New Home Build Design Service Prosper TX

How can an interior designer help you with your new home build in Prosper TX?

A new house is a big investment and you need to have a good team that can work together. I have been working on new build construction and remodeling for over 40 years. I have been a licensed builder and have built and designed million-dollar homes. Because of all my experience, I know the ups and downs of the building process. Planning and getting everyone working together is the key. An interior designer’s job is to help you with the selections of the home like cabinet finishes, countertops, hardware, lighting selections, flooring, paint colors, plumbing fixtures, appliances, and exterior finishes. Some designers are good at architectural detailing, cabinet design, and kitchen and bath design. Check their portfolio to see if they are the one for you.

What should you expect from a professional residential interior designer?

I designed this contemporary living room and kitchen using CAD. This is a 3D rendering.

Full-Service Interior Design services for large projects should include everything from 3D photo-realistic renderings, CAD floor plans, selecting paint and wallpaper, space planning, and ordering furniture, window treatments, and accessories. This also should include artwork, window coverings, lighting, rugs, and flooring.
For Smaller Interior Design Projects, like furnishing a living room or adding the final touches to your home (artwork and accessories) you should expect the same detailed work but on a much smaller scale.
A New Home Selection Service should include all selections for the home. This includes the selection of cabinets, countertops, hardware, flooring, wall and ceiling finishes, and designs and tile and plumbing finishes.
Renovation/Remodeling Projects including bathrooms, kitchens, home theaters, and wine cellars. You should expect 3D renderings, floor plans, elevations, and space planning. You should also expect selections of flooring, paint colors, cabinet details, countertops, lighting, hardware, trim, and moldings for built-in cabinetry as well as for custom ceiling detail. Some designers can design custom built-in libraries, entertainment walls, wine rooms, and cabinets.

Jim Hall McKinney, TX

The Foran’s have remarkable insight into what we were trying to achieve. After many years of buying “off the rack” furniture, we were frustrated and ready for professional help. Their help provided us with the perfect design and quality pieces that will be cherished for years to come. We were fortunate to have found them.

How to Find Contemporary for My Prosper TX Home

Contemporary Furniture Prosper TX

Contemporary quilted leather sofa.

If you are going to invest in High-End Contemporary Furniture, you should work with a luxury interior designer with experience in contemporary furniture. People looking for contemporary don’t want modern or transitional. Contemporary furniture has straighter more crisp lines. The style embraces the minimalistic look with sleek details.

Quality is something you should think about. You want to make sure you are getting that is well-made and comfortable.

A professional contemporary interior designer will be able to blend the right pieces to give you an artistic feel. It isn’t as easy as going to a furniture store picking out some furniture and hoping it all goes together. The colors need to go with your house and your color scheme. It should be planned out to make sure you end up with a beautiful home. A designer can also find some unique accent pieces (see below) to give your home interest.

In this room, I added a beautiful metal sculpture and decorative pillows to add detail.

Custom Remodeling Frisco TX

Custom Remodeling and Renovation Frisco TX

There are a lot of luxury homes in Frisco that need remodeling. Some homeowners want new kitchens and bathrooms. Others want a whole home renovation. Your home may be Old World design and you want it to be more modern or contemporary. Some of the nice neighborhoods that might need remodeling help are Starwood, The Hills of Kingswood, The Villages of Stonebriar Park, and Stonebriar North.

You need a plan

1. What is your budget, and what do you want to accomplish?

It is important to have a budget. Without a budget, it is hard to know how much you can spend on each part of your renovation. For example, you might like a quartzite counter for your kitchen, but it might cost double what a granite counter would cost. It doesn’t mean you don’t get what you want, it just means you have to have a budget for each part of the project.

2. Find an interior designer who can put your vision into working plans and add some creative solutions to your design problems.

It is important to have an experienced creative designer who is good with 3D renderings (see below and above), presentation boards, and PowerPoint. You need a designer who will listen to you and your vision for your home. You need someone who will ask questions and develop creative solutions to your design problems. Finding a designer who has worked on many custom remodeling and renovation projects is best.

3. Find a good contractor to take your plans and bring them to fruition.

One of the best ways to find a good contractor is to ask your interior designer. The best interior designers have worked on many remodeling projects and know the best contractors.

We have worked with Michael and Donna Foran for three years and we plan to continue to do so as we completely remodel the interior of our house. We are extremely happy with the results so far. Every room looks like a jewel. Michael works with top of the line materials and furniture. We can recommend him without reservation.
