HOW THE INTERIOR DESIGN PROCESS WORKS
Step 1: Concept Creation
The first part of the interior design process at Dkor always starts with a concept. It is here that we create an agreed upon flow to your space.
Step 2: Design Development
After a concept is established, your project’s team develops the scope of your space further by selecting plumbing fixtures and bathroom finishes, lighting and then furniture and accessories. This is also the phase where we work closely with an architect and develop your Construction Documents, including all RCP, Plumbing and Electrical plans.
Step 3: Selections
After establishing the first layer of materials and features in your home, we develop ideas and presentations regarding furniture, lighting, and accessories. In addition to our in studio presentations, we also schedule meetings at local showrooms to view the proposed furniture in store.
Step 4: Planning and Specifications
When the design and selections of your home has been approved by you, the implementation process of the design begins. We prepare specification outlining in detail the intent of the design, as well as interior plans for General Contractors and sub-contractors to begin quoting the scope of work. We review these specifications with you to ensure all function needs are delineated.
Step 5: Construction
Now here’s the fun part! After all design has been solidified and materials have been ordered, we break ground and begin building. We work very closely with our General Contractor to ensure all flooring, tiles, plumbing and electrical items get installed per plan, functions correctly and looks beautiful.
Step 6: Procurement
At Dkor, every project is assigned a dedicated Project Manager. This person is responsible for ensuring a flawless and timely execution of your home’s construction and turnover. We are basically “on call” to make daily, weekly and monthly site visits and work very closely with all of our vendors, trades and sub contractors during the project’s partnership. Among construction management, your “PM” is also responsible for your project’s accounting, finances and purchasing.
Step 5: Project Turnover
Also know as “The Big Reveal!” During a project’s turnover, we don’t count on getting much sleep this week. This is a crucial turning point in the project as every last detail is solidified. During this time we all pull together and take on certain tasks: shopping for accessories, wrapping up any last minute touch ups with our carpenters, moving in all of your brand new furniture with great care, cleaning and hanging every last piece of wall art. After your new home is perfectly staged, we take professional photographs and then walk you through the big reveal. A very exciting and emotional day to look forward to!
