Interior Design Process
Our design process is easy and user friendly. Call us during business hours and we will set up a no-obligation appointment or stop in and visit with us at one of our three showrooms. There is Always a Designer on Duty at Gabberts Design Studio and Fine Furniture.
When you purchase fine furniture through one of the Gabberts Design Studio & Fine Furniture interior designer professionals, our designers will assist you in selecting and ordering the items at no additional charge. You may also choose to seek the expertise of a Gabberts interior designer without making a purchase, in which case, consultation is billed on a per-hour basis. Services may include consulting with your architect or contractor, shopping for non-Gabberts furniture or arranging your existing furniture and accessories. In this instance, we ask that customers sign a contract for consultation services.
Interior Design Service Myths
Myth #1: It needs to be a big project with a big budget.
At Gabberts Design Studio & Fine Furniture, we have the expertise and resources to plan and implement the design and furnishing of any size project. Be it an entire home or the smallest bedroom, we know how to get the job done. We are fond of saying “no project is too large or too small.”
Myth #2: It’s more expensive to work with a furniture designer.
Our design services are free with your home furnishing purchase, and our interior designers know from experience how to manage your budget for the maximum result. Importantly, by helping you avoid costly mistakes, you can be confident that the overall cost will be within your expectations.
Myth #3: I’ll have to use their ideas.
The main thing Gabberts Design Studio & Fine Furniture designers want is a happy client at the end of every project. That’s why they listen carefully, work collaboratively, provide alternative solutions and accommodate changes along the way to be sure you are happy with the furniture and interior design choices you have made. Remember, we want you to smile every time you walk through the door to your redesigned space.
Interior Design Services that Match Your Needs
An interior designer is your guide through the maze of possibilities available in design, style, color, texture, line, lighting and more. Having the right person to creatively blend all of these aspects of your design together can make a real difference in how your furniture presents itself. In addition, your Design Studio professional acts as:
A design & furniture advisor. Collaborating with you on the choices you want for your home and helping to set realistic interior design expectations in terms of look, budget and timeline. Our interior designers will help you create an overall plan and see the project through from the first piece of furniture to the last piece of furniture.
A design & furniture resource. Design Studio professionals have access to thousands of premium furniture not available to the consumer retail furniture market, as well as an array of helpful design planning and design tools.
A design & furniture budget manager. Our designers help you optimize your furniture & design budget. Their expertise will help you avoid costly mistakes and stay within your financial boundaries.
How to Prepare
When it comes to your initial meeting with our interior designer, a little preparation can go a long way. Before you get together, identify some of your style preferences and set goals regarding the functionality of your living space, your budget and your time frame.
Do some research by exploring designs and fine furniture online, in magazines and in books. Save appealing furniture pictures in a file. You can also tour model homes to generate new ideas for designs and color schemes, taking photos of the furniture along the way.
Decide how the living spaces you’re focusing on will be used. Get input from your entire family up front to ensure everyone’s needs are met. Prioritize your projects by focusing on the spaces that are most important to you.
