RELATED TO DESIGN SERVICES
Do I have to pay for a consultation?
Virtual consultations are completely free and designed to get to know you, your home and your design needs. I’ll also be able to answer any questions you might have about working together.
We also offer in-home consultations for $150. Still designed to get to know all about your home and needs, but a little more in-depth due to being able to walk through the home with you in person.
What is the first step in hiring Maria Murphy Creative for my design needs?
We’re so excited for the potential to work with you! To start you can schedule your free or in-home consultation. Once we finalize the scope of work and timeline, you can then secure your spot on my calendar with a non-refundable working retainer (amount depending on scope of work).
What do you charge and how are do you calculate your fee?
We know your investment is very important to you. And we’re so honored you’re considering working with us. We believe in being as transparent as possible with pricing so you know up front what to expect. We charge our design services at an hourly rate with minimums depending on type of service. No two projects look exactly the same, therefor neither are my rates or hourly minimums. Estimates are included in your proposal following your consultation.
One thing to note is – as a trusted ASID member, we’re continually adding new trade partnerships with furniture stores and suppliers who provide furniture, decor, fixtures and materials at a discounted rate. As my client, we pass along those savings directly to you, which offsets the cost of my services.
How long does the design process take?
Unfortunately there is no clear answer to this question. Each project is unique and therefore has completely different timelines. Typically remodeling and new constructions can start anywhere from 9 months and go up to over a year from start to completion. With home furnishings, you can expect the process to take at least 6 months from start to installation. To get a clearer idea of how long your project might take you can schedule your consultation today.
Do you only work with clients in the Chattanooga are?
Thank goodness for technology! With our virtual services we have the capability to work with clients all over the world.
With our virtual clients, furniture/decor installation can work one of two ways:
1. You hold on to everything that has been bought and delivered to your home. Once it’s all delivered we can fly in and install everything for you as we would for our local clients. That way you still get your “HGTV reveal” moment!
2. Final installation is on your own, but guided with our designed space planning and floor plan.
Do you provide Architectural or Structural Drawings?
We do not provide Architectural or Structural Drawings, but we do work hand-in-hand with ALB Architecture out of Charlotte, NC. If you’re interested in remodeling or building a brand new home, together with ALB Design we can make your dreams a reality!
