3D RENDERING SERVICES
Design Works Studio can model your interior or exterior before any work has been done. Why does this matter? Seeing a space before it is finished can assist in identifying anything that may need to be changed. A much more expensive task once construction is started. We can also provide renderings and floor plans for marketing purposes (real estate, new construction, etc.).
Just need some advice on your project to make sure you're on the right path? Don't know where to begin? Have some things picked out but your not sure if they work with your existing space? Maybe you want design services, but aren't sure where to start? This two-hour service may be just the thing for you. A Certified Interior Designer will meet with you to discuss your needs, give advice, and make a plan for the future.

SOLUTIONS FOR THE CLIENT & HOMEOWNER
Design projects of any size can be stressful and time consuming. Coordinating colors, fabrics, and finishes. Selecting furniture that is the right scale, look, and price point. Lighting, flooring, paint, artwork, window treatments, cabinets, countertops, architectural features. Producing documentation that shows your design intent and coordinating with architects and contractors. Let us take that stress off your shoulders. We've navigated the challenges a project can bring, which allows us to prevent issues that could cost you money. We will assist with coordinating with your architect and contractors on your behalf to save you stress and worry. Our extensive resources can assist in saving you money while still achieving the style and elegance you are looking for.
SOLUTIONS FOR THE CONTRACTOR
Our goal is to support your valuable work by handling specific design obligations. This ensures you can remain focused on the construction process and its many challenges. We can coordinate FF&E selections & specifications with the owner/client and assist with reselections as they arise. As team players, we can assist with deadlines, stock, delivery, and other challenges ensuring that the project remains on time and on budget.
SOLUTIONS FOR THE ARCHITECT
We support the important and valuable work architects do by acting as a team member. We can provide the necessary resources to assist the architects before, during, and after the design process. When brought in early we can assist with space planning and programming, client selections of FF&E (furnishings, fixtures, & equipment), provide samples and design boards, create 3D renderings for client approval or marketing purposes, and assist with drawing production.
Balancing the budget, client expectations, design process, can be a huge job, and we want to help. We can assist with or coordinate furniture plans, reflected ceiling plans, wall finish details for tile and wallcovering, floor pattern plan layouts, and cabinetry drawings to be included in the completed construction documents. We can act as a liaison assisting the owner with window treatment coordination, artwork selection, and placement. Ordering and installation of furniture and accessories. As a valued team member, we can ensure that the client and architect's vision are carried out to create stunning completed projects while maintaining the budget and timeline.

We'll work with the client and caregivers to develop a plan of action and understand how they can create a home that supports rather than hinders. Our Livable Home service will help.
