gather inspiration from various sources to help you visualize your ideal design. Create a mood board (collection of images) that represents your desired aesthetic and features. You can find inspiration from websites, interior design magazines, social media platforms (such as Pinterest or Instagram), or even by visiting showrooms. Bringing these visual references to your consultation will assist your designer in understanding your taste and style. I also suggest you set up a Pinterest account if you don’t have one already. It is full of kitchens from designers, magazines, and more. 

Step 2: Define Your Goals and Priorities

Before your design consultation, take some time to think about what you want to achieve with your remodeling project. Consider your goals, priorities, and any specific requirements you have in mind. Ask yourself questions such as:

  • What is the purpose of the space?
  • What elements are most important to you (e.g., functionality, aesthetics, sustainability)?
  • What are your preferred design styles or themes?
  • Do you have any specific color schemes or materials in mind?

Step 3: Communicate Any Preferences

If you have any specific constraints, such as building regulations, accessibility requirements, or personal preferences, communicate them clearly during the consultation. Information upfront will save time and ensure the proposed design meets your needs and adheres to relevant regulations.

Step 4: Be Open to Professional Advice

Remember that the design consultation is an opportunity to collaborate with a professional with expertise and experience in creating functional and visually appealing spaces. Be open to their suggestions and recommendations. Designers can offer creative solutions you may not have considered, and their insights can help you make informed decisions.
