FAQS

What is full-service design?

Full-service design means your design team leads you through a collaborative process from the initial planning stages all the way through construction. At K Squared Design Studio we provide layouts + floor plans, cabinetry + lighting design, fixture selections, as well as construction drawings + specifications. In addition, many of our clients add furniture and decor design + procurement services to their projects which helps create the most cohesive design solution.

Full-service design creates a smooth client experience so you can sit back and relax while we handle the details and coordination.

How do I get started?
  1. Schedule a Call
    • In this 15-minute phone call, we’ll discuss your project goals, timeline, and budget. I’ll share a little bit about the process to make sure we’re a good fit! If all signs are a go, we’ll schedule a time to meet in person.
  2. Let's Meet
    • During your complimentary 60-minute walk-through, we’ll evaluate your home; what's working and what's not so I can prepare a proposal that fits your needs.
  3. Design Proposal
    • Within 7-10 days from the walk-through, your proposal will be emailed. It will outline our scope of work, timeline, fees, and terms. Once the contract is signed and your first payment is made… you’ll secure your spot on my design calendar!
When is the right time to enlist an interior designer?

The sooner the better!  It is best to leverage an interior designer’s skills at the beginning of the project to establish a functional floorplan and a cohesive design solution that suits you .

How long does the design process take?

Renovation design solution typically takes 8-12 weeks depending on scope and complexity.

New Construction design solutions typically take 4-6 months to keep pace with the hired architect.

How do I prepare for my initial walk-through with K Squared?
  1. Think about the space you wish to create and be prepared to share your vision.
    • What is working?
    • What isn't in your current home
    • What changes do you wish to see?
  2. Think about what inspires you
    • If you have collected images or items that speak to you, I would love to see them!
    • Get these together ahead of time
  3. Consider your budget
    • Be prepared to speak openly about the budget.
    • An interior designer can’t hit a budget if they don’t know it!
Who Are K-Squared's Typical Clients?

I have clients from all walks of life!

The clients that I work best with are clients who see value in the creative process and value the experience, expertise + processes of working with a professional design team. 

Do you have a signature style that you prefer?

While I have a definite design point of view, I pride myself on my design flexibility and ability to produce a design that fits my client's needs + style. As a creative professional, I enjoy working on a variety of project styles, which keeps me on my toes.

We will work together to find a look that complements your personalized style.

Do you have preferred contractors you like to work with?

Executing the job with quality and strategy is equally as important as the design itself.

I prefer to work with trusted contractor partners I've developed relationships with. Let me help you find skilled + reliable trade professionals that are perfect for you!
