Consultation

At Before ‘n After, we understand that putting together beautiful rooms can be daunting. Assembling colors, fabrics, and finishes as well as lighting, artwork and accessories can make your head spin! Let Before ‘n After solve your decorating dilemmas by providing you with the solutions you’ve been looking for. Creating a space that you’ll love starts with a comprehensive scaled layout with numerous furniture arrangements.  After choosing a layout that functions best for your lifestyle, we select the bones of the room – furnishings with just the right blend of texture, color and pattern to achieve the look you’re after.  After upholstered pieces are chosen, we move on to selecting area rugs, lighting, artwork, accessories and window treatments all the while keeping the client’s aesthetic at the forefront.   Most importantly, we listen to and work closely with the client to achieve their design goals.

For those who have decided to remodel or build and want guidance with finish selections, Before ‘n After will help you make just the right choices. We’ll help you with space planning for each room and offer detailed advice on kitchen & bath layout and function.  We then select wall color, flooring, counter tops, tile (including tile patterns), kitchen & bath plumbing and electrical fixtures, cabinetry style &  finishes and anything else you’ll need to complete your project. Our goal is to have all finish materials on site or chosen and ready for fabrication before your contractor begins work. This method avoids delays and ensures that the contractor is focused on your project.  We work closely with your contractor to ensure that every detail goes as planned.  And of course, we listen to your input and find solutions that reflect the dreams you have for your home.

Hourly rate $125  (initial consultation, 2-hour minimum)
