How long is the design process and how long does it take before install?

It can vary depending on the scope of the project, but we generally estimates 2-3 weeks to create the design plan and put the presentation together. This includes getting quotes for material, quotes for custom items and getting samples. Once everything is approved and ordered, most projects take about 10 weeks before we are ready to install.

Can you do design something in my style?

Yes! Our designers believe design is subjective and our goal is to bring to fruition the spaces you’ve been dreaming up with elements you love from design and bringing our elevated eye to the overall project. Every client is different, which is why your exact dream style may not be on our website, but we’ll be thrilled to achieve it for you! Remember, sometimes your budget guides how close we can get to the desired look.

What if you present something I don’t like?

We work very hard to create design plans that we know you’ll love, but occasionally there might be an item or two that you wish to change. We do allow time in our design fee for a couple re-selections.

I want that finished-outlook. How do the accessories work?

A few weeks before install day, we will reach out to our clients to confirm you want us to bring out accessories and we will set a budget at that time. Samples will be presented before final decition is made

 Is this process going to be expensive?

This is an investment. While we obviously must account for our time and business practices, we end up saving you money in the long run, by avoiding poor buying, overspending on the wrong pieces and just making too many misguided mistakes. The cohesive process, including our design time, should always save you money in the long run!

Why would I paint my ceiling anything but white?

We see the ceiling as a 5th wall. In most cases, this helps expand the room, even with bolder and more saturated colours! The eye continues around and doesn’t have a hard stopping point. A white ceiling can often cut off the visual point for the eye and make a room feel squatty depending on the coloration and style of the space.
