8 Step Interior Design Process
Based on our past 20 plus years of experience, we have developed an
8 Step guide that helps our clients through the design and renovation process:
Step 1: The Initial Consultation - During this working consultation we walk through the spaces to be renovated and gather information from the Client on how they want to live and work in their home. At this time we measure the areas to be renovated, any existing furnishings that will stay, and take photos of the site. We go over the Agreement with the Client, outlining the Scope of Work and compensation. A retainer is placed by the Client to confirm our working relationship.
Step 2: Preliminary Design Layouts - We draft the existing spaces and design options for new layouts that would accommodate the Client's needs and wishes. We excel at creativity and functionality and believe they must exist together. As we present the plan options, the Client is typically amazed at what is possible for their home.
Step 3: Finalizing the Design - The client determines which features work best for them and we combine these into a final plan. By adding dimensions and notes we create the Construction Plan and then draft the Demolition Plan to show what is being removed. We show the Client conceptual design and interior finish ideas for flooring, walls, plumbing and lighting fixtures, hardware, furniture, upholstery and drapery fabrics.
Step 4: Construction Drawings - Once plans are final we proceed to designing and drafting the elevations and details for all of the cabinetry, built-ins and trimwork. Finishes are chosen and tile details are drafted. Lighting and electrical layouts are designed. Light fixtures, interior hardware and plumbing fixtures are specified.
Step 5: Quotation Stage - We assist the Client in this stage by issuing the drawings and specifications that the Contractors will use in preparing their quotations. At this time we also offer quotations on the furniture, lamps, artwork and custom window treatments which we have coordinated for the new decor.
Step 6: Signing Contracts and Ordering Products - Once the Contractor is chosen, the Client will enter into a contract with the Contractor. Our drawings are what the Contractor uses to get a building permit. We also enter into contract with the Client to order in their furniture, lamps, mirrors, artwork and custom window treatments.
Step 7: Renovation by the Contractor - The renovations are underway and the dreams on paper are turned into reality! We oversee the renovations to ensure they are being built as per the design drawings. During this time we are also managing your custom orders and having your window treatments fabricated.
Step 8: Installations and Accessorizing - New furnishings and window treatments are installed and the designers put their finishing touches on the decor! Your newly renovated home is more functional, efficient and beautiful for your enjoyment!
"We retained Tower Interiors to help us to modify, design and decorate our condominium, a new and exciting high-rise development then under construction in the south end of Halifax. Over the process of several years, we worked closely with both Pam Tower and Nicole LeBlanc on our interior design plans and furnishing choices.
Ms. Tower and Ms. LeBlanc were instrumental in every area of our planning. They were able to quickly assess our taste and preferences, and make suggestions accordingly. We had many meetings where design style and options were offered and discussed, and excellent decisions made. They created revised floor plans for us, designed functional and attractive built-in cabinetry and storage areas, suggested pleasing decorative touches from the many resources at their disposal, and helped us make appropriate and attractive choices on site at various retailers. Ms. Tower and Ms. LeBlanc were always warm, approachable, engaging and professional in all our interactions.
We have been entirely pleased with the efforts of Tower Interiors on our behalf, and would have no hesitation in recommending their services."
