In-House Design- Saving you time, money and frustration
As a client-oriented company, we always want to bring more ideas forward on how we can improve our service to you. Designing a new space can be overwhelming. There are many decisions to make, like what countertop you should go with, what paint colours are best and what type of cabinets match the tiles you want.
The options and decisions to be made in any renovation or new build can be endless. And as a construction project management company, we see the stress that clients often take on when they attempt to put their ideas into reality. A good example is a couple we recently worked with that had chosen a beautiful pendant light for their kitchen but then couldn’t figure out if the fixture went with the other options they had chosen for their new kitchen. They spent hours mulling over the problem. Suddenly, when we offered our complete design service to holistically look at the entire design process of the room, they were thrilled to see how the process worked and how much stress it took off their minds. Clients often know what they want, they just have trouble articulating it to the trades professionals and that can become a problem for both parties. Ivonny’s job is to take their ideas, ensure they are functional as well as aesthetically beautiful, and then pass on to the construction team what needs to be done.
Design, just like construction is often an easy title to throw around and often the thought of an expensive designer immediately turns clients off before they even venture into understanding how different individual designers can be in their processes, tastes and price tags.
At FairTradeWorks, the pricing makes sense to our consumers. For a nominal hourly fee, our clients can see what they are getting for their money including:
- Computer-based drawings – 2D & 3D drawings with dimensions. This ensures that the dimension will be accurate.
- Material proposals — Based on our design team’s experience, they will propose materials that will best fit the space & design preferences that suites the client’s tastes, without going overboard on the budget.
- Material sourcing — Instead of clients going to different places to look for the materials or asking where they can find the sink they like on Pintrest, our designers take on the burden of sourcing the materials they have chosen.
