Since I am an organization expert, I have created a systematic process of design over my years in the industry that serves me well. All projects begin with a conversation. I ask a lot of questions so I can learn about you. The best designs represent the homeowner. It’s easy to “make pretty.” But for your home design to work best I have to learn about you. There is no such thing as over-sharing. Each little thing helps me create the best overall design for you. I want your input and feedback throughout our design process together.
Conducted over the phone or on a video call, the complimentary exploratory call is where we start to get to know you. We introduce ourselves and learn about your project. We’ll also discuss your budget. Emails can’t convey meaning as well as a personal chat. It’s the first step in working together. Taking the time for an exploratory call enables Bedeckers to come prepared for the initial design consultation or organization appointment.
This is our first appointment and unless it’s a new build or you are some distance away, we meet in your space. Our design process is collaborative. To create interiors that are perfect for you, we need your feedback. We request all decision-makers be present for our consultations. During this initial consultation we get to business. We’ll ask a lot of questions and do more listening than talking. We’ll walk through your entire space, even rooms that won’t be changed, to get a feel for the layout and how rooms work together. We’ll talk about how each room functions, or doesn’t. We’ll focus on your goals for the finished design. Working photos and measurements are taken. We’ll look at paint colors and fabrics and furniture styles. If you have blueprints or you’ve created a clip file or Pinterest boards with ideas, we will go over these together. For simple projects, it’s possible things can be purchased during our initial consultation.
After the appointment, Bedeckers types up notes and sends you a room-by-room list of the things we talked about complete with color selections and resources as applicable. If your project is more intensive, we may hold samples until the design appointment.
For larger scale projects, design time is contracted as a flat fee by room or by the scope of the project. This fee does not include the purchase of any furnishings, materials, or accessories. It covers our design creation and time. Bedeckers will research and design off-site. Then we will meet in your space to go over design schemes created for you, narrow choices and then make the final selections.
Once you’ve finalized design selections, the project begins. Contracts are signed and the down-payment is placed. Bedeckers Interiors accepts checks, cash, credit cards, and PayPal.
We begin all the work for you behind the scenes implementing the design, procuring components, and providing off-premises receipt of furnishings and accessories. When things are complete, we schedule your installations. Bedeckers returns with our team to direct everything and add the finishing touches. Final payment is due on installation day.
Since we make pretty things, we love to have pictures to share. Before and After photos tell the story and help us acquire new clients. With your permission, we will bring a photographer to take photos of your finished spaces. We take care to protect your privacy and never share personal details.
