DESIGN PROCESS

4 STEP

STRATEGY

It took nearly a decade in the design industry for the following epiphany; no matter the scale of a project, the process remains the same. This is what sets R Smith Interiors apart. My strategic approach to every design ensures a thoughtfully beautiful, complete design.

Prior to engaging my design services, I recommend to shoot me an email. Feel me out. The design industry is convoluted on the best of days, so I am more than happy to answer your questions. We can also use this communication opportunity to establish a quote for the design fees required for your project. Once you have a better idea of what services you'll need, you can schedule a 30 minute telephone interview at no charge. This acts similarly to a first date, where you have the opportunity to assess our chemistry and confirm that I am the best fit for your project. 

1. ASSESSMENT

Varying from 45 minutes to 3 hours, our first on-site meeting will establish your scope of work, and assess your lifestyle needs and aesthetic preferences. Measurements and catalogue existing furnishings where required.

  • On-site review with Client

  • Questionnaire

  • Site Measure & Cataloging

  • Scope of Work for Project

  • Inspiration images from client

  • Design Schedule

2. CONCEPT

Where the dream starts to become a reality. Through email submissions and concept meetings, you review your design with the opportunity for adjustments and revisions are made where required.

  • 2D Concept plans

  • Technical Space Planning

  • Design & Showroom Meetings

  • Appliance & Fixture Selection

  • Furniture, Lighting & Decor Selection

3. EXECUTE

With design concepts revised and approved, all final elements applicable to your project are provided, such as construction drawings, drawings for permit submission, and the full specifications booklet with complete design details.

  • Design Meetings

  • Construction Plans & Elevations

  • Lighting Plan

  • Detail & Millwork drawings

  • Final Specification Booklet

4. ADMIN

Optional service. To find out if your project is suited for Admin services, please head over to the FAQ page.

For construction based projects, I monitor your project progress until it's completed to ensure compliance with your design plan during construction based projects. For room design projects, I assist with ordering furniture and scheduling delivery, installation and assembly where applicable.

  • On-site inspection during construction phase
  • Offer drawing revisions and re-select materials on the fly during construction
  • Order furniture & accessories

  • Delivery & Installation
