NOW, ON TO THE GOOD STUFF!

 

 

STEP 3:

YOUR STYLE

Decor preferences are so individual and unique. More often than not, a person’s “design style” can’t be identified with just one specific aesthetic, but rather, with a mixture of different styles.

Your design style is one of, if not, the most important feedback we’ll receive from you. Take your time during this step. The more detailed and descriptive you can be, the better the design will better serve you and your tastes.

This can be something from any part of your home and doesn't need to have anything to do with the room we'll be designing. This helps us get a better idea of your style, as well as the types of items you value for your home. Please feel free to elaborate.
Examples: - "Our family collects antique piggy banks. We'd like to try and display these in the room." - "I hate the existing color of the walls. We definitely need a new paint color." - "Our main staircase is located off our living room (the room we will be designing). This is the only way to the second floor, so naturally it gets used a lot. I'm sending a bunch of photos and will note the location and dimensions on the floor plan."


GOOD JOB! YOU’RE HALFWAY THERE!


STEP 5:

MEASUREMENTS

1. DRAW THE FLOOR PLAN

A floor plan is a scaled diagram of a room drawn as if seen from above.

 
 
 
 

Sketch a corner-to-corner floor plan of your room, making sure the lines are dark enough to read. For each wall, label its orientation as North, South, East or West. Use the above drawing as your guide.

Measure & Record the length and width dimensions of the room. The measurements should be in inches. When the dimension isn’t exact, round to the nearest 1/4”

Show doors, windows, structural columns, built-ins, etc. - anything fixed in the room that could influence our furniture plan. Label them clearly on your drawing, as shown above.

2. DRAW THE ELEVATIONS

An elevation is a 2 dimensional representation of a wall and it’s design features. 

 
 
 
 

Create separate sketches for each individual wall. Use the same approach from measuring the floor plan to record their respective dimensions in inches. Label each wall as North, South, East and West.

Pencil in key features, such as windows, doors, light fixtures, built-in structures like the crown moulding, base boards and window/door trim, air vents, electrical sockets, light switches, sconces and paneling.

Measure each wall feature and indicate their position and dimension in respect to the wall. 

Repeat the above steps for each wall of the room.

 
 

3. SCAN & UPLOAD YOUR DRAWINGS

Note: Before uploading, please rename your images to include your last name, the name of the section and the photo number - to ensure your files are bundled correctly. ~ Example: Smith-measurements-photo3.jpg
Please use this space to communicate anything that may need clarification or explanation For each note, please make reference to the photo in question.

TIPS

  • Measure twice record once. It’s important to get accurate measurements of the room.

  • Measure windows from the outside of trim to outside of trim.

  • Make sure to indicate if there’s a change in ceiling or floor height.

  • Don’t forget to include floor electrical outlets, stairways, radiators, etc.

 
 

YOU’RE DOING GREAT! 5 DOWN! 3 TO GO!


STEP 6:

PHOTOGRAPH YOUR SPACE

STEP BY STEP GUIDE

1. TIDY UP & remove any & all extra clutter from the space.

2. PHOTOGRAPH during the day, while the light is nice and bright. The photos should give a clear visual of your space.

3. STAND as far back in each corner of the room as you can. You may have to stand in a closet or doorway, to get a wider shot of the room. 

4. PROVIDE both horizontal and vertical photographs.

5. FRAME your photos so that the ceiling, walls and floor are all visible. If possible, try to get at least 2 walls in the photo. If there are stairs in your room, make sure to include them.

7. LABEL each photo with your last name, the room and photo number.

Example: Hughes_livingroom1.jpg

  • Make sure to capture all windows, doors & architectural details.

STEP 7:

EXISTING ITEMS

If you have any items, be it furniture, lighting, rugs, etc., that you’d like us to try and incorporate in your new room design, we’ll need detailed information about each piece. 


1. PHOTOGRAPH EACH OF YOUR ITEMS

Photograph your pieces in good light, so that the details, colors and texture are shown clearly.

Take a number of photos of each piece from a variety of different angles.

3. UPLOAD YOUR IMAGES

If you don't have any existing items, please answer the above question and hit "submit".
Note: Before uploading, please rename your images to include your last name, the name of the section (existing items) and the photo number - to ensure your files are bundled correctly. ~ Example: Smith-ExistingItems-photo3.jpg
Please use this space to communicate anything that may need clarification or explanation For each note, please make reference to the photo in question.

NOTE:

More often than not, we have no problem incorporating your existing items into the design. However, there may be times when we find that one or more of your items just aren’t right for your space or the overall design. Perhaps the scale is too large or the style isn’t in tune with the aesthetic you’ve communicated to us. Our goal is to provide you with the best possible design.
