STEP 2: DESIGN
The MUSE Design Process
Following your contractor consultation, a link to our design survey will be provided in your proposal so that you can provide MUSE with more detailed information about your style, tastes, and specific needs. Once completed, we begin our design process.
Through our design process, we will work closely with you to determine the exact cost of your project. Once we have completed the design process, we will present you with the final estimate for your project. This estimate will include all the details that we have gathered through our collaboration with you. Our design process has three options:
Selection Appointment $0
This option is suitable for clients who are not reconfiguring their layout. During this appointment in our showroom, you will work closely with your MUSE designer to make material selections, discuss details, fine tune the design, and revise the budget.
DESIGN PLAN $400 - 1,200
This option is necessary for clients who are reconfiguring their layout. MUSE will carefully reconsider your space and generate a new floor plan, along with 3D renderings and storyboards. We will create a formal presentation of the proposed layout and selections. You’ll have the opportunity to make suggestions and revisions during this meeting.
Our designers* will use the photos, measurements, and notes collected from the contractor meeting at your home to create a floor plan complete with any requested layout changes.
Based on the information provided by you in your design survey, our designers will select all the fixtures and finishes you will need for your space including cabinetry, lighting, tile, plumbing, paint, countertops, etc.
Our designers will create a 3-D rendering showing the proposed new layout and the selected finishes so that you can begin to visualize your new space.
Lastly, you will meet with our designers in our design showroom to review the floor plan and selections as well as the 3-D drawings. You will have a chance at this meeting to voice any opinions or make changes to the layout, selections, or finishes.
We will have an estimate prepared for you at this meeting based on our initial selections.
Your design plan includes 1 round of minor revisions based on changes made at the presentation meeting. As a part of this revision, we will adjust the renderings, storyboards, and the estimate.
Your design plan packet will include:
Multiple 3-D views of the space
Drawings of any layout changes
Storyboards with photos of all material selections
An itemized construction estimate including the initial selections
Bathroom or Kitchen Design Plan: $400
Multi-Room Interior Renovation: $1200
This option is for complex, large, full-scale renovations. In addition to the the features provided in the Design Appointment (above), MUSE will work with you, an architect, and/or an engineer to develop architectural drawings, define the scope of work, refine the budget, and ensure that the project is executed smoothly. Price varies.*
*Large projects requiring additions or major structural changes may require plans to be drawn up by an architect to ensure proper engineering. MUSE can recommend an architect or you may choose your own. Once plans are completed, MUSE designers will use these plans to complete the remainder of your design plan. Fees for architect are not included in the above design fee.
