BUT REALLY, MONICA — HOW MUCH IS THIS PROJECT GOING TO COST ME?
The cost of your project will ultimately depend on your needs, desires & level of aesthetic. Whether you’re looking for a ton of custom detailing, a budget-friendly retail makeover or a mix of the two—we’ll work with you to figure out the best approach. That being said, it’s incredibly important that you honestly assess what you want to invest in your project & accurately communicate your budget to Monica Jacobs Interiors. Because your design fees are based on the amount of hours needed to complete your project, constant changes to the budget can result in increased design hours & unnecessary expenses for you--which neither of us want! Monica Jacobs Interiors never purchases items on credit for clients, which means that you’ll will always be informed of purchased and sign off on items before it’s ordered.
HOW LONG WILL THIS ENTIRE PROCESS TAKE ?
Your final completion date ultimately depends on the scope of your project, the speed of your approvals & the availability of items that have been sourced to complete your design plan. If we are sourcing through a local retailer, the process can usually go faster due to the increase of product availability. Custom orders take longer to fulliful. The initial design presentation is generally scheduled for 2-4 weeks after your retainer has been processed which gives us time to scour our resources to create the best design plan possible. Keep in mind that your designer is just one point of contact so product backorders, contractor scheduling delays & manufacturer shipping delays can happen and we do our best to manage our end of your project. Occasionally there are delays caused by weather, vendor vacations, factory errors, and other unpredictable influences, that are out of our control.
Everyone involved (designer, client, vendors and contractors) is expected to not cause unreasonable delays in the project.
