We Are here For You
~A true designer designs for the client, not themselves.~
When you select us for a Full-Service Residential Design, our team’s first step is to examine the home in detail to provide you with a solid plan of action.
First we like to get an overall feel for the home of your dreams, we can then begin immediately creating vision boards and concepts so you can visualize and fully embrace the design intent. It is paramount to work with the client closely to make sure your taste and style is fully addressed.
If you’re a Homebuilder and would consider engaging us for a spec or model home, simply send us an email with your budget numbers and we’ll definitely respond on its feasibility.
Perhaps you’ve hired designers for past projects, and simply wish for a set of new eyes. Please don’t hesitate to reach out. Our relationships with homebuilders, contractors and architects are vitally important to us.
Commercial design should provide an environment suitable for the overall business needs of the company. It is beneficial to hire a designer who understands the safety and welfare of the occupants.

Our Main Skills
Memorable environments and beautiful décor can have positive influences in our lives. Hire us to start working on your project immediately, we can then provide you with an uninterrupted design vision, more suitable spatial planning, and better layouts overall.
We dedicate a significant amount of time to the details on how something is constructed and expect a high level of craftsmanship in our designs. We specialize in providing detailed interior architectural drawings and will visit the jobsite regularly during construction to help answer any questions and ensure proper communication. Please contact us for additional fees and hourly rates to provide this often over-looked service.
To visually communicate our design ideas we use Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) for construction documents which allows us to be more efficient with our time and your dollars. We typically provide each client with a complete set of construction documents that are all properly labeled with materials, patterns & dimensions. With these drawings the general contractor can receive competitive bids from subcontractors and they can keep all of the parties involved at the same level of expectations.
It is very hard to separate needs vs wants. More than likely we all prefer the most expensive items with beautiful craftmanship. When working on a large project, items can add up quickly and the budget can become out-of-control. We create working spreadsheets that we share with the client so that we can value engineer as we go. Ultimately, it is up to you to decide if you can go a little over budget for something you love.
Ck Interior Design sets itself apart from other design firms because we first look at a space architecturally and not just as rooms to fill with draperies and pillows. We concern ourselves with how you will ultimately interact efficient and safely with your surroundings. Comfort & organization (ergonomics) can improve the overall quality of a design.
Once we get a feel for the style we start choosing pieces that are unique and specific to fit a space. To help communicate our ideas we typically use photoshop to present our ideas in a collage board so the client can see items together and the flow of the space. We can also sketch interior perspectives to help communicate ideas to the client or board.
We will guide you through the infinite choices in cabinets, countertops, flooring, plumbing, appliances and lighting to design an efficient yet luxurious kitchen or bath. Not all specifications are equal so we are here to tell you which ones we think are better and why. Also, choosing the right paint colors & finish selections is extremely important. With our experience we know that colors appear different on the walls & large surfaces than on a small sample.
