I want to work with a designer but feel too unorganized and don’t know where to start?”
Pictures are the best way to start. Look through major and regional decorating trade magazines like Elle Décor, Traditional Home, Veranda, and Architectural Digest for any interiors, furniture or accessories you like. Highlight and make note of likes and dislikes on those pages. Anything from wall color to furniture or space planning. An appointment with Linda Chittock Studio would be the next step.
Why is it important to have our company’s office interiors designed by a professional?”
A well laid-out and designed office says a lot about your organization and its leadership. Think of your office space as a direct reflection of your corporate culture to clients, customers, vendors, employees and prospective employees. A space that is welcoming and functional promotes productivity and exhibits strength and confidence.
How do designers charge?”
There are as many different fee structures and price lists as there are designers. Usually interior designers charge a flat fee, hourly rate, markup on product or a combination of these. Linda Chittock Studio uses different fee structures for different types of projects. Most of our commercial design work is done on a flat fee basis with product markup. Residential projects are usually billed at an hourly rate with product markup. Occasionally a residential project, for instance new construction, will also be billed at a flat fee. For more specific information regarding your project please contact our studio. Our staff would be more than happy to go over things with you and design a pricing structure that works best for your job
