1. Why should I hire you for E-Design?
An educated interior designer has the skills to not only provide stylish decor, but to create strategic plans for a specific space. We make sure the clients home has a consistent flow and that everything has a place. We save the client money by helping them not make costly mistakes. We offer E-Design because we know that sometimes a clients budget doesn’t always allow to hire us on full time. We created this package so that everyone has access to being able to create a beautiful design!
2. What are your fees?
Our fee schedule is as follows:
$750 for one design board of one space of clients choosing.
$500 for each additional space and design board
We bill for our design fees after the Letter of Agreement has been signed and e-mailed back. We will not begin any designing until invoice is paid. If you decide to add on an additional space or request an additional revision of a current space we already designed you will be billed before we proceed.
3. How do you charge for your services?
ParcelHouse Design maintains industry competitive design fees, billed at our E-Design hourly rate of $75/hr. We will spend up to 10 design hours creating your perfect design scheme for each space allotted. We prorate our design fee for additional rooms you would like for us to help you with to $50/hr. Keeping at a 10 hour per room max, helps us keep our costs down so that we are able to offer a more affordable option for design work.
4. When should I expect my design?
With good design comes spending some quality time to fully think out your project. Please expect anywhere between 2-3 weeks from our receipt of all needed items for a completed design scheme to be sent your way!
5. Am I expected to find my own contractors?
Yes. Unfortunately with this package we are hands off when it comes to any trade work you may want. If you need some references we will be more than happy to point you in the right direction.
6. Do un-signed contracts expire?
Yes. There is a 3 day grace period for un-signed contracts for you to review and make the decision on whether you would like to move forward with our services. We have a 3 day expiration so that we are able to schedule out other clients who are also inquiring about our services and requesting to get on our books. If the contract is not signed within the 3 days we will assume you have decided not to use our services.
7. How often should I expect communication with you?
Weekly check-ins can be expected every Monday in order to provide status updates on your project. All communication will be done through email. Expect answers to any questions you have to be given via email at our weekly check-in.
8. If I have an open floor plan and two rooms are combined, which room do I select first?
In this case, we strongly suggest you purchase a design plan for both spaces. Spaces which open into one another tend to feel like a single space, and it’s not possible to truly transform the look without taking into consideration everything your eye sees in its single view. If this option isn’t feasible at this time, select the room that is used more often.
9. What happens if I wait to purchase an item, and then it’s no longer available?
If something becomes discontinued you can always shop for a similar item but we recommend that before purchasing our service, you wait until you are financially and practically ready to implement a design change. The world of manufactured goods is a rapidly changing one, and there are no guarantees that the item specified today will be available weeks or months from now.
10. Can I purchase an E-Design room package as a gift?
Definitely! Our E-Design room packages are great housewarming, newlywed gifts, and much more.
