Our Process

COVID-19 UPDATE
We at Aidan Design want you to know that while our showroom is closed for the foreseeable future due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our designers are working hard at home to keep projects up and running, and are continuing to create and connect with clients. “We are just a Zoom call away”, and with all of our online resources, we can provide you with all the information and tools you need to successfully start a new design project.  Please reach out to info@aidandesign.com with any questions or inquiries, and above all, stay safe.

Aidan Design is a design firm that specializes in kitchens, bathrooms, butler’s pantries, mud rooms, built-ins, fireplace surrounds, and many other custom cabinetry applications. In addition to full project work, the process of which is described below, we also offer flat fee design services. Flat fee design services allow clients to benefit from professional design while maintaining the freedom and flexibility to select finish materials as their budget, schedule, and personal preferences allow. To inquire about flat fee design services simply complete the client questionnaire and indicate an interest in a flat fee option.

Our Process

As a first step we ask that you complete our client questionnaire and provide us with as many details about your project as possible.

Initial Consultation

With your questionnaire in hand we’ll schedule a phone call to discuss the scope of your project and then more specifically your ideas, wants and needs. We give you an overview of our process and discuss in detail budget, scheduling expectations, and our design fees. There is no charge for an in-person showroom consultation.

Design

Upon acceptance of our design proposal and related fees, design starts with our field survey and progresses until you are satisfied with all elements of design and product selection. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with other design professionals.

Design Presentation 

We’ll present a design for your space approximately 2-3 weeks after the field measure. The presentation will include drawings, a collage of finishes and a budget estimate for cabinetry, counter top materials, tile, appliances, and other finish materials. A labor estimate can be obtained from one of many  contractors that we can refer  or through one of your choosing.

Project Scheduling

Once the general timing of a job has been established, we’ll develop a schedule in conjunction with the contractor and place our orders accordingly.

Construction

We provide detailed installation drawings, lighting plans and appliance spec packages for each job. We can help with architectural and structural plans as needed for an additional fee. We supervise all our jobs and ensure that every detail is executed to your satisfaction.

"To the generous mind, no detail is too small or too insignificant to be worthy of our efforts to make it beautiful. The bestowal of grace is a devotion as much when manifested in the kitchen as in the cathedral." - CFA Voysey, 1915
