Why should I hire an Interior Designer?

I am going to quote ARIDO for this question as they put it so beautifully. "Many people don’t realize that interior design is about much more than just aesthetics. Interior Designers create functional and beautiful design solutions for your home, business, or community in a collaborative process which considers your vision, your lifestyle, and your budget. Qualified through a rigorous process of education, experience, and examination, ARIDO Registered Interior Designers are skilled in assisting clients to realize their goals, creating environments which are both functional and beautiful."

Why should I use your company?

I love interior design and the unique challenges it brings. I am hard working, knowledgeable, and creative. I am fully certified through NCIDQ, licensed, insured, a registered member of ARIDO, and am registered under the building code act with the MMAH. I can't wait to see how I can help you make your house into your dream home!

How does the process work?

1. First I am going to give you a call and get some details on your project and what you are hoping to achieve.

2. Then we will arrange a time to meet, whether in person or virtually, to discuss your plans further. This meeting will be approximately 30-60 minutes long and will help us to get to know each other and view the space you are working with. 

3. Next I will estimate the amount of time it will take to complete your project and write up a quote for you. If you are ready to go ahead and would like to work with Tricia Tack Designs just sign the contract and send the retainer fee.

4. Finally, the fun part! I will start working on your design and you will be on your way to making your dream a reality!

How much does it cost?

The cost of your design will depend on the scope of work that your project needs and how much time it will take implement the design. I recommend having a look at our Services page and then give me a call or ​email to discuss your project in more detail.

How do I measure my space for a virtual design?

While it is preferred to have a professional measure your space, at times it is necessary to do some preliminary measurements yourself. The most important parts of the room to measure are the walls, location of doors, windows, fixed items (including plumbing, outlets etc.), and ceiling height. Here is a short video I found on YouTube that helps to explain it in more detail. Please note: If you are ordering custom furniture, cabinetry, or getting something installed, you should always have a professional measure for you.
