What Is Full-Service Interior Design & Is It Right For You?

Are you thinking of giving your home a much-needed makeover? Are you overwhelmed by the prospect of making all the necessary decisions and carrying them out yourself? Our ultimate transformation service, or full-service interior design, could be the perfect service for you! With this full-service interior design, we will provide a custom design and then work side-by-side with your contractor and subcontractors on every step of the construction and installation process from start to finish – from helping you determine exactly what look and feel you want to creating renderings, elevation drawings, being an advocate for you with your contractors, overseeing installations, styling shelves…the list goes on. Let’s take a close look at what full-service interior design involves so that you can decide if it's a good fit for your project!

Defining Full-Service Interior Design

Full-service interior design is when a designer prepares a detailed design for your space or home and works alongside all parties involved in making the design a reality. Everything is handled from sourcing each and every item, preparing detailed drawings, engaging and overseeing trades, placing orders and managing deliveries, and final styling. Full-service design will ensure you are getting the best-curated design that suits your home and family's needs while simplifying the process and ultimately giving you a Pinterest-worthy dream home!

The DITD Ultimate Transformation Service Process

AT DITD, our Ultimate Transformation is full-service interior design and is broken down into 6 phases.

  1. Dream + Plan Phase - This foundational stage will enable us to gain an understanding of your family and lifestyle. Together, we'll explore your preferences and review spending plans so that the finalized product is a reflection of you along with how you live.

  2. Conceptual Design Phase - Then, we move forward with designing a conceptual plan. We source individual details and elements to create a visual concept, floor plan, and other drawings.

  3. Detailed Design Phase - We utilize the feedback from your Conceptual Design Phase to create a final design presentation showcasing the layout, products, and furnishings. This is where we cross over from concept design to full-service interior design.

  4. Ordering & Procurement Phase - Once all of the designs are approved, we begin ordering and processing each and every planned detail. We handle all delivery, coordination, and track any backorders.

  5. Design Implementation Phase - Trade work begins, and the DITD team provides project management services including site meetings, coordination with contractors and subcontractors, and ensuring that the design plan comes to life.

  6. Installation Phase - Our warehouse team delivers and carefully places all furniture items based on our thoughtful plan. We style each accessory and leave your home beautiful for you to start making cherished memories!
