Design Process

At Zen Reno & Design, I believe in a collaborative approach to design that prioritizes your vision, needs, and preferences every step of the way. My comprehensive process ensures that your project is seamlessly executed from initial consultation to final installation. Here's what you can expect when you embark on a design journey with me:

1. Discovery Call:

    In our initial conversation, I'll get to know you and your project requirements. This call allows me to determine if I'm a good fit for your needs and if I can bring your vision to life.

2. Inspo Board:

    I'll encourage you to create an inspirational board filled with images that inspire you and reflect your ideal space. This board serves as a valuable reference point for understanding your style preferences and design aesthetic. Detailed notes on what elements you like in each picture are highly beneficial for my design process.

3. Initial Consultation:

    Next, we'll schedule an in-person meeting to view the project space together. During this consultation, we'll discuss your functional requirements, desired aesthetic, and any specific challenges or opportunities presented by the space. It's also an opportunity for us to get to know each other better and ensure that we're the right fit to collaborate on your project.

4. Quotation:

    Following the initial consultation, I'll provide you with a detailed quote for my design services. This quote will outline the scope of work, estimated timeline, and associated costs, ensuring transparency and clarity throughout the process.

5. Engagement Process:

    Once you decide to move forward with Zen Reno & Design, I'll initiate our engagement process. This includes:

      - Sending out a New Client Questionnaire to gather additional details about your project and preferences.

      - Signing a work agreement outlining our mutual responsibilities and expectations.

      - Paying a design deposit or retainer to secure my services and initiate the design process.

6. Contractor Recommendations:

    I'll leverage my network of trusted contractors to recommend professionals who can execute the construction, renovation, or installation aspects of your project with precision and skill.

7. Design Concept Phase:

I'll begin working on the initial design plan based on the insights gathered during the consultation and from your Pinterest board. This phase allows me to translate your vision into tangible design concepts that align with your aesthetic preferences and functional requirements.

8. Design Revisions:

You'll have the opportunity to review the initial design plan and provide feedback or request revisions as needed. I'm committed to ensuring that the final design reflects your vision and exceeds your expectations.

9. Final Design Plan Delivery:

Once the design plan is finalized and approved, I'll request the final design deposit to proceed with the implementation phase (for flat fee jobs, hourly rate projects are billed biweekly). At this stage, you can expect to receive:

      -Detailed mood boards that visually represent the aesthetic direction and color palette for your space.

      -3D renderings, when applicable and outlined in scope of work, that provide a preview of how the design will look once implemented, allowing you to visualize the final result.

      -Comprehensive material lists specifying all the finishes, furnishings, and decor items selected for your project, ensuring seamless coordination during the execution phase.

10. Installation and Site Visits:

     I'll oversee the installation process and conduct site visits as necessary to ensure that the project is progressing smoothly and according to plan.

11. Final Delivery:

     Upon completion of the installation, we'll conduct a final walkthrough to ensure that every detail meets our high standards of quality and craftsmanship. I'll then present you with your newly transformed space, ready for you to enjoy and cherish for years to come.

At Zen Reno & Design, my goal is to deliver exceptional design solutions that elevate your living experience and bring your vision to life. I'm committed to providing personalized service, creative expertise, and meticulous attention to detail at every stage of your project. Let's embark on this exciting journey together and create a space that reflects your unique personality and style.

Warm regards,

Lindsay Semenuk

Owner, Zen Reno & Design
