Full Service New Build + Remodeling
We provide full, turn key service for new construction, room additions, outdoor kitchens, kitchen & bath remodel, full home remodels, kitchen and bath refresh and closet expansions
We have made it our mission to work with some of Houston's top builders, building designers, contractors, artisans and suppliers to bring you the very best products and service.
We start by visiting your home for a consultation where we assess your needs and wants for your space, and discuss the perfect layouts, materials, finishes and overall solutions. We then present you with accurate 2D drawings, full schematics, interior detailing and materials selections to help you visualize your finished kitchen, bathroom and other living spaces.
We take care of all the details, including site visits, to ensure that our plans are being carried out according to the exact specifications. The result will be a space that is beautiful, functional and comfortable for you and your family to enjoy for years to come.
We pride ourselves on producing quality craftsmanship and a seamless design process for all our projects. This takes careful planning and skills, and extensive design knowledge and education to consistently deliver a beautiful and functional space for our satisfied clients . We bring value - from our design concepts, to the approved plans to managing the budget, and acting as your onsite project overseer
Our New Construction and Remodeling Service can be broken down into five phases
Phase 1 - Consultation + Assessment
The first step is to visit your home for a consultation and site assessment to help determine your needs for the project. No two spaces are alike and the assessment is a very important step to uncover what is important to you, any hot button issues, and your style and functional needs. This is a working appointment that lasts up to two hours, where we provide you with ideas, recommendations and guidance for the project. We will talk about layouts, materials, budgets, timeline, trade resources, priorities, our letter of agreement, and how we work and communicate with you during the design process.
Phase 2 - Conceptual + Schematics
Our design team develops detailed conceptual 2D layouts to strategize and resolve any known issues, as well as to address your style and functional needs based on your budget and time-frame for completion. We present these ideas to you in person onsite, or at our design studio; walking through all the features and options. One revision is included. We deliver a full set of schematics that you can present to your qualified contractors for bids.
This phase is billed at a flat rate based on the project size and type.
We are happy to work directly with your general contractors or suggest contractors that we have worked with in the past.
Permits are not included in your flat fee
Phase 3 - Materials Selection + Interior Detailing
The next step is to select the materials and finishes for your project based on your style and functional needs. We have relationships with some of Houston's, as well as the nation's finest suppliers of cabinetry, hardware, countertops, flooring, lighting, plumbing, appliances and wallcoverings. We will schedule meetings at our trade showrooms or bring samples to your home. To make the best use of your time, and streamline the process, we pre-select all finish materials for your approval. We will schedule a special slab yard visit to choose countertops. We complete a "Selection Sheet" with all your approved selections carefully documented, down to the grout color. You can share this information with your General Contractor for materials ordering.
One revision is included
This phase is billed at a flat fee depending on your project needs
Phase 4 - Project Oversight + Site Visits
This is an optional part of the process, but we highly recommend that you allow us to oversee the execution of the design work and materials we have developed and selected for you. We liaise with your General Contractor and Trades to maintain the integrity of the project, and ensure that the right materials are being installed as designed. New construction and remodeling projects are very involved, and it helps to have a checks and balance system to keep the project on track. The idea is for everyone involved to work together for the common goal of producing a beautiful, and high quality product that you will love, and enjoy for years to come.
We will make regular site visits and walk throughs - either weekly or twice per week and provide you with a written report of site conditions, and any communications with the General Contractor. We can also meet with you on site if there are change orders or other decisions that need to be made.
While we don't provide general contracting services, we want to be a resource to you and for the process to go smoothly and result in a space that fulfills your vision. We will happily suggest general contractors that we have worked with in the past, or assist you in the interview and selection process. We have the expertise to advise you what questions to ask and what to look for in a good contractor who will have your best interest at heart. We will be your advocate and advisor during the process. The decision to hire any contractor will be entirely yours, even the ones we suggest.
This phase is billed as a flat fee in advance based on your project needs
Phase 5 - Furniture Specifications + Interior Decorating
This is also an optional phase, but we highly encourage you to leave room in the budget for the final finishing layer. This is where your home shows your style and personality and brings the beauty, function and comfort that makes remodeling a worthwhile investment.
We work with you to get your home to look like the magazine-worthy space you dreamed of. All furnishings, window coverings, accents, accessories and art are selected and presented for your approval.
See our Design Process page for more details on this phase
We bring our design expertise and project management skills as needed on your project. We work with your chosen general contractor, or we are happy to recommend our trusted design/build professionals and skilled artisans and trades to ensure a successful completion of your project.

Next, we invite you to complete our Design and Style Assessment, found here.
The Design and Style Assessment is a great tool to help us learn more about you, your style and lifestyle, and expectation for the project and design process.
We will be happy to contact you as soon as possible to confirm your appointment, discuss your project further, as well as to discuss how we work so you will know what to expect during the design process
We Also Work Outside Of Our General Service Area
If you live farther away, or even out of state or outside of the United States, and like what you see in our portfolio, we would love the opportunity to discuss your project. You can either take advantage of our eDesign service, or we can work out the logistics and provide you with a custom design proposal based on your unique needs.
While most of our projects are local to the Katy and Houston area, we are available to work outside of our general service area and will be happy to speak with you.
