Every Leclair Decor project starts with our questionnaire. We ask that you provide us with as much information as possible, including inspiration pictures and plans/photos if you’ve got them. This step is important as it helps us gauge whether our process and look are a match for your project.
Once we’ve reviewed your project details, we’ll reach out to set up an initial meeting (we can hop on the phone if you’re not local). This meeting is about getting to know each other, learning more about your taste and preferences, and reviewing the overall scope of your project so we can price out our services.
Based on the information we gather at our initial meeting, we’ll provide you with a quote for our design fees. Our services are always priced as a flat fee, to be paid in instalments throughout the project’s duration.
After you’ve signed on and paid a deposit on our fee, we’ll put together a brief presentation that outlines our initial vision for your home, which will include our concepts for things like colour scheme, texture, and overall feel. This helps ensure we’re on the same page before proceeding to detailed design.
Based on the established scope and direction, we get to work designing your entire home and putting together a detailed package for your builder. This package includes layout drawings, millwork designs, hardware & lighting selections, and spec sheets for anything and everything you’ll be able to see.
GETTING IT RIGHT
You’ll then have the opportunity to review the design plan and we can tweak things as necessary to make sure the design is just right.
During construction, we’re always on hand to answer questions and we plan site visits according to the scope of your project. If your build is out of town, we’ll plan a visit or two to check in on progress and ensure things are coming together as planned.
Once construction is underway, we get started on your furniture and decor design. We start with having you approve an itemized budget and then get to work on the good stuff. When it’s ready, we’ll present your design (usually via e-presentation) and make any tweaks necessary.
We order absolutely everything, and either receive & store it ourselves or arrange a receiving warehouse in your area. Everything is tracked as it ships so we always know what’s arrived and what’s still on its way.
The best part: install day! When your builder has finished and handed off the keys, we coordinate with our movers and handyman to get everything moved in, set up, and ready for you. It’s all-hands-on-deck for a day or two as we hang every picture, fluff every pillow, and prep your house for serious livin’.
