There are a number of interior design packages that most companies will offer.

At the top of your tiered interior design services offering, is “full-service” interior design. Full service interior design involves an interior designer or their team managing your entire project, from the initial concept to installation to the final finishing touches.

It is comprehensive service that includes:

A Design Consultation
Usually design services begin with an in-home or virtual design consultation which is approximately 60 minutes. You’ll get to know each other and talk about your project: what your expectations are, and your vision for your space. You’ll discuss the scope of work, time frame and budget.

Design and Planning
Once you decide to move forward with the firm, a scope of work with detailed items and ideas discussed in your initial consultation.

When the contract is signed and the deposit is paid, the work starts! You should receive an overall design concept which will include a floor plan and/or furniture layout, color scheme, style, furniture, fabrics, finishes and accessories for your space. 

When the design concept is approved, the designer will start sourcing all the items and finishes. Full service interior design means that they will arrange and coordinate the delivery and the shipping of all the items, warehousing and any necessary follow ups with vendors before the installation phase begins.

The last phase of a project is to coordinate and schedule a date for your project installation. The design firm will be on site supervising all aspects of the project. Finally once everything is complete, they will do a walk-through with you.
