Interior Decorating, Design and Renovation Services.

(… it all begins with a plan)

Finding the perfect designer for you isn’t just about finding a pro with the same style as you… in fact that’s like tossing money down the drain! Your Interiors Pro should focus on creating a space that’s stylish, comfortable and a reflection of who YOU are.

Only 20% of the work revolves around design.  Your interiors pro needs to have the other 80% down too — like detailed processes to eliminate errors, deep knowledge of ever changing performance materials, and a team of trade professionals who are quality and reliable.

Our 10-Step Impressive Interiors Process is designed to transform your space from tired to timeless. From our very first meeting you will feel the Comfortable Dwelling difference whether you’re a DIY-Warrior or a busy professional couple who wants every detail handled for you.

If you want to do an entire home, or just need help choosing paint colours, all of our clients begin with the process of Discovery and package selection as outlined below.

How Much Does Working With a Decorator or Designer Cost?

Download the Services + Pricing Guide to get a complete list of our process, services and prices delivered straight to your inbox.  While most Designers charge hourly, we believe in straightforward flat-fee pricing with no surprises.

Step 1:  Book a Discovery Phone Call
(Everyone starts here)

Usually what we do is start with a Project Discovery Phone Call.  This phone call lasts 15-30 minutes and during that time we will discuss your goals for your project, challenges you’ve been experiencing, why you’re seeking help, and the overall scope of your interior decorating or design project.  This will allow us to determine whether we are the right fit to take on your project and whether we can schedule you in within your timeline.

If your project feels like a fit for both of us, we can walk you through what it looks like to work together.  We’ll explain the design package or consultation that seems to be the best fit before moving into the next steps.

If it doesn’t feel like a fit, we can likely refer you to someone who can better suit your needs.  Either way, you’ll come away from the call with a clear knowledge of the design process and overall estimated costs your project will entail.

Click the button below to schedule your free Discovery Call.  Once you’ve booked a time you’ll be taken to our Getting Started Questionnaire so that you can fill us in on the details of your project and we can make the most of our time together during our call. 

Step 2:  Select Your Decorating or Design Service

 

We understand that not everyone needs full service design.  This is why we’ve created a number of consultation options to suit a wide variety of instances that will help make your home stylish, comfortable, and a perfect reflection of you.

If you’re looking for help with more than one element, also consider our Designer for a Day package which allows flexibility in what we’re working on together.

Paint Colour Consultation

Walk into your local paint store and you’ll find over 1,500 colour choices on average.  That’s enough to be overwhelming to any homeowner.

Choosing the perfect paint colour for your home cannot be done by turning to what colour is most popular on Pinterest these days.  The way colours behave in a home depend on undertone, light source, exposure, and the hard surfaces that you have installed in your home already.

Get your paint colours right and it will set the tone for exactly the look and feel you want.

Get them wrong, and no matter what you do to the space it’ll always look off.

The Colour Consultation is right for you if:

  • You are building or remodelling and want to get your paint colour correct the first time
  • You want a cohesive colour story for your home that flows from one area to the next.

What to expect from our Colour Consultation:

  • After completing your Discovery Call, we will book an appointment to come to your home.  We will be in your home for about 60 minutes.
  • We will begin by assessing the undertones of the existing hard finishes in the space.  Paint colour will bring out the undertones of your flooring, countertops, cabinetry, etc. so this is a vital step in choosing the right colour for your home.
  • We will then assess the lighting and bulbs used throughout the space and what is outside of the windows that may cast reflection in the room and change the colours.
  • Once we have our assessment done, we will narrow colour choices down to just a few and walk the space with you to discuss which is the best option for your walls, trim, and ceiling.
  • Once we’ve determined the perfect colour palette for your home, your designer will craft a detailed report listing the paint colour and codes, manufacturer, and sheen.
  • You’ll also get a coupon code for our favourite local paint supplier and the contact information for our most trusted painting professionals.

Investment:  $125 + HST
*Price is limited to one room for walls, paint and trim.  Additional selections will be charged an another Paint Consultation fee.

Absolutely Amazing! This is the thought that comes to my mind when I think of comfortable dwelling! When I first heard that an interior design company was coming to Tilbury – I was ecstatic! They went right to work fixing up the building on the Main Street and displayed the most beautiful furniture pieces! My fiancé and I had just purchased a home in Tilbury and needed all new furniture, as our current home was becoming a cottage. The home we purchased was a typical 50’s style Bungalow – with low ceilings and paneling. The thought process of styling and furnishing the home was a bit overwhelming. How do we make the size work? What colour scheme do we go with to match the 5 different types of flooring? How should we lay out this room? Then came Heather and Kyle to elevate the plan to something out of a magazine! The care and thought they put into the process is amazing and very well laid out from the word go! Step by step they develop the room based on current colour scheme, dimensions and layout. Their interior design experience and decorating ideas were priceless. It was amazing to watch and learn from them both! The 3D rendering they do is amazing! Every room was exactly what we wanted – Heather’s design could not have been more perfect!!! They source, order, store and quality check the entire order, not to mention install (which was perfect for our hectic lifestyle). They took care of the entire process- even down to the finishing touches!!! When we walked through the door for the reveal it was amazing!! To see Heather’s design come to life and the custom furniture pieces she chose was perfect. It immediately felt like home! It has been a couple weeks since our reveal and the quality and functionality of the furniture pieces is next level! I highly recommend comfortable dwelling!!! Heather and Kyle did an incredible job!!”

Kitchen Design Plan

Kitchen Design Consultation Package

Every beautiful, unique, and functional kitchen begins with a deep planning process.  How much you devote to the planning process will ultimately show in the final result.

Unlike your local cabinetry studio, we can handle your entire kitchen design for you.  Cabinetry layout, flooring choices, architectural details like windows or wood beams, tile, appliances, island stools and final styling.

Our focus is on timeless kitchen design that is functional for you and your family and won't date when the next neutral trend rolls around.  Kitchens are investments that should yield a strong positive ROI on the value of your home, not become tired and dated 5 years down the line.

Our core belief is in conscious design planning.  What that means is that we don't just take style into consideration (though that's certainly a factor!).  We also look at behavioural psychology to ensure your new kitchen will be friendly to your family's mental health and well-being (more on that here) as well as sustainability and quality of materials and how they will function over time.  Conscious design means creating something that is completely personalized to you and the way you work in your home.  And it means using timeless finishes that will stand the test of time and protect your kitchen investment.

What's Included in the Kitchen Design Consultation Package?

Kitchen Ideas Session and Concept Meeting

Understanding how you work in your kitchen, your style, and your personality is paramount to creating a unique kitchen design for you.  During our ideas session we will ask a lot of questions and look at some inspiration images to get a handle on what you like and what you don't.

Once the concept has been developed and deemed viable by trades, we will have a second meeting to review the overall concept and firm up the budget before completing the full design.

Professional Kitchen Layout

We will complete a full kitchen layout that best utilizes the space balancing both style and function.

When completing our layouts, we always begin with how you work in the kitchen and your requirements for storage to ensure that everything has a home and that you will have the best flow when working in your new space.

 

Trade Day

We will host a Trade Day at the home with our trusted team of contractors and tradespeople to discuss the viability of our concepts and get rough estimates for the work before presenting our thoughts to you at the Concept + Budget Meeting.

This ensures that everything included in your final kitchen design is something that you can have within your budget and home's restraints.

 

Material Selections

Our colour system helps us to choose materials and finishes that work seamlessly together to get an elevated final look.

We will choose flooring, countertops, backsplash, cabinetry, and cohesive lighting for your final design presentation that is sure to wow.

 

Photorealistic Rendering

Custom and Semi-Custom kitchens can easily cost $35,000 - $75,000 or more.  So being sure that you'll love the final result before you order your kitchen is paramount.

We create photorealistic 3D renderings like the one shown here so that you can envision what your space will look like and have full confidence that your design is the right one for you.

 

Design Presentation and Estimates from Trusted Trade Professionals

At our final design presentation we will present the materials, renderings, and layouts so that you can see your kitchen plan come to life!

We will also walk you through our quote to complete your kitchen with our trusted trade partners.

 

How Long Does the Kitchen Design Consultation Take?

The process takes 6-8 weeks which is why many of our clients forego doing the planning process themselves and rely on us to do it for them.  Here is a breakdown of how those weeks will go:

Start: We begin with an ideas session and measurements of your space.  Both Heather (our Principal Interiors Pro) and Kyle (our Project Manager) will meet you at your home to do the initial assessment.  Heather will sit with you and ask a lot of questions that will help her define your design aesthetic and understand how you and your family function inside your kitchen.  Kyle will take accurate measurements of the space so that we can begin the process of layouts for trades.

Initial Concept Development:  Heather and the team will spend about 10 days pulling together the initial design concept and preparing for a Trade Day.  We will do initial layout sketches, mood boards, and initial materials selections.  This is a truly collaborative team effort done internally that requires hitting local suppliers, spending approximately 8-10 hours on drawings and planning, and putting the concept in front of multiple eyes to ensure that the concept is the very best it can be in order to meet our standards of excellence.

Trade Day: We will invite our trusted Trade partners to your home to see the space, confirm measurements, and to discuss the viability of our concept.  At this point, we will provide our team of cabinetry pros, flooring specialists, plumber, electrician, and contractor with the concept and materials selections to gather initial estimates for our Concept + Budget meeting.

Concept + Budget Meeting:  It takes 2-3 weeks to get quotes back from all of our trade vendors.  Once those are in-hand, we will pull together an initial concept + budget presentation that we will review with you at our design studio.  This will be your first chance to see the initial design concepts and make any revisions to the plan or budget before the finalized design presentation.

Develop Plan + Renderings:  Once the concept and budget are approved by you, we will get to work pulling together a photorealistic 3D rendering, cohesive lighting plan, cohesive styling plan, and finalized materials selections.  We will order samples so that you can touch and feel them during our final presentation.

Design Presentation:  After all of that work the day is finally here to review your final design presentation!  We will walk you through your complete kitchen plan including the final cabinetry selections, cohesive lighting plan, cohesive styling plan, flooring plan, tiling plan, and do a 3D walkthrough of your new kitchen on our large screen so that you'll know exactly what the final product will look like before ordering a thing.

During this presentation we will have quotes available from our trusted trade partners and can discuss moving forward with installing the kitchen of your dreams!

How Does 1Room 1Price Work?

Step 1: Purchase Your Package and Book Your 30-minute Consultation

After purchasing your 1Room 1Price package we'll ask you to book a 30-minute consultation with your Designer where we will gather all of the information needed to pull your room concept together.

We'll ask you for room measurements and photos (we will provide a video on how to collect these) and review some inspiration photos with you to understand your style. 

Step 2: Review Your Design Concept

Within 3 weeks of receiving your measurements, photos, and completing your consultation call we will send you a complete design plan via our online portal for your approval.

1 revision is included.

Once your design concept is approved we will order your pieces and arrange delivery to your home.

 

Step 3: Styling Session

Your Designer will spend 2 hours in your room placing your small decor items (decor items are not included, we will use what you have) and tweaking furniture placement. 

If you'd like us to shop for your styling items, we can add on a styling package.

If you are not local to Windsor-Essex or Chatham-Kent the styling session will be a
1-hour video session and we will provide an additional styling board to help you successfully style your new room.
