Freshening Up Your Home without the Hassle: Updating Home Furnishings

Are you tired of looking at the same old drab decor in your home? Or perhaps you've moved into a new place with a lot of potential, but you're not sure where to start when it comes to giving it a fresh new look. You're not alone! Sometimes all a space needs is a facelift to bring it to life. Lisa Scheff Designs can help you achieve your dream space even if you’re not tackling a full home renovation.

Before we start designing furniture and accessories, we take the time to understand your needs and create a plan that maximizes your space. Our team at Lisa Scheff Designs works with you to determine the best flow for the space. We take into account how you use the room and how to maximize the available square footage. This helps us determine the size and scale of the pieces of furniture we'll be bringing in.

Our floor plans are two dimensional drawings that lay out the flow of the room and serve as a template to create the Scope of Work and budget for your project.

Now comes the exciting part - the design process! We'll bring your inspiration to life with custom-curated designs and show you exactly what each piece will look like. From fabrics to window treatments, we've got it all covered. Our team will build custom design boards where we create a rendering of what the space will look like completed. Your design presentation will include beautifully rendered design boards as well as tear sheets of every item specified providing you with all of the details you need to make a decision. You'll also see pictures of each item and receive detailed descriptions of the pieces. We'll even bring in samples of fabric, rugs, window treatments, tile, and millwork so you can get a feel for what everything will look like together.

Sometimes, in a one-room transformation, there are still a few small construction items to take care of such as updating a fireplace hearth, adding built-in cabinetry, or painting the space. We coordinate with the necessary contractors to get this part of the project completed while we procure each item for the new space.

Finally, it's installation day! Our team will carefully and thoughtfully place each piece of furniture and accessory in just the right spot to bring your vision to life. We ensure that every detail is perfect before we leave, so you can enjoy your new space with peace of mind. This day includes your furnishings being delivered as well as a designer thoughtfully placing your curated accessories.  When we leave, your home is magazine worthy, but ready to be enjoyed by your family. We won't leave until every detail is perfect, so you can enjoy your new space with peace of mind.
