The 5-Step Design Remodel

One of the biggest complaints you hear throughout the home remodeling and renovation field is that clients never understand what is happening during their design and renovation project. Here at Nicolette Design Remodel, we never want to hear that come from our own clients. That is why we emphasize transparency and constant communication with each and every client.

This transparency begins with our well-defined design process. You can expect to experience the following steps when you sign on to work with us.

Step 1: The Initial Consultation

We will meet with you to discuss the scope of work. For example, if you are looking for a designer to design and actualize a kitchen remodel, we will sit down and discuss everything from new surfaces, flooring and lighting to design style preferences and budget. We will carefully walk you through what you can expect and provide you with a timeline and action item list.

If we feel like we are good fit for one another, we may dive deeper during this consultation, reviewing your design preferences to get a better sense of what your vision looks like.

Step 2: The Design, Part One

Once our consultation is complete, and you decide to move forward with our services, we will make selections based on our initial consultation such as lighting, fixtures, flooring and décor for you to review at our meeting. This will help us weed out what you do and don’t like. We will also create preliminary construction drawings for you to look at and will discuss any changes that need to be made.

Step 3: The Design Part Two

We will reconvene with finalized selections and construction documents, including lighting floor plans, electrical floor plans and 3D renderings. This is where your project really starts to take form and you can see the space come to life.

Step 4: The Collaborative Installation

As your designer and project manager, we will provide oversight at every step of the process. We will do everything from scheduling cabinetry measuring to coordinating installation including surfaces, fixtures, appliances, and more . We will make sure all parts of process are moving at the right pace all along the way.

Step 5: Remodeling Services

We also offer full remodeling services to bring your project from design all the way through to project completion. If you choose to work with our team on bringing your design to life, we will organize every detail of the project. This includes scheduling all aspects of your remodeling project and purchasing selections such as fixtures, flooring and lighting. We will make sure the full project runs efficiently and that we complete it in a timely manner.

Step 6: The Final Walkthrough

Once your design and/or remodeling project is complete, we will perform a physical walkthrough of your space with you. Our goal is to ensure you are happy. We will ask if you feel that all work performed and items selected are up to your standards. If not, we will set up a time to make final adjustments. Your happiness is paramount.

But, Wait! There’s More!

There is more to this process than we can describe here. From small steps-within-steps to minor details that we catch along the way, we assure you that this is a process that we work together from start to finish. You can expect ongoing communications and support throughout. In addition, should you need anything we have yet to cover, we always encourage you to reach out.
