What is the difference between e-Design and traditional Interior Design

Traditional  interior design involves a designer coming to  your physical place for a consultation including evaluating your space, measuring it, and providing you a presentation of their design proposal for your space, and project managing the project from end-end. Therefore you get more face to face contact with the designer.

With online interior design (e-Design) Is a type of interior design done remotely. In this case the client is the project manager and is guided by a professional interior designer.

What is e-Design and is it right for me?

E-Design, or Virtual Design, is an easy and inexpensive option in receiving quality interior design services from a professional interior designer. Why is it so affordable? With E-design services through Design by Nickelloh, there is no home consultation, there’s no cost in traveling, because we work with you virtually! There’s no time we need to charge for measuring because you provide us with all the necessary information. We do not request retainers, because you will be managing the purchasing of your recommended products on your own schedule. If you feel confident in the ability to accurately measure and photograph your space, are happy to order products with ease from your provided shoppable board, and deal directly with retail companies, than E-Design Services are a great option for you! With all our package curtailed for you, you will receive detailed instructions from us, on how to execute your designs. Additionally, A designer will be  available to you 30 days post project completion for any follow-up questions or help!

How can we re-design your property without seeing it or meeting you personally?

The advances of technology over the last decade have made things very possible for interior designers to work with clients over the internet.  Times are changing and so is the way interior design is performed.  To allow Design by Nickelloh to accurately understand your budget, space, needs and the look you want to achieve, we will ask that you to complete a client questionnaire provide us a rough sketch of the room, room measurements and photos of the room.  We welcome inspiration photos you’ve found online as well.  The more info you send the better we get to know you and your style preferences

How long will it take to get my room E-design?

You will receive your E-Design Presentation Package via email approximately within (1-3) weeks from our receipt of all needed items (questionnaire, payment, room sizes, photos,). All digital boards will be emailed in a PDF downloadable and printable file

Where do you shop? can I come with you?

We utilize a wide and varied group of antiques dealers, to-the-trade-only showrooms, local workrooms, and retail stores in surrounding areas. It is entirely up to you whether you would like to see items in person. Many of our clients never see the furniture until it shows up in their home. Just let your designer know your preference.

What is the difference between custom furniture and in-stock or retail furniture?

Custom furniture is built-to-order, which means it can often be sized to our specific needs, and we can choose our own finishes and fabrics.

When we build a color scheme for your home, we usually start with the fabric, with emphasis on the upholstery pieces. Your designer will bring you lots of great fabric swatches to choose from, as well as photos of the upholstery pieces we are suggesting. Once furniture and fabrics are selected and ordered, the fabric is shipped directly to the furniture manufacturer and applied to the selected item. With retail or in-stock furniture, the fabric has already been chosen by the store and applied to the frame, and size and finish options are limited. As a result, retail doesn’t offer the same unique look or personal feel we might be trying to achieve.

What happens when the project is completed? When do I get to see it?

This is our favorite part of any project. We aim to provide a special “reveal” of a newly designed home to our clients.

Ideally, you will spend the day with your feet up at an off-site location while we manage the delivery and installation of all of your items into your home. We will style your shelves, hang art, bring flowers and accessories, and have your home photo-ready when you walk in your front door.

Before we conclude our time together, we do a final walk-through and prepare a list of any remaining items needing attention, and we will discuss the care and maintenance of your new finishes and furnishings. While we expect you will be thrilled with your new space, if anything is not what you had expected, we will fix it to the best of our ability.

During the remodeling process what is expected of me? What will I have to do?

Sit back, relax and let us handle this phase of your project! We will manage all of the orders for your furniture, rugs, lighting, and window treatments, and make sure everything arrives on schedule, in the correct finish and size, and undamaged. We keep track of everything going into your new space with a project binder organized by room, which includes: floor plans and drawings; images and renderings; paint, lighting, finish and plumbing schedules (i.e. spreadsheets listing the specifications of permanent elements in your home); copies of all proposals and fabric samples; and anything else pertinent to your project. We can prepare a binder for your own reference if you desire.

If your interior design project has a remodeling or new build component, we stay in constant contact with the contractors and frequently visit the job site to ensure work is progressing on schedule and that our designs are being built as intended. We share all of our paint, lighting, finish and plumbing schedules with the contractors, so they know exactly what is going where. To make sure that our design intent is clearly communicated, we provide the contractors with detailed construction drawings such as cabinetry layouts, lighting plans, bathroom layouts, and fireplace design. If desired, we can assist you in reviewing contractor bids to ensure accuracy and fair pricing. Throughout this phase of the project, we will check-in with you often to address any questions or concerns.

I have never worked with A Interior Design firm before, what is the process?

Each project is unique. The first step is to setup the initial consultation, so we can discuss exactly what you are looking for and see if we can help. We will gather all necessary information to be able to define your style.

Over a series of meetings, we will take what we’ve learned about you and your style and turn it into a thoughtful design for your home. We will present you with furniture plans and color palettes to ponder, fabrics and materials to touch and see in your space, and images of furniture and lighting we’ve thoughtfully selected specifically for your home. If desired, we will create photo-realistic renderings with our selections so that you can truly visualize your space before making any final decisions. We generally present one or two rooms at each meeting, if the construction schedule allows, and we will always discuss pricing of items along the way. We take your budget seriously and work hard to balance special, splurge-worthy pieces with every day, cost-conscious items.

Depending on the scope of your project and the timeliness of your decision-making, this phase can take a couple of weeks (for one or two rooms) to a few months or more (for a full-scale design or remodel). Your feedback is vital during this phase so that we can be sure we are expertly translating your style into the perfectly designed home or space of your dreams.

How long does the design process takes? is there A way to speed up the process?

Most interior design projects will take anywhere from 3–6 months depending on the size.

If you are on a tight timeline, we will do everything in our power to complete your home as quickly as possible, but please let us know at the beginning of the process. Because custom furniture is often built-to-order, items can take anywhere from 6 to 12 weeks to arrive (sometimes more, sometimes less). Our vendors appreciate knowing in advance that this will be a rush job and can sometimes accommodate our schedule, but please note that rush charges will apply. By scheduling frequent meetings with your designer and making decisions quickly, you can also speed the process along.Most interior design projects will take anywhere from 3–6 months depending on the size.

How do I keep record of my budget?

We will create and maintain an Excel spreadsheet of your budget upon request. The budget will include furnishings separated by room, and monthly design time fees.

Does Design by Nickelloh have a minimum project size?

We do not have a minimum project size.

What do I need to bring to the initial Consultation/Meeting?

Reviewing any inspiration images that you have collected, such as from magazines or Pinterest, will help us further uncover your style and direction. It might also be a good idea to have some pictures of styles you do not like, so our designers know what to stay away from during your interior design project

What are your business hours?

Our office is open Mondays-Fridays 9-7pm.

How do I begin a project with Design by Nickelloh?

Simply, contact us by sending an email or by calling us to set up A initial consultation. During the consultation meeting we will discuss your budget, your design needs. We will ask questions regarding yourself, your family, your preferences, household habits and hobbies, functional needs, and desired outcome for your home. All of this will lead us down the right path in defining your unique style. Our goal for every project is to realize the vision of the homeowner.

Do You Offer Free Consultations?

We do no offer free consultations. However; with the case of e-Design, the package comes with three 30 minutes consultation anytime throughout the duration of the project, outside of the initial consultation.
