Design Services / Questions & Answers
I have a strict budget for my design project. Will Get Organized! designers work within my budget and allow me to approve increases in expenses?
Yes. The designer will collaborate with the client to make changes as needed to stay within an approved budget. The designer will have the technical skills to create beautiful spaces and the business skills to understand budgets, timelines, and communication with clients and contractors.
Do all the designers at Get Organized! have credentials, references, and a portfolio to build confidence with the client before the start of the project?
Yes. Our designers have a degree in Interior Design or a combination of certifications in design and decorating. Get Organized! can provide more information prior to booking the consultation.
I am not sure of my exact design style or the scope of what I want for my design project. Will the designer help me determine these items?
Yes. The role of your designer is to ask questions, look around your current home, and show samples to see what you love. The result of the meeting with the designer is a Design Scope which includes the discovery of your style preference and a plan of action.
Why are purchases of furniture and furnishings paid directly to the designers or vendors rather than paying Get Organized!?
Our designers have their own resources and, in some cases, obtain special discounts on products or rates with vendors. Because of these unique relationships and resources, the designer will bill these items separately to you with your approval.
Do you price designing short-term rentals the same as your other design services?
No. We offer fixed fees for design based on the size of the rental unit. Design services include design style, color scheme, furniture and flooring selection, and more.
When staging a person's furnished home, do the designers move furniture?
The designers may move light furniture during staging appointments, but if there is a lot of heavy or bulky furniture in the home, the designer will hire our Get Organized! Support Services at an additional cost to the client.
Is there a staging option with the designer providing suggestions for furniture placement and accessories and the client doing the work?
Yes, we have an in-person Walk and Talk and a Virtual Walk and Talk for furnished homes. Vacant homes must start with an in-person consultation with a designer.
