What is the difference between an interior designer and an interior decorator?

An Interior Designer is a trained professional who creates and designs interior spaces which are aesthetically attractive and functional.

An Interior Decorator, on the other hand, views interior design with a largely cosmetic approach using decorative elements to merely rearrange existing spaces.

Is it true that a designer's influence leads to an increase in the project cost?

With years of education, training, and practical experience in our field, we are capable of bringing the costs down considerably. Best of all we guarantee you value for money. We design interior solutions, that ensure minimum wastage of money, time and other resources. We make sure that you get discounts from suppliers, and we also check contractors' billing. All this contributes to a huge saving in your time and money.

When should a designer be asked into a project?

As soon as possible. Ideally, you should hire a designer during planning stage itself, i.e. before the actual construction begins. This, saves you money involved in making structural changes at a later date.

How early can we start work-at-site from the day of commissioning the designer?

It is in your best interest, to allow us some time to identify and select best possible materials and contractors for the project, before beginning of actual work.

It is better than trying to hurry up initially and then increasing upon the costs due to the subsequent delays in work and the ever-changing layouts.

How long will it take for the project to complete?

Completion of the project depends upon various factors like the scope of work, complexity of the design, your own ability to make decisions using choices provided by the designer, level of planning done before actual construction, time at your disposal and flow of money.

How can the designer help me in procurement of the materials?

We handle the complete process of material procurement. We make sure that the materials are procured at the best possible price for you.

If required, we'll leave the procurement process to you.

Can cost be determined before the beginning of a project?

Yes. We prepare an estimate for the interior work for you beforehand, for your approval. All the items of work are clearly specified, quantified and budgeted. Prior to the starting of the project, we provide the client a final cost estimate. In a limited budget scenario, we can work backwards and create the best possible design solution within the given cost. We are always sensitive to your budgets needs.

Do you design based on Vastu?

Yes. If you wish to, we base our interiors designs on Vastu Shastra. We also provide Vastu based interior consultancy.
