Design Process:

 At Andrea Rodman Interiors, we are here to listen to you. The entire design starts with your vision and your ideas. Through this foundation we are able to create the details and ideas that formulate the home or space of your dreams. Listening and translating your needs is our mandate and the inspiration for what we do.

Our area of expertise is mainly new construction and large-scale renovations as well as landscape design, decorating and lighting design and multi – family developments.

Phase 1 Concept Design:

ARI will develop a fully custom design strategy, which will define the overall look and feel of the space and make sure that the layout works for the client’s lifestyle and maximizes the functionality of the space.

This phase consists of:

 

        Reviewing and improving layouts as part of the spatial planning

        Selecting conceptual images to show design intent (mood boards)

        Presentation meeting for above

        Reviewing and drawing up furniture layouts

 

Phase 2 Drawing and Specifications:

 

ARI develops the concept design and produces a package of drawings and specifications to show design intent. The design is tailored to the client’s tastes, lifestyles, and personal style. This package comprises of:

 

        Floor plans elevations

        Finishing samples for each area

        Concept images to further illustrate design intent

        Finishing schedule and marked up drawings

        Specifying bathrooms and sanitary ware

        Specifying wall and floor finishes

        Coordinating Cabinet, Lighting, Electrical, and AV consultants

 

Phase 3 Project Management:

 

This is the stage of the project when we ensure that the approved designs are implemented on site. We will liaise with site contractors and consultants to ensure that the drawing and design concept envisaged by ARI and the client are executed accurately by the contractor.

 

Phase 4 Furniture, fittings, and Extras:

 

Specification: This is the stage where ARI designs and costs all the furniture and furnishings for your property.

 

ARI will prepare a comprehensive detailed spreadsheet for each room with images and specification including furniture finishes, fabrics and color information. We will specify size, finishes, fabrics where applicable, as well as costs and supplier details.
