The first step in every Roomscapes design project is to visit our 15,000 square foot Cabinetry and Design Showroom just off Rte 3 South on the Hingham line. The Showroom is convenient to Boston and the western suburbs as well as all the communities on the South Shore. During that visit, you are invited to have a cup of tea or coffee and browse our showroom to get ideas about cabinetry, fixtures, tiles and finishes from our displays. Should you have questions, you can meet with a member of our staff or a member of our highly qualified design team. For your convenience, our designers can meet with you personally, or you can invite your architect, interior designer or builder to join you to discuss your project. This initial consultation is free.
If we can help in any way, call 781-616-6400 for assistance.
Our design professionals evaluate your existing space or available blueprints and conduct a preliminary design study. At a subsequent meeting, the designer will present two or more layouts. The layouts give you a clear idea of how we will approach the project and give you the opportunity to ask questions and suggest alterations to our plans. Next, we create the composite floor plan. This plan may incorporate various design elements of each of the initial layouts. At this stage of the process, we are able to formulate a cost analysis of the project including alternatives to reconcile it if budget is a concern.
The cost of this preliminary design study will be quoted by your designer and will be applied to the cost of the project.
Once we have agreed on a direction for the project, our designers will incorporate your ideas into final drawings to include floor plans, elevations, and mechanicals. These will be used to not only finalize the design process and detail the full specifications of your cabinetry, but also to specify your appliance selection, color and finishes for all materials. We always provide accurate cost estimates for the entire project.
At the outset of this phase, a 40% deposit of the total estimated cost of the project is due.
After all materials are selected and you have signed your agreement for design services and purchase of materials, we will schedule your project for delivery. If you choose to use our sister company, Roomscapes Inc., for your installation and/or remodeling, a separate agreement will be prepared.
