Slip your home

into something beautiful

 

HOW WE WORK

We provide design solutions!

When you turn your sights to design, it's usually because something isn't quite working, and in many cases, you don't know how to fix it. And the idea of taking on a design project is daunting for most...the time, the decisions....you have enough to worry about already...right?! Well, Dressing Rooms is in the business of finding solutions to make people happy. The best thing about putting your home in our hands, is that you won't have to worry about how to fix it—you can relax and leave

that to us!

Our process is simple—pick up the phone and book a brief complimentary phone consultation. We do try to answer the phone and be available whenever possible. If a good fit for each other, we will move onto booking the initial in-home consultation. And please note, Dressing Rooms enjoys the challenge of working with spouses/partners who have conflicting ideas! We want to make you both happy!

The initial 2 hour in-home consultation could be a full working design session we like to call the "Love & Leave" session or more like a "Getting to Know You" meeting prior to starting a project.

 

Some notable packages that are great for gift-giving are Designer for a Day where you purchase 6 hours of design services and use them as needed. Or Designer by your Side for 20 hours of design time to be used for projects that require some guided running around. 

The key is to have a sense of trust in each other, an artistic partnership of sorts, so we can move ahead cohesively through your delightful creative journey. We want you to feel a solid connection and have a first class experience as your personal investment comes to life!

Call today and let's get started!

INITIAL 2-HOUR IN-HOME CONSULT—$250

"The secret of getting ahead is getting started."—Mark Twain

This kick-start 2 hour meeting is perfect if you're considering some changes but need an expert design opinion to know what direction to go in. Maybe you're choosing finishes for a reno or new build—we can meet at the showroom and get that done. Or maybe you just moved in and can't decide where to put furniture or hang art, or what paint colours to go with, or you want to choose a new quartz countertop. We can bring paint chips and other samples such as for blinds and drapery, and otherwise guide you on the spot so you feel confident in your choices and are loving your vision that much more by the time we leave each other. Trusted referrals can be provided for painters, tilers etc.

 

For larger projects we would spend the 2 hours gathering important information about you and your lifestyle and the plans you have in mind for your home. We would discuss things like function, your preferred aesthetic and how much you are looking to invest in the project. This is more a stepping stone with the intention that further design services will be required.

 

More time can be added if required and schedule allows which must be paid at the session at a rate of $125 per hour plus hst. 

Choosing Colors

"Luxury is attention to detail, originality, exclusivity and above all quality." —Angelo Bonati

For design projects where creative ideas are needed with visuals to support for example, we would estimate hours needed and take a retainer to proceed. You may then use this information to move ahead on your own if you so choose.
