Designing Backwards

Stand out interior design doesn’t start at the end of construction—instead it’s integrated into construction with intentional space planning from blueprint review through final build. Involving interior designers in the building process from the beginning yields custom, highly aesthetic, functional results. Everything Home Design’s unique construction background provides increased opportunity to work seamlessly with builders to evoke well-thought-out spaces. Our secret? Designing backwards.

Designing Backwards?

Designing Backwards simply means, backstepping a room design vision to the studs (literally). This planning exercise helps identify precisely what is necessary to execute the vision in mind—you might think of this as “getting your ducks in a row”. For example, does the footprint of the space need to be altered in any way to achieve maximum design potential, are utilities like electric and/or plumbing accessible, are any construction changes necessary to accommodate custom built-ins, and so forth.

Unlocking Potential

Fully-immersed interior designers are more involved than finish decorators. Start-to-finish interior designers consider transformative options for a space prior to completed construction, unlocking virtually unlimited design potential. Then they work hand-in-hand with builders to construct spaces that harmonize end design goals.

Achieving Big Looks

Home-A-Rama is a perfect example of interior designers and builders working collaboratively to achieve “big looks”. Construction projects like these, that attract a lot of attention and awe, are the product of teamwork. This same level of custom design is accessible no matter the project scale—it just takes integrated planning and a supportive team that values the power of expert partnerships.

Custom Results

One of the coolest things about involving an interior designer at the start of a build project is the opportunity for fully custom results. From vaulted beam ceilings, to creative built-in carpentry and perfectly placed electric outlets—professional designers are trained to consider all the details.

Skip Retrofits

Regret is painful and so are retrofits. When an interior design plan is implemented too late, costly retrofits are sometimes necessary. Common retrofits include swapping builder-grade cabinetry or constructing a built-out storage unit instead of a built-in storage unit because a design opportunity was missed. Save time and money reversing construction by investing in the valuable experience of an interior designer from day one.
