Frequently Asked Questions About Home Design & Remodeling Projects
How much do interior design services cost?
This is probably the number one question. Kellie Toole Interior Design, Ltd offers consultation services as well as purchase based services where the design time is complimentary. Meaning, you may just need a couple of hours of help if you have the time and talent to source the products yourself. Or, you may need a full design plan where we facilitate the project for you. These projects are often a combination of purchase and consultation. Once we discuss your project and priorities we can best suggest the most efficient and cost effective route for you to go.
How long does it take?
Forever! No, all kidding aside, projects do take some time to complete. We are always excited about working on new projects. If we aren't, we don't take the job. It isn't fair to anyone involved. Pending the work load, it usually takes about 2 weeks to deliver a design plan. From there, it depends upon how quickly you make decisions. Of course remodeling is highly based upon contractor schedules and again product availability. Furniture orders can be as quick as 4 weeks and as long as 16 weeks (or longer) depending upon availability and the dreaded back order. But you will always be kept up to date on any order you place with us and we will do our best to get it here as quickly and safely as possible.
Where do you shop?
We have access to hundreds of suppliers across the country and the world for that matter. We have our own accounts with manufacturers, just like your local furniture store. We attend the High Point Furniture Market to visit our current manufacturers and vendors, as well as sourcing new lines. So, in answer to your question, we source our extensive resource library to meet your needs. However, if you need to see something in person or have an affection for a particular store, we can definitely consult with you.
What's the difference between a Decorator and a Designer?
Sadly there isn't legislation in Ohio protecting our profession as an actual profession. It is important to do your homework and make sure whomever you are working with has the experience and educational background to meet your needs. Decorators typically deal in fabrics, furnishings and other home fashions. Designers definitely do the same, but have the additional educational background to dive into the construction and architectural details needed to build (or fix) a space.
