Decca Design’s Secret Sauce: The 7 Step Design Process

Step 3 Envisioning the Concept

The big picture

How does your space need to function? What are the biggest challenges of your current layout? These are questions that we are here to help you answer. Envisioning your desired space sounds simple but it can quickly become a daunting task. We want to alleviate that stress by breaking down your style preference and making it work for your own space.

How we manage our client’s needs and expectations

Sometimes identifying what you don’t want is the first step in figuring out what you do want!  We take the time to walk you through all of your options. Our goal is to mentally put you into your dream space and bring it to life.

We want to see all the magazine photos you’ve saved,    

        

Pinterest boards or Houzz idea books you’ve created that inspire you. With our eye for interior design elements, we can identify the styles you are drawn to. This gives us an idea of how we might transform your space to suite your lifestyle.

 The Decca Design team helped us to envision the possibilities of our space. Our red countertops are a showstopper! Thank you for helping transform our kitchen into the perfect, unique space we were dreaming of – CB

The benefits of step 3

There is no such thing as a stupid question!

We want you to ask us questions and explore different options for your space. The Decca Design team is there to help you envision what your space will become. We accomplish this by first listening to you, then completing initial sketches that evolve into 3D computerized conceptual drawings.

As your vision comes to life in our 3D drawings, we’ll move on to step 4!

Make your house feel like a home or transform your business space into an inspiring and efficient place to work. Whatever your space is used for, we can make your interior design dreams come true. Let us show you how our 7 step design process will meet and exceed your needs and expectations!

We want to know what’s on your Design Mind! Please leave us a comment below.

Step 2 Site Survey

What it is

After agreeing on the Decca Design Inc. proposal, you can sit back and relax while we head out to do a site survey. This is an inspection of the proposed area of work. We’ll gather information, take measurements and pictures and compile a layout for the scope of the design. There will be no surprises here! Following the site survey, we will inform you on all by-laws or code review that affects your project.

Our experienced team has an excellent eye for these tiny details!

How we manage our client’s needs and expectations

This is were our project management skills come into play!

The site survey allows us to determine any possible obstacles, challenges or concerns that the space may present as we work through this project with you. Completion of the inspection gives us a starting point to the design process!

The pictures taken during this phase will be the ‘before’ photos and a  great reference as the design progresses. These will be kept in a project specific binder to gather the information and decisions relating to your project.

  Your ability and confidence to offer creative, yet practical advice and handle every stage of the process calmly and efficiently is what allowed me to put my complete faith in the Decca Design team – PT

The benefits of step 2

While this step allows us to determine possible difficulties we may encounter, it also gives our design team a chance to identify the design possibilities. Our team is constantly on the look out for ways to be creative and make use of all the unique features of the space.

This step is vital in allowing us to identify possible obstacles, challenges or concerns that will affect the timeline and design layout. We will use this information to keep the project on track, on budget and on design!

Make your house feel like a home or transform your business space into an efficient inspiring place to work. Whatever your space is used for, we can make your interior design dreams come true. Let us show you how our 7 step design process will meet and exceed your needs and expectations!

Design brings people together.

Cooking brings people together.

The team at Decca Design Inc. can be found gathered together around the lunch table. We love sharing our weekend experiences or our latest culinary adventures.

It was on one of those occasions that first sparked the idea of creating our own cookbook. We enjoy cooking, eating and entertaining! We embrace the idea of gathering with our friends and family, sharing a meal and engaging in good old fashion conversation.

There is no shortage of recipes and entertaining ideas. We thought we would take this opportunity to share our latest food finds and entertaining designs.

Happy Cooking!

 

What feeds us as a Design Group?

What feeds us as a Design Group?

At Decca Design Inc., we love to cook!  To us it is a means to interact with each other, express our gratitude and inspire better design.

As a creative group, we can be found taking a cooking class together, exchanging recipes and indulging in our culinary efforts.

Cooking as a team allows us to step outside of our normal interactions and engage with each other.

  • We connect with our teammates
  • We overcome new challenges
  • we celebrate the fruits of our labors

The occasions nurture our team health and are times of gratitude. We would like to share a recipe from our cookbook “Tasty Designs” and encourage you to share with us “What’s on your Design Mind?”

Happy Cooking!
