Process

What to expect at your design consultation.

A  free appointment with one of our expert design consultants is the first  step in creating a custom storage solution just for you. Here is what to  expect!

Step 1. To start, your design consultant will ask about your timeline, decision process, and budget.

Together  you will review your space discussing what you like or don’t like about  it, your vision, and potential design concepts. The amount of time  required for the initial consultation depends on the number of spaces  and the complexity of the project but we will adapt everything to fit  your availability and schedule.

Step 2. Take measurements of your space and assess your needs to design the perfect system for you.

We will design and find solutions for every room in the home for review.

Your design consultant will then take all the information gathered and create a design of your space so you can preview prion to taking action.
