What Do Interior Designers Do?

Listen

First and foremost, a Designers job is helping clients obtain the ideal environment for their circumstances. Interior designers draft project timelines and estimate costs, place orders for materials, and oversee the installation of design elements. In order to do that they need to meet with clients and listen to their vision and needs for their space. Do you want a farmhouse kitchen? They will make it happen. Are you not sure what you want? They can present ideas and options for your space. To be successful, our designers must be capable and confident when meeting with clients to assess the needs for a project, such as planning the desired design, costs, architectural issues, furnishings, layouts, or color coordination.

Design

Once our Designers have collaborated with their clients on their dream design, our Designers get to work designing the space in 3D. This is a critical step in our Design process as it helps our clients see exactly what their space will look like before it goes into build. This way if changes need to be made, it will save our clients’ money, time, and headaches!

Selections

Now that the Design is approved and ready, it is time to make selections. The selection process can be overwhelming. However, our Designers make the selection process easy by presenting options based on the client’s style, taste, and needs. From light fixtures to cabinet hardware, our Designers know what’s trending and what will work within your budget.

Build

Designers must be familiar with building codes, local regulations, and universal accessibility standards. They work with builders to define permanent aspects of a space, such as the room size and wall or window placement. During build, our Designers are communicating with contractors, ensuring that everything is running smoothly and according to plan. At project completion, they follow up with clients to ensure their satisfaction.

Cabinets are the backbone of the kitchen. When it comes to configuring the cabinetry, you must take size, floor plan, style and more into consideration. Designing and selecting cabinetry may seem overwhelming, which is why Emily’s Interiors Kitchen Designers are here to help guide you through this process!

Design

When it comes to choosing cabinets, working with a professional to ensure the cabinets you desire fit your space is most important. At our Design Studio, our Kitchen Designers measure your space, listen to your design ideas and visions, then design your space in 3D so that your are able to see exactly what the cabinets will look like prior to them being installed. This way the cabinets fit the space precisely and you are not surprised at what they look like in your area once they are installed!

Style

We believe in the trend-resistant kitchen cabinet—something that will remain timeless and ensure you will not want to start fresh every few years. These are the most popular six cabinet styles: glass-front, Shaker-style, beadboard, flat-front, plywood, and natural (that is, unfinished) wood. (Stay tuned as we dive into each cabinet style in our next blog.)

Function

Our Designers don’t just want you to have beautiful cabinetry they also want to make sure that your cabinets are fully functional for you and your family. That is why we offer tons of storage options, soft-close on drawers, and even extra add ons such as charging drawers for your electronics.

Hardware

Don’t forget about hardware! Hardware adds the finishing touch to your cabinetry and brings the entire design together. Whether its brass, chrome, nickel, aged bronze, you name it, we have it at our Design Studio so that you are able to see your selection in person.

In honor of our newest cabinet line, Plain & Fancy Cabinetry being completely customizable to fit your space, finish and organizational needs. We thought we would share our favorite ways that our clients have customized their cabinetry to improve the functionality and organization in their kitchen!

Charging Drawers

One of those things you will ask yourself how you lived without. This video has over 330,000 views on our Pinterest page and we think it’s well worth the hype! Having one of these convenient charging drawers with the USB charging port inside the drawers eliminate having all those pesky cords on the counter. Having a charging drawer also helps from losing your charger, which we are all guilty of from time to time.

Pots & Pans

An exceedingly popular drawer among our clients, the pots & pans drawer. This drawer comes with movable pegs, so your pans do not slip and slide all over the place. Also the perfect place for plates!

Island Storage

Who does not love a kitchen island? Now more than ever our Kitchen Designers are creating even more storage space within our clients’ islands. For example, we usually advise microwave storage, beverage refrigerator, dishwasher, and drawers if the size of our client’s kitchen island allows it! Leaving our clients with more cabinet space throughout their entire kitchen.

Snack Storage

Objectively one of the most important types of storage in the kitchen is the snack drawer or a kitchen pantry! Our Kitchen Designers offer tons of options for how to conveniently store food. Pull out drawers in your pantry or cabinets are a great option for convenience, just give them a quick pull and you can see everything your kitchen has to offer.

Designing this Newton, MA first floor remodel and addition was a dream, and the finished product came out better than we could have ever envisioned! Our clients came to us with a request to redesign their kitchen, upgrade their bathroom, expand their living room, and add an addition to the home. We also included a custom cabinet built in for the back entrance of the home for storing coats and shoes. The newly added space also doubled as an in-home office in these uncertain times. Check out the details of this project below.

Before

Prior to our team designing the space, the first floor of this Newton home needed an upgrade. The area was dark and underutilized. We collaborated with our clients and created a design that would include an open floor plan where the family could relax, entertain, and take full advantage of all the space.

Addition

The newly added addition is the perfect place for the family to relax. It is also our client’s dog’s favorite lookout spot. The area also doubles as our client’s temporary office space, it is the perfect place to get work done.

Kitchen Remodel

The kitchen remodel includes beautiful bronze finishes and a Whitehaven apron sink. The custom island offers additional seating and plenty of counter space as well as a convenient microwave storage unit. The kitchen cabinets are Medallion Goldline and finished in Maple Dusk Classic which goes perfectly with the silver subway tile and willow white quartz island countertop.

Bathroom Remodel

The freshly remodeled bathroom is the perfect spa like oasis for our clients. The space includes oil rubbed bronze fixtures and the bathroom vanity matches the kitchen cabinets in Medallion Goldline Dusk. We also can’t forget to mention that shower tile and the dual shower head.

Living Room Remodel

The original design of the living area was underutilized, our team proposed a design that removed the existing wall within the space and now it has an open concept with beautiful crown molding surrounding. Now that the wall is gone, the space is bright and inviting.

And that is the full tour! We hope you enjoyed this design/build! For more projects like this one, be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Houzz!

We are so excited to start off the new year with a recently completed first floor remodel! This Berlin, MA remodel includes an updated open floor plan with a kitchen, living area, bathroom, and bedroom upgrade. Our clients asked us to design this remodel as if Joanna Gaines threw up on it (LOL). We believe we achieved their vision! Check out the details of this project below!

Before

Prior to our team designing/building the space, the first floor of this Berlin home needed a makeover. The area was dark and underutilized. We collaborated with our clients and created a design that would include an open floor plan where the family could relax, entertain, and really expand and take advantage of all the space.

Kitchen Remodel

The kitchen remodel includes vibrant stainless-steel finishes and a Whitehaven apron sink. The custom island offers tons of seating and plenty of counter space.  The kitchen cabinets are Medallion Gold and finished in Knotty Alder, cappuccino, which goes perfectly with the ice white subway tile. All the walls in the Kitchen, Dining, Bedroom & Hallway are Alabaster White by Sherwin Williams.

Living Room

To continue the farmhouse design, the walls in the living area, nook and TV received prefinished shiplap boards in a bright white. The shiplap is just enough where you do not need a ton of wall décor. The inviting space also features stained pine beams which ties the entire room together. 

Bathroom

This farmhouse style bathroom has an ice white ceramic subway tile that is currently featured on every episode of HGTV. The walls are painted in Metroplitan Grey by Benjamin Moore.

Master Bedroom

The master bedroom includes a 2-panel barn door outside the master closet with plenty of shelving within for tons of storage. Our clients asked us to keep the exposed brick in their bedroom and whitewash it to stick with the farmhouse design.

And that is the full tour! We hope you enjoyed this farmhouse design! For more projects like this one, be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Houzz!
