Initial Consult: All initial consult meetings happen on-site at In Home with one of our expert designers. This is when you will discuss your project needs, wants, and/or desires. Your project budget will also be discussed at this time. The initial consult is a good time for you to assess if the In Home team are a good match for your project’s needs.
On-site Visit: The onsite visit is done at your home, so we can discuss your project in more detail. We will take photographs of the project area(s) and take any measurements needed to produce preliminary renderings. This also gives In Home the opportunity to discover any issues and discuss area(s) of concern with you.
Plan and Design Time: After an on-site consultation is done, the In Home team begins working on preliminary renderings of your project area(s). This could include 3-D and/or hand- drawn renderings of the space(s). We also begin doing research and selecting colors, fabrics, layouts, furnishings, cabinetry etc. for your project.
Design Meeting: Now, the fun part! You will meet with the In Home team on-site, so we can present our preliminary plans and ideas. This gives you time to review the selections and plan layouts and to discuss any changes you would like to be made.
Project Finalization/ Implementation: After the design meeting and you have finalized the layouts and selections, the In Home Team will put together a project packet for you. We will then begin to implement the design plans and selections by coordinating subcontractors, if needed, and ordering products and scheduling installation.
