Consultations are ideal when planning large renovations such as kitchens and basements, and are useful for assistance with outdoor living spaces and office layouts. Simply Design offers 3 Consultation packages:
1. Basic Consult; This service is ideal for anyone who just needs some ideas and help making choices. The meeting can focus on just one space or we can cover as many spaces that you can fit into my 2 hours visit. This is best when you have some samples you have already collected and need some help making the final decision, or let me know what you are looking for in advance and I will bring some items with me to our meeting to help give you direction. Included:
- 2 hour. in-home meeting where we can look at samples and colours, images and idea’s and also discus options and direction to go, and or help you decide where to start. Sometimes small diagrams and sketches may be created when applicable.
- Establish what you are looking for in the space for function/use, furnishings and colour and connect you with suitable trades people and/or give you idea’s on where to shop to fit your needs, timeline & budget.
