North Kansas City’s Top Recognized Interior Design Studio SRS DESIGN
What's the difference between a remodel and redesign project?
A remodel will typically involve multiple trades such as painters, drywall, plumbing, and electrical contractors, to name a few. This kind of project will include some kind of construction, or tear out of existing materials. For example, a bathroom remodel will need collaboration between all of the above-listed contractors, to accomplish the desired end result. A general contractor may be hired for a project of this scope.
A refresh will involve facial updates, without any structural changes. Such as painting, flooring, furnishings, and area rugs to give a new, refreshed, and updated look to a space.
Do you work on renovation or remodeling projects?
Yes. However, we only do the interior work of the project. We work with builders and contractors who are building, remodeling or renovating to help establish the interior needs of that project, but we do not build.
What's the difference between an interior designer vs. a decorator or stylist?
An interior decorator or stylist will focus on the spatial layout and juxtaposition of furnishings and accessories, and harmony between textures, patterns and colors used in a room.
An interior designer will encompass the same tasks as a decorator, with the addition of focus on product quality, appropriate uses of materials and products for a given space. They can read blue prints, provide furniture plans, and drawings when needed, and have knowledge of basic building codes, and construction processes. They will have the communication skills and knowledge of terms necessary to collaborate with builders and other contractors on a project. An interior designer will have completed a degree in interior design, and is required in many states to be licensed and pass post-degree testing, known as the NCIDQ.
How long does a refresh take?
A refresh, within an existing home, that does not involve any structural changes, will typically take between 2-12 weeks depending on the scope of the project and time of year to complete.
