Interior Redesign FAQ's

Interior redesign uses your existing furnishings and accessories to create wonderful new living spaces.

What is interior redesign?

Interior redesign is the art of transforming your living spaces while using the furniture, art, and accessories you already own.   Interior redesigners are trained in the space design principles of scale, proportion, line, balance, harmony, and rhythm, and can present  your treasures in their best light.  A sensational room can be achieved in just one day, and you don’t have to buy anything new at all.


 Why should I hire an interior redesigner?

  • Your studio apartment can be redesigned to create more spaceYou know your room can look better, but you just aren’t sure what to do, and you don’t want to pay an interior designer to change everything.
  • You just moved to a new home, and don’t have the time, energy, and/or talent to arrange everything so that it looks great.
  • You are selling your home and want it to show at its best so that you can get a top selling price.
  • Your life is in transition: you are downsizing, upsizing, combining households, or moving to assisted living, and you need help deciding what to move and where to put it.
  • You are a Realtor and want to help your client’s homes move quickly. You might even want to give a gift of Move-in services for a buyer you have found a home for.

How will the redesign process work?

First, we’ll discuss your style, how you want to live in your space, what you like and dislike about your room, and what you want to achieve for your room. Then we will begin the redesign by emptying the room of its contents and determining the room’s focal point. We will then (with your permission of course) “shop” your home for items that will enhance the transformation of your room. At this point we will use your furniture, lighting, art, and accessories to redesign your room, creating balance and harmony, and ultimately the inviting, functional, and beautiful room you are looking for. Typically it takes 2-5 hours to redesign one room.

Redesign your living room into a soft and inviting gathering place

How much does it cost?

As little as $200-$400 to redesign the average room. That won’t go far in buying just one piece of furniture…and that one piece of furniture won’t change how you love your room as much as a redesign will! You’ll see!

Do you work alone?

If you have many accessories, or if there are some very heavy pieces, an assistant may be needed for all or part of the time.  The fee for an assistant is $20 an hour. Most homeowners work with me during the entire process. They save the fee for the assistant and have a fun experience learning about how all the decisions are made.

Redesign uses your accessories to create ambianceWhat happens if something breaks?

You can rest assured that we’ll be as careful with your treasures as we are with our own!  In the event that something does happen, Done in a Day Decorating is fully insured for damage or breakage. 

What if I hate what you do?

We guarantee that you will love the room. Some people have a harder time than others with change, and they may need time to adjust to it.  Therefore, if after a week of living in the newly redesigned space you decide you have some concerns, then we will return and tweak things for you.
