I am often asked a lot of the same questions. Answering them here will help speed up the intake process so that I can keep busy with what I do best- Designing!

How Do I Start Working With Kat + Co. Interiors? 

I’m just as excited to get started as you are! There are 3 easy steps to begin working with our design firm.

Step 1: Schedule a Discovery Phone Call. Once your call is scheduled, you will be emailed a link to our specialized questionnaire. Unfortunately, we can’t complete your call until this questionnaire is filled out so please make sure to do so. During the Discovery Call, we will dicuss the scope of your project and your goals for your space. Your call will last 15-20 mins but we give you all the time you need to feel comfortable with our process and how we will bring value to your project. The Discovery Call is also a good opportunity for you to see if we are the design firm for you. There is no cost or obligation associated with this call.

Step 2: Consultation. After you have completed the online questionnaire and the Discovery Call, We can then schedule an onsite Consultation with our principal designer, Kat. The Consultation is a paid meeting and we require payment in full to guarantee your spot in her calendar. Once your Consultation is scheduled, you will be emailed details on what to expect and ways that you can prepare for our meeting. Yes! You have homework too! Kat will come prepared to your meeting with a list of questions and you are encourged to do so as well.

Step 3: Plan of Action After your consultation, Kat will return to her office and formulate a plan of action for your project. Each project is different and a no two plans of action are ever the same.

How long will my project take? 

Great question! There’s no set in stone timeline rule when it comes to designing your home but it generally takes longer than most think, especially now that COVID-19 is delaying everything and anything.                                                                        

There are many factors that affect the design process such as your decision-making style, connecting with contractors, and product availability but based on my experience, a typical timeline format is as follows:                                                       

Residential Remodel:
2-6 months for design and selection process
2+ months for permits
2-6 months for construction     = 6-14 months                                                   

Kitchen/Bath:
2-6 months for design and selection process
2 months for permits
2-6 months for construction     = 6-14 months                                                                           

1 Room Decorate:
2 months for design and selection process
3 months for ordering, manufacturing & deliver
2 weeks install.    = 6 months                                                                                         

*Remember ~these are guidelines only. Your project make go slower – or faster! ~ depending on the various factors I mentioned above. I am currently booking large projects in 2 months advance so that would be in addition to the time frame displayed.

Can I hire you just to give me ideas and feedback?

Absolutely! We can discuss hiring me at my Consultation rate and I will give you all the feed back you need. Consultations generally run 1-2hrs. Contact me so that we can set up an appointment today!

I am building and need help picking lights for all of the rooms. Can I hire you to help me choose?                                                                                                             

I love lighting! I have already put together whole home packages of lighting that blend together but the fixtures aren’t so matchy-matchy. Your friends will be asking~”Where did  you find such beautiful lighting?!” My packages are based on budget and we can most certainly work out a custom lighting design package for you. Contact me so that we discuss your lighting options.

I am overwhelmed with choosing window coverings. Can you help me cover my windows?                                                                                                                            

Windows are another fav of mine. I work with a few Canadian blind companies that I absolutely LOVE and recommend for all of my projects. I also deal with various work rooms for custom drapery and blinds to give your windows that specifically designed for you look.
