You asked, we are here to answer! Lead Designer, Mike pulled together some frequently asked questions from clients. Have a question we missed? Let us know! We are happy to share all the facts about Emily’s Interiors, Interior Design services, cabinetry sales and more.
Question: Do I need to hire a licensed architect for my remodel?
Answer: In most cases, no. At Emily’s interiors, we can self-perform the drawings needed to complete many remodeling projects, big or small. We have the capability in house to do any and all drawings required for additions, new construction, and renovations including kitchen, bath, and basement remodeling projects. That’s not to say we aren’t open to collaborating with architects if needed, we have been a part of many successful collaborations with local architects on projects as well. The best advice I can give is to meet with the builder first, to decide whether bringing an architect on board will be necessary for your particular project.
Question: I’m a homeowner looking to re-do my kitchen. I know you sell kitchen cabinetry along with design services related to the cabinetry, can you please tell me a little more about your process and how it sets you apart from other companies?
Answer: We always take the time to design the entire space where the cabinets will be installed in 3D. With our 3D design software, we can accurately show what the room will look like once the cabinetry is installed, complete with your existing décor, colors, and finishes. We also take the time to draw out all of the cabinetry schematically, with our detailed cabinetry engineering drawings. These drawings really get into every single detail of every cabinet, and are invaluable to the installers that are putting everything in place. We try to answer all of the potential questions during the design process so that it minimizes questions or issues during the installation.
Question: I’m a Builder/Remodeler, can I buy cabinets from you? How can Emily’s Interiors help me?
Answer: Absolutely, you can purchase cabinets and building materials directly from us. We offer a discount program on cabinets and building materials for industry professionals. Additionally, we’d be happy to help you with our design services as well. Using the 3D designs and 2D schematic drawings described previously, we can help you walk your clients through the design process and help you help your customers bring their visions to life! We also have on staff interior designers, who can help you and your clients with material selections, colors, furniture, and décor.
Question: What do you sell besides cabinetry?
