Our design process

Only five steps to your dream home

As every client’s needs are different so too is our approach to your home design. On our first meeting, we like to understand what lead you to contact us, to get a feel for your personal style and how we can assist you. We then tailor a Fee Proposal & Scope to suit your specific needs for your home design project.

This is just the beginning of a running dialogue where we will discuss, propose and welcome feedback on planning, design concepts, style direction, selections and costings etc. We are sure that by the completion of the project we will have delivered a final outcome you’ll be completely in love with.

Consultation-01

After making contact with us we’ll organize to meet with you and discuss the Design Brief for the project. It is at this time we will get an idea of your functional requirements and style preferences. Feel free to bring along any images you may have collected & copies of the floorplans if available, it all helps us to get a better understanding of your hopes & expectations for the design of the space etc.

Usually at this point we will take an inventory of any existing furniture you may wish to incorporate, take photos and also if required take any measurements of the space.

Idea-01

Taking away all the brief information we will then start to develop a vision for your project. We generally start by sourcing a selection of images and gain feedback from you to see if we are all on the same page and heading in a style direction that you’re comfortable with or inspired by.

We move forward and create design concepts for your home design which may consist of visuals such as elevations & sketches which will give you a good indication of the final product.

Selections-01

We will then firm up the overall concept by proposing Colour & Finishes that we believe will be suitable. These selections could vary from choosing benchtops materials, paint colours, Fabric swatches, Wallpapers,Wall & floor tiling through to Cabinet work Hardward & fittings selections such as curtain rods and skirting trims etc the list can get quite big it’s sometimes surprising how much can go into making a room finished.

At VisualQ we have an eye for detail and we will source whatever is required to achieve not only the look you’re after but also ensure the functional purpose is not overlooked.

Documentation-01

With your budget in mind we can source Products on your behalf. Generally it’s items like Furniture, Lighting and Decorative items such as Artwork & Rugs etc. We have many local industry contacts and online stores we regularly access and can recommend along with access to our Trade discounts and pricing.

If the project requires Documentation, drawings will be produced by the studio to obtain quotations from trades such a tilers, cabinet makers and or builders etc . We are also on hand to liaise with trades and suppliers on your behalf to obtain costings & place orders etc.

Installations-01

In this final stage we work in partnership with Suppliers, Trades & Builders to ensure installation on site is smooth and that you are happy with the final result. Styling is one of those finishing off elements that really make the space come together and we have a natural eye for what looks good so we’ll happily help you with those last minute touches.
