Interior Design Services

Client Interview

All potential projects begin with an interview to discuss your ideas and how you live, what you love, what you need, and your expectations. At that time we will discuss which service or services will best suit your needs, location of your project, your time frame for project completion, and your budget. This interview can be done by telephone or in person. THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR THIS INTERVIEW. An in-person interview is usually done in the client’s home, to “size up” the project. No design advice will be give during this interview. If you are asking for design advice, the in-person interview becomes a consultation. Consultations, under these circumstances, are billed at an hourly rate of $150.00 per hour.

Full Service Interior Design Consultation

• for new home purchases, construction or remodeling, or furnishing a residence.
• usually billed at a flat fee with a Letter of Agreement
Are you remodeling, restoring, building or buying a new home, or looking forward to building an addition to your home? Do you need someone that is professional, accountable, accessible, timely, organized, talented, personable, affordable, knowledgeable and able to oversee a design project for you? Brenda Krenek’s lifetime experience in construction is extremely helpful. She is knowledgeable of wall construction, lighting and electrical plans as well as the decorative aspects of design. Please consult with us as early as possible when you decide to purchase a new home or remodel your existing home. If you plan to custom build or remodel, the best time to contact BK Design Associates is before construction begins. It is important when beginning projects like this that the interior design and decoration is taken into consideration from the very beginning. Having BK Design Associates involved from the start will help prevent costly change orders or revisions later, such as placement of a floor outlet to accommodate lighting at a sofa or a concealed tract for draperies so you do not see the hardware. We will review architectural plans to ensure your needs are being met to the highest degree. If you plan to purchase a home already under construction or just completed, we are available to determine the home's potential as it relates to you and your family. However regardless of the stage, we are happy and excited to assist you in your new home or newly remodeled home. We can also help by taking the guess work out of selections you will ultimately need to make - plumbing fixture design or finish, which drawer pulls should you use on your cabinets, paint color, floor or wall tile designs or layouts. The following are services that may be included:
• Initial assessment
