Why hire an Interior Designer?
It’s been said an Interior Designer can decorate but a Decorator cannot design.
Many of us know someone with a knack for making a space look beautiful. For an Interior Decorator, that’s where it stops. As Interior Designers, we also have a “knack” but with more depth; backed by education, space-planning, building code compliance, working with architects and contractors, and so forth.
Our clients rely on our ability to be creative, to think “outside of the box”, and to deliver winning solutions. Ice Interior Design holds creativity as a core value through which every aspect of our business is filtered. Our Design is our art and we want to apply attention to detail and unique solutions to every project we work on, large or small.
Ice Interior Design Services
Furniture, Art and Accessories
Okay. Stop! Don’t buy furniture. We act as your store, sourcing the correct items to fit your budget and style. It’s a mistake to make purchases that may not fit into your final design plan.
Not quite ready for a full-scale remodel, or a complete design plan? Maybe you are just changing floors, giving your kitchen a facelift with new tile or cabinetry? We can show you where to start — and even lead you through the process. We can pull selections for you, or if you have several selections and just can’t seem to get them to work together, we can help out there. What direction do you run the tile? Are those the right countertops? What about plumbing, appliances, a 1/2-bath? Let us know how we can help with your interior specifications.
Interior Remodels and Design Plans
Maybe you want to completely remodel your home, or a master bath, or kitchen. We handle Interior gut and remodels.
Design Plans are for more involved projects — not only will you need help with interior specs, you’ll need accurate floor-planning for what the project will look like after it is completed. As your Interior Designer, we are there to visualize and draft your plan. You’ll receive detailed, comprehensive elevations and interior specifications to share with your contractor, providing a big-picture overview (and exact specifications); thus, they are able to give you a more accurate quote, with less surprises.
We work closely with our contractors, or yours.
Designer Line Resources and Purchasing
Think of us as the store without the overhead. You’ve likely been into a showroom and seen the retail prices on the floor. Two things wrong with that; you are beholden to buying what’s on the floor and paying a retail mark-up. We bypass both of those issues. We work toward what you want at a price that is within your set budget. Not to mention, we are there making selections that work into your style.
We are a direct purchaser. Rather than being restricted to what you see on the floor at a retail store, we can access thousands of items behind the scenes and find the perfect fit for your home. Art, furniture, accessories, lighting, (and way more). Pretty much anything you need in your space, we have lines to accommodate.
New Construction and Custom Builds
Clients come to us when they are building a custom home. Remodels, too (essentially scaled-down new builds). This is the perfect time to enlist an Interior Designer. Make your styles fit those grand plans. Fact: The easiest time to make a home or office EXACTLY what you want is by planning beforehand. Why retrofit interior design into a brand new space?
Paint is one of the easiest and least expensive fixes for your home. Choose to consult for one hour with a trained Designer; we’ll bring our professional paint decks, and provide color selections for your home.
Cabinetry and custom built-ins, custom window treatments, bedding, rugs, etc…Just ask if you don’t see it here.
We Handle Build-outs: Concept Through Installation
We offer a full range of commercial products for your office or hospitality space. Let Ice handle all the build-out details so you are free to operate your business without any additional stress. We work hand-in-hand with Building Managers to make certain your interior becomes the best possible environment for everyone who enters. We also provide design concepts, space-planning, budgeting, furniture, art, etc. — from concept through installation.
