FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHY HIRE AN INTERIOR DESIGNER?

An Interior designer will save you time and money, and work with you to narrow down options that fit both your needs and budget. Moreover, Interior Designers have access to an abundance of trade resources that aren't available to the public, that could be offered at better costs to you. 

HOW LONG WILL MY PROJECT TAKE TO BE COMPLETED?

The timeline varies with each project, and we understand the sense of urgency to get our clients' projects completed as soon as possible. An estimated date of completion will be assigned in the agreement, and a schedule is created at the onset of the project for the everyone involved in the project to correspond with. We'd be happy to give you an estimated timeframe based on your scope of work in a complimentary discovery call

HOW DOES YOUR FEE STRUCTURE WORK?

We provide a flat fee at the outset of discussions, so that our clients feel comfortable knowing there won't be any surprises later. The flat fee will depend on the scope of work that is needed for your project. 

HOW MUCH SHOULD I BUDGET FOR LABOR AND FINISHES?

It is important to note that finishes are a matter of your taste and style, and greatly vary based on scope of work, project size, and location. We understand and respect that budget is one of the most important considerations when entering a project, and we'll propose a suggested budget in the beginning of the  project; this helps immensely to mitigate going over what you want to invest in the project, and set expectations upfront. 

WHAT AREAS DO YOU SERVICE?

We now offer virtual services, and therefore can service anywhere in the entire world. Our primary service areas are Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire.  

DO YOU WORK WITH OTHER CONSULTANTS?

Yes, we can connect you with referrals for Architects, Engineers, Surveyors, and any other consultants your project needs. We'll also work in tandem with them to ensure all the moving parts of the project are synced, and are happy to work collaboratively with any consultants you already have selected.

DO YOU WORK WITH ALL STYLES?

The short answer is yes! The process of interior design is the same regardless of what the design style is. We appreciate and have experience designing with all styles, including modern, traditional, transitional, boho, eclectic, farmhouse, to name a few. If you'd like to view our additional projects that we've chosen not to feature in our portfolio, please email us and specify your preferred design style at info@lavalinteriors.com.

CAN WE PURCHASE ITEMS ON OUR OWN?

If you've chosen the full service package, all procurement of all of the finishes is included in our service fee, including purchasing for you with our accounts/lines of credit. We ask that you do not purchase anything on your own, as we are the project managers and are responsible for ensuring all moving parts in the project appropriately fit in your space(s) both functionally and aesthetically, and that the project stays on schedule.
