Initial Consultation

The initial consultation will be a time for Katharyn to learn about your design project, as well as, a time for you to ask any questions that you may have about her approach to interior design. In order to prepare, the following is a list of questions that she will typically ask in order to understand the overall scope of your project. Please note the initial consultation does not include color selections, contractor referrals or design ideas.

  • Is there a particular design style that you like or do you need help finding your style? If you are unsure about this, but have particular stores that you like, this can help Katharyn determine the best look for your home.
  • What room or rooms would you like to have designed?
  • What is the approximate size?
  • Do you need furniture or do you already have existing pieces that you would like to use?
  • How about wall colors – are you ready to make a change? What colors do you prefer?
  • Is there a need for new flooring?
  • Are you looking for new window treatments? If so, would you want ready-made or custom?
  • How do you use this space? Does it need to be multi-functional?
  • Do you have pets or young children?
  • Is there someone besides you who will be interested in the design decisions to be made?
  • What is your budget for furnishings?
  • What is your budget for design?

The initial consultation can be done over the phone or in person, whichever you prefer. Either way you can plan on about 15 to 20 minutes of time to complete it. At this point, Katharyn will be able to give you an idea of how much design time will be required for your project.

Please keep in mind that her design time hours will be based on anything that she will need to do for your project. This includes time getting measurements, photos as needed, online shopping, in-store shopping, additional visits to your home, phone calls, and emails.

If you’re ready to get started, give Katharyn a call today at 949-734-4154.
