How We Work

A Design Professional Will Come to You

Shivers’ Design Team brings years of interior design experience right to your home or office. Our design professionals are equipped to help you determine the products and design that work best for you within the colors and lighting of your surroundings. Since our meetings take place in your home or office, we’ll work with you to help visualize a design solution that aligns with your taste, space, and budget. Our personalized approach ensures that everything we recommend will fit perfectly within your existing furnishings and space.

Initial Meeting & Tour of Your Home

During the initial meeting, a tour of your home or office helps the designer understand the space, the lighting and other elements that will be considered in the design plan. Your style and functionality for each space along with identifying any existing furnishings that would be included in the plan are also mutually determined. While this appointment should last at least an hour, regardless of the time, it is always complimentary. Once the budget parameters are established, we may schedule a second appointment where we will present our design recommendations to take your home from inspiration to reality. Then, we get to work!

Design Plan & Second Appointment

Back at the designer’s studio, sketches, renderings and floor plans are created along with selecting colors, wallcoverings, lighting, fabrics, furnishings, accessories, bedding, window treatments and all finishes. We select from our wide variety of home furnishings products to meet your style and budget requirements. On the second appointment our design professional will present the design along with finish and fabric selections as well as renderings needed to help you visualize your new space. Together, you and the designer discuss the presentation and make any necessary adjustments. When decisions are reached, next steps such as timetable and communication are discussed. Then you can relax and look forward to your new space as we handle all the ordering, scheduling and installation!

Delivery & Installation Day!

When the big day arrives your custom design will be delivered by furniture professionals and installed by interiors experts all supervised by your designer. We stage your space with all the items in your design and accessorize them in order to provide an exciting reveal. All you need to do is enjoy your newly designed space!
